Strange monitor problem

  Skeletor 21:02 30 Mar 04

Hi all,

I'm running Win XP Home with NVidea Geforce 4 MX 440

For the second time in my life I have just booted from 'Hibernation' mode, and now the whole display has shifted to the right leaving about a 1/2 inch black bar down the left, it also seems to have stretched horizontaly slightly, which means I cant get to anything on the right. I know it's not the monitor as when booting everything is fine until it gets to the 'Windows is starting up' screen. I think it's probably the graphics driver, but using 'System restore' doesn't cure it, so I could be wrong.

Any ideas greatly appreciated,

HAve you tried to uninstall the nvidia driver and install a later (or earlier) version; has a lot of links to earlier versions of drivers.

Thanks Diodorus Siculus

I'm afraid I've tried uninstall/reinstall of the joy!

If I reduce the screen resolution it's ok, in as much as it fills the screen, but the icons and everything else are twice the size...yuck!

Any other ideas please?

Has the monitor got a recall feature or reset feature to factory settings?if it has try that.
