If the whole image is too long you can adjust it from tthe image driver ..it will be in the right side on the task bar near the programs that are opened all the time ..and named like the video card you are using and usually will display when hoovering the resolution in use..open the resolutions and choose one that fits best...and confirm ..
To adjust just the the picture from the desktop ..right click on the desktop..properties..and desktop...in there choose the desktop image ..or change image ..and you will have 3 possibilities for adjusting the picture to fit..center ...stretch..and tile.. see them one by one ...if non of the stile will make it visible in a normal way ..then you should change the picture,,and choose a wallpaper that it is in the same form and big enough to fit....
T change a picture on the wallpaper it is enough to right click on it when its opened ..and choose it to be set as wallpaper from the list of tasks...

The screen resolution needs to be adjusted to give the correct image proportion.
Go to control Panel - Display - Settings tab and adjust the screen resolution. Start with 1024X768 and adjust it higher until the image is correct.
If you display a circle on the screen first, it makes it easier to see when the image is correct when you change the screen resolution.

Will a hp vp17 monitor work on a compaq presario?


All monitors will work on any pc/mac computer.
The only concern might be how old is the monitor (low resolution) connected to a brand new computer (high resolution). But it usually auto adjust at windows boot up.
Check the VGA connector (blue) or DVI connector (white) for the monitor matching the pc tower

My s1922a has lines running through it


No surge protector? May be the monitor, try another. Bad Graphics , replace graphics card. You may want to invest in a Battery bachup/surge protector, it's no guarantee, but it may help.

Hi
Is your monitor on?
Then check the VGA [cable from the CPU to the Monitor] connections.
Try replacing the cable and see what happens.

I have a Compaq Q2009 (new). The picture is too wide on the right side, cutting off the image about 1/4".


There are a series of buttons on the monitor. There's probably a Menu button that allows you to change the dimensions and sizes of your picture on the screen. You'll need to open the picture menu, and find the Horizontal picture options. There are normally two options - one changes the horizontal placement, and the other changes the horizontal size. You can play with these two options until you can see your whole screen.

Everything on the screen appears stretched


If you can, set the Screen resolution to the maximum native resolution your monitor supports by adjusting the slider. to 1680x1050, if you can set it to that, then Windows will automatically display at the proper aspect ratio, and the monitor will not have to stretch anything. Setting your screen resolution to match your monitor's native resolution is, by far, the preferred solution to get you the best looking display.
If that specific resolution is not available, then you'll need to try resolutions that are smaller than that, but ideally with the same aspect ratio. 1512x945, for example, would maintain the same aspect ratio. Not all monitors handle running at less than their optimal resolution well, and it may result in a slightly fuzzy display, but it won't be horizontally stretched. If this fails to fix the problem it could be a problem with your video card

Acer AL2216WBD LCD Monitor Problem


If your computer does not have a video card that supports the correct resolutions for the widescreen monitors, then your picture may get stretched. Much like watching normal tv programs on a an hd set. It will eitther strech or cut off the picture.
Try different settings in you computer display settings.

Unable to have 1280x768 full screen with DVI cable


Use the menu button on the monitor itself to adjust for the screen size in DVI mode.

 

On your SVGA adapter, go to your display properties (right click on desktop) click ADVANCED and change the refresh rate to fix the first problem mentioned.
