Hi I turn my computer on today and look at my screen as you can see in the picture below to the left is cut off. There is a black bit on the left I go onto my Nvida settings and move the screen etc with the arrows but no luck it doesnt move the black part, you cannot see it in the screenshot because I dont think its the screen and I cannot move it..
Any suggestions on how to fix?

EDIT I looked at the screenshot and its shows the whole screen. But not when im looking at it now.
Hopefully someone knows what I'm on about.

Seems that on the logon screen when I type my password it has the black side aswell. its fine on the right side..

For some reason, my browser show a block domain or image on the screenshot. If you are running by a GPU card, might as well clean and reseat the card. More information to your computer specs or prior issue going to the problem at hand.

Thats where you will go to download and install the new drivers.


As far as uninstalling the old ones go to control panel, add/remove programs. And find the Nvidia Driver listed in there and uninstall it. Your screen resolution will go crazy for a bit untill you restart and then install the new drivers. then you will be asked to restart agian.

Ok. This did not work. I was lucky to have a spare monitor When i unistalled the graphics drivers after restart my monitor wouldn't turn on no light either, so I had to put in the back monitor and download new drivers again then connect my good monitor back.

Now whats next to fix as this did not work?
