Solved: XP display too high
Hi,

I'd really appreciate some help on this one - it doesn't seem to affect the function of the computer it's just annoying !

Since I picked up the 'new' tower the display on my monitor is too high - and by that I don't mean the resolution - the taskbar has a black gap about 1/8" (3mm) below it and the rest of the display is therefore 1/8" further up ! This means the tops of any icons at the top of the screen are cut off and I can't see the floating Ashampoo Snap 5 toolbar which sits at the top of the screen.

As I say, this doesn't affect function it's just damn irritating, I can still use the top icons and when I put my cursor up to the top of the screen the Snap 5 toolbar drops down.
This is probably a simple fix if you know how but I don't - if anyone out there does please let me know !

Many thanks,
ams

you will probably be able to adjust that on the monitor settings , sounds like it just needs moving down
- can you post the make and exact model of the monitor

Hi,

Thanks for getting back to me

The monitor is a DGM L-2041W

I know how to set the resolution etc but I haven't got a clue about how to lower the display

Thanks,
ams

have a read of the manual here

Note the OSD controls
Adjust the vertical position of display.

nothing to do with the PC - this is all on the monitor

Hi,

You mate, are a damned hero !

It really didn't occur to me to do that as it was fine before I changed towers .

Many, many thanks - that was irritating me beyond belief !
