A message tells me that my resolution should be 1680x1050

Right click anywhere on the desktop and select personalize.
When the new window opens, click on Display Settings, and set the Resolution and Color Depth you want.

What is resolution setting


You can find your resolution setting in the display options. In Windows XP: Right click on a blank area (no icons) on the desktop and go to Properties. Click the "Advanced" tab and your resolution will be on a slider about halfway down the window.

In Windows 7: Right click any area on the desktop (just like XP), but then click on "Display Resolution". Your resolution will be in a drop-down box in the middle of the window.

Another way to find it is to go to the control panel and open the Display Properties dialog in there, then search for it that way (using XP directions).

I cannot get good resolution in my Hannspree HF229H, what can I do???


The resolution you should be getting is 1680x1050. Under Windows 7, right click on your desktop then open 'Screen Resolution'. If the resolution is set to anything other than 1680x1050, set it to that. If that setting is not available then it is possible that your video card does not support that resolution. This would only effect old computers. If the resolution is set to 1680x1050 but you don't have the proper resolution onscreen, try adjusting the monitor settings using the buttons on the bottom of your monitor. Hope this help and have a nice day!

Desktop display smaller than screen


1) Right click on your desktop.
2) Select Properties at the bottom of the popup menu. This will open the Display Properties window.
3) Click on the Settings tab (it's to the top right)
4) At the bottom left there is a Screen resolution heading with a slider bar beneath it.
5) Slide this bar to the left and right until you find the resolution you like.

Sliding the bar to the left = lower resolution, larger desktop icons and less quality.
Sliding the bar to the right = higher resolution, smaller desktop icons and better quality.

If your screen goes blank after you click Apply then immediately hold down the Enter key.

If this doesn't work then it just maybe the case that you need to set the auto screen fit function on the monitor itself using the buttons provided on the monitor.

Width and height ratio


You need to set your PC video output resolution to the native resolution of this monitor, which is 1680X1050 @60Hz.
Right click on the desk top, the display properties will come up, click on setting tab, then you will see resolution setting choice.

The pictures are too wide all people look fat


You most likely have a wide screen and the screen resolution needs to be adjusted to suit the monitor.
Go to the Control Panel - Display and adjust the screen resolution until you get a normal image and correct screen aspect screen ratio. Start with a screen resolution of 1024X768 and gradually increase it until you get an image that suits your screen.

I had to reinstall my Viewsonic monitor after getting a new hard drive. Now the screen shows everything is a horizontal stretched mode. How do I get it to normal aspect ratio?


It seems like the display resolution was not set to the optimal resolution for your monitor.

To correct this, follow this guide. I am assuming you have Windows XP.

1) Navigate to the Control Panel in Microsoft Windows by left-clicking on Start, followed by Settings and then choosing Control Panel.

2) In the Control Panel window, open Display.

Note:
In Microsoft Windows XP, depending on how your operating system is setup, you may not see the Display icon. To correct this, click on the link on the left-hand side of the Control Panel window that says Switch to Classic View.

3) In the Display Properties window, click on the Settings tab.

4) Slide the Screen resolution slider all the way to the right for your optimal resolution.

5) Click the OK or Apply button to confirm the changes. If prompted, follow any additional on screen directions.

NOTE: If the text appears too small, go back to step 4 and try a different position on the slider until you get it how you like it.

Good luck on solving your computer problem.

Hooking up a second ACER monitor as an extended desktop


I have 2 acer AL2016W's and have the same problem. The earlier ones with the VGA only are the problem from what I can see, they just don't play nicely with the video card for some reason.
First, on your main monitor, click "Show displays in menu bar" on your monitor control panel. This will let you set the resolution for each monitor from the main one, click on the little monitor icon on the top right screen to do this. 
If that doesn't work try this:
Connect one acer as the main monitor and one crappy vga crt monitor as the second.
Set mirrored desktop in the system preferences so that the crappy CRT is displaying the exact same resolution as the acer. (1680x1050 59.9Hz)
Disable mirrored desktop. You should now have an acer and a crappy CRT both running 1680x1050 in extended desktop mode.
Shut down, reconnect the acer in place of the crappy CRT.
This should "trick" your video card into having the right resolution, otherwise you'll just get the stupid "input not supported" screen, with no ability to auto configure or use any of the built in controls.
