Default Desktop screen off center.

Desktop screen off center.

My Aunt has a Dell computer and a Princeton Digital Monitor VL193.

About every other day, when she boots up, the desktop is off center to the left or to the right and it can be two or three inches. She has to restart to get it to correct itself.

She has to use the Ctrl/Alt/delete to shutdown when it's off to the left.

Any ideas?

Did you try new drivers?

Did you try to uninstall it?

What about the manul input settings on the monitor itself?

also check that you have a sturdy connection from PC tom monitor. Press the demagnetize button on one of the monitor buttons. Could it be possible that there is a magnet or anything else near the mointor. Has there ever been something magnetic near the monitor to corrupt the screen resolution?
