Hi

I have ASUS VW192s monitor bought about several months ago. I don't know if I have these some kind of waves on it since then but now I notice them... they are not really visible but are kind of annoying when I play games. What could these waves be?
Also, I searched the options and I couldn't find how to set the vertical/horizontal size.. there's option for vertical/horizontal position but no for size...

the weird waves are likely from a bad cable or a bad cable connection, is the monitor connected by VGA or DVI-D? Id check the cables to make sure their well attached and if that doesnt work try swapping it out with a different cable if you have one.

I have just read few hours ago that the recommended resolution is 1440 x 900. However, the monitor has been always set on 1280x768. I tried 1440 x 900 but I don't like it as it is very miniature. The thing is, I don't have any problems with the h/v size on 1280x768 when I'm on the desktop however when I play games some cms are cut :thumbsup:. Most of the games I play are on 1024 x 768 and the edges and the sides are cut off. I can't play games on higher resolution as I don't have a great graphic card/computer in overall.

from what Ive read up on it the only option for that particular monitor is an auto size adjustment. it should all be done automatically. why do you need to change it?
