Randomly adjusting display size

I have a new laptop (my first) - the little Acer 9 inch guy. I love it but every so often, when I'm using the tap pad or whatever you call it, my display size suddenly changes and I can't pin down what keystrokes I mistakenly did to cause it. I have experimented trying to MAKE it happen with no luck.

Any ides?

Acer V223W off center


it happened to me. I changed computers but that did not solve the problem so it's not the video card. what did help was I turned off the monitor to reboot it then, using a different computer I reset the resolution to the lowest possible setting. when the monitor adjusted to the new resolution it reset itself. I then set it back to the higher resolution and everything was centered again.

I have a Samsung NC10 notebook hooked up to an Acer x193w monitor and up until today it has been working perfectly. Now the display will not fill the monitor's space. Horizontal is fine but vertically the...


Do you have a spare computer to hook up to the monitor to see if the monitor's settings are off vertically?

Can you adjust the vertical size of the image of the monitor?

Are the letters squashed down vertically?

If the letters are squashed down vertically, did the setting for pixel size of the screen get adjusted to another size accidentally in the control panel under display settings?

Can you reset the Acer monitor from the menu?

Files appear too large on Acer monitor


If you just want to change the size of the font of the web pages you are visiting...all you have to do is hold down the CTRL key while tapping the + or the - key the will increase and decrease the font size.

To check the resolution just right click in an empty area of the desktop and scroll down to properties....you can play around with the resolution there....don't worry, you get 15 seconds to decide if you like the setting before it reverts back to the previous setting.

Large monitor has distorted display


try adjusting your system resolution to a largest one (as 1280 x 800), or using a DVI cable, if your monitor and video card supports it.

IBM R40 Screen Problems


I think you have an inverter board thats just about dead. It's located in the screens plastic housing at the bottom of the screen just above the keyboard. It's about 4 inches long and a half inch wide.There's just one little cable connecting it. But you have to take your screen apart to get to it. It's easy to replace and relatively inexpensive but it does require a little disassembly skill.
Also ,I will need the exact part number from the bottom of your laptop. There are several different R 40 models, and 2 different screen sizes.

It really depends on your experience you can find many deals. Personally I live view sonic for cost effectiveness and overall performace. I WOULD NOT buy an Acer the last Acer had a static splash screen that burned the dislay wit hte ACER logo on a server in a cabinet. The overall quality was poor on a few others we bought. 
I like new egg for my electronics here is a link to a very nice 21.5 inch  view sonic and compared to the Samsung 24 inch (the following link)  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824116396&utm_source=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.electroniccarpenter.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=ec1751pjv The Samsung link is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824001309&utm_source=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.electroniccarpenter.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=ec1751pjv
Personally I am a huge fan of the WUXGA display and is a 3 inch bigger display worth 100.00 to you? If  Ihad 300.00 to spend  I would by the samsung but if cost including shipping is the factor then I would get the ViewSonic.  I would choose one of these two monitors. Based on contrast ratio (great for gamming and video)
