I own a laptop with a terribly broken screen, and I normally attach it to an external moniter for regular use. However, I noticed one day that the entire windows-everything that I would have normally would have seen on the screen- shifted to the left to about an inch. If you follow what I'm saying, I can't see anything that would have been at the left of my screen for about an inch and I see a blank black space at the right edge of the screen. This is not the first time this happened, as it happened with a much worse case, where the windows pretty much went flying everywhere on the screen to the point where it was completely unusable. I tried reinstalling windows, with no effect at all. What is this caused by, how do I fix it, and how do I prevent it from happening again.
I am also sure this is not caused by a viral infection of any kind.
Windows is at its normal position at the boot-up screen of XP and any point before that.
