Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Monitor screen shrinks!

\015 Hi, been experiencing this problem, computer screen shrinks to half the full screen size, forming an hourglass shape, making it very difficult to view anything.\015\012\015\012Was able to solve the problem once or twice earlier by unplugging and then re pluggin. But it doesn't seem to work anymore! What could be the problem??\015\012I've got a photo of the problem if you need.\015\012\015\012Thanks in advance!\015

Answers :

This is a electronic problem with CRT monitors and TVs.
\015\012If the distortion is not severe then you can adjust the image with the monitor settings with the front panel buttons on the monitor.
\015\012If you cannot adjust out the distortion then the monitor need repair.
\015\012The costs may not be worth it, I would put my money towards a LCD monitor.
The problem is due to under voltage.You may have an unstable power or your computer auto voltage regulator (AVR) is not doing its part..If not then you have a busted capacitor..resolder all capacitors and replace ruptured capacitors with same value and ratings..
