Problem with resolution. Desktop is wider is off the screen!

Hi I have Samsung 2032bw monitor for about 3,5 years and Ive never had this problem. Yesterday I was watching youtube video when suddenly my screen frezze or maybe pc. Then I restart my PC and you know when your PC is loading, first you see is motherboard name... so I restart it and picture was bad like every few centimeters has one column of this (VVVVVVVVVVVV rotate this for 90˙). Then I turn PC off. Few minutes after I turn PC on but my desktop was off the screen, its better to say it was wider (off monitor).

I dont know why this is happening. Then I unplug monitor and plug it again. I did this few times before was good. Now every time I turn PC on, windows scree, and desktop and everything is wider its off the screen.

How can I solve this?

Try Start>Control Panel>Appearance and Personalization>Adjust Screen Resolution.

You need the highest resolution your screen can use.

It may be that the youtube video somehow messed with your display settings.

You could try a system restore to a point in time before you played the video.

Is there a chance that my monitor is broken? Maybe capacitor?

It's possible, but more likely to be a bad lead or pin connection.

Did you try a system restore?

I think I would look though the monitors setup menu for a restore factory defaults setting.
