I have an Hp Pavilion 9680C with an M70 monitor. The display is stretched horizontally and there are very light grey horizontal "bars" across the screen (really only noticable when viewing a white background as I am now).

On my display settings (accessible on front of the monitor), I have to turn the brightness up to 100% or the scren is way to dark. Also, the on-screen menu to adjust the display will not allow me to change the horizontal size or "trapezoid" (everything else is functional).

I tried the factory preset, with no luck (I have to adjust the brightness as I mentioned).

I have a laptop but in looking at the connections, I do not think I can hook the monitor up to it to see what the display is like from the laptop.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

sounds like the monitor is on its way out.
depending on your vid card there may be settings in the software for it that allows you to adjust screen properties both nvidia and ati have those settings so check them.

whats the laptop - you should have a vga connector - so you can hook the laptop to a monitor.
then you possible use FN key and F4 - but this will depend on model
that combination toggles between OFF / Monitor only / monitor and laptopscreen
not necessarily in that order
