Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook

1 Answer

Monitor settings Somehow the default monitor settings got changed. Now for any given application, most but not all of the page is displayed on the screen so I have to toggle left or right to see the full information on the page. THis also has the ffect of my not being able to use a projector for internet or powerpoint because only a portion of my wallpaper ends up being projected. Any suggestions?

    It seems that the system was designed for a regular 1024x768 screen display, but they put a wider type actual screen on it. Either everything is slightly distorted if you use the correct setting to make it all fit the screen (ok if you are only using text and WYSIWYG is not important,) or you have to use a wider display setting which is oversize to the actual display but corrects for the distortion so pictures and videos display properly. If there is a better video driver software, I could not find it.

Hi swalle1, it sounds like you display settings have been changed, to fix this when your computer has finished starting right click a space on the desktop where there are no icons, then click on properties, a pop up will appear, at the top you will see tabs choose the Settings tab, now in the middle of the screen to the left you will a box on the called screen resolution with a slider, place your mouse on the slider and slide it the left till it says 1024x768 then click apply, now this may not be the setting you use as you may have a wide screen but this is default setting to get you started, you can slide that slider till you get the right setting back either to the right for higher resolution or the left lower.
I hope this helps but if it does please let me know.

What is the best setting on adell 24


The issue is relative to the native resolution of the monitor. in most 24" monitors the resolution is 1920 x 1200. When you get an application that is shown in the upper left corner of the screen, it is most likely set in a page frame of 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768. Also many web pages will display with large amounts of white space on one or both sides.
This you can do to help.
Set the DPI setting in display properties to 120 will help some making small type more readable.
Pages that are in Internet Explorer can be zoomed to appear larger zoom feature in bottom right corner of IE window (or CTRL & + and CTRL & - key combinations)

Your display app controls that, try updating drivers/ software for graphics card on laptop.
Or press the monitor button (usually Fn + something) till it comes right

Frequency out of range


Try to set the monitor refresh rate to Adapter Default despite of Optimal or lower rate of refresh. For this first download the manual of your monitor and check what is the highest refresh rate your monitor can suport. Then goto the display properties and set the adapter refresh rate to Adapter Default. In most cases such problem is solved. You did not mentioned the OS. This method is applicable in Windows only.

Display area is "shrunken" on Dell Inspiron 4000 display


Go to Control Panel - Display - Settings - Advance - Monitor, set it to Default monitor and click OK.
Does the display now fill the screen?
If this doesn't work, go to the DELL WEB site and see if there a driver for the display. To ensure you get the correct driver for your model laptop, use the Service Tag number (which is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop) to the download page for your model laptop, download the correct Windows XP or Vista version of the driver from :-

I can't print in color


There are several possibilities here:

1) The default printer settings in your OS (operating system) were set to black only. If you are in windows, go to the windows control panel and choose the printers icon. Find your printer and modify the settings to allow color.

2) The application is overriding the default print settings. Look for something under the application's menu system like "File...Print Setup", or "File...Printer Settings" and change the print mode there to color.

3) The application's page setup is set to black or greyscale only. Look in the application's menu system for something like "File...Page Setup" or "Format...Page" and make sure it's not set to black only.

You will probably get better answers to your question by providing more info like what OS, or version of Windows you are using and what program you are trying to print from.
