    Help fixing screen

    I am running a fresh install of ubuntu 12.04, and my screen looks like this:



    How do I fix this, so I can see the top bar, and the side bar fully?

    Can you provide a bit more info - laptop? PC? Monitor type? HDMI connection etc

    A closer look at the image shows it to be a free standing monitor - get into setup via the monitor controls and adjust the image - you might have to dive down a few menus

    Hi. Sorry for the late reply. Was out of town.

    Do you mean the settings on the OS, or the monitor? It's a 32 inch Philips LCD tv, and its a desktop pc, with HDMI connection.

    What is the tv's resolution? 1080 or 720?

    I meant on the TV - I had to adjust the width to centre the frame - you can access a number of controls via the menu buttons on the TV itself or on its controller. I went "menu" "picture" "screen" "position"

    Sorry for the late reply. I answered via my cell phone, but I am guessing it never went through.

    I was able to fix this issue, by updating my graphics driver.

    Thanks for the help.
