Hey Guys! Since I bought my computer(about 6 months ago) I have been having issues with the screen resolution. Sometimes when i bring my monitor out of sleep mode, the display seems to be elongated from side to side. I try changing the resolution, but no matter which setting I put it on the screen is still messed up. The only way that I have found to get it back to normal is restarting the computer, which becomes a bit of an annoyance when I have to restart it 2-3 times a day. Any suggestions? I don't know much about computers.

I have a Gateway DX4822, if that helps any.

Since it's desktop, I suggest, you disable all power saving features, because there is no advantage from using them and they often cause problems.

There can be many causes that can result in different issues affecting the display. Common causes include damage or loose parts. Damage can result when the laptop is dropped or has something fall on top if it. Hinges that are loose are going to cause a problem because the display will not stay in an upright position. Other causes include a bad video driver or an improperly set resolution.
