Hi
i am using windows 98 os. my desktop is displaying
with a small shift of 5 cm from the right side of screen all windows also display like that only.it looks like the screen size is reduced at the right side by 5cm.
i am unable to correct it please help me in this regard.
the left side has no problem
start menu comes correctly.
is it monitor settings?
i hope not be'coz monitor alows to resize in both
left and right direction.
if i want to increase the screen size both left and right increase so my start menu will go inside
thanks

What you could try is finding out the manufactuer of you video card (check in Control Panel -> Settings -> System-> Devices)  and download the latest driver form the companies sight.  Also, you can try to download a driver for your monitor as well.

Hope this helps...

The monitor doesn't work well with the resolution or refresh rate you have set. Splash screen is displayed in VGA (640X480), so it is another case. Try adjusting refresh rate and/or resolution. If this problem has occured suddenly, without anything being changed, you probably have a monitor going bad.

I'd try what RID suggests.  If that doesn't work then it might be worthwhile to see if there are updated video drivers as suggested by PastorDwayne.  

You might also check to see if there is a 'degauss' switch/setting for your monitor.
