It sounds more like a graphics driver issue than an issue with your monitor.
If you have onboard video then you need to know the make and model of your computer/mobo and get the drivers from the vendors website.
If you have a stand alone graphics card you will need to know the make and model# of the card and get the drivers for it.
You don't have internet at home so you should write down the info you need and bring it somewhere you can get on the net and burn a cd. go to the vendors website to dload the appropriate drivers copy them over to the cd and then bring them home on the disk and install them.
Hope this was clear

Everything is distorted and elongated


You need to set the PC video resolution to the native resolution of this monitor, 1920 x 1080 @ 60Hz for best picture and correct aspect ratio.

You may have to load the driver if you cannot get the PC the let you select this resolution.

Monitor off centre when booting up into dos


Hello,

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.

Screen goes blank when I move the mouse


Did it work properly using a VGA (analog) cable? If so, check your DVI (digital) cable against the pictures at the bottom of http://www.datapro.net/techinfo/dvi_info.html.
You probably have one of the two at the left. Each has a different bandwidth, translating to a maximum resolution. The native resolution for your monitor might be marginal if you have a single-link DVI-D cable.
My 204B seems very picky about signal-level. It blinks when connected by DVI, even though it should be fine with a single-link cable, and complains about the settings even though the settings are optimal. Maybe yours is similar. I have ordered a dual-link cable and will try that myself.

To change the resolution back to something more reasonable go to the control panel (start, settings, control panel) and double left click on the Display icon. Click on the settings tab. The color quality should be set a high as possible, usually 32 bit or true color. Then click on the Advanced button in the lower right corner and on the next screen click on the Monitor tab. In the Monitor settings make sure the Screen refresh rate is set between 70 and 75 Hertz (the higher the number the less obvious the screen flicker will be but don?t set any higher). Click on the OK button to go back to the previous screen. Once that is set you want to increase the Screen Resolution using the slider bar to the left. For a 19? screen you would want to set it to a minimum of at least 1024 x 768. The typical setting is 1280 x 1024 depending on monitor / video card capabilities and personal tastes. Once you get the resolution back to the original settings your screen will display as it did before the ?change?. If you find another resolution setting you like better we?ll need to make some adjustments to the monitor itself. Just let us know. Ordinarily screen resolution changes doesn?t just happen, it?s usually the result of a program, user or problem. If that is the case you?ll need to post anther question along with details about what is happening just before the change occurs along with your operating system and any other pertinent information.
