Having problems with your Samsung SyncMaster 2233BW 22" LCD Monitor ?

My picture is smaller than the screen size.

\015 This is the latest of problems that began with a blank screen. I've tried to fix 'things' by pressing 'any key', by disconnecting and reconnecting the video cable (sinal cable?) in various sequences, by following instructions I found in the 'troubleshooting' section of the on-line manual (pp 37-42). These efforts got me from: blank screen to small window in upper left corner switching 'analog' to 'digital' several times before giving me the 'check signal cable' box sometimes with 'analog' and another time 'digital'. Continuing instructions to go to the control panel thru to the settings to check rhe resolution (which I could change depending on which word was in the 'check signal cable' box) and the refresh rate (60 hertz). somewhere while doing all this I got the full screen saver but not the icons to open anything and now I have that same screensaver but in a smaller size. I've also tried pressing the menu button and scrolling, with great difficulty, thru the listed topics but found nothing helpful or worth trying to change. My screen is 22". The image is 15". I am using a Lenovo s10, hence the Samsung 22". Having spent at least 6 hours on this, my frustration is beyond tears!\015
