Re: 1440 x 900 setting for monitor means I can't see my...
Not all laptops display adapters will allow the individual settings for a screen and a monitor to take effect correctly.
This happens especially when one is a widescreen and the other is a standard screen.
It seems your settings are taking effect on both screens at once instead of on each screen individually.
I assume you have adjusted te display sizes in your display settings ?
If so, did you adjust each display separately ?
You may also have to see if your display adapter has the most correct drivers. That may help.

What is your refresh rate set to? At the desktop, with no windows open, right click the mouse and a dialog window will open. Click on properties, then the settings tab at the top, then another window will open. Click on monitor then at the bottom of the new window click on advanced. Check the refresh rate and change it to a lower rate and see what happens. You might even raise it. I hope this helps.
You can hook up any brand of monitor to your Acer laptop.
The only thing you may have to check for is that the connector on the back of the Acer (and all laptops for that matter) is a VGA type. This is the older style of monitor connector. Some new monitors come with a HDMI connector. All you need to do is buy an adaper, put that on the end of the cable and plug it in.
When you get the monitor plugged into the laptop and powered up then you will need to go into you display setting and check to see the external monitor is detected and how you want to use it. You can extend your desktop ie make you screen size cover or use both monitors. You can also set it to put your desktop out to the monitor and perhaps one or two other options depending on your laptop model. Once you have it setup it should use those setting automatically the next time you plug a monitor in.
You need to click "Right Button" on your desktop then click on "Properties" then click on "Desktop" then you can select any image on you desktop.....second thing ....if you want to change your appearance setting ..you need to click on "Appearance" you can select any option which one you want....
Have you used the Fn button on your laptop and changed the video display Icon on the Blue Function keys. You need to change the display wait a few seconds for it to take affect. There are several modes try them all so you know how to use them.
What is happening is the settings that you have set on your laptop are too high for the monitor to recognize.
You will need to reduce the resolution settings in you display
properties which can be found by going to start-settings-control panel-
display- and in the display area choose settings.
Some video cards will let you adjust each item. Some you have to use the same resolution on both screens.
Shout if you need furthur input !
Most likely the resolution of your desktop has and aspect ratio that in incorrect for your monitor. The native resolution of that monitor if 1440x900. Use the Windows (if using windows) desktop properties to set the desktop resolution to 1440x900.
What do you mean by it takes awhile to come on? Sometimes with these monitors depending on the type you have it takes time for the PC to pick up the signal. I have my PC hooked up to a KVM switch and it takes about 10 to 20 seconds for my monitors signal to be recognized.
