    Hi all there,

    I am having a strange problem with my 2nd monitor that is hooked up to my laptop. I use it as an extended desktop, but since a few days, the X/Y alignment has gone completely wrong.
    It still connects and the desktop wallpaper is shown on the 2nd screen, but the bottom left of the extended desktop is shifted to almost the top right physical corner of the monitor and the rest of the screen is than located somewhere outside the physical boundaries of my monitor, making it impossible to work on it.

    I have tried to delete the TMM thread in the registry, forcing Vista to reinstall the monitor upon reconnecting, but that didnt solve it.

    I have tried to connect another monitor, but that gave the same problem, so it is not my monitor that has a problem.

    Now I am left with either my laptop that has a physical problem with the VGA output or with Vista that scr*w*d up once again. And I do hope it is the latter...

    Does anybody have any idea what I can do to solve this?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Merlijn

    You need to find the correct driver for this laptop. and reinstall it. I would go to the OEM sites and download it.

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks for the suggestion. I did try it out and re installed the drivers from the LG site. But it does not change anything.

    I did not expect it to change anything either, as it does not matter which monitor I connect to the laptop. Any monitor has the same problem.

    Any other suggestions?

    Thanks

    Anybody else any suggestions?

    I cannot believe that I would be the only one here and that nobody has any idea whatsoever?

    I am really disappointed in this website and forum. I specially created an account because I was sure somebody here would be able to help me, but I am very disappointed. Only one person came up with a suggestion.

    I have in the meantime already tried to upgrade the BIOS of my laptop and all the usual Vista updates, but the problem is still the same...

    Anybody that has encountered this problem, please do tell me about it.

    thanks

    Yves

    Since you have the current drivers and they are the correct ones, then I would say that you have a hardware issue.
