Upgrade to ARC Pro

Your robot can be more than a simple automated machine with the power of ARC Pro!


So what's the problem? Did you re-boot and then re-load your project?... Unless you forgot to save it.... ooops :P


i did reboo pc and check.its avery wher like this.also when i open google i can see half buttons


it looks like maybe the monitor needs to be set to the proper resolution for your computer or something. If the screenshot gives you the entire image, the computer thinks that it is displaying that image. I would start with the monitor and then look at the resolution settings on the computer if you cant get it.


Geez Patrick you have so much trouble with electronics... Are you sure you don't have a Gypsy curse or something....:) Did you auto arrange your controls?


I was about to say that about the monitor... @d.cochran good observation


May I suggest an uninterruptible power supply. This way, you have a certain amount of time to power down your unit and it runs your computer with the lights out.


d-cohran i check the resolution,it still stands like it always has bin. thank you d-cohran

RR i notest your answers are not so friendly as in the begin. is something wrong here ?

thank you moviemaker


Set the resolution lower and see if the image shows up. You can then reset it back to see if the monitor will get back in sync with the computer. Also, your monitor possibly has settings apart from your computer, is there a large black area on the left side of the screen compared to the right side of the screen?


no only a little black line appear below under taskbar


If you launch notepad, you have the same issue in that application, correct?


i set resolution lower ,then i have this.

thank you RR User-inserted image

d-cohran your wright same in notepad


set your resolution back.
If you launch notepad, you have the same issue in that application, correct? what is the brand and model of your monitor? I will see if there is a resync or auto picture adjustment in the menu or anything like that.


do you know the model number of the HP? I am going to look online for the menu options.


d-cohran your life saver .yes it has auto adjust the monitor


it just comes from about 25 years of IT work...

Thanks for the compliment though. Glad I could have helped.
