    I acquired a used LCD Viewsonic LCD Monitor with a strange quick. Once Windows XP has fully loaded, the graphics are fine. However, before Windows loads, the Dell Splash Screen that allows users to enter Setup, and the Windows XP Splash Screen are not even close to being displayed properly. Specifically the bottom portions of both are displayed in the middle of the screen and tops are pushed well above the top of the screen and cannot be seen. The problem does not occur when I use other monitors.

    I've adjusted the monitor settings every way I can think of but nothing I've done to this point has helped. I've adjusted the resolution and refresh rate and that hasn't seemed to change anything either.

    Have I missed something?

    TIA for your thoughts...

    Do you have the proper graphics and monitor driver for the video card and monitor? This could make a considerable difference in the display. Otherwise it may just be a quirk you have to live with.

    Ron, go to folder options in control panel, on the general tab, and click restore defaults. Now go to device manager and uninstall the monitor, shut down then re start your PC, windows should find drivers due to 'plug & play' feature.

    The monitor may be having trouble "auto adjusting" as Windows loads. I have seen this sort of thing and pressing the Auto Adjust button fixes it until the resolution changes again.

    cheers, Paul
