    My computer is a HP. More often than not,when I print a document,the right
    side of the page is cut off. My mouse pointer also exits off the right side
    of the screen. The video card is an NVida MX200 at 800X600, refresh has been from 60 to75hz.( Iv'e tried higher resolutions and rates.)
    If I adjust the monitor to fix the pointer I'm all the way to the left as far as the adjustment will allow me to go.
    Printed pages have a word or two missing, even when I set the tabs out.
    The printer is a Lexmark X5150. I'm using XP Home.
    Any suggestions? :confused:

    To fix the screen, read the model number of your monitor off the back of it. Do a search for the model number/brand driver for it. Then right click on the desktop, choose properties/settings/advanced/monitor/properties/driver/update driver and load the correct monitor driver instead of just setting it plug and play.

    Check the paper settings on the printer, make sure if your using plain paper it's set for A4 as a paper type.
