    My monitor has a habit of setting the screen off centre which I have figured out how to put right.
    It also, on occasion, adjusts the colour/screen resolution. This hurts my eyes and, as I suffer from migraines, is not a pleasant experience.
    I haven't had the foresight to make a note of the correct settings and so am reduced to messing about with settings. It doesn't work, my eyes can't adjust and I end up with a splitting headache.
    I've tried google but don't understand what I'm even looking at.
    Basically, is there anyone out there that can tell me how to put this right please?xx

    Does it have an 'autocorrect' option that would do it in one click?
    Usually they go through that themselves when you switch on, don't they?

    Have you done a right click on the desktop (background) to see what graphics properties you can fiddle with>?

    It will be in display properties somewhere, but varies according to make.
    Or you could try updating your display driver - My computer, right click, properties, hardware, device manager, then find display and get it to find drivers online.
    In the meantime, do you have an auto setting on the monitor itself? That might make it easier than resetting each time.

    I am such a technophobe this is gobbledeegook to me I'm afraid. But thank you again.xx
