    my girlfriends sister was messing with her computer and somehow messed up the screen settings. here is a picture

    [​IMG]

    the red area is the viewing area of the screen and the blue part is what appears on the screen. so anytime i bring up a webpage or microsoft word or winamp, i have to go to the monitor settings to scroll over to the right to see everything. i tried to do a system restore on her computer but there is no option. any ideas on how i can fix this? i tried messing with the settings with no luck

    What kind of monitor do you have? Does it have an auto adjust setting?

    Also, you can sometimes get a driver made for your monitor instead of using the Windows one. That may help.
