I have tried playing with my graphic card settings, Nvidia something, I'm currently unsure where to check for the precise name/make of it. I haven't seen in it displayed in any place I would expect. I've tried using the optimization button on the monitor itself, along with changing individual settings and gett only a worse display.
The monitor is connected to my computer via a adapter since the cable from the monitor is, I think, VGA, while the monitor ports on my computer are for HD. I don't know if it matters, but I'm running xp sp2 with the latest updates, and the video players used are winamp, VCL, and wmp.
Also, is there a program I can run to get the most out of my desktop display? No matter how I adjust it, it seems like the side are bent or curved, and the left part of the screen seems to cut off a centimeter or two.
