If you can, swap out your graphics card with another one and see if the problem still exists. If it does then your know that the monitor is bad.

If the problem goes away after swapping out the graphics card then you know its your graphics card that is bad.

These are the two best ways to be sure whether its one or the other.

First remove the graphics card and use the integrated AGP to check if the monitor is OK. Repairing graphic cards are dicy unless the damage is clearly identified, but no assurance since it must have damaged some other component too. So get a new graphic card if the monitor is OK.....................sodeep

Wide screen monitor distortion
Depending upon the screen resolution that has been set in Display, the image will be distorted on these large wide screen monitors.
To correct this distortion.
1. Create a large circle image using a draw program such as Paint (hold down the Shift key as you create the circle as it will draw a perfect circle).
2. Open Control Panel - Display - Settings tab and adjust the Screen resolution slider, increase or decrease the screen resolution then bring the circle image to the front and check the image, if the circle is still distorted then change the screen resolution and check the circle again until you are satisfied with the image of the circle.
3. When you are satisfied then click apply.

How do I adjust the image width on this wide screen? Everything appears distorted and wider than it is. I would like a narrower image.


This is one of the problems with the wide aspect screen. Most images seem to fit best on the older monitors.
You can go into the video properties and choose one the the display types that best display your image. Unfortunately, by taking a normal (to us) image that looked just fine on an older monitor and displaying it on a newer, wide-aspect monitor, you're gonna distort the image or crop it in a way you didn't expect.
My advice is to experiment with the display until you find something you can live with.

Screen stretched out horizontally and distorting picture. None of the settings buttons appear to solve this. I can shift the image vertically or horizontally; but not squeeze it horizontally.


There are adjustments in the size of the items on a screen under the screen properties, settings. If you right click on the desktop screen and then properties you can get there. There is at least one size which causes a distortion of images being displayed. This may be your problem.

Sony DSC-t33 lcd monitor is distorted.Pictures


Hi!
It's a faulty CCD imager - a very common problem with the T33 - the imager has to be replaced. You can buy it from http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/toms.rammsteins and replace the CCD yourself (ask seller the instructions).

Screen image display distortion


Hello.
What you are reporting is a problem in the pincushion circuit in the horizontal section of your CRT monitor. Usually this is from an electrolytic capacitor that is no longer willing to play nice with all the other components.
It is repairable, but get an estimate first. If the repair bill appears to be around $100, you would be better off to put a few more dollars with that and buy an LCD TFT monitor.
If you are quoted $25 or $30, it is probably worth having repaired. Just keep in mind that these older CRT monitors have age on their components, and once repaired, it will still be an old monitor.
Only you can decide which choice is right for you. At least now you have a few facts to help make the decision.
I hope this helps.
