Question about Dell M992 19" CRT Monitor

Dell m992 monitor screen width

I cannot increase my screen width to the edges on the screen.My display is at least two inches from the edge on both sides and the adjustment are already at 100%. I'm using Windows XP home with a ATI radeon graphics card. Changing resolutions seem to make the display even narrower. Don't know what else to try.

The link below is a Digitally signed M992 monitor driver. Also try upgrading to the latest ATI software and drivers. You can also try and change the frequency refresh rate to 75mhz. It in the Control Panel under 'Display' and tab 'Monitor'. It shows a list for frequencies you can try.

Brightness - Using this button or wheel the user can increase and decrease the brightness on the screen.
Contrast - Using this button or wheel can increase and decrease the amount of contrast on the screen.
Horizontal Size - Allows for the picture on the screen to be stretched to the horizontal edge of the monitor.
Vertical Size - Allows the picture on the screen to be stretched to the vertical edges of the monitor.
Horizontal Position - Allows the picture to move moved horizontally, once in the center the user can then use the Horizontal size to stretch it to have an equal amount of black border on each side.
Vertical Position - Like the Horizontal Position, using this button or wheel the user can move the picture up or down to center the picture more appropriately.

Pressing and holding this button for a few seconds may cause your computer monitor to reset all data.
Corner and Trapezoid Correction - Using this button or wheel the user can either round the edges of the picture or move the picture inward like an hour glass or outwards.
Vertical Linearity - Sets the width of the vertical lines.
Moire - Removes or reduces the Moire effect, if any.
OSD Controls - If the monitor contains OSD controls, allows for the OSD menus to be adjusted.
Power Management - Allows the user to define the power management settings through the monitor itself and not the software.

I accidently hit recall on my monitor settings. I now have a smaller veiwing screen with black edges

You didn't say which OS you're using but it sounds like you've changed the aspect ratio of your video signal. Different screen resolutions have somewhat different aspect ratios. The aspect ratio indicates the ratio of the number of pixels of width to those of height. For example: my video driver offers a resolution of 1280 x 960 or 1280 x 720 which would give screen aspect ratios of 1280/960 = 1.33 :1 and 1280/720 = 1.77 : 1. The latter would produce a narrower image. You can compensate somewhat by increasing your horizontal sweep voltage with your monitor menu. A better solution would be to select a resolution that more closely matches your monitor's screen size.

When I set the resolution to 1280x1024, the display is wider than the screen and I have to scroll to see the edges. At 1024x768, everything is fine. (Monitor is a Dell 1908FR-BK.)

IF the screen is wider then try to change the settings from the monitor buttons. We change change the screen size , move it , change brightness,etc.

Width increases a bit on lowering and incresing resolution

Hence my earlier suggestion of lowering the resolution, it was actually a test.

Now we are getting somewhere. Yoke is definitely out, opposing diode pair is also out. The remote chance of the horizontal sync/oscillator is also out. That leaves us only with a possible resistor that has gone up in value (or is open) (least likely) and/or a capacitor (most likely) that has leaked, bulged or whose capacitance has gone down.

Perhaps a service manual would be of more help.

Good luck.

Screen width unadjustable

Most likely width control circuit has developed a problem. Most common causes are a failed diode in the yoke return circuit or open capacitor near the flyback.
