Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor
I've been using my al1916w as a second monitor for my laptop without any issues.... Just switched From a Dell Inspiron to a Toshiba A100 and cannot get the monitor set up properly.
When I get full use of the monitor (1440 x 900), I am unable to view the entire desktop on my laptop (al1917w is wider than both the Dell & Toshiba screens, but It wasn't a problem with the Dell).
When I can see the entire desktop on my laptop, the image on the LCD is noticably stretched and there is a roughly 1.3inch black strip on bioth the top and bottom of the screen.
I know there is probably a VERY simple solution for this.... Please advise ;)
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.
