The horizontal deflection coil is shorted. There is no way to fix that, the entire tube would have to be replaced and that would cost as much as a new monitor.
Just buy a second-hand LCD monitor from here http://www.diabloscomputer.ro/monitoare-second-hand-fujitsu-siemens-p19-2 Asta l-am luat eu si are o imagine excelenta.
if your lucky it's just your H-center is off tilt. to check this Press the menu button on your monitor. scroll through the options till you see Horizontal-center option. select this setting and move the screen to the left. The entire screen should start shifting to the left and fill in the screen. now if you do this and you get a black bar on the right. Center the screen where you have the same amount of black on both sides of the screen. scroll through your menu till you see the H-size. increasing this will fill in the black area. Hope this helps.
Since this is a CRT monitor, it doesn't have a native resolution like LCD monitors. You need to adjust the veritcal and horizontal sizes to fit the monitor. On the front of the monitor there are some menu buttons. You need to open the on-screen menu, then navigate to the Horizontal Size and Position menu, use the plus and minus buttons to grow and shrink the image. If it's not centered, use the Horizontal Position menu to move it around. Use this same system for the Vertical menu and you can get your image to fit your screen. By the way, you should have your operating system running with a white (or light colored screen) up when you do this so you can see all the edges of your desktop. The buttons are tricky, but they kinda make sense. Good Luck!
To my knowledge, it is not the zoom that has to be adjusted but rather the horizontal width, zoom would expand all (to, bottom & both sides) whereas your only concern are the two sides.
Should the horizontal width not fully expand, then there is an internal problem with the horizontal deflection circuitry which could either be the yoke, a capacitor or shunt diodes. In certain instances, a below normal voltage at the mains or the internal power supply could also cause this.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Hi Bj, Is it an aftermarket video-card? If it is, like ATI or Nvidia, Download the recent drivers for your particular card, Uninstall your Videocard from device manager, then install the software. CoDoc
