My screen is set for full view and tried everything to make it look right.
It is on full screen but along the right side of the screen is a one inch dark area and only less than half inch dark on the left side.
It looks like a picture tube got mal adjusted. off set or whatever.
I moved in April but did not notice this till now. Could the jarring in the truck and box off set the screen or could this be another problem.
Please help if you can reply to me.

Re: Compaq Monitor Model 7600
There are usually controls, button or knobs, to "Stretch" "Move" "Pincusion" and others... have you tried this, as this is what it "Sounds" like to me from ya description? If there are NO controls on the front to accomplish this task, at the REAR of the unit there should be controls marked to show the function. Below is a link where ya will find a Manual that may help ya.

please try doing a factory reset of the monitor.
please press the menu button on the monitor itself. you can easily locate the buttons below or on the right hand side of the screen on the monitor panel.
select the factory reset /recall options with the help of the arrow/+ - buttons.
this would reset your monitor color settings to default.
Go into your "Device Manager" in Windows and find out if your HDTV monitor is still installed. Delete the settings under the monitor tab and reboot the computer. With any luck the reboot will cause Windows to re-detect your current monitor and install the proper settings. A similar process may need to be followed with your video card driver as well. CAUTION: Make sure you have a disk or some means of installing a copy of your video card driver before you delete out the currently installed one.
the description you gave was the long way right click on my computer, select properties then device manager, you will be in the same place but lots faster, plug and play does not identify the monitor or its compatible display resolutions, right click on the desktop select properties then display settings, go into advanced tab and look at the monitor, and the adapter, you can play with the setting until you find one that works, 1400 x 900 may not be supported by the video card(adapter) so that may be why your loosing the video settings. hope this helps.
Dear Lilrose: Here's how to dim your FS7600 monitor. Press
"menu" on the front of your monitor. Now press + button until
the icon just to the very right of the 12 0 clock position is
highlighted. Now press select. A graph will appear and by
pressing the minus button the screen should start to darken.
When you are satisfied, push the menu button to escape.
Hope this helps.
Do you get anything on the screen when you first turn on your computer?
If you do the windows resolution somehow got set to high for the screen to handle. To fix this press the F8 key a couple times after the BIOS splash screen goes away ( The screen that has HP or DELL, etc on it). If done at the right time it will bring you to a menu that has several options including safe mode. You'll want to pick " Enable VGA mode." From there it will start to load Windows, but everything on the screen will be large. Once windows is fully loaded find a empty spot on your desktop and right click. From the menu that pops up please select Properties. It will open up a box that says "Display Properties." Click the tab that says Settings. On this tab move the resolution slider to right right a click or two to make the monitor normal size and click apply.
i had the same problem with my new widescreen monitor... turns out the best setting (at least, for my specific monitor) was 1440 by 900 pixels. at this setting the desktop still stretches itself to fill the entire screen, but everything else is completely unstretched. (to adjust the screen resolution, right click anywhere on the desktop, then go to properties, then settings.)
