I would assume you need to change your display's resolution. The easiest way is to right click on the background/desktop and choose properties. Choose the settings tab at the top of the window and move the lever to the far right. 1680x1050 would be best for a 22in. For I have a 22in myself. Nice ;]

you can change the monitor resolution settings by right clicking anywhere on your desktop, then click properties. Try changing the settings until you find one you like. If you pick a setting that your computer and/or monitor cannot do, it will reset to the last setting after a few seconds. When you find one you like, click ok. You can change these settings anytime you want.

My 19" flat-screen monitor distorts pictures and makes everyone look fatter than they are.


It sounds like you did not set your PC video resolution to the correct aspect ratio, you should set it to the native resolution of this monitor to get the best pictures.

I RECENTLY STARTED USING BENQ MONITOR & NOW I HAVE IRRITATION ON MY EYES. WILL THERE BE ANY RADIATION FROM BENQ MONITORS


There's practically no radiation from LCD monitors, especially compared to older CRT monitors, which radiated several sorts of electromagnetic waves.

Is the picture on your monitor crisp, with good focus? If the letters and shapes are blurry, it may mean that you are using a different screen resolution than the native resolution of your LCD.
If your monitor type is FP731, then it's native resolution is 1280x1024 and this is what should be set in the Display Properties under Settings tab (in Windows). If it's a different model, you can search for it's specs on the web to see what is it's native (a.k.a. optimum) resolution.

Please rate and possibly leave a testimonial if helped.

On screen resolution issues


Bought a new XGA projector.../

It appears from researching that the native res for the Benq is too low 800x600 so I will never get a good picture even though most of the images I install are at least 10meg originals. Also the new projector will work in a bright room the Benq will not.

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.

Round things are shaped like eggs


This is a widescreen monitor. To get the display to look right, you need to install the software that came with the monitor, and set the resolution to the manufacturer's recommended setting (the monitor's "native resolution"). I don't know what that is for the AL1917W. I have the AL1917, not the widescreen. A friend got a 21-inch widescreen and had the same trouble as you until we set it to the proper resolution. (And it looks great and I'm jealous!)

Distorted screen


Youre problem is because when a widescreen monitor is fed with a signal that is not ws it stretches the image sideways making people look short and fat. The only way to really fix this is to make sure the graphics card is providing a widescreen resolution to the monitor. In this case the native resolution (the resolution the screen looks best at) is 1680 x 1050 . If you right click ur desktop and go down to properties and settings u want to change the screen resolution to a widescreen res.

Hopefully 1680 x 1050 ... if this is unavailable try 1440 x 900

If you have an nvidia graphics card you can also go to the nvidia control panel and change the resolution attributes. If the widescreen res isnt available u could also try the 'change flat panel scaling' and select the do not scale option.

Please note before starting any of this make sure u have the latest graphics and monitor drivers available.
