Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Monitor: Offset display

\015 I have a Dell LCD Monitor that worked fine when I purchased the\015\012desktop. A while back I had relocated my workspace and from that point\015\012on when I play certain games I have experienced a vertical offset. I\015\012tried to figure out what the problem was but just decided to play the\015\012games in windowed mode. My favorite multi-player game was not affected\015\012by this in the resolution that I prefer to play so it didn't bother me\015\012any. Now I have moved down the road taking the monitor with me in the\015\012car on a pillow and once plugged in I'm now experiencing an horizontal\015\012offset that does affect the game I most prefer to play.\015\012\015\012How on earth do I resolve this? I attempted to call Dell, but\015\012considering my limited warranty expired 2 mos ago they want to charge\015\012me 40 something dollars for something I just know has got to have\015\012simple resolution.\015\012\015\012Thank you for taking the time and I appreciate any helpful feedback.\015

This is caused by sending a video signal to the screen at a refresh rate higher than 60hz. A LCD Doesn't refresh the image by scanning from top to bottom like a traditional CRT or picture tube. They are hard set to 60hz and can not understand anything else. Setting it to anything else will cause it to not display a video signal, picture tearing (little blocks with horizontal movement), Offset video or convergents issues (colors appear offset giving it the 3d movie look with out glasses on)

To fix it you need to go into your operating systems display settings and pick out a LCD monitor with a refresh rate of 60hz

Hope that helps
