Hi,

I recently cracked my laptop monitor screen (drats...). The crack makes probably about 30% of the screen unusable; however, all of the damage is in the top left corner. I was wondering if there is a way to adjust the screen resolution so that the only display is in the undamaged part of the screen (in my case, the right side/bottom quadrant).

Here is my screen (the crack is in red because it is a screenshot): http://puu.sh/1UaMq
Here is what I want to display: http://puu.sh/1UaNS

Essentially I want to use the green part only... it would be as if my screen was actually that size. The part with the crack would be blank.

I apologize profusely if this is the wrong section for this question, or the question is in anyway in violation of a rule, custom or curtosy. Please point me in the right direction of this is the case.

Thank you to any good natured and kind soul who would take time out of their day to help me with my silly problems.

No. While you can change the resolution, the settings account for the entire screen. There isn't a way that I know of to not use part of the screen.
