    Windows xp - suddenly screen is off center to the left. Nothing I have tried, including "Command Prompt" has gotten it recentered. What should I do?

    Have you tried ajusting the controls on your monitor?

    You should have adjustment settings on the monitor it-self, try those. You may also have changed your resolution settings. Put it back to what it was if you have.

    Thank you all, but still no solution. My screen (WindowsXP) is about an inch off to the left. There are no controls on the Compaq 7550 monitor itself by which I can correct it. Accessing "Comand Prompt">Properties>Layout>Screen Buffer Size>Window Size>Window Position does give a method of correcting the layout, but the correction does not "take" when I leave command prompt. Thus I am losing the left side of the window, and wasting an inch on the right.
    Thank you all.
