I tried going back several versions...even the original version. Here I'm using 2117 and its still not working - i.imgur.com/vzApp.jpg I even did a CLEAN install (you can do that by pressing F9 and going though the wipe process during boot).

I'm thinking about doing that, but I'm getting by by moving changing the start bar's height like this - i.imgur.com/vzApp.jpg

Bad update you say? Makes sense as this problem occurred after a Windows update I believe. This I will try and see if it works ... and boy do I hope it works because I've been using my workaround since this bug.

The only work around was to invert the screen by going to the Graphic settings and resizing the start bar (no-hide), so that it fills up the gap. I'm been doing that for a week now, and still haven't found a solution from the manufacturer service.asus.com/ProductCategory.aspx?pid=2

I found that odd too, but maybe that's because I didn't purchase the full version? Clearly its a hardware issue with the Monitor not properly being recognized. Using an external monitor works just fine btw. My guess is when I did one of the Windows Updates or SP1 perhaps, not sure, is when this problem started occuring. I was thinking of upgrading BIOS and other things like that, but really is a $257 netbook worth it? Now don't get me wrong, I want to know why and fix it, but its like putting gull wings on a dog sled.

Updated the Display adapter (Intel Graphic Media Accelerator 3150 to 8.14.10.2230 - the latest), and still nothing.

I think we're going on the right track here. I ran the PowerStrip utility and went to the monitor profile and noticed that I couldn't change the resolution beyond 1024x768. Clearly its the Monitor that isn't being detected. I tried to get my EDID info from the monitor but DDC wasn't enabled or supported. i.imgur.com/0d7TY.png So then I uninstalled the Monitor driver and installed the latest driver from Eee Asus's (version 14.10), website here: usa.asus.com/Eee/Eee_PC/Eee_PC_1015PE_Seashell/#download and still nothing.

The work around I have done so far is to rotate my desktop 180 degrees, resize the Menu bar and then rotate back. At least now when I maximize a window it won't go off screen. Still not a solution though. Looks like this: i.imgur.com/JeqQa.jpg

I'll try this utility and see if I can change my EDID profile for my monitor and get back to you. Thanks.
