    Have you checked the refresh rates on your video card?

    New monitor or used ?? Did you check in the screen menu to see if there is a movie or gaming mode ?

    Some of these newer larger monitors offer that feature.

HI
This may not help, but you can try to lower the resloution to another widescreen format.
I'm thinking you may have your resolution maxed out and the video card is having problems with the movie games because of that. Possibly not enough video memory
Movies will work fine at lower resolutions, Not sure about all the games but they probably will too.

When I play dvds or watch videos on youtube the screen has a black border on both sides reducing the size of the screen


If you hit full screen on the youtube video and its not full screen, then it sounds like your monitor resolution is to low.

Rt click on a place on your screen and pick screen resolution, then pick resolution and increase it.

The first number is width, so say it's on 800x600 then go 1024x768

Usb to watch movies on television


You need some sort of computer to watch a movie through the media station of the L2320A. The USB ports on the unit are a USB hub (one connection to the computer, two for devices); without a computer they are useless. Some of the media players (DVD/Blue-ray/media streaming units) that can play a movie from a USB drive without additional computing power. The format of the movie on the drive will limit which device can play the movie.

I wish that I had better news for you. Retrevo has a link to the manual for the L2320A here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/LG-L2320A-Monitors-manual/id/440ci363/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to access the file.

Your screen's ratio is oriented to playing wide screen formatted movies. Set your screen resolution to a ratio that's more or less 2 to 1 and you'll have a more realistic depiction of people on photos.

Input not supported when trying to play a game


the game will need to be set to the same screen resolution as your monitor or the best that suits, beccause of it being widescreen, so look in the graphic or video settings in the game, or change the resolution of your monitor to suit the games highest setting. This is done by right clicking on your desktop, down to properties and then the settings tab in the next window and then move the slider at the screen resolution box.
