Hello,

First, could you please post a screenshot of your problem?

Could it be a monitor issue? Try using the controls on your monitor to move the display.

Hello Pearl,

You might check to make sure that your DPI settings is set to 96 DPI, and that your screen resolution is set to it's native resolution to see if this may be the problem.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I know exactly what your talking about. Change the resolution. What size is your monitor and whos make is it? If it`s say a 17" 4:3 (square) monitor you should be at 1280 x 1024.
If it`s a widescreen we need to know the make & model so we can find the native resolution.

I could've sworn any resolution below 1280 x 1024 was practically obsolete...

Hell, most modern day CRT Televisions support that...
