Windows 7: Same problem...

Same problem...

I posted a thread about this, 2-3hrs ago, but I can't find it now, so I'll make a new thread.

I tried making a screen-shot so that you could see the problem but everything on it came out okay. The screen-shot was normal and it failed to show the problem.

Here's the problem: the screen in front of me has become overly elongated and it curves inwardly (left and right sides). Furthermore, every window that I open has an inwardly curve to it.

I've been trying to fix this for the last 2-3hrs to no avail. Please help!

PS: I even reinstalled the OS. Nothing helps.

sounds like a physical adjustment problem with your screen. That's why the screenshot is normal. Check the adjustment controls on your monitors/screen.

To post a screen you try a snip.
Just hit start, and in search box type snip.

Highlight the area you want & save it. Then upload here as a attachment, as seen in snip 1 below.

Also, please fill in your specs the best you can so we know more about the setup what we are dealing with, so we can better advise a possible solution.

I switched my OS to Ubuntu because the problem started on that OS. I would really like to use Windows 7 (I bought it yesterday) but I was playing around with the monitor setting and I really messed things up. Hence, the switch to another OS.

My monitor is a, hp pavilion mx703. There's a setting (I think it's the one that should help my situation the most) that's called "pincushion," which is on 51, but when I try to move it, it does nothing.

I read somewhere that maybe my monitor is dying. How do I know for sure?

The simplest way is if you have access to another PC or monitor known to be good:

1.) First things first, reset the monitor to its default settings. (this may help)
2.) Hook the monitor up to another PC. See if the problem persists.
-->If No.. then the issue is something to do with other hardware, not the monitor. (Could even be the cable itself)
--> If Yes, then theres a possibility the monitor is bad. (or again cable if same one was used)

if the monitor works fine on another PC, then try took hook up a different monitor to yours.
If that monitor does the same as yours, then possibly a graphics card or other hardware issue.
