    media engine resolution issue?

    I just got my screen today from dscustoms, and i went to install Media Engine on it. Its running in 800x600 right now, and when i run ME, its like the program is much larger than the screen size. The bottom and the right hand side is cut off. I have a picture of how it looks.


    Am i just missing a setting to fix this? I have it set on 4:3 ratio, 16:9 does the same thing.

    Looks like your horizontal adjustment on the monitor is off.

    But in adjusting that, wouldnt that move the power button out of the correct spot? it seems like its set to run at 1024xwhatever instead of 800.

    Check the horizontal picture adjustment just to see what it does. Now that I looked at the picture you provided again; I noticed the power button is NOT in the corner like it should be, it's way off. Now I'm even more confident that it might be the horizontal picture adjustment on the monitor. You might also adjust the vertical too. Does the Gain monitors come with those buttons?

    If that does not work:

    Run it at 1024 X 768 or what ever the resolution is.

    If that does not work:

    You might have a bad monitor driver uninstall it and reboot and reinstall it again.

    Ok, ran that resolution, same think.
    I tried the horisontal adj and vert adj, and it moves all right, but what you see is the only thing there! when i move it, i get a black bar to the right and bottom...

    When i use the video player to watch a movie, its at the very bottom, and about 1-2 inches is missing to the right hand side, its off the screen.

    Ill try that monitor thing, maybe that will fix it

    Does it only do this in ME or does every program look like that?

    Ask DSCustoms maybe he can help you further.

    What OS are you running?

    Many people in the forum are using the same monitor and Epia M 9000, I haven't heard of this problem before.

    I have the Epia M 9000, but not that monitor. I might be getting it soon.
