Windows 7: My monitor display positioned itself 20 pixels lower.

17 Dec 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
My monitor display positioned itself 20 pixels lower.

Hello, I'm CrazyKilla

After pressing the auto-adjust button on my monitor a few times, my monitor has now decided to display everything 20 pixels lower, now I got a black line at the top of my monitor and I cannot see my taskbar.
I went into the monitor options and found a option to adjust vertically, but it doesn't want to adjust anything, pressing + or - doesn't do anything and the value stays at 0.
I also tried factory reset without any success. What the hell?
Edit: I can adjust it horizontally without problems.

Hi! Try to reset BOTH your monitor settings, and your graphics card settings. Although you will lose any changes made in brightness/color/contrast etc.

Thanks, Didn't think of that. I just switched between a few resolutions and then back and it's now normal.

the display/monitor uses the generic driver for display and it is 1024768 or 800x600 but it looks very odd it should be bigger because my screen is bigger. I have a acer monitor but is there something I can download to fix the display size?
