    When you installed the driver for your video card, did it include any 
utilities?  These are sometimes installed right along with the driver, so 
their presence isn't necessarily known during the install.  You can usually 
find out by looking at the last tabs in the Display Properties > Settings 
tab > Advanced button property sheet.  I also can get to mine by clicking on 
a line it added to my desktop's right click context menu.  If yours has 
something like this, there should be a control like the one you're wishing 
was included on the monitor itself.

    Still, an LCD monitor should not ever experience tracking problems.  My 
advice would be to download a new copy of the latest video driver, uninstall 
the existing driver, reboot (very important) and try installing it again.
