There should be a button on the bezel of your screen that says "auto" or it might be in the OSD menu press or select "auto" whilst in the bios to see if this rectify's the problem

ive tried that. for some reason it just switched and went off centered when i restarted my computer. everything is fully up to date on my computer. theres not enough time to mess with the monitor to center it with the buttons. and auto doesnt work? hmmm

OK. Your are talking about the splash/post screen right? Not what you see if you are actually inside the BIOS? Did you make any changes in the BIOS? Or has the problem just started by itself?

no not at all. im pretty sure my bios is up to date also. but im not sure where to find my bios update? acer aspire ax1700 x3700a is my computer model. my bios says R1-B3 in my tuneup utilities program. american megatrends is my bios provider if that helps.

OK. I don't know if this will work, but its the only thing I can think of : if you can get into your BIOS, please check and see if there is an option called "Init Display First" or soemthing similar - it should be set to PCI. Can you check if it is?
