Monitor question
Thu, 03-04-2004 - 4:45pm
I just bought a new tower, but still have my old monitor. The picture I now get doesn't fill the whole screen. There's about a half inch black rim around the picture. Someone told me to use the buttons on the monitor but I can't figure them out.

One says "select" and beside it is an up arrow.

Below that is a button that says Degauss and beside that is a down arrow.

How do I use these to make the picture use the whole screen of the moniter?

I can find the lines that have vertical and horizontal with the arrows next to them, but when I hit the arrows on my keyboard to try and stretch the screen size, it doesn't work!

Help, what am I doing wrong?
