Question about Acer AL1917W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Round things are shaped like eggs

I cannot find an adjustment to make round objects on my Acer AL1917W monitor look round. It's a simple request, but I have been looking at egg-shaped round items and stretched (horizontally) pictures for a month. Buttons on front of monitor are no help, and driver software offers no adjustments.

Can you help?

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!)

Adjust the video height on MAG lt716s computer monitor


don't worry overly, the shapes of things will be altered as you change the resolution. The main preset resolution s have different
aspect ratios

1920 x 1080 is 1.77/1

1600 x 1200 is 1.33/1


you change aspect ration according to your selected resolution.

Your monitor will have a native resolution at which everything looks normal, .......If you vary from that resolution things will obviously change.

Hi: I have a DELL SE198WFP monitor and Dell computer (running Vista). The problem is the picture on the monitor is elongated horizontally, meaning, round things have a "stretched" egg shape...


You need to set yuor PC Video resolution to the native resolution of this monitor for the correct aspect ratio and best picture; it should be 1440x900 @60Hz

Hi there,

Set the resolution to match the new screen.

In XP, Go to control panel, display, settings tab and change the screen resoution slider. If you have a regular shape screen (not widescreen) choose 1280 by 1024 pixels. If yours is a widescreen, choose 1280 by 768 pixels.
