HP Mini 110 Otherwise functioning normally, but the display has shrunk in size, shifted to the upper left leaving a wide black space on the right and below. Worst of all the display has split vertically, where the top of the viewable display appears duplicated below the black bar at the base of the full viewable window. Even the mouse pointer gets duplicated in the portion of the frame below when you move to the top of the main viewable window.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

To help diagnose if it's a hardware issue or possible video issue, can you hook up an external monitor?
Please report back with your findings.  I would also run a diagnostics test if you have an onboard diag or use the HP Boot CD to diagnose.

What happens when you change the resolution on the machine?  Does it look fine when booting into the BIOS?>

Try reinstalling display drivers for your graphics card.

Go into Device Manager (Right-Click Computer and should be link or tab for device manager in next window). Delete whatever driver is listed under display or graphics and restart the laptop. Windows should pick them up and install them again.

Did you install any new software hardware that caused this problem?

Is the desktop resolution set to match the display resolution?  Do you have any display utilities running in the background?

That is a possibility - if the external monitor looks ok, the video card is working, but the connection to the LCD or the LCD electronics are no good.

Try going to display in control panel and setting up to use the computer display only, ie no settings for external monitor. Perhaps the computer is trying to replicate screen to external monitor and for some reason the drivers are going haywire.

The same driver is used for the external display as the built-in screen - it's not going to do something different on each.
