I have a 23 inch AOC Monitor that was on widescreen and suddenly switched to a smaller screen.

I cannot figure out how to get it back to the widescreen.

Lost the manual and have tried everything I can think of to switch it back.

Can you help?

Thank you

what do you mean by this? Is there a black border around the screen? Is it possible to get a screenshot? This information will make it easier for me to help you :)

Apart from any buttons that you may have on your monitor for adjusting screen size, here is the method for windows xp;

To change screen resolution on a Window's-based PC, right click on any area on the desktop screen where there are no icons.
A menu will pop up. If you are using Windows XP, click on "Properties," followed by the "Settings" tab.
A horizontal bar will be shown, which you can scroll right or left to increase or decrease resolution.
This could also be a gfx card issue, if resizing the screen doesn`t work check your gfx card properties & drivers.
