Yesterday, I bought a new 22" widescreen monitor, with a native resolution of 1920x1080. When I first attached it to my computer and booted up, the resolution was perfectly fine; I was able to extend my windows desktop using 2 screens (including my 'old' 17"(?) 1280x1024 screen).
Today, however, the pixels on the 22" are stretched beyond the physical boundaries of the screen, when I use the highest resolution (1920x1080). Has anyone got any idea how I might fix this?
It's pretty annoying having to set it to a lower resolution, since I can't seem to get rid of some of the blurry horizontal lines that appear.
I attached a picture I made with my mobile phone (theres a lot of dust in the camera, so it's a bit hazy), showing the display properties window. As you can see, theres a part missing. Maximizing a window on the 22" makes the topright buttons (close, minimize, restore) fall off the screen.
well the horizontal line that appear are probably due to your refresh rate. monitors paint their pictures from top down line by line, which is why there are horizontal lines when the refresh rate is incorrect.
as to your other problem, have you tried it with just the 22" monitor? Your video card may not support running two monitors at different resolutions like that. you could also reset the monitor to factory defaults through the menu you get by pressing the hard buttons on the screen.
