i rebuild a lot of old machines too & have observed the same thing.
as best as i have been able to determine...
the problem has nothing to do with the operating system, so there is
no software which would help.

sometimes there are internal adjustments but due to the high voltage present
*even with the monitor unplugged* it's better not to fool with it

at any rate, even with a black border, those old monitors can still serve a
usful function
