Question about HP L1702 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Why can't I change to native resolution?

For some reason I cannot change my monitors resolution up to 1280 x 1024 resolution, which is supposed to be native.  I have tried in Ubuntu and Vista.  For some reason in both OSs, it shows that it is a Lite-on monitor and is only capable of 1024 x 768.  Can a monitor somehow break and not allow me to go to full resolution, or is there just a button I need to push?

Adjust the video height on MAG lt716s computer monitor


don't worry overly, the shapes of things will be altered as you change the resolution. The main preset resolution s have different
aspect ratios

1920 x 1080 is 1.77/1

1600 x 1200 is 1.33/1


you change aspect ration according to your selected resolution.

Your monitor will have a native resolution at which everything looks normal, .......If you vary from that resolution things will obviously change.

You need to set your PC video resolution to the native resolution of this monitor, which is 1440x900 @60Hz. Mkae sure to to have correct video card driver installed and may also need the driver for this monitor if the native resolution is not listed.

My Viewsonic VG2230wm refuses to use its native resolution of 1680 x 1050. Whenever I select this resolution, it registers on the computer display settings, but when I check on the monitor display panel...


You will need to adjust your monitor settings in the NVidia control panel. You can get to this by right clicking somewhere in a blank spot on your desktop and then selecting it from the menu. You will want to go into the Display section. If you aren't able to see that section, change from "Standard" to "Advanced" settings at the top of the screen.

My LCD s dose not match with its native resolution


Well, how would you like us to help? I suppose the only way to getting the native resolution to match is by buying the same or similar monitor.

Native resolution suddenly scrolls.


The native resolution for the Acer AL2216W is 1600X1200. It is acting correctly for the resolution you have set it to.

How can I make fonts look good in an LCD monitor ?


The VGA connection should be fine; I have DVI and when I switched from analog, the difference was pretty minimal, to my eyes.

Is it just the fonts that are blurry, or everything? If fonts only, then this almost certainly suggests that running the ClearType tuner again would solve the problem. But this applies to all displays, so if one is good and the other is not, then this isn't it.

If everything is a little blurry, then this suggests one of two problems -- the first, you report trying, which is that the display adapter is set to a different resolution than the native resolution of the LCD monitor itself. Your display adapter should probably be able to drive 2 monitors (the built-in laptop monitor and the external monitor) at once. You should be able to set their resolutions separately.

Assuming Windows XP: Start > Control Panel > Display > Settings > at which point, you should see two monitors listed in a dropdown. Set them to their native resolutions there (using the slider bar, usually all the way to the right), and save.

If you do have the display resolutions set to their native resolutions for both monitors, then it's possible that your external monitor is messed up. A quick test would be to run the on-screen settings, usually from a button on the monitor itself. If what is displayed there is sharp and what is displayed from Windows is not, then this points to a problem with the display driver. If everything, even the on-screen display is blurry, then perhaps the monitor settings are messed up -- usually there's an option to restore to factory settings -- try that.

If that doesn't work, I'm probably out of ideas, unless you have further information.

Resolution of the text


What is the resolution that you are running the monitor at? There are two possible reasons that come to my mind.

1. You are running at a non native resolution. Based on your LCD spec you should run it at 1280x1024 resolution to have very sharp text as you normally expect from LCD's. However if you have set another resolution (say 1024x768) the text is blurred and this is a known issue with LCD's, which unlike a normal CRT monitor will get blurred running at any other resolution :(
2. You have not installed the monitor driver, hence again this limits your resolution and windows only allows you to select a resolution that is non-native (Meaning since the driver file is not there the operating system may not allow selecting the native resolution the monitor should run at). You can find the driver file at the samsung site. Its a common driver file for all LCDs.
