A magnetic source next to the monitor will mess with the signal but that usually will only affect the side closest to the magnet, not both sides of the image. If it worked fine the last time you turned it on and is messed up now then most likely a capacitor went bad inside and there is no easy fix. If you are not experienced in electronics then it would be dangerous to open it up. Monitors contain high voltage inside that can be stored in capacitors even when the monitor is unplugged.

How to change orientation of monitor


I'm a little unclear of what you are asking.

1) Screen has turned on monitor?

Press the CTRL key, and ALT key down at the same time.
Now tap on the Left Side Arrow key, until the screen is oriented correctly again.

2) Screen on monitor has shifted left, right, top, or bottom?
Use the controls on the monitor to set it correctly again.

3) Using dual monitors?
Right-click on an empty space on your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on Settings.

The monitor 1 icon is supposed to be your Primary monitor.
The monitor 2 icon is the Secondary monitor.

Ordinarily the Primary monitor is on the LEFT side, and the Secondary monitor is on the RIGHT side.
Just as shown in the Settings window.

If you wish to move a monitor to the other side, go to the monitor icon you wish to move.

Put your mouse cursor on the monitor icon you wish to move.
Left-click, and hold the left mouse button down.
Now drag the monitor icon you wish to move, to the other side.

Not doing it for you?
Then post in a Comment with more exacting information, as what it is that you wish to do.

Regards,

How do i turn my screen back the right way


How to Rotate a Computer Screen 90 Degrees

Perhaps you built your own monitor, and the screen is displaying at the wrong angle now that it's all set up. Maybe you installed a new graphics card or driver, and it appears something has gone horribly wrong. It's possible you're just being creative, and think it would be cool to lay your monitor on its side and still be able to use the computer. Or, most likely, your cat or kids pressed some mysterious key combination which rotated your screen for you, and you can't get it back. Don't worry; getting your screen to rotate 90 degrees is easier than you think.



1 Identify in which direction your screen needs to be rotated. There are four shortcut key combinations, and each will rotate your screen so that the top of the screen is at the top, bottom, left or right side of your monitor; you need to know which combination to choose. Say you are you trying to correct a mistake, and put the top of your screen back where it belongs--at the top of the monitor. Or you are trying to rotate your screen because you are using your monitor differently than most people do, and want the top of the screen to be at the left or right side of the monitor, or even upside-down.


2 Hold down "Ctrl + Alt" and the "up" arrow key if you want to return the top of your screen to the top of the monitor. "Ctrl + Alt + Left Arrow" will rotate your screen so that the top of the display is on the left side of your monitor, and using the Right Arrow will put it at the right side. The Down Arrow will turn your screen upside down if your monitor is right side up. Make sure you hold all three keys down long enough; the screen may go back for a moment as the screen is rotated.


3 Open your "Control Panel" if nothing is happening, and see if there is an option to "Enable Screen Rotation" under your Display options. If not, you may not be able to rotate your screen. This is especially common with older computers, as they have older graphics cards or integrated video If you have a newer computer, you may need to have the graphics drivers updated in order for the shortcut to work.


Tips & Warnings

If pets or children accidentally rotated your screen, consider finding a way to better protect your keyboard not just from accidental keystrokes, but from pet hair and kids' spills. A keyboard cover might be in order.

My dell b120 lcd screen has several vertical lines on the left side but whole screen rolls at its own will only stops when pressure is applied to varios places case


You may need a new screen. Take it apart first & check that the wiring is tightly connected. Attach an external monitor & see if the display is still messed up. If it is then the motherboard is bad.

Screen won't come on - the computer will turn on, and we can hear the sounds that its booting up, but the screen is completely dark. We've tried turning it off & then back on, to no avail.


Hi, make sure the cable is inserted properly into the monitor and graphics port at the back of the computer(try taking them out and inserting them back in making sure it is in the right orientation), if this does not help, try a differnt monitor and differnt cables. If none of this helps it is possible your graphics card has overheated n chips burnt, making the screen blank. Replacing the graphics card should help.

Split screen in two halves


wierd problem.

Smack the monitor around a little to see if there are any bad connections.

Tap it on the sides and the top. If the picture changes, you will have to either check and repair the board or take the unit in for service.

If it doesn't, then it sounds like there may be a problem in the horizontal sync circuit of the monitor. Since it is intermittent, it may be tough to solve.

Be sure to try it on another computer to make sure the fault is the monitor.

Dell E171FPb monitor turns on, but that's it


Hi Letneper,

Hope this will give you hints. Some monitors have standby mode or screen saver feature and or self test feature when not connected to video input of your PC or CPU. Except this problem did not occur at first use. You can turn this off like other monitors manually at OSD (on-screen display) settings if available. No more no less if it works fine with PC or CPU on then there's nothing to worry.

Best regards,
