I have a really old 14" Tandon monitor. Windows only uses about 4/5 of the monitor screen. Unlike any modern monitors I have used, it has no means to stretch / move etc. the useable screen area (by way of buttons or wheel on monitor itself). I have been looking for a driver to install (I am just using windows standard one) that may give me these options. However, I can find nothing about this monitor online, the company dont even seem to have a website.

Is there anything I can do? I currently use a screen area of 640x480 because if I try 800x600 it uses even less of the screen and appears very squished.

I am using win98SE and the display adapter is Cirrus Logic 546X 1.71h if thats important.

Thanks

If you don't want to mess inside the screen about all you can do is LOWER the refresh rate as low as possible.

Also sometimes on the back there is a series of holes that you can turn and adjust the horizontal width with a screwdriver.

800x600 * 56hz should be best for that monitor.

If that is the screen I'm thinking of you should be able to use 1024x768 if you set your refresh to 87hz interlaced.
(this will make the screen area larger as the drive rate is lower, counterintuative I know)

Good Luck
