My son was playing various pc games today and now the pc screen has stretched out in such a way that the icons on the edge of the screen can't be seen. I've tried changing the resolution but this doesn't fix the problem. I've also tried restarting the pc and using the buttons on the monitor to adjust the screen size but nothing seems to work.I've even tried the restore function on xp but this doesn't fix the problem. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. ziggy
Its a 19" CRT but altering the resolution from the control panel (back to 1024x768 doesn't seem to work. Don't know why the machine is doing this. Even shutting down and restarting doesn't seem to fix the problem. Sometimes it goes back to normal and then for no reason it happens again!
if you are unable to cure this go to click here and install the latest Geforce driver, follow the instructions on website, you don't have to remove your old driver, just save to PC and then install................
Right click free area of desktop , click properties , click settings tab , adjust slider if necessary to the previously working reolution , click apply , click OK. Also click 'Advanced'button and on the 'General' tab at the bottom there is a link 'running programs in 256-color mode' , could this be of use to you ? Also I would check the settings on the other tabs that you see after 'Advanced' button is clicked.
