Monitor Problem

  paddyjack 19:14 19 Jan 04

Just got a new monitor (well secondhand) a Dell P991 (Trinitron flat screen) every thing is fine except that the Icons insist on living on the right side.

While I can live with it, any body got any ideas??

I have tried inverting the monitor but it just looks wrong!!

What O.S are you using? Usually by right clicking on a blank part of the screen, click on arrange icons, you will then be able to rearrange them to your satisfaction.

The reason your icons look all wrong when you invert your monitor is because they enter the upside down mode -I think this facility was provided by Microsoft for those who live in Australia. :-)

Go to ` desktop` then `right click` mouse then move mouse cursor to ` arrange icons by ` then what items have you got ` ticked ` ????

Os Win98se, graphics card Nvidia 5200. I have done that put them on the left and tried to fix them there, but on restart they jump to the right.

thanks jes xxx

Auto arrange has done the job. Grey cells not working today!
