|Whenever I cursor to the right (say for scrolling a window), my cursor goes off the screen. Am constantly dragging my cursor back and forth to get it on scroll bars. Very annoying as I use only the touchpad.|
Seems the physical screen size is smaller than the actual (by some 30%, but only to the right, not left, up or down).
Tried changing resolution from 1280x768, x800 and even to to 1024x768, but no visible difference except that 1024x768 results in physical display size is narrower than the LCD screen. In all settings (even ensuring the adapter setting matches resolution setting), but still the cursor ranges off the right side of the screen. Driving me nuts trying to fix the stupid machine. My neighbor warned me about buying Sony.
How does one get the actual screen size to match the physical one?
If advise is to check something in BIO, I don't know how to even access it, let alone what to look for and try changing.
All I've ever done is change resolution size using display properties. No BIO changes knowingly made.
Seems like this cursor disappearing on right side of screen began after another issue cursed me. Somehow I lost my desktop (all my program shortcuts and even the desktop folders containing crytical files are gone).
That happened when I was trying to track down why the add/remove list's (four left side) icon's were missing their label, and I chose to (grrrr) 'let windows choose the best performance for my system'.
Discovered too late that the missing labels are simply a result of choosing either "brick" or "red, white & blue" color schemes (offered in Display Properties>Appearance). Guess I discovered a Windows bug which 'removes' the add/remove list's icon labels.
As for my disappearing cursor issue, the only differences I see in 'display properties' (from that seen on recent fresh install) is that "display:" (in "settings") used to read "1.(Multiple Monitors) on RADEON IGP 345M" and now I don't see any way to make it read that again. It now only offers "1. Sony Notebook LCD (1280x800) on RADEON IGP 345M" or "Default Monitor on RADEON IGP 345M".
I've checked the display properties, settings, advanced, adapter (still same as original),
