    same thing happened to me. on my laptop, when i pressed the auto and menu buttons together, it fixed itself. with my desktop, this would not work. i think that's what caused the problem in the first place. not sure, though. the changing resolution solution offered by one poster is useless. he doesn't understand the problem

Here is the fix;

1. Go to Screen Resolution
2. Select Acer Monitor
2. Find Advanced Settings and click
3. Find Screen Refresh Rate and change it to 75Hz
4. After the monitor flicks, changes it BACK TO 60Hz.

This fixed the problem for me. Hope it helps. :)

I tried this and it still does not fix my problem. I went into Menu and hit reset by mistake and that totally screwed up my monitor. Now the left side gets cutoff and no matter what I change the resolution to it does not fix it.

Whjat should I do?

I had the same problem. i think it was caused by pressing the auto and the menu buttons at the same time. doing this again fixed the problem on one computer, but not on the other. changing resolutions has nothing to do with it.

Try changing your screen resolution settings. You may do this by RIGHT clicking on an open area of your desktop, select the PROPERTIES option from the dropdown menu, click on the SETTINGS tab, then adjust the SCREEN RESOLUTION slider in the bottom left of the box until you get a setting that returns your screen to normal. Hope this helps!

...hi, i've got a 2" wide black vertical area on

That reads like an alignment problem on the monitor, rather than a computer setting.. If you have a flat-panel monitor, usually on the front, lower right or along the right side, you can press a Menu or Settings button, press + or - to the Horizontal setting, press the Select button, then press the + or - button to move the display to the right. Press the Select or Menu button again to set the new location.

The actual button designations could be different.. best if you look at the manual on the monitor.

If graphics card will let you oversize the display, it might also have a Pan option that would let you slide the display back to the right. In that case, look in the Notification area (lower right) of the screen for a graphics card icon that will let you Pan right.

Similar to TV - you need to adjust the "H" - Horizontal and "V" - Vertical. Horizontal will move picture up or down and Vertical will adjust left to right.

Use the menu button on your monitor.

Monitor's display is shifted up and right so that there is just black space to the left and all along the bottom whereby cutting off the display. cannot see bottom menu bar.

One of the buttons on the front of you monitor (bottom right hand corner of the bezel) is a menu button. Press that then using the the arrows up and down buttons go the the horizontal and vertical positioning option. Once chosen move the display as desired.

You could also press the Auto (config) button, that may do the same for you.

Black at left and right of monitor

Since this is a CRT monitor, it doesn't have a native resolution like LCD monitors. You need to adjust the veritcal and horizontal sizes to fit the monitor. On the front of the monitor there are some menu buttons. You need to open the on-screen menu, then navigate to the Horizontal Size and Position menu, use the plus and minus buttons to grow and shrink the image. If it's not centered, use the Horizontal Position menu to move it around. Use this same system for the Vertical menu and you can get your image to fit your screen. By the way, you should have your operating system running with a white (or light colored screen) up when you do this so you can see all the edges of your desktop. The buttons are tricky, but they kinda make sense. Good Luck!

Desktop is dispalyed horizontal on monitor

The Ctrl-alt direction key sequence is supposed to be used for changing your workspace. On my computer at work it changes the screen orientation Ctrl-Alt-Up - right side up
Ctrl-Alt-Right - 90 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Down - 180 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Left - 270 degrees
(If that doesn’t work, try Ctrl-Shift-R)

No horizontal red convergence control

Probably the red convergence output IC has failed. The chip is basically a stereo amplifier that serves as a horizontal amplifier and a vertical amplifier. I suspect the vertical part has failed and is not uncommon. Should be generic STK392-150's or maybe STK392-110/120 I believe. By the way when the line moves up and down that means the vertical is working when it moves side to side the horizontal is working.
