Hi all .
when windows starts up , the logo now goes off the edge of the screen on the right hand side and it is like im looking at it in reverse in the background . there is also a big black bar down the middle of the screen . my pc also keeps crashing .
Can anyone help with this or at least tell me if it can be fixed somehow ?

Check that the cable to the monitor has not come loose then.

The screen adjustment settings is likely a driver problem.

First download the newest driver for the monitor. On the desktop.. right click,properties,settings, advanced,monitor,properties,driver, update driver(select the location you downloaded it to)

To deselect interlaced. On the desktop.. right click,properties,settings, advanced, apply.....restart the computer.

It sounds like you've got a CRT monitor with the width setting maladjusted. If you have, using the monitor controls to correct the width setting should fix it.

Please confirm whether you've got a CRT or LCD monitor.

"...with the width setting maladjusted"

or with the picture adjusted much too far to one side.

or the monitor is faulty.

It only happens when it starts up , everything is fine once windows is running . Its almost like it is on a loop .

Have you got a CRT or an LCD please - it matters to help answer you.

the line sync is off on your monitor and will require the services of a techniciaan,

fair test and the cheapest at the moment would be to plug it into another computer, if it does the same time to buy skinny screen, if not it could be a corrupt VGA driver issue...
