Question about Acer AL1714 17" LCD Monitor
No clue as to why this is happening but for some reason when starting up my PC into Windows (which displays fine) or booting up into DOS, the screen would is off centre (can't see anything on either the left side of the screen or the top of the screen. So I'm wondering if any of you experts have any idea as to what may be the problem.
The monitor likely auto-synced off centered on that resolution because it couldn't find the edges of the black screen.
Try to figure out what resolution the DOS screen is using and then set windows to that resolution and then proceed to center the screen using the monitor's menu.
You can now switch back to the resolution of your liking.
On next reboot, the monitor should keep the settings for that resolution.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or
a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from
it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white
letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
