    Off Centered XP Boot Logo?

    Everything works 100% on my carputer I finished installing this weekend, but for some crazy reason my XP logo is cut off at the top of the screen. After that is finished and windows finishes booting, everything else is just like it's suppose to be. I've searched on here to no avail, but does any happen to know the cause of this? Even though it's minor it's bugging me because it's the only thing that isn't like it should be.

    Thanks!!

    Most likely the lower resolution of the bootsceen causing you display to incorrectly sync to the signal.

    If you can;t find a hardware solution, just look at replacing the boot logo with a all black image.

    Makes sense to me. I'm going to play with the BIOS and see if anything's there as well as my lilliput's options to see what I can find out. it's a typical 629 lilliput so shouldn't be any issues for that, but ya never know! That's a good idea for a worst case and black it out, though it'd be nice to put my own logo there which is what I was planning on doing once it was up and running fine. Gotta be something simple or so I hope!!

    The monitor auto-synced off centered on that resolution because it couldn't find the edges of the black screen. Try to figure out what resolution that booting screen is using and then set windows to that resolution and then proceed to center the screen using the monitor's menu. You can now switch back to the resolution of your likeing. On next reboot, the monitor should keep the settings for that resolution.

    I got same problem with my Xenarc. My bios screen, boot screen and welcome screen jumping from left to center trying to set resolution. Xenarc shows resolution and frequency and looks like each screen got different settings. I have no idea how to change it.

    It's because of the black background, the screen can't find the edge of the picture. Set your windows resolution to the same settings you see for your boot screens, then center your picture using the monitors menu. Do this while on your desktop. Then you can switch back to your desired resolution. Your monitor should remember the settings for the next time it uses that resolution.

    I have yet to do mine as I haven't pulled the computer/monitor out of the car yet to have access to my monitor buttons. I'm going to try to swap resolutions on my monitor while in the car and hopefully it'll be good and won't have to worry about the buttons. Thanks!

    I'm having the same problem, but also am having another problem that I wonder if is related to resolution issues. Many times (mainly after a cold boot) when windows loads the screen goes blank and I have to shutdown (to standby) and wake up (from standby) for the screen to show. Before the screen goes out, I see the bios screens just fine as well as the windows logo screen. When the resolution typically changes for the windows GUI is when I typically get the black screen. Do any of you guys have this problem also? I'm just wondering if this is related to my cut-off windows boot screen like you guys are talking about.
