Monitor

Hello, I was surfing and installing a few tweaks on my xp home edition, and i happened to notice that by Brand New Monitor (well, 2months old) is evenly shrunk on the right side about a quarter of an inch and i did not notice this before today! Now i had this happen on my old 98SE pc and if i remember I was able to adjust the size of the monitor screen in the Display section, but i forget how to do it! I am using xp home edition now! Can anyone tell me how to adjust screen size of the monitor? Thank you Tom

This should be an adjustment on the monitor itself. You can adjust almost anything from contrast to pincushion. As for adjusting the video card that can only be done if the manufacturer wrote that into the XP driver, which is just as likely they didn't as they did.

Your best bet is the manual for the monitor.

Some high end video cards offer adjustments that can be made from the desktop concerning size, location, rotation etc.
