Picture is too large for screen


Adjust the display settings on the computer by right clicking anywhere on the desk top except on any of the icons - a blank area. Select properties then select display settings - adjust to the desired or correct resolution.

Are Dell monitors not compatible with older HP Pavilion Computer? I tried to connect my HP CPU to a Dell monitor and it will not recognize it at all.


It shouldn't make any difference which monitor you are connecting to any computer. In fact, I am running a 19" HP Flat Panel on my Dell Dimension 2400 right now. It is NOT a wide screen monitor as the Dell built in graphics card will not support the RESOLUTION RATIO required for the wide screen. Check what setting is "native resolution" for your monitor and see if your graphics card will support it. If not, using your old monitor, try different resolution settings. Right click on your desk top, click on properties and that should bring up the display properties box. Try a lower setting as larger settings are the ones that will give you a black screen. It will probably give you a smaller picture on your old monitor, or perhaps smaller or larger icons on the desk top. Accept the new settings, turn off your computer and switch monitors, and turn your computer back on. If you get a picture, but it does not fill the whole screen or the icons seem too large or small, then go back into properties from the desktop and try a different resolution ratio until the picture seems correct.

Screen does not work on my latitude c840


If your LCD screen on the laptop does not display a picture and if you hook up an external monitor and it doesn't display anything either, then your video card is bad.
But--before you go trash the thing, when you hooked up the external monitor, did you push the Fn key and the corresponding special function key at the top of the keyboard that switches the output to the external screen? (It does not just display to the external screen without you telling it to.
What your uncle describes is a problem with the laptop LCD monitor, not the video card.

Screen shift


Try setting the refresh rate to 60 Hz. (Maybe 75).
Is it xp?
Right click an empty part of the screen, properties, under monitor (I think; I'm on Vista) you can choose the refresh rate.
Most LCD's should be at 60 Hz.
