    Mine does the same thing, particularly noticible on fine text, which seem to "squiggle" or look as if they are under water.

    Which adjustment fixes this? Thanks!

If it is adjustment problem then you will have to check it with operating manual picture distortion might be due to horizontal section also if adjustment does not serve the purpose. if you are not a tech person get it done by tech person.

Need to reconnect internal video cables

I don't understand what you are trying to say, but this is what I think you're saying. The onboard video card went bad and now you need to put in another one so that you can connect the monitor.

If that's true, you don't put another video card on the motherboard. You go out and purchase a Video Card that goes into one of the available PCI Slots on the back of the computer. It goes inside, but sticks out the back so you can connect the cable from the monitor to it.

Wide screen monitor distortionDepending upon the screen resolution that has been set inDisplay, the image will be distorted on these large wide screen monitors.
Create a large circle image using a draw program such as Paint (hold down theShift key as you create the circle as it will draw a perfect circle).
Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab and adjust the Screen resolutionslider, increase or decrease the screen resolution then bring the circle imageto the front and check the image, if the circle is still distorted then changethe screen resolution and check the circle again until you are satisfied withthe image of the circle. When you are satisfied then click apply.

I have a 17" Gem

You shouldn't need to install software for a monitor to work. What you may have to do though, is configure your display settings to allow an external display. Your laptop might have a function key to do this. Try clicking the function key + the key that looks like a monitor display on your laptops keyboard. This should activate the external display port. You might also try going into the control panel, select display and enable the secondary display. Also a 17 inch display probably has a screen resolution of 1024x768 or 1280x1024 so make sure you don't set the resolution any higher then that or the display might not show anything.

Both the picture and sound work when the TV is turned on, yet the picture is distorted like a double picture and has a yellow hue to it.

Sounds like you have a convergence problem. If you go into the setup menu of your TV, there should be some settings to adjust the red, green and blue hues and re-position them so each color matches up. If this does not work or if you don't have a menu, your TV *might* have a circuit board with several plastic screws on it. These adjust the picture and it's a very tedious task to re-align each hue correctly.

My projection TV is an older model from 1995, which is probably why it has this circuit board in place of a convergence menu built into the TV.

If adjusting the convergence still doesn't work, you might need to purchase a new convergence chip.

I'm using this as an additional monitor for a HP 10" netbook and the picture is stretched & distorted & doesn't fill screen. The vertical adjustment just moves the whole thing up and remains...

Solution goes this way, to maintain the aspect ratio of the monitor, take note of this. Your HP 10inch notebook have different resolution compare to your additional monitor, But I'm sure you selected the dual view mode or the duplicate mode that is why you have distorted display on your additional monitor, to let the additional monitor decide and maximize its resolution, try using the extended view option, you can change the resolution of your additional monitor without affecting the resolution of your 10 inch laptop.

Distorted video display HP Pavilon a1257c

There may be a problem with settings using the external adjustments on the monitor. Some are very sensitive and you have to make small adjustments at a time using 2 or more adjustment choices. Hope this helps.

Adjust the pixels. Right click on desktop, properties, appearences, advanced and there should be a slide bar to adjust your pixels. Make them larger, ex. 1440X900 instead of 680X400
