After a relative (who had no idea what she was doing) connected and then disconnected a web cam to my daughter's computer the monitor display became offset. The top of the display was at the bottom right of the screen and the bottom of the display was at the top left of the screen. The mouse worked, but it was nearly impossible to see anything. After attempting to fix it by changing the resolution to the lowest setting, the screen now shows only black and white horizontal lines on the bottom half and is blank above. It seems to me that the video settings were changed in connecting the web cam, but I can't see enough to change them back. Any ideas?

Re: Monitor Display Offset
Sounds like the web cam software may have changed a .dll or some other system file that the video chip is using. I would try uninstalling any software from the cam and removing and reinstalling the video drivers.
Have your windows CD or the CD that came with the PC handy we might need it.
Open Device Manager
Control Panel > System > (or hit Windows key + Break key) and if you're using XP switch to the Hardware tab and click Device Manager.
Double click Display Adapters. Right click the video adapter listed
and click Uninstall.
Click yes you're sure to whatever warning message comes up.
Now reboot your PC. Windows should auto-detect the video and re-install the correct drivers.
There IS a possibility that the first re-install could use the same bad files...so if while re-installing you DON'T get asked for the windows CD and you still have the problem after rebooting, go to the manufacturers web site and download the drivers for your system and force windows to install those files.
If you don't know how and it comes down to needing to try that let me know I'll walk you through.

cek our USB (maybe not connect to our usb)
cek our control panel (is there any web cam there?)
basicaly the WEB CAM -if detetcted- will display at my computer as web cam (theres an icon webcam there, while u can klik it and displaying a tv monitor)
if everything like that, try to uninstall YM, restart our PC and then installing YM again
Try to locate the camera driver and do a update also might be a fix download for the Crystal Eye Cam through Acer Or another download site. Another idea would be to get a driver Program which checks all your drivers on the main items like keyboard, web cam , mouse, monitor, graphics the one i use is DriverDetective works great!
Disconnect the cable from the computer and see if you have the same problem. If you don't and you get a no signal present message the problem is related to your cable's connection to the display adapter connector or your display adapter itself.
I can assist you further if you get the expected message above after disconnecting the cable.
If it does the same thing after disconnecting the cable the monitor is no longer any good and has failed. There is nothing you can do to fix this problem other than to take it to a qualified repair shop that will work on monitors or you could have it replaced under warranty if one exists.
I just had the same problem as well - mine happened during a windows update, related? Also, for me the monitor doesn't come one even after disconnecting from computer, nothing, just blinking green light.
