Screen image is curved inwards

Hi,

Recently, I had my CD-ROM drive replaced by a technician. When I got back my computer, I noticed that the screen extended out of the monitor, up and left. I already had a similar problem when I installed MS DirectX 5.0. To correct it, I just had to re-install my graphic card driver. I tried this time, but it changed nothing, so I just reajusted the monitor settings. Now I have this strange thing: the image is slightly curved inwards. It does not happen in DOS mode, nor when the windows95 logo shows on startup. I have an ATI Graphics Expression.

What's going on?

2 things to look at, first, you can adjust this by changing the refresh rate of your monitor.  Open up Display Properties, you should see a Panning? tab (as I recall, that's how ATI put it), you can play around with the refresh rate to see which one work best.  2nd, if you have a newer, more well featured monitor, you can correct the curved inward thing by adjusting Side-Bow or depends on how your monitor manufacturer put it.
