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.

Acer s211 HL monitor, blibks like crazy and cant see video on full screen display, but works in small window format. Can not seem to download drivers from acer? Is it my drivers?

First check the resolution and refresh rate for your video graphics adapter. LCDs are apt to blink when not at 60 Hz. (Recently I had another client with that issue.) For Windows 7, right click on the desktop and choose Screen Resolution. Click on Advanced Settings and the Monitor tab. (Other versions of Windows will have this in a similar area or Control Panel > System > Display in some combination. Mac and Unix have this setting somewhere as well.) Also make sure that you are set for the native resolution or one supported by both the monitor and the graphics adapter.

Next check the temperature of the system. Improve the cooling of the system if the graphics card is overheating.

I hope this helps.

(who had the entire computer shut down when the graphics card overheated using full-screen video for on-line video. That was a major heat issue that had the CPU heat up too.)

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.

My acer monitor will not play videos in full screen. The resolution is set at 1440x900. When i try to put it into full screen, there is a white screen but you can still hear the video.

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.

Acer 22 in monitor

From what you say, I'll assume you see stuff on the monitor like the BIOS info,and the Windows splash screen. Then it goes black.
This happens when Windows loads the video drivers for your video card. Up until that point, you are using generic VGA drivers. I would guess the drivers are corrupt and the video card just stops working when it tries to access them.
You'll need new drivers for your card (you'll need to determine that--you can ask me directly by clicking on my name if you need help there). Then you'll need to start your computer in safe mode and remove the video card from the device manager. Depending on the directions you have for your video card, you may have to tell the computer not to install drivers when you restart your computer, but run the install program first.
