This is a hard-to-describe monitor problem I have. I know the monitor is working fine (because it was until an hour ago!) but when I switch on the PC the picture is "squashed up" and sometimes several smaller over-lapping screens appear. I hope I've described this OK.
I'm sure there must be some way of resetting the monitor so the picture is perfect again. It might be something to do with the resolution or refresh rate or sometihng else, I'm only guessing. I can attach the monitor to a laptop, and the picture is fine on the laptop screen but not on the external monitor. I've tried going to the Control Panel/Display and trying various settings but nothing seems to work. I'm using XP Professional. Cheers.
are you sure they have no screen settings? even quite old monitors have settings to change the screen size , probably somewhere under the monitor they have these wheels. try increasing the horizontal and verticle screen size . if that doesn't work try increasing your screen resolution from display properties.
