Crooked Image on Laptop Monitor

Q: Crooked Image on Laptop Monitor

I tripped on a cord connected to my Toshiba Satellite 1800-S204 laptop tonight and it fell onto the carpeted floor from a table about 1.5 feet off the ground. Not too high up, but bad enough. The computer was still running and appeared to be fine, but upon closer inspection I noticed that the image on the screen is now slightly crooked, turned a tiny bit counterclockwise. It's the kind of thing easily fixed on a desktop monitor, but this is a laptop monitor and no such adjustments can be made. It doesn't really interfere with my work, only that the top right corner of any maximized window, where the minimize, maximize, and close buttons are, is halfway off the screen. It's more of an irritation than anything, and will continue to be one whenever I decide to watch DVDs. Is this a serious problem? How can I get it fixed? Thanks.


Preferred Solution: Crooked Image on Laptop Monitor

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

This is a mechanical issue, the LCD display has moved behind the bezel. The only way to fix it is to take the display section apart, probably not a job you want to tackle. It can be fixed, but I have no idea what the cost might be...

The touchscreen on the laptop is completely black.  The computer is turning on and the backlight to the keyboard is functioning, as well as the fan.  At times I can get a series of 8 beeps that can be heard.  I referenced this and understand that code indicates LCD failure.  I connected the laptop to an external monitor via HDMI cable and it is black as well.  I did remove the battery for a few minutes and then reinstalled it.  I also check the LCD cable connection, unplugged it, and plugged it back in.  No change.  What could be causing this problem?
Thank you for any help!

this is really getting on my nerves... but i have an old deskjet 812c that i have found to be a great old printer and it has done its job until recently...

i was printing a doc. for school and although every word was on the page and everything was inorder, the print came out crooked.

now i reprinted thinking that maybe the paper was getting caught and then printing, that wasnt the case. then i tried unloading the paper and then reloading new sheets, that didnt work.

finally i unloaded and reloaded the software and got some updates. nothing has worked for this printer to print a full page totally lined up and neat for presentation to my instructors... has anyone had this problem and gotten it fixed? what can i do to get this problem straightened out without going into a repair shop?

Hi there,I recently ordered an X1 2017 but sent it back for several reasons. One minor issue with it was that the left hinge was slightly crooked. Not by a lot, some might not even notice, but for me not really acceptable for a 2k5? device. Unfortunately it was the first thing I noticed during unboxing. With the lid closed you see that it's not parallel to the rest of the device. Meanwhile I have ordered one again and unfortunately it's the same in terms of crooked hinge. So I'm suspecting a general "problem". Obviously the support team never ever heard of such a thing.Just wondering - how is your's? I don't think I'll do anything about it since I don't think the service team will do a better job than the factory and generally things don't tend to get better by taking them apart. However - just curious if I'm the only one. Cheers,reach

So I picked up a 13" 720 from best buy yesterday, and so far I love it. The only issue, however, is that the left hinge is at a slant. When I close the laptop, both hinges are pretty easy to "wobble" if I press on them with a little force. https://i.imgur.com/yl2CY40.jpg Is this normal as far as this line of laptops go? Is it worth going in and returning it?

Hi everyone,New Lenovo Yoga 710 15" owner here.  I absoluteley love this laptop, but when I close the lid, it's doesn't quite line up with the bottom portion of the laptop.  When closed, the top (lid) is crooked. This hinges look ok to me.  When I had the laptop open to upgrade the RAM I even inspected them closer and I don't see an issue there. Anyone else with a 710 having this issue?  Is there a fix? Thanks!

Hi, All.
I just purchased two Samsung 172T black flat panel monitors. After I opened the double hinge stand and stood them up, the panels tilted to the right. In other words, they are not level. The shelf is pretty level. The panel is not level or parallel with its base. Both units tilt the same on different shelfs. So, I cannot believe that I got two bad units.

Is there an adjustment screw on the hinge that will enable me to level the unit? I have yet to call Samsung - I thought that I would try here first.

My Lenovo 710, intel i5 8gb RAM version has an extremely irritating problem in that it emits a high pitched noise from the left side of the chasis (opposite to the charging port) when charging and powered off. The noise is very high pitched, so much so that it almost tops my hearing limit. (I am 20 years old.) It only occurs when the laptop is off and charging, and occurs regardless of the battery %. I am certain that the noise is coming from the left side of the computer, and not the actual wall wart itself. I am using the charger that came with my brother's old Lenovo 710 pentium laptop, but since the amperage and voltage output seem to be a same, I don't imagine that it's the cause of the problem. Secondly, the right hinge on my computer is crooked. Not sure why, not sure how, but it is. It doesn't seem to affect anything, as my computer still folds and closes properly without any noticeable deformities. Not a big problem, but somewhat irritating.

Hi, my brother said that he started getting this problem when he bumped his desk. The screen went black with streaks of red running down the screen after he had bumped it. His computer is connected by DVI, and when he used the HDMI port in the monitor for XBox the image was working fine. He hasn't been able to test and see if it's just the DVI port that has been broken as he doesn't have any other devices that use DVI in the house.

What he would like to know if is if this a problem with his computer or monitor. It only started happening when he bumped his desk. The picture is where we are at now.

It could be either the monitor, the video adapter in the computer or the cable. Easiest way to test is with a different monitor and try that your monitor on a different computer.

I have an HP laptop and I have been running it with dual monitors. I finally decided to upgrade to Windows 7 and after I installed it I noticed that the built in monitor of my laptop looked strange and when I opened the display settings to change the screen resolution and set the external monitor as a separate monitor rather than a mirror I noticed that only one monitor was detected and it was the external one (Generic non-pnp monitor on standard VGA graphics adapter) and the built in monitor does NOT show up at all.

I've tried the detection button, in hopes that the computer would read the built in monitor and I could fix the problem. This did not help. I tried unplugging/replugging the external monitor to no avail. I tried restarting without the external monitor plugged in and it STILL reads the built in monitor as if it is the external one. Is there anyway to fix this? I have not tried re-installing the OS, not yet anyways.

Any suggestions ?

A:Monitor Issues - Laptop Reading Built In Monitor as if it were my external monitor.

Only thing I can think of is to disconnnect the external monitor, uninstall any monitors listed and then reboot and hope the computer installs the correct drivers for the laptop monitor.

I am using a 22" screen for my primary screen and the laptop lid open for a secondary screen. The main screens resolution is 1680x1050, I can set it to anything I want and it's always using the full screen. The laptop screen on the other hand will only use the full screen if it's at 1400x1050 resolution (max for that screen, IBM Thinkpad T43). With the large 22" screen I have no trouble reading the screen at high resolutions, the screen is huge, with the little 14" screen though I have to strain to read the screen at 1400x1050.

The problem is when I set the laptop screen to anything lower than 1400x1050, it uses less of the screen. Preferrably I want it at 1280x1024 or 1024x768 (I dont know which I want yet as I can't see the freaking screen at that resolution). At 1280x1024 for instance the useable screen is just a box in the middle, so the "1280x1024" is still barely readable for me cause it's shrunk from full screen, plus it's just annoying only using a portion of the screen.

I have played with the ATI Control Center, the Thinkpad display settings and windows display settings and just cannot get this thing to go full screen at lower resolutions when docked and using the external monitor.

Anyway to resolve this?

I currently upgraded everything from my old computer.

Old specs:

Motherboard: P4S800
Stock cpu fan
PSU: 450
Graphics Card: GeForce FX 5500
120 GB Western Digital HDD (Master)
250 Seagate HDD

Intel Core 2 Extreme 6800
P5W DH Deluxe
2 1GB Corsair RAM
Vigor Gaming Monsoon CPU fan
NVidia 7900 GS card
Audigy 4 sound card
(Currently still have the old HDDs)
1 SATA Wester Digital 250 HDD

I should also note that I do not have an official computer monitor. Rather, I have a tv that has a VGA outlet. The 7900GS card came with a VGA adapter, which is what I am using right now.

Here's my problem: As soon as I turn on my computer, everything powers up. Since it's a new set up, I have to go into BIOS and configure everything, BUT nothing shows up on the screen while the computer is booting up. Only once have I seen something on the screen. I got to the BIOS screen, but then the image on the screen went away and I got a "No Signal" message. Now, I can't see anything at all, so I'm not sure what my issue is. I even tried one of my old CRT monitors, but I still get no image from the computer. Could it be that I got a bad graphics card?? What do you guys think??

Are you still using the Gforce FX 5500? Try resetting the bios to failsafe defaults and see if you can "see" the boot screen. If not, make sure AGP is set as the first display device

There is only 5 things it can be, monitor , CPU, mobo, RAM, PSU. :haha:

Can you be more specific, is the computer beeping now when you/he starts it up? How does he know it's ok if he can't see anything? A good clean POST will give you 1 long beep, if that's all he gets then maybe it is just the monitor. Can he borrow a working monitor to try it?

I recently moved my computer from my house to my new apartment. When I set it back up, the entire bios load up would not show up, as in the monitor would not output any image. The monitor would turn back on when it came to the XP login screen and from there on the computer would run fine. Sometimes when the computer would be in stand by and I would turn it back on, and the mouse's cursor would be stuck, even though the mouse would actually move.
Nevertheless, I was going to go play bioshock, which I had already beat, there was a shakey. twichy glich on the middle of the screen, which made it unplayable. It was also sort of laggy and had bad fps. I thought maybe I should turn off SLI and try it again. Well, the instant I turned off SLI the screen went totally blank and now I cannot get any image on my monitor.
I can still turn on my computer and even log in to XP, and turn it back off by keyboard commands but I have absolutely no image at any time.
I have 2 Nvidia Geforce 7950 cards.

What should I do?
Could reseating the cards solve the problem?

Okay, if you tried a different display that's a good first troubleshooting step. The second would be to check (and replace) the cables to the display.

Third option would be to replace the video card (just buy one from a retailer who accepts returns).

To answer your other question yes, you can slave the drive and copy the data.

Hi All I am in need of assistance.
I have a new Dell 17r inspiron laptop that only has hdmi output. 
I have projectors that connect with VGA port only. 
I purchased hdmi to vga adapters and when I connect to the laptop the image will jump from the laptop to the projector and jump back to the laptop and it will continue to do this over and over. 
There are no error messages. on either. These are working projectors. These are new hdmi/vga adapters.
I have tried to change resolution to lower settings and I have tried to lower refresh rates. The projector can support all of what resolutions the laptop has for settings thus the image does show for a second on the projector. These are smartboard/projector 600 series. I have also tried swapping our the adapters that didn't work either. I have also tried making the resolution settings shutting down laptop , connect the hdmi/vga adapter and turn the laptop back on and the issue is still the same. I can't find any posts/forums on this issue to date. 


A:HDMI to VGA adapter connected to laptop to a project image jumps from laptop to projector and back and forth

I am not aware of any issues with the 17r using external monitors.   I would suggest trying to narrow down the problem and go from there.   I certainly understand that you may not have all the devices present but if you do I would try to verify if this is problem with HDMI on the notebook, a problem with the adapters, or the monitors.
Basic steps, try running the notebook under power saving or high performance in the Nvidia control panel. The system is  an optimus and it would be interesting to find if the problem only occurs with the integrated Intel GPU (power saving) or the Nvidia GPU (high performance).  If you aren't familiar with configuring Optimus the following document may help.
Uninstall and reinstall video drivers.  Download the latest Intel and Nvidia video drivers for your model of notebook from support.dell.com. Download the drivers and save them to the desktop, please don't install them yet.  Uninstall the Intel and Nvidia driver and software from the system and reboot.  Now install the drivers, with the Intel driver first, followed by the Nvidia driver.
If possible connect the notebook to a HDMI monitor, something that doesn't require the use of any adapters and see if the problem continues.  Verify if the HDMI ports is working at all on the notebook.
If it looks like video is working fine on the notebook, and HDMI works well. Test the HDMI to VGA adapters.  If possible try them on ... Read more

Hello all,
I have a Phillips 32" LCD (model # 32TA2800/98) that I connect my laptops to with a VGA cable. I usually had my Gateway NV53A (AMD Mobility Radeon HD 4200 series Graphics card) connected and I never had a problem. Recently I connected my Samsung to the monitor and again, had no problems. When I reconnect my gateway the PC detects the monitor but the monitor does not detect the PC. If I switch back to the Samsung it works fine. I have reset the TV to factory default the only way I know how (owners manual). I have unplugged the power cable to the TV for 10 min+. I have changed from a 14 pin VGA to a 15 pin. I have updated all drivers.

It appears this one has got them all stumped. I really need help with this one and I am at a total loss. I would be forever in someones debt.

Could it be that the TV has a capacitor that holds the settings for an extended period of time? Maybe I should leave it unplugged for 24-48 hours?

HELP, please, anyone, you will be appreciated!

My situation is this... about a year ago I bought a "hot" IBM ThinkPad model 2652 from a guy in LA. I feel strongly that this computer was not legit because A) it did not come with any software (XP, Pro, whatever), B) the seller did not have the original sales receipt and C) the seller seemed a bit shady, meeting me in a bar and wanting cash only. I know, shame on me for buying it, but I was a desperate student at the time and REALLY needed a laptop for an upcoming project and to write papers on at home.

Now I fear I have really goofed, as I cannot get the screen of the ThinkPad to do ANYTHING. (Remember, hot computer, no warranty.) It makes some blips like it is on, and the lights across the top blink (the battery icon, the moon, and sometimes the power icon) but THE SCREEN IS COMPLETLY BLANK.

OK here's the REALLY bad part... I called IBM support thinking I could ask questions about my blank screen problem. Before I found out they charge $195.00 MINIMUM to answer phone questions, I GAVE THE REP MY NAME, ADDRESS AND PHONE #. She asked for the serial # on the bottom, and the one I gave her was not the correct one... fearing the laptop is hot, I changed one or two letters and numbers. I thanked her when I found out they charge for support but now I am stuck with...

A:Nervous and No Image on Monitor

Dear Ms Spaten,

Forget about the computer police, IBM does not care who you are.

My son had a similiar problem with his Thinkpad, it turned out to be a loose power connector.
When you plug the connector to the commercial power in, the indicator light should change color to show that it is not running on battery. If this does not happen then the battery is probably discharged.

Hope this helps.

My monitor works fine when I first boot up my computer. I can watch it go through the motions of starting up. Then I get the Windows98 screen that appears just before the desktop comes up. Then it goes blank, as if it has been turned off or the screen has timed out (like it does when you have been away for awhile). I don't know what to do, or how to fix it. Can anyone help?

This is what happened to lead up to this problem:
I tried to install an expansion pack for a game I have, but it would not work properly. The error message said it was an invalid page fault caused by the DDHELP file. The help people said that I should first try to change the hardware acceleration rate to fix the problem. That didn't work. So they suggested I update the drivers (I have a RAGE IIC AGP). But when I ran the installation program I kept getting messages that the file I wanted to copy was older than the one currently on my computer, and did I want to replace it. I always said no. But I accidentally clicked yes on 2 or 3 files. It finished the installation. Then I tried to run the game program again to see if what I had done had worked. And the screen went blank. I rebooted a few times and it always goes out just when I should get to my desktop.

I'm not computer savvy enough (or knowledable enough) for this. Does anyone know how I can fix this. I don't even care if the game works or not, I just want to get back to a functioning screen.

There is one intermittant problem with this monitor(Viewsonic) :- the entire image is slightly tilted upwards from the right side ( Image area where the clock shows) , this has happened before when I have shifted the monitor from place to place . but I didn't pay attention >now I have seen that the new LG monitor has an adjustment to undo such a tilt ( under shapes)
I was wondering is there any way to do some adjustment in the Viewsonic as well.

About the new monitor(Lg) should I just let Win xp detect it or should I use the driver that came with the monitor

any help would be appreciated.

Canon S95. Tried monitors on two different Toshiba laptops, both about 5 years old. Colors crisp on camera, dull on monitor. Tried many different photo programs - no difference. Monitors both set for 1024 x 728 max resolution and 32 bit color. This is a new camera. Previous is Canon SD300, which made superb slideshows on older Adobe Acrobat, but now has same problem when I use it, so the problem isn't the new camera. The old slideshows still look great on both computers.

I'm transferring images from camera to computer with a small diameter USB cable, and am traveling, so can't try another cable. Could this be it?

Any other ideas welcome.

Thanks to all...

If the background on the monitor screen is anything other than white, the images and text appear with a light green color around the edges. If the background is white, everything is normal. I've degaussed, moved speakers away and replaced the video card, also tried another working monitor but no change.
Any suggestions on what is causing this and anything I can do to rectify this annoying problem?

HelloRecently I purchased a SAMSUNG 28" 4K Monitor, which soon developed a habit of generating either an oscillating mesh over one half of the image or a double image i.e. two equal images side-by-side.The monitor has been repaired two times and when it started to do the same thing for the 3rd time I insisted to get it replaced. Now I have a new one and after a month or so it started to have the same problem as the 1st one.Slowly but surely I am starting to question the role of my laptop. Laptop is T570 20H9, less than one year old, came with Windows 10 Pro installed.Please, advise.Best regards, Timotej

I have a dell laptop that has 1920x1080 resolution. However, i connect it to an external monitor that has 1920x1200 resolution. Basically almost everything i do is on my external monitor which acts as my main primary screen. Thus i do sometimes open some windows or drag a window or so to the other screen like youtube etc to the laptop screen which is the secondary monitor.

My issue at the moment is everything is way too big on the laptop screen. I want to have 1920x1080 resolution but its way too big. I googled what is my resolution on it and it shows 1536 x 864. Can someone tell me how to change this to 1920x1080? I googled what is my resolution on the external monitor and it does show 1920x1200 which is correct.

My external monitor which is my main monitor is fine at the moment with the 1920x1200. Its windows 10 but im assuming this should be very similar to windows 7 to fix this issue?
