Re: Hannspree HF229H monitor and Windows XP. Images...
I'm currently trying to solve the stretchy images problem on my parents monitor. I noticed that the left and right edges of the screen were hanging off the edge of the monitor, while there was black on the top and bottom. It didn't fix the stretchy images problem, but changing the resolution brought the entire screen into view. Hope that helps, or that you were able to solve it already.

The drivers is not a problem for your case. If you can not select the 1600X900 resolution (this is the native resolution for your monitor) the problem is at your VGA; it does not support this resolution. What is brand / model is your VGA (or if you use the on board at the motherboard what brand / model is your motherboard)?

railbird56, Common problem for ALL BRANDS of "cold-cahtode-fluorescent-lamp" back-lit lcd monitors! Here are your options!!! Cheapest to most costly!! 1. Warranty repair. 2 DIY repair???? 3. Local or distant repair. 4. possible old + cash swapout with Hannspree for refurbished same model?? 5. Trade-in for new wide screen. My best guess on your monitor (no history) is that the unit's SMPS is in partial or full shutdown mode during it's black screen moments. How much do you know about "electronic ballasts" "switch-mode-power-supplys" and how to repair them?? 12fixlouie
Your entire desktop is probably stretched left to right.
You need to adjust the resolution of your computers video card in the
display properties to one that the widescreen will accept correctly.
There is a chance that your video card may not have the correct
resolutions available. If this is the case then you may be stuck with
this view until you change coputers or video cards.
to get to display properties based on win2k or xp
Right click in the center of your desktop, choose properties, go to
settings and there you should see the resolutions available. Try
different ones till you find a good one, you may have to settle for one
that is close to your monitors setup if the exact one isn't available.
If using a laptop with a standard screen with the wide monitor, you may
need to disable the laptop screen and use just the monitor to get the
correct resolution on the monitor.
