[SOLVED] Screen shifted to the left
« on: June 24, 2018, 02:05:06 am »
some days ago i installed Pmint 8 on my friend's computer and i noticed the screen is shifted to the left (about 1/10 of screen's size) when it's set at 1366x768 Resolution (default resolution), it comes back to normal if i choose the other resolution available which is 1024x768. I tried other Distros like : Mx Linux 17.x, Xubuntu 18.04, Manjaro 17.1.10 but the same problem appears with every distro.
Is there a way to manually shift/set the screen back to normal ?

Hi Ly,

is there a way using the controls on the actual physical monitor to set things back to default.    Usually there is a "reset" facility.

If so, use it and does this help?

Hi Zeb,
thanks for the quick reply. There isn't a button to auto-adjust the screen's settings, only the on/off button  :-\

That's very unusual - is it a TV being used as a monitor ?

i've searched a bit and found that the actual auto-adjust button is the same as the on/off button (have to hold the button pressed it for 5sec to see the settings menu).
i adjusted the screen and now it's back to normal on 1366x768 So the problem is solved.
thanks for the help  :)
