Automatic Full Screen View

I just got a new 22" Acer monitor and when I click on a video, using either Windows Media Player or WinAmp, the screen automatically goes to full screen view and I cannot get out of the screen without manually shutting down the computer.

How do I load songs from my computer to my mp3 player? Also, how do I delete songs from my mp3 player?

Copy the songs from their location and paste them in your MP3s drive.
Or better yet use the windows media player/winamp to sync.
you can delete them the same way you add them.
use the windows explorer or windows media player/winamp

Not able to use full screen

This sounds like bad resolution is set on your computer. The LG 22" FLATRON monitor has a native resolution of 1680 x 1050. However, your video card may not support this so you can also try any other 16:10 resolution like 1440 x 900.

To change your resolution in Windows XP:
1. Access the Control Panel.
2. Choose "Display".
3. Click the "Settings" tab.
4. Under "Screen resolution" move the slider to a 16:10 resolution like 1680 x 1050 or 1440 x 900.

If you computer does not support higher resolutions, you may consider replacing your video card to take full advantage of your nice 22" Flatron monitor.

If I can further assist you, please let me know.

Advent 5431 laptop,changed screen and inverter..problem is screen is mashed up ie cant see anythink at all only when connect to external monitor when i view both screen laptop and external its like the...

It might be a bad connection on the cable supplying the screen.
It can't be the graphics driver as the brightness is controlled by the screen and invertor speeds.
If the connections are OK, I think you have a faulty panel as if you turn the brightness up the picture goes weird making me think the screen is faulty as the processing of brightness and contrast etc is carried out within the screen itself..

Try this.

Disable hardware accelerating on your adobe flash player Settings.

Can be done by Right Clicking the Video and selecting settings

Then uncheck the hardware accleration. Then see if you can play in full screen.

Video card freezing display & rebooting when full screen video used. Cannot use Media player full screen as well as any full screen video.


Go into device manager and uninstall your video card, if it prompts to delete installed drivers put a tick in the box and click ok.

Now restart your laptop, the display drivers will be re-installed again, now go to Acer support and download the latest device drivers for your model.

If that doesn't sort it out, check for a bios update at Acer support.

If that doesn't sort it, you have a defective video board, if its intergrated onto the mainboard you will need a complete new mainboard, if its a dedicated video board you only have to get a new one.
