Bloated Resolution

I know there is something wrong with my monitor, but I don't know what it is.

Ok, so hte issue is that my monitor keeps getting wider in the center

like from | | (where | | is normal and good) to ( ) and then it slowly recedes back into | |

it happens randomly though!

I have already ruled out the video card - at least I hope I did.
I plugged in a different monitor and I didn't see any bloating.

I can play DMC4, GTA4, and RE5 fine with no slowdown and no complaints from the video card.

Is my monitor basically on its way to the trash heap?

Try going to your graphics card settings and letting adjust the re-adjust the resolution from there, or let the graphics card software automatically adjust it to its native resolution for you.

Ah also, the gfx card is fine. I tried it on two different monitors.

Also IU noticed that on white screens, the screen viciously bloats (like now...)
and on black screen (like irc) it shrinks back to normal :(

depending on the model of monitor there could be a number of reasons for this fault. try smacking it around. this will confirm if a connection has come loose, it would be best to replace the monitor unless you're competent with repairing this type of equipment
