Re: Desktop monitor screen shrinks to an hourglass shape
Hi, I am assuming
your monitor is a CRT, if that is the case then it is failing, and the cost to
repair it could be close to the price of a new one. You can check around, but my advice is
to get a new one. I hope this was helpful

you can solved your problem by your self but i am not sure it will work 100%.,1st UNPLUG power cable for safety! just open your monitor back cover via crew driver., now you should see some adjustable plastic scree on board plug your monitor with power and witch pc. now try to adjust plastic crew one by one. you will find the screen re-sizer crew. hope it will work. if this is now work then you should visit a good local engineer.
Right click the desktop, properties, change the resolution to the appropriate size. If this does not work try using the menu accessed by the buttons on the monitor to do a auto configure on the correct size of the screen.
Please let me know what make and model of computer and computer monitor you are dealing with.
In general, without having any additional information, I can say that on computer monitors there are settings to change the picture width and height controlled by buttons on either the front, side or top of the monitor. There is generally a menu button, buttons to move the selection and then the settings.
If you are dealing with a laptop, there are some with backlights, or small light bulbs in the LCD that light up the screen.
You can also go to your device manager and look to see if your video and display devices are shown to be working correctly. A faulty video card, display module, video driver or display driver could be to blame. These have to be ruled out to find the actual problem. Can you hook up to another monitor and get a full display?
Some of my answer depends if you are seeing the full image of the windows desktop on half of the display or only seeing half of the image windows desktop on half the screen.
Please give me more detail about the problem you are experiencing and I will be able to find a more specific answer for you,
The problem is due to under voltage.You may have an unstable power or your computer auto voltage regulator (AVR) is not doing its part..If not then you have a busted capacitor..resolder all capacitors and replace ruptured capacitors with same value and ratings..
This is a monitor setting. use the menu button on your monitor to shrink the screen size from side to side. The menu button usually toggles you through the settings and the + or - buttons adjust the settings.
This happens a lot if your on a small desk and bump your keyboard against a low sitting monitor.
