First try shutting system down, unplug tower for 1 minute and restart. Give it time to come up and if that doesn't work, shut it down again and try to start in "safe mode" do you get any screen at all? If you can start in safe mode try going to "control panel'", "device manager" then "personaliztion", and adjust your resolution. If you can't adjust your resolution in safe mode do a "system restore" back to when monitor worked.
Monitor is not recognizing the resolution settings that are currently set on the computer. It is probably sett too high. You will have to lower the computer resolution. If it is a laptop, you should be able to do this using the laptops screen. If it is a desktop computer, you either have to use a different screen to reset the resolution. or Sometimes restarting the computer while the screen is on will reset the video. If that doesn't work, try starting the computer in safe mode by tapping the F8 key while it is being started. This will keep the resolution low enough to see it on the monitor and you can adjust the resolution there in the display properties
The screen resoultion may be set too high.
Go to Control Panel - Display - click on the Settings tab, then adjust the screen resolution to 1024 x 768 to see if the proportion is OK, if not then adjust the next higher setting until the proportion is OK.
Are you sure that you are "setting" the resolution correctly? After you set a higher-resolution, there should be a "test" window ("if you can see this, click OK within 15 seconds"). Click 'OK' (or is it 'Apply' ???) within the 15 seconds.
Then, click 'OK' to close the 'Properties' window.
Your resolution may be set to high on the computer. Or you have a standard screen resolution set and since the monitor is a wide screen, it is cutting it off. Try a different resolution 1440x900 is what the va1930wm uses. If using a laptop with a standard type screen on it, you may have to set the laptop to just light the monitor to allow this setting to take. Since this monitor is a wide screen, it may have options in the menu to stretch or zoom on an image if the resolution is not set to a wide screen format.
You likely have your resolution too high. I prefer my resolution high but I can read small writing easily. To change this right-click your desktop and choose personalize then display settings adjust to a lower resolution but try to keep the aspect ratio similar to the ratio of the monitor you are using or the image will look squished. once you have finalized your decision you will have to tweak it using the controls on your monitor to stretch the picture out to the edge of your monitor. Also you can use the ease of access in the control panel for an on screen magnifier, or simply increase the font size in personalize (left column) adjust font size (DPI) (dots per inch)
I'm not sure what operating system you're using nor what you mean by your "home page". If you mean your browser window doesn't fill the whole Windows desktop, what happens when you maximize the window?
If your desktop looks huge with tiny icons (and tiny-looking windows, if you have any open and not maximized) all clustered in the middle of the screen, your display resolution may be set higher than you're accustomed to. In most versions of Windows you can go to Control Panel | Display, see what your current resolution is, and try adjusting it. The higher the numbers, the "bigger" the desktop area (and the smaller the icons and everything else). If you adjust the resolution higher than your monitor can handle, you may lose your display and have to restart the computer in something like Safe mode to get to Control Panel and readjust it. If you adjust the resolution lower (or run in Safe Mode) your icons may not fit on the smaller desktop and may get scrambled. In that case, first straighten out the display resolution, then move your icons back where you want them.
Adjusting the resolution is done in Windows. Right click on the desktop and click on properties. Once that opens click on the Settings tab. There you will have a slider bar that you can adjust your resolution with. As far as being able to see things clearly on the monitor, the best picture is usually obtained simply by pushing the AUTO button.
Since it's a widescreen monitor, the streching is likely from using a 4:3 ratio resolution on a 16:9 ratio monitor. Try setting the operating systems display resolution to 1440x900, since that's your monitor's native resolution (LCD monitors only really have one resolution).
In Windows, resolution settings are found by right-clicking on the desktop, click properties, and go to the Settings tab.
