Question about Dell M570 15" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Stretched Image Just got a new monitor and now my images are all stretched sideways. Both monitors are Gateways but they are different shapes. Did I buy the wrong thing? If not, what can I do to correct the problem?

    Unfortunately that didn't help. On the side of this new monitor there's a menue... When you press it info is displayed on the screen. But there isn't any Select button (+) and no Adjust button (-). Now what??? (Btw, I tried every option with the menu and I can't figure it out.)



    Thank you for your help, though!

    If I could just find the word "resize" ANYWHERE I'd try it. I'm at a loss here. I will check the cable connection but I have a feeling I'm gonna hafta find a local geek! Thanks so much for your help, k.

The problem is just the monitor settings. To reset the monitor, just press the Select button (+) and Adjust button ( - ) on your monitor at the same time.

    Did you try adjusting the settings on the monitor..like resizing it? Also kindly check the cable connected from your monitor to the CPU. Check for broken pins..this will cause problems on the image.

Image stretched widthways


Hi
Depending upon your operating system: Right click on an open area of the background screen. The goto to settings or display settings. From here you're going to want to change the display resolution or display size to match your monitor. Experiment with the different sizes until you get the one that's right for you.

Image stretched


No offense, but if you're an IT ignoramus, you should know how to fix this. I see you said 2 monitors, did you see that you could've added display to the second monitor making it look out of proportion? A simple fix is either adjust resolution, disconnect second monitor, or you could do the hardest one, test every single component related to display until you find the problem. Good luck with the last one,if you come down to it.

Photographs do not look normal on this monitor.


this is not monitor dependent. It depends on the graphics software that you use, try to keep your proportions locked with your graphics software.

example when you want to increase the size of an image drag it from a corner and not from the side.

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

Acer AL2216WBD LCD Monitor Problem


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.

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.

Display appearing stretched


the original image size was probably recorded in 4:3 aspect ratio...meaning your widescreen is a 16:9 ratio size screen and is stretching it outwards to fill the whole screen. If you want the image to look normal.. ie. not short and fat people.... you need to change the picture size in the settings from widescreen 16:9 to normal 4:3 tv in the settings menu most likely...Also most remotes will/should have a button for that.
