Trouble viewing full screen on secondary monitor.


Im having trouble with a customers secondary display. The problem is that the desktop isn't shown completely, it shows all of it except for the bottom half of the task bar. I have tried everything I can come up with. I tried moving the desktop in the video card control panel, but it won't allow me to move it. The secondary display is a Samsung S19A10 and the video card is an Nvidia 8400GS.

Thanks in advanced.

Have you tried to reinstall the drivers for the video card and monitor?

Have you tried different screen resolutions? What's the current resolution set at?

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

It looks like that video card has one DVI connection and one VGA connection.  Is the problematic video on the VGA connection?  If so, have you tried using the auto-adjust feature on the monitor to center the view?

Hi Run5k,

yes the monitors are VGA and DVI I'll have to check what connection is being used the the monitor with the issue, about the auto adjust feature im not sure if there is one on the monitor also have to check but i think that there is no menu button just the power,

Even if there isn't an auto-adjust button, I'd be surprised if you couldn't at least manually adjust the geometry.

had to hold the power button for 5 sec, for auto adjust, and that was it, thanks
