Acer AL2216WBD LCD Monitor Problem

Just got it, the screen image seems distorted or 'stretched' horizontally.
Squares appear as rectangles...longer Left to Right. Is this just a simple horizontal adjustment?

    I have the same monitor hooked up to an IBM thinkpad T42, and see the same stretched problem, do you have an older computer too?

If your computer does not have a video card that supports the correct resolutions for the widescreen monitors, then your picture may get stretched. Much like watching normal tv programs on a an hd set. It will eitther strech or cut off the picture.
Try different settings in you computer display settings.

Everything is distorted and elongated


You need to set the PC video resolution to the native resolution of this monitor, 1920 x 1080 @ 60Hz for best picture and correct aspect ratio.

You may have to load the driver if you cannot get the PC the let you select this resolution.

Screen stretched out horizontally and distorting picture. None of the settings buttons appear to solve this. I can shift the image vertically or horizontally; but not squeeze it horizontally.


There are adjustments in the size of the items on a screen under the screen properties, settings. If you right click on the desktop screen and then properties you can get there. There is at least one size which causes a distortion of images being displayed. This may be your problem.

The screen is stretched there is nothing distorted


What kind of monitor? They can all be adjusted for width and height by using the buttons along the bottom of the screen. Often it can be confusing and a bit of a pain but look under the monitor menu for 2 sets of icons that look like 2 boxes on top of each other both horizontal and vertical. That is how you adjust it.

Acer P193W monitor stretched image


What service pack of windows xp are you running? Also, do you have your old monitor, if so, then plug it in and see if the same problem occurs. If not , go under the settings for your graphics card (not windows display options) and see if there can be a correction made to the settings for your monitor. Also, try going to microsoft.com and updating your computer (it's free) and you'll probably get the required driver to fix the problem from them. Check under your control panel and see if you have automatic updates turned on, if so you may want to limit what updates are to be installed by allowing updates but you choose which one's to install. Hope I could help. My e-mail

Check your video card drivers are installed correctly.
If unsure, the reinstall them again, it won't hurt the system and there are probably new drivers out for it anyway.

Acer Monitor Display of text and image is not sharp


This might seem obvious, but is your video card output set to the native resolution on the monitor? If not, it will look fuzzy. Try 1680x1050, if you don't know the monitors native resolution.
No need to use anything higher than a 60hz refresh rate either.

Screen image display distortion


Hello.
What you are reporting is a problem in the pincushion circuit in the horizontal section of your CRT monitor. Usually this is from an electrolytic capacitor that is no longer willing to play nice with all the other components.
It is repairable, but get an estimate first. If the repair bill appears to be around $100, you would be better off to put a few more dollars with that and buy an LCD TFT monitor.
If you are quoted $25 or $30, it is probably worth having repaired. Just keep in mind that these older CRT monitors have age on their components, and once repaired, it will still be an old monitor.
Only you can decide which choice is right for you. At least now you have a few facts to help make the decision.
I hope this helps.
