Monitor problem

  1. I have a COMPAQ computer tied to a TATUNG monitor. The operating system is XP Home. The rastor on the monitor only covers the middle third of the screen vertically. I cannot expand it with the montor controls and cannot locate any expansion facility in the system.

    Can anyone tell me what might be going on here?

    Welcome to techSpot

    Does that monitor run in its 'native' resolution?
    Most 15" and some 17" have 1024x768
    Higher as the screensize increases.
    If your graphics card is set to the wrong resolution, you will get problems.
    Rightclick anywhere on the desktop, select Properties/Settings tab.
    There it shows the resolution. Check that it matches the monitor's native resolution.
