After a move, when a computer was set up, there is still some black at the top of the screen. Can't get a full screen even after system restore. :whistling:

XP Profession, I believe. It is my brother's. Yes there is a control and he used that, but why should you have to? He's a cheap lawyer, so the computer was made for him by an individual. It's not too old. Thanks.

there should be some setting buttons or dials right in front or underneath the monitor...itsself

push on the one that says menu

then press the inside ones to move the different settings around

pick the one that has a little square inside a big square

push menu again and push the inside buttons around move it slowly....it should move up or down your screen

Just thought i would add this. I have a cheap AMW flat screen monitor that i have never been able to keep a full screen since i bought it. Every time i shut it off and start it up again the screen will vary slightlyand have a dark space along one or more of the edges. I also have a Envision 17" Monitor that is quite old now (over 5 years) that when i first start it up the windows display is larger than the screen size but after it warms up it closes down to the full screen size. I use these monitors on dozens of computers on occasion and there isn't one that will be the same screen size as the last one it was hooked to. I don't even adjust them anymore as i'm usually troubleshooting other problems.
