I have a mesh computer with a nvidia 8600gt graphics controller andan Edge 10 w223 the screen maximum resolution is 1680 x 1050. When i first purchase the machine a few months ago the screen settings were 800 x 600 i adjusted this to 1680 x 1050 i then had an error come up stating screen out of range i set the frequency to 60 and all was fine, i switch my computer on today and the screen is as follows the now has a line which is running top to bottom and about 4 inches wide about two inches offset from centre to the right The left hand side of the screen which shows start menue is now displayed on the right hand side of this black area and the left hand side of the screen is now on the left of this bar. Its as if the screen has been cut in half and wapped round with this black area in between. T he system will work ok on 1400 x 900 resolution at 60 HTZ ANY HELP SUGGESTION WOULD BE MOST GRATEFUL BEFORE I SPEAK TO MESH AS THEY ARE NOT VERY FORTHCOMMING WHEN APPROACHED.

Hello,

Have you updated your GFX Drivers? Have you checked the temps on your GFX card?

Cheers,
Mak
