Re: Problem with my Dell E771mm 17 in.CRT monitor
How far from the sides is the image? If it?s just an inch or two you can use the monitor adjustments to expand the image to the edge of the screen where it was previously.
If its too far in then the only option is to have it repaired. You didn't mention where you are but in the US even a minor monitor repair that involves at tech opening the monitor is going to cost at least $45, perhaps more. That?s a lot of money for a monitor worth about $100 new so a new or used monitor may be a more cost effective option for you.

For the E771MM, press and hold the OK button on the monitor for 15+ to toggle off the OSD lock. Holding the button turns on the OSD lock as well. The OK button is the rightmost of the control buttons (excluding the power button). This is a useful feature if a small child will be near the monitor or if the monitor is being used for demonstrations.
Below the monitor, on the center are option button, you can explore that in adjusting your screen display. You can widen the display, or tweak it depending on the angle that you need to. Just press the center button and choose from the menu.
