Friends,

All of a sudden my monitor settings reverted to default mode.

Does it mean that the monitor is having some problems or is it due to power problems?

 I want to  adjust the monitor settings. But, unable to do it properly.The monitor having the following buttons.
LED 1
H-size : to adjust the horizontal size of the display
V-size : to adjust the vertical size of the display

LED 2
H-position : to adjust the horizontal positionof the display
V-position : to adjust the vertical positionof the display

LED 3

pincushion: to correct the bowing (concave) and bowing out (convex) curves at vertical edges of the display.

trapezoid: to correct trapezium (key stone)distortion on the to or bottom of the display.

Brightness and contrast are ok.

 Please tell how to use these control buttons to achieve proper settings.

My word documents appear skewed since I am unable to make these settings in a proper way.

Thanks

Does anything else look strange? It might be the video card has a problem.

As for the monitor buttons, with the DESKTOP showing:

LED 3 - use this to make the picture square.

LED 2 - use these to center the picture on the screen.

LED 1 - use these to fit the picture to just fit the scree. I like to leave about 1/16 of an inch of black around the display.

There is no other problem.
Right now, I think I have done some settings.But, there is more space on the left side of the screen. there is some space on the top also. Want to reduce the blank these areas

How to move the display to the left and slightly increase the size ?

Just like I said above.
<note: your monitor buttons may be different>

With just the DESKTOP on the screen, push the menu button on the monitor until the LED 3 (pincushion/trapezoid) function is active, then use the left/right or up/down buttons to make it square. If it is already square, skip this step.

Press the menu button until the LED 2 (H-position/V-position) function if active, and use the up/down and right/left buttons to center the DESKTOP on the screen.

Press the menu button until the LED 1 (H-size/V-size) function is active, and use the up/down and left/right buttons to fit the DESKTOP to the screen.

I am unable to move the diplay either right side or left side. I can move it top or bottom.

As a result, I could not make a square though a rectange is possible.

Please advise how to go about it.

some of the pdf files could not be downloaded and printed due to the display problems and the matter is urgent.

 i tried readjusting the size using the control panel option in win xp.

However, it is not giving any better results.

I think the problem is how to move the display position (not the size) right or left side.Some times it moves when I press the select button. I am not sure how to do it with select and some other button.

>> I am not sure how to do it with select and some other button << 
You push the Select (menu) button the bring up the function you want, and then one of the other buttons to make it move the way you want.
One of my monitors has 10 buttons. Another has 5 buttons, and I have one with only 3 buttons. So the exact conbination is different for each one. But they all do the same thing.

>> could not make a square though a rectange is possible <<
That's OK. I should have said, LED 3 (pincushion/trapezoid) is to make the corners 90 degrees, and the top/bottom - right/left sides, parallel. If you pretend that the top line is included:

trapezoid - /__\ or \__/
pincushion - (__) or )__(
what you want is - |__|

LED 2 (H-position/V-position) is like centering a painting in a frame.

LED 1 (H-size/V-size) is like the zoom-in, zoom-out.

If the buttons are not doing that, the monitor might be going bad. You should either have it checked out at a repair shop or get another monitor.

Some questions I should have asked before:
What kind of monitor?
What resolution are you using (eg: 800x600)

The monitor is Microtek color monitor. I am using 800x600.

After considerable efforts, I could makethe settings somewhat acceptable.

I could not however include the x button on the top right side used for closing any document/program.

Please tell me how to adjust this last setting.

Yes.

 The settings are  95% OK . Only thing is I have not yet adjusted the top right side.As a result, I am not able to see the X mark meant for closing any doc/program.

Will try again.

p.s: Last time, the moderator applied the forced accept rule. This time, I wanted to make sure that I don't forget to accept the answer!

Try putting the cursor on the Title Bar (Top of the screen) and holding the left mouse button down, and move the open window a little to the left.

Is your open window maximized? I think you have two different things going on here.
