It never rains but it pours :-( Having sorted my BB connection, I've now got a display problem:
My whole display is shifted about a quarter of the height of the screen upwards, which means that the bottom (start button etc.) is about quarter way up the screen, and the top of the display (the X and - buttons, etc.) has 'spilled over' and comes up at the bottom of the screen. While I'm booting up, the screen is normal -- it only shifts when the Windows XP welcome screen comes on. I can access everything on the screen, the mouse disappears off the top and reappears at the bottom, and vice-versa.
I've started my PC in safe mode, and the display is normal. Does this mean that it's a problem with the graphics card?
Video card is NVIDIA Vanta, and display is Sony SDM-M51 LCD.
Thanks wee eddie, vertical shift on the display settings has done the job. I had thought it was something more serious 'cause I couldn't figure out how to get operate the settings yesterday -- the settings screen looked like I should be able to click on it with the mouse, but in fact it's all driven by various combinations of the buttons on the monitor casing.
That happens to my display when I change from one user to another or when coming out of the odd game, annoying but always solved by using the auto set up for the monitor. I assume that it is a monitor issue rather than a card issue.
Just out of interest ... Since it was a setting on the monitor, not the PC, that was at fault, how come the display was OK during boot-up?
Modern monitors store different monitor settings for each display mode they're in. So the DOS screen, and the low resolution boot up graphics settings will be different to the normal desktop settings - some can be OK, the others not.
