    My monitor seems to be experiencing some kind of problem.

    The best way I can describe it is as a 'widescreen' mode. There is a black bar on the top and bottom of the desktop about 1 inch wide and extending across the entire length of the screen. I cannot move the mouse into this portion of the screen.

    When adjusting the horizontal and vertical settings, 100% stops with the 1 inch black bars still in place. I cannot seem to make the desktop fit the screen. It seems to have shifted into some other mode of viewing.

    I called Viewsonic tech support, but they didn't really know much else to do besides checking my settings. I am at 1024 x 768 resoloution, Radeon 8500 64MB graphics card, Windows XP and have installed the most recent drivers. Even when booting - the black bars are present, as if the monitor has somehow decided that is the mode it wants to be in.

    If anyone has come across something like this before or knows how I might be able to fix it, I'd be MUCH obliged!

    Regards,

    Jeff.

    Might be starting to fail, 3 year warranty on those generally check the date on the back. Absolute easiest think to do would be to try it on another computer. On the other computer see if you square up the image with the screen if you can't then its the monitor, if you can it could be the video card.

    Check your refresh rate to. Play around with it. I have a Viewsonic P95f+ and run the same resolution as you, but my refresh rate will probably be different than yours. But start to adjust that with the setting on your monitor too. It should center out but if not. Check if the warranty is good
