I just connected an old apple monitor to my old mac mini.
The display is off-center (up and to the right), with no apparent way to adjust it.
Is it an old CRT monitor, with buttons on the front, to allow you to select onscreen menus?
If so, it's an analog monitor, and there should be:
"Position" option: up/down/left/right?
and even "Size": width/height?
calling it "old" was a mistake, it is actually quite new, but "used". It is a flat screen. No menu options or buttons, other than brightness.
