A Chimei 19" CMV 938D monitor was purchased with a view to using it vertically for desktop publishing.
The stand and mount were removed, rotated 90 degrees and reistalled so that the rather "lengthy" monitor stood upright to provide a "portrait" view of the screen. The desktop and all programs were then of course displayed "sideways" on the screen. Was unable to find any graphic card adjustments (for my existing card) or Chimei software or firmware that would allow the screen image to be rotated 90 degrees so it could be displayed in the vertical mode. The objective was to display the screen vertically so that when running Pagemaker, an A4 page being created could be viewed in full in "portrait" mode. Otherwise, on standard screens, it is never possible to see a "readable" version of a page - it is necessary to scroll to see the various sections of the page.
Then a trial version of "Pivot" software was found that allowed the screen image to be rotated 90 degrees and this worked well with Pagemaker.
BUT, the page proportions were incorrect. The A4 page was "tall and thin" instead of having the correct A4 dimensions. Clearly, this Chimei model is designed to deliver "digital TV" format and seemingly, nothing else.
Does anyone have knowledge of any method of altering the relative proportions of the visible screen display? That is, make the horizontal (normally the "vertical" but now rotated 90 degrees) wider, without simultaneously making the vertical wider as well.
The Chimei monitor controls allow shifting the image in the X and Y directions, but do not allow widening or narrowing. I'm stuck at this point. Another graphic card maybe? Ditch the "digital TV format" screen and try a conventionally shaped monitor? Or is there a hidden secret in Windows or another piece of software that allows the screen image size and shape to be controlled?

Many graphic cards enable you to rotate the screen up to 360 degrees. You could try to post this question again under you graphic card model instead of computer screen model as it is your graphic card that is certainly the problem.

Sound like your display is having issues with the inverter board. When the power supply detects a short circuit, it turn off by itself. When you try several times, you may be able to "bypass" the circuit protection but the damaged parts still having problems. This issue may be related with the DELL display issues.
The display needs to be fixed by someone with experience in electronics repair.
Hi, sandjkroll, this kind of problem could be because of ur monitor or even because of the on board display card on ur motherboard. To check ur monitor, u unplg display cable which goes to ur cpu and the power cable which goes to ur cpu. Them connect the power plug to mains, so no cable from the monitor should go to the CPU. Then u swithch on the the poower suply, and on the monitor. I If ur monitor displays elongated screen still, and shows signal not found,and no display comes that means ur monitor needs to be send for service. and if there are no elongated screen and says no signal found, ur monitors fine, ur motherboad has a problem
I know this sounds obvious but- I had the same problem, and turns out the cord want plugged in quite properly at the back of the monitor. This may not fix every problem, but, I suggest you check the cord pligged in at the back of the monitor is firmly in there and restart, then if you still get the problem, contact the company.
I have the exact same monitor and it is 220v. But seeing as i bought it in Australia that makes sense. If yours was purchased in North America then it is almost definitively 110v. It is likely that it is written on the actual monitor. If in doubt you could always try it with 110v. If that works then theres your answer. If it doesn't then its probably 220v.
