My LCD monitor died yesterday. I have replaced it with a new one which works perfectly well except that the desk top is now split (30% as normal and 60% totally white). Icons appear as normal against both parts of the desk top. When I open a web page, it covers the total screen and looks perfect (so its not the resolution settings etc). Any ideas?
No, I said that when I opened a web page to view it (or a Word document etc), it fills the whole screen as it should do. In other words, the screen is working OK except when I return to the desk top...where two thirds of it is white (and one third is my normal desk top setting). However, desk top icons appear as normal on both sides of the split screen
Thanks for the suggestion, but this is not s 'stretch' to fit problem. I've tried all of the obvious resolution stuff. In any case, when I open a full page (eg a web page) it fills the screen totally (ie no need for stretching. The split only occurs when the desktop is on screen
DieSse, yes, it remains the same. Another observation - if I right click on the coloured part, I get a conventional desktop menu (new folder, shortcuts, properties etc) but if I right click on the white part, I get a totally different menu, none of which is familiar at all
