    Large entirely black lines on side of screen


    Hello everyone, I have a (I think) problem with my resolution.

    There are two noticeable entirely black lines [and no, this is not my monitor making the black lines.]

    There is one on the left side of my screen and it's about 15px wide, and another at the bottom of my screen that is about 5px in height.

    This happened about an hour ago, when I was notified something about my dual monitor experience [I only have one monitor], then my screen went crazy.

    My screen's native resolution is 1360x768, but I can make it 1366x768 with no problems.

    I cannot get any screenshots of this, sorry.

    Hello Arcturus,
    what graphics card are you using:Have you tried setting up the monitor to the card first.this is usually a button on the front of the monitor(say menu select) Entering this will normally let you access Vertical and horizontal shift and resizing functions:have you changed the monitor recently?.

    More info needed Topper.

    BE WARNED over scanning the monitor spec can damage the monitor especialy the line(horizontal timings).Stick to the maximum spec of the manufacturer. .

    I'm really stupid, I just found the auto position function on my monitor, you really got to love when it's hidden under 'Advanced', when it only took a second and isn't advanced..

    But thank you, I will keep my resolution at the recommended one, don't need to damage this at all!
