    Installed new LCD screen into an hp pavilion dv5 1235dx... while in boot and windows the picture is about 30% to the left. How can I fix or center screen position?

    Thank you so much ahead of time........

    Hello and welcome to TSG!!

    Do you mean that there is black, unused area on the left? Was the screen an exact replacement? Have you tried different resolutions?

    Does your video driver have positioning controls in the Advanced section?

    Was it exactly the same model number as the old screen?

    Was the old screen still viewable? Can you put it back in and see if it centers properly? I know it's a chore, but I'm trying to narrow the problem down to either the LCD itself, or something that may have gotten damaged during the replacement process.
