Last nite when I booted up my system, everything on the monitor is shifted to the left. I have used the buttons on the bottom of the moitor (menu, Lightview, <, Source/>, aoutoselect) to move the horizontal view, but the the images still do not center, and I cannot see the left edge of the images.
I am having the same problem --- just received this item an hour ago. This is not a total solution, but it is a workaround. I shifted the H position to as far right as it would go using the OSD. Even with the H pos at 100, the left 10-15% of the desktop was still shifted off the left side of the display. In this configuration, I was able to use the mouse to call up the "Start" menu, and I reached the control panel. I found that the monitor properly displays every resolution from the lowest offered, 800x600 up to 1600x900. It is only 1680x1050 that does not display properly.
So I am working around this problem by using 1600x900 while I try to find a fix for the 1680x1050. I'm thinking that this may call for a contact to the acer tech support people.

Re: horizontal view on screen will not re-center
You want to locate Position or Horiz Position from the Menu screen. Press menu first then Up or Down to select the item you want then Left or Right, I can't be more specific as all monitors are different - but there isn't a single button to center. You could also try the different input settings (Analog, Digital, etc) if the Autoselect isn't working properly.

there are several reasons why picture of crt monitors did not display good picture. if your monitor had horizontal line at the center of the screen?...the faulty is in the vertical deflection, check the vertical oscillator also the fusible resistors & capacitors around that section. if there had vertical line at the center of the screen?..check the horizontal deflection, horizontal output transistor also check the YOKE.
Press the OSD (On Screen Display) button on the monitor.
Use the UP/DOWN and LEFT/RIGHT buttons to navigate through the menu, to get to the "horizontal position" menu.
Press the OSD button to "select" that setting.
Press the LEFT/RIGHT buttons to "move" the image LEFT/RIGHT.
Press the OSD button to "apply" the new location.
Wait a few seconds, and the OSD menu should close itself.
if your lucky it's just your H-center is off tilt. to check this Press the menu button on your monitor. scroll through the options till you see Horizontal-center option. select this setting and move the screen to the left. The entire screen should start shifting to the left and fill in the screen. now if you do this and you get a black bar on the right. Center the screen where you have the same amount of black on both sides of the screen. scroll through your menu till you see the H-size. increasing this will fill in the black area. Hope this helps.
Since this is a CRT monitor, it doesn't have a native resolution like LCD monitors. You need to adjust the veritcal and horizontal sizes to fit the monitor. On the front of the monitor there are some menu buttons. You need to open the on-screen menu, then navigate to the Horizontal Size and Position menu, use the plus and minus buttons to grow and shrink the image. If it's not centered, use the Horizontal Position menu to move it around. Use this same system for the Vertical menu and you can get your image to fit your screen. By the way, you should have your operating system running with a white (or light colored screen) up when you do this so you can see all the edges of your desktop. The buttons are tricky, but they kinda make sense. Good Luck!
There's nothing wrong with the monitor. Monitors remember the settings for different video modes, including horizontal position. The video mode used when the splash screen displays is a size almost every monitor can handle. Then the mode switches to whatever you've set once Windows finishes startup. As long as the display is normal once Windows is running, you really don't need to be concerned.
If you want to correct the problem, you need to put the monitor into the same resolution and use its menu functions to adjust the size and position. Try pressing F8 when the machine boots to get into the Windows startup menu. This will probably also be shifted, so you can adjust the settings while the menu is being displayed.
Try setting the refresh rate to 60 Hz. (Maybe 75).
Is it xp?
Right click an empty part of the screen, properties, under monitor (I think; I'm on Vista) you can choose the refresh rate.
Most LCD's should be at 60 Hz.
