Question about Dell UltraSharp 2408WFP 24" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

When I maximize my document, it is bigger than the screen

I just got a refurbished monitor yesterday to replace my broken one. I had no problems with the display of my previous monitor, but this one looks like it is zoomed in. My picture is bigger than the flat screen and I can't see the corners of my documents. I have reset all of the settings back to factory settings and I checked zoom on the monitor and it is set to zero. Not sure what to do next!

Have you tried adjusting the screen properties via Windows? maybe changing the resolution will fix it, and you can adjust the physical screen size too.

That's not what maximize does. It merely enlarges the current window to full screen size.

Hello my computer will not connect to my screen anymore. I have a LG lcd monitor and tv it was working yesterday wen i turned it off and 2day wen i turned computer on my screen won't get the signal....


Check the cables and if this doesn't work try a different screen. In the event that a different screen does not cure the problem you may have bigger problems. It could be Ram failure it could be Graphics card failure or it could even be HDD failure. Always try the easiest and cheapest bits first.

The power button is broken


We used this monitor for two years with no problems then we also experienced the same power problem. Using my electronics background I was able the verify that the problem was with the actual power switch. I ordered a replacement switch and installed it. The monitor now works like new again. The switch is available via online electronic suppliers. The part number I used was a TL2285EE made by E-SWITCH. I found that it is actually a little bigger then the original and believe that the original switch is actually a TL2230EE. The bigger switch fit with a little persuading and should last a little longer but the 2230 would fit much better. This job is not to hard for someone with some soldering experience.

Good Luck...We love our monitor again (we own two)

How do I adjust my monitor? My home page does not


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.

Laptop screen damaged?


Nothing is ever broken beyond repair, but most of the time the cost of repair actually exceeds what you can purchase a new one for. And with 19" LCDs selling for around $139, you get a bigger screen and less money than it would cost to actually replace the screen on that monitor.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

when you tried it in your laptop.. did you use the function keys to try to get image on your monitor?
check your laptop documentation it shoud tell you how you can get the image in another monitor or get to show on both, your laptop lcd screen and your monitor or on only on your monitor. if you did try that as per your laptop documentation... you may want to read up on your monitors warranty.. you're within the year so should be ok.. get the receipts of your purchase ready.

Lcd screen is broken


What kind of screen? And how is it broken?
If it's for a desktop, you should just buy a new monitor.
If it's on a laptop, you have a bigger problem.
