Question about Nokia Computers & Internet
How to align screen,grand son played with controls.
The adjustments you need to make are for the screen geometry. I haven't been able to locate a manual, so I can't tell you exactly how to access them. Usually there is a menu button that brings up the adjustments, and a couple more (usually marked + and -) to go through the choices and change the settings. A fourth button enters your choice. On some monitors there may be an adjustment knob/button combination. Press the knob to enter, and turn the knob left or right to adjust and choose.
Having said all that, what you want is called the pincushion setting. When set properly the image will be square. Improper settings cause the edges to bow in or out. Depending on how many adjustments your grandkid messed up, you may have to go through some other settings as well. Most monitors have adjustments for:
- vertical and horizontal position and size
- pincushion (adjust for the straightest top and bottom edges)
- trapezoid (also called keystone) which adjusts the top and bottom widths in opposite directions (adjust for the same length)
- parallelogram which adjusts the top and bottom positions in opposite directions (adjust so the sides are straight up and down)
There may a few other choices, but the previous ones have the most effect. There may be a choice in the menu to reset everything to midrange. If so, take it and then use the adjustments to fine-tune if necessary.

It sounds like the edges of the video displayed are looking like they are curved in/out? I'm racking my brain trying to remember the terms used on CRT monitors and all I can come up with is elliptical? It has been awhile since I have messed with one. In any event, start pressing the buttons on the display working from left to right. You should hit the Main Menu right away. Generally speaking, there should be a factory reset function as a last choice. If you see that, highlight it and hit the accept button (it's the one you pressed to get to that screen). In the event you don't come across that, look for a Positioning choice and enter that screen. Your choices are generally a + or - for each setting. Press away on each choice increasing or decreasing until you find the correct settings you're looking for. If you're unsure of how to get out of a choice, do nothing for a few seconds and the screen will default back. Let me know if I need to clarify anything or you need a little more help. Grandkids are pesky but I've always found them worth it!
