Question about ViewSonic VP920b 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

The viewable area is bigger than the screen. I

The viewable area is bigger than the screen. I can't seem to adjust it so it fits on the actual screen. A maximized window extends down below the visible screen the height of a toolbar or so. How can I adjust the size of the viewable area? This monitor is used as a dual monitor for a Lenovo ThinkPad laptop. Current resolution is set to 1920x1080. Buttons on monior adjust location, but not size. Adjustments through ATI Control Center don't seem to be enough to fix this. I'm not a tech-savy user... very average computer skills. Monitor is Samsung SyncMaster 2333sw

You probably need to go into the control panel and change the resolution for your display

I have a VEON TV model SRO9105 39 inch. My aspect ratio in 9/16 mode is oversized on screen {ie picture is bigger than viewable screen}.

Do a reset to this TV, and then check. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

My HP optical mouse goes beyond the viewable area on my HP monitor (but just on the right side).

should just have to use the buttons on your monitor to adjust the width of the screen or maybe move the screen to the left.

1920x1080 resolution-entire screen not viewable

This also happens to my vga connection to my TV.
I used my tv remote "auto" button to re-size it to fit correctly.
If your monitor/TV does not have the adjustment, you may need to
supply your vga compatible device with your monitor's driver software.
This tells your computer what monitor specifications you have.

How do i adjust size of desktop background to fit screen

If you are using Windows Vista right mouse click on an empty area of the desktop and select personalize. Click on the tab for background and there are options there to fit to screen, stretch image, tile, etc. Select the stretch image and then apply. It will make the image fit your entire desktop. If you are using Windows XP it would basically be the same steps exceot when you right click you would select properties. Hope this helps.

Picture not fitting on screen

Unfortunately, this is an internal adjustment that can not be done by you without voiding the warranty. Call the store and request warranty service. You should not have to pay to get this resolved.

Screen display size on Thinkpad A22p

your system might have damaged the systems video drivers and reverted to legacy.
try to re-install the display drivers again.
if you look in the system/device manager for the display it may just say vga , which can only give you 800x600 native mode.
if you right click on the desktop /properties
advanced /display adapter it should have the name of your video card.

Projection off the screen?

Try pressing the "Aspect/Prog -" button on the remote - it should be just underneath the number 9 key - try pressing once, see if it fits better, try pressing again to see if it improves until you get a better match
