my monitor screen shifts to the left

Specs: Windows Vista
I have a 2009 Hp w2207 monitor and recently my screen shifts to the left, off and on when I'm using my computer, when i press the auto button on the monitor it will put it back in place for awhile. I know very little about computers, a friend mentioned going into device manager and seeing if my drivers are up to date, and it says it is, and my monitor is fine, i have allso clicked on factor reset. I know very little about computers, and have kids that use my computer, so i don't know if it is a setting or if something is going out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If the auto adjust is putting the screen back into place, then it probably not your monitor. First, do you have any discs that came with the monitor. If so, put them in and they should have monitor drivers on them. If not, it may be the video card on the computer that has a problem. Do you have a built in video card (Video Port is next to other ports) or an internal AGP/PCI (Card has one port by itself)? Respond soon.

Ask and Answer. The way of learning.

Thank you very munch for your response ! No my monitor did not come with a disk, I allso went online to Hp and looked for drivers, the reason being is that i did a diagnostic with this thing called Aero" I don't remember how i got there, but i think it was through Device Manager, and the report said that i need to update the driver for the video card with a WDDM compatible driver, so i went online to Hp a could not find anything. All so let me mention that around the time my monitor started acting up, I started to lose the Black bottom part of my screen, and the little icons at the right of my screen got rearranged, instead of being all horizontal they are stacked in rows of 3 vertically i have gone into task manager and tried to arrange the icons but they wont go to horizontal, i can allso pull up the bottom black part, but it takes up to much of my viewing screen. on the left side i can only see 1/2 of my start bot ton. Lol-Lol !! Any help on any of this would greatly appreciated Tks Stanby
