Monitor Off-Center

Sony Vaio

Specs: XP, P4 - 2.2
Several months ago, I connected and (3) year old Sony 15" LCD monitor to a (3) year old Sony Vaio.

Every week or so, when the computer is rebooted or comes out of sleep mode, the desktop image on the monitor is way off center (sometimes half a screen off), and I have to utilize the monitor's menu to readjust the pitches to get it back.

What could be causing this anomoly (sorry, not spelled right).

Thank you very much for responding.

We already told you in your earlier post below.

No, this issue that I am having was not what the previous post was about. In that post, I was asking about the video card. I have not added any video card. The VIAO still has the "onboard" video hardware.

This post is regarding a "problem" I am having with the monitor.

Try a different LCD monitor, if the same thing occurs it's probably in your on-board display adapter/drivers.

Is the Sony monitor Detected as "Sony" or generic LCD in Device Manager?

There is nothing to learn from someone who already agrees with you.

Unless there is a problem with the way the monitor saves settings (battery, or such) then I'd suspect it is just junky stuff.

The monitor is either too fast adjusting to the new settings or the video card is not providing stable settings fast enough.

Power down the system and all wall warts with a power strip when not in use. It will save energy and protect your system.

I read it wrong and answer it wrong too. So get off my case you peanut.

I have tried all of the suggestions above, with no resolution.

Have discovered a new problem. Sometimes, when the computer comes out of sleep, the monitor is very dark, difficult to see the desktop. Have found that rebooting does not help, only unplugging the monitor from power and computer cable gets it back to where it's supposed to be.

IS IT POSSIBLE that the "onboard video card" on the VIAO is just not appropriate for the 15" monitor? What could other possibilities be?

Any, ANY help here is muchly appreciated.
