IBM Thinkpad A31 display is off center. Is there a way I can center the display again?

I have a IBM thinkpad A31 laptop.  Display was fine until a week ago.  Now the display is off Center.  My start button, task bar, my clock, quick launch and startup icons are way on the bottom.  If I have kind of blindly imagine the location and click right click or left click to get the program.  I was successful in moving the task bar to top and left.  But can't move it to right, because display is off centered.  Even though I moved the task bar to top, still I can't access couple of icons which is right before the time display and it is extremely to the right due to display issues.

Is there a way I can adjust the lcd display just like the desk top display (OSD)?  Anybody have any solutions?  I have the latest bios, chipset driver, and video driver installed, and working perfect except the display.

Thanks very much

Your display resolution isn't setup correctly. Right click an empty space on the desktop, select properties, the "Settings" tab, then in "Screen Resolution" select the highest resolution your display supports. Then select Apply, and then on OK.

No it is not the resolution issue.  you know how you adjust the regular desk top monitors (either CRT or LCD) with the OSD buttons which is on the monitors to move the screen left or right, top or bottom, thats the control I am looking for in this laptop.  I have tried all the resolution which is available to me in this laptop.

Laptops don't have OSD buttons, and I'm sure this is a resolution issue. Laptops only have one correct resolution they run at. If you can't resolve the issue by changing the resolution then your driver probably isn't working properly. Maybe you should download the current drivers from the lenovo website for your laptop and reinstall them.

I am fully aware that Laptops does not have OSD buttons, thats the reason I have posted this issue on this site.  I have the latest drivers, and I have tried all the resolution out there.  I have the latest drivers for this Laptop.  I think it is a Screen issue totally.  I might have to ebay a screen for this bad boy.

Which resolution have you set at the moment? At what frequency? Try booting the PC with a knoppix CD, it should boot into a more or less suitable resolution if it knows the hardware. If that works it should also help you verify if it is a hardware or software problem.
