Monitor fault

My 17in Belinea monitor recently developed a fault, in which the display width is too wide for the screen (I have to move the adjustment sideways in order to see either the left or right side of the desktop.)
There is also some pin cushion distortion.
The on screen controls will not rectify either fault, although everything else works fine, and the display is still steady and pin sharp.
I do not think that this can be too serious, but the monitor is about a year out of guarantee, and local TV repairers do not seem prepared to solve the problem. I know that a new monitor only costs about £90 at present, but it seems to be too good to scrap. Does anyone know where I could get circuit diagrams for this unit? Belinea's website has no such info.

Once monitors are playing up it is best just to get a new one. You could take the opportunity to upgrade to a 19".

Try different refresh rates. From Right click on empty desktop choose properties\Settings\Advanced\Adapter

You should be able to change the width of the display.

On the distortion, its most frequently magnetic. Speakers (telephone handset) are the usual cause but a Max/Min Thermometer has probably been the weirdest.
