I bought this computer (second hand) and initially the monitor wouldnt work, so as there were two monitor points I tried the second and then it worked and looked fine, next time I turn it on it doesn't come on so I put it in the first port and now it works..but it's gross and widescreen so I can only see part of the screen, I couldn't adjust the monitor so that it fits... whatttt


Secondly, I've tried two different sets of speakers in every hole imaginable and it just will not pick up that any audio device is connected.


I'm not great with computers so any help explained in a patient and simple fashion would be really appreciated! :)

Please post the make and model of this computer.


Did the monitor come with this computer?


Not knowing the make and model of this computer I can only point you in the direction of the video control panel in the Control Panel.  If you open the Control Panel you will see something similar to the item outlined in red  below.  This will give you the options for screen size, resolution,etc.  Nvidia is the manufacturer of my graphics, but there are other manufacturers.




Are the speakers made for use with a computer?  The audio output of a computer is like the output of a stereo's pre-amp, it requires amplification in order to turn up the volume.  Computer speakers have built in amplification, home stereo type speakers don't.
