Wow, 4 years old...that is old for a monitor...probably weighs a ton/has extra wide plastic border, and has the ac plug in a non effiecient place so you can't push it all the way up against the wall.
I had actually OVER pincushioned my monitor with the graphics card software and the on-monitor buttons pincushion which cased the edges on mine to be weird (zoom feature, vsize, + hsize you know etc), so you might look itno that if it pertains... Fixed mine by resetting the pincushioning on both inputs.
heh. The other day my monitor fell off a 2 1/2ft stool onto its top, bounced and turned off. I picked it up and plugged it back in and doesn't seem the worse for wear. I was quite pleased...even though its a sylvania 17" that maxes at 70hz 1280x960. I was certain the thing was doomed.
There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in his home.
