Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Sometimes when I change the settings profile from "User" to "Graphics," a black border appears on the screen and some of the viewing window is off the screen. Usually when I click the "Graphics" profile again a few times it fixes itself, but now, its stuck with a 1 inch black border on the right, a quarter-inch border on top, a thin one on the left, and the bottom of the screen is hiding some of the window (like most of the task bar). Its a black 19' Acer Monitor.

All LCD displays have an "Auto" button press it and see if that fixs it. should be aparent what it does if it does it. but basicly it alines the picture with the screen. when you change back to user profile you may need to press it again.

Windows 7 - adjust monitor screen??? using a 15" monitor and now have black space around picture.


Control Panel/Appearance and Personalization/Display/Adjust resolution. Try higher resolutions on the list.
If that doesn't do it I would go to Device Manager, and update driver for display adapter. May need to go to the manufacturers website
and Support Tab for drivers.

AOC i2353 has border around displayed image, not running at full 1920x1080res?


Had the same problem! Solve it: go to the AMD catalist and choose advanced look. then inside the digital display setting you'll see scalling option that will show 10% . Set it to 0%. Done!overscan.png

Sul monitor Acer AL1515 compare Input Not Supported


When a monitor displays "Input not supported", the display resolution is set too high. To resolve this, change the resolution to a supported resolution of the monitor. What you can do is restart your computer to safe mode first. These are the steps going into safe mode:

1. Make sure your computer is off.

2. Turn on computer then tap F8 repeatedly once per second. Similarly, Windows advanced options menu should be up on you screen.

3. use arrow keys to highlight "safe mode".

4. press enter twice.

5. log on to your user profile

6. you will get a window asking you to press "yes" or "no". CLICK the YES button.

7. perform the next steps below according to your windows version (operating system)

In Windows XP

  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.
  2. On the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider to the desired resolution and click Apply.
  3. When prompted to apply the settings, click OK. The screen will turn black for a moment.
  4. Once the screen resolution changes, confirm the change by selecting Yes. A timer will count down for 15 seconds to ensure the change is desired.
    Click Yes to confirm the change; click No or do nothing to revert to the previous setting.

In Windows Vista
  1. Press the Start button , select Control Panel, select Appearance and Personalization, select Personalization, and then Display Settings.
  2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the desired resolution and click Apply.
NOTE: For Windows 7, it should be similar to the steps for Windows Vista.

Screen is not centered horizontally. there is a 5 inch black border on the left side and screen runs off the right side.


hi this could be sorted by either changing the resolution in windows, just right click anywhere on the screen not on an icon, then go to properties ( or if vista or win7 personalize ) then click settings and in there check the resolution that is best suited for your monitor, it will automatically change the screen size for you and icon sizes to.... hope this helps

Monitor comes on for seconds and then goes black


This may be because the resolution that is set in your user profile when you log on has been changed to a resolution not supported by the monitor. The best way to fix this is by going into Safe Mode (press F8 as the computer starts to load Windows) and change it to a lower resolution once you get logged in. 1024X768 is a pretty safe resolution to start with. Then restart and see if that fixes the issue.

Black edges to individual lcd cells


Sounds to me like the screen is starting to go bad. Best way to find out though, try another known working monitor and see how that works. If the other monitor works well then you know the original monitor is the problem.

If the 2nd monitor gives you problems then you know its the video card thats bad at that point cause you would be having the same problem on both computers.

I have a black border on top of my screen


There are two things which could have caused this. One, the Monitor settings have changed or the computers display settings have changed.

1. Resetting the monitor to default.
Push the 'MENU' button to open the OnScreedDisplay system and display the main features menu. Push the - and + buttons to move between the function icons
Use the buttons to highlight 'Factory Reset' (this returns the settings to the factory preset values for the selected group of functions)
Detailed instruction available at http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/E153fpb/En/controls.htm

2. Checking the desktop display settings.
Right click on the desktop and select properties, click on settings and make sure screen resolution is set to one of the following 640 x 480 or 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768. These are the only ones supported by the monitor

If both this fails. Then the monitor is nearing end of life

There are three size settings you can choose from, Normal, Wide and Zoom. Try changing it using the 'Size' button on the remote or by going into the On Screen Display (OSD) settings. If you don't have a manual you can get one here. Hope this helps.
