Tue Jul 30, 2019 11:10 am

HELP!   I have a working monitor that i have been using with my raspberry  pi. Yesterday, i installed  usb mobile monitor  driver for rpi's so i can work on my pi somewhere  else then my office. When i rebooted the pi, the screen did not fit my monitor! The monitor has 2 inches of blackness on the right  side and everything is squished together.

I would check cmdline.txt and config.txt for any entries and comment them out.

I installed the driver (raspberryin.zip) off their website, so i did not enter anything into the terminal. Also, i just remembered i did not do sudo apt update before i insalled it.

P.S. config.txt?

as you did not mention WHAT monitor and Pi and OS your're using troubleshooting will be hard to impossible ...

The question the aBUGSworstnightmare asked is still valid.

NOOBS is not an Operating System. It is an OS installer and boot selector.

Are you running Raspbian (installed from NOOBS) or something else?

Is it the current Buster release or an old one like Stretch?

LG Is a manufacturer. That doesn't tell us which monitor you are using. Has it got a model number?

All of these details are important to give us information on how to help you.

I am using linux, and i can not find the monitor's modle number. I do not think the monitor is the problem, i think it is the HDMI output. Also, the monitor has no signal from pi part way through the boot. It is acting like the HDMI cable is not fully in, which happened and gave me the same problem i have now, but it was an easy fix. I already checked all the cables connecting the pi to the monitor.

What do you mean by "reset"?
What process needs "shift"?
What keyboard doesn't include a "shift"?

If you are referring to NoobS Recovery read the ReadMe:
