Hello:

I need help.

I noticed that while booting up my system that the DELL and Microsoft Logos are off centered on the screen. Everything is moved to the left of the screen.

I looked at the Resolutions after everything on the PC had finished loading and they are 1024 by 768 pixels and the Scale Bar is move all the way over to the Right, so I can't move that any farther, but other than that, everything else on my PC is working properly, but the two Logos.

Can someone tell me how to fix this ??

Thanks

Sounds like your actual screen setting is off to the left. You should have buttons on the monitor to reposition your screen itself. Find the left to right setting and move the screen to the right till it is centered.
One question though...is this just on bootup or is it also while in windows?

One question though...is this just on bootup or is it also while in windows? Well, I had to do a Boot-Time Scan with AVAST and all the text was pushed to the left of the monitor. The only thing I could see was the end of each line.

Thanks again !!!

It was there when I first booted up my system in the morning. This is an old SNAPSHOT, I kept it because it's happened more than once. I think this was the 5th time that this box has appeared within the last several months.

Go to

Start and then to Run
Type in Chkdsk /r Note the space between k and /
Click Enter ...It will probably ask if you want to do this on the next reboot...click Y
If the window doesn't shutdown on its own then reboot the system manually. On reboot the system will start the chkdsk operation
This one will take longer then chkdsk /f

Note... there are 5 stages...
It may appear to hang at a certain percent for a hour or more or even back up and go over the same area...this is normal...
DO NOT SHUT YOUR COMPUTER DOWN WHILE CHKDSK IS RUNNING OR YOU CAN HAVE SEVERE PROBLEMS
This can take several hours to complete.
When completed it will boot the system back into windows.

Reboot after your done running chkdsk /r...
then Go to Start...Run and type: eventvwr.msc press Enter
When Event Viewer opens, click on Applications... then scroll down to [b]Winlogon]/b] and double-click on it. This is the log created after running Checkdisk...copy and paste the log back here


We will advise after studying the log.

Reboot after your done running chkdsk /r... rshaffer61, are you saying/telling me to reboot the system even after I've come back up on my Desktop ???

You know I have another problem, not with this topic, but I'm not getting any of my Notifications. I have to come back to check to see if you've answered my last Reply.

I don't know if you remember helping with this same issue last year after the Website was going thru the remake process, you told me to check certain boxes, which I did, and uncheck certain boxes and I did, and I still am not receiving any Notifications. Very frustrating to say the least.

If there's nothing that can be done, not a problem, I'll just have to keep checking back.

Thank U !!!

If the system does not reboot after finishing the chkdsk then you have to manually reboot it.
For notifications go to the top of the forum page and click on My Settings then on left side click on Notifications Options
On Right side in Notification Preferences make sure the drop down menu is set for Immediate Notification
You will have to make sure the box is checked to the left of that.
Scroll to the bottom of the page and make sure to click Save Changes
Before leaving that are on the left side click on Change email address
On the line that says Your current email address: make sure your email address is correct.
Again make sure to click Save Changes and then exit settings completely. If everything is right then you should now get notifications in your email box.

Check out what this box is saying:

I did not want to manually restart the system until I know that it says what it should say.

Waiting for your reply !!!

Click Y
All it means is that chkdsk cannot run within windows and the system will need to be rebooted so it runs outside windows in a dos environment. This is normal for the command as per the instructions I posted and have copied the relevant info below.

Go to

Start and then to Run
Type in Chkdsk /r Note the space between k and /
Click Enter ...It will probably ask if you want to do this on the next reboot...click Y


If the window doesn't shutdown on its own then reboot the system manually. On reboot the system will start the chkdsk operation.
