OS 10.4 - Problem with the display

I am a beginner with MAc, please bear with me.
My Computer (PowerMac G5 OS X 10.4 / OS X 10.4.6) is behaving very strangely.
The Samsung Digital Sync-Master display 'floats' and 'moves' together with the movements of my mouse in all directions. The only way I can describe it is that it looks as if everything on the display has 'lost its anchor'.
Text and icons have grown very large and the visual quality is awful; Changing the definition does nothing.
I have run the extended (nearly two hours) Hardware Diagnostics: No problem was found.
I have run the (First Aid) Permissions/Disc repair, restarted the Mac,
un-plugged and re-plugged the Mac from/to the electricity outlet.
Then, un-plugged and re-plugged the Digital display, switched to an Analogue display,the same thing happens with the Analogue Display.
Moving to trash all the recently installed software didn't help either.
I am desperate and please need 'dummy style' step-by-step instructions.
Please can anyone help me?
Sally

Well, although I'm not sure, it kind of seems like your zoomed in using Universal Access.

Hit Command+Option+8 and see if it stops.

This is just the first thing I can think of for right now.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

Wow!
Thank you so much.
This certainly helped and now the display is rock solid.
Sincerely,

Hey, no problem.

This is a utility for people with bad eye sight that allows them to zoom in on the display. You turn it on/off with Command+Option+8 and zoom in/out with Command+Option+(plus)/(minus).

Welcome to the Forums! :mac:
