    I'm running vista. Right clicking on the desktop does not give me a properties screen. I went to control panel, device manager, monitors, but didn't see a way to make any changes.

Hi there
All you have to do is right click on the desktop, select "personalization" and then "display settings" this will allow you to change the aspect ratio to whatever you want and feel comfortable with

kind regards and Merry Christmas

Hello rbutch

You need to go into your OSD menu, the buttons should be on the side or top. I am not very familiar with this brand so if you need to know exactly what to do, please post what buttons you have since they are very similar between each other, but once you find them, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out otherwise. If for some reason, you don't have these buttons, then you need to go into your graphics card settings which can be selected by right clicking on the desktop and going to properties and then click on the settings tab to adjust. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Hi
Your entire desktop is probably stretched left to right.
You need to adjust the resolution of your computers video card in the display properties to one that the widescreen will accept correctly.
There is a chance that your video card may not have the correct resolutions available. If this is the case then you may be stuck with this view until you change coputers or video cards.
to get to display properties based on win2k or xp
Right click in the center of your desktop, choose properties, go to settings and there you should see the resolutions available. Try different ones till you find a good one, you may have to settle for one that is close to your monitors setup if the exact one isn't available.
If using a laptop with a standard screen with the wide monitor, you may need to disable the laptop screen and use just the monitor to get the correct resolution on the monitor.

Youtube on my vizio 470i tv is off centered


CHANGING THE SCREEN ASPECT RATIO: ( From Manual )
The TV can display images in four different modes: Wide, Zoom, Panoramic, and Normal. Each mode displays the picture differently. To change the screen aspect ratio:
1. Press the MENU button on the remote.
2. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight the Wide icon. Press OK.
3. Use the Arrow buttons to highlight your desired screen mode and press OK:
• Normal preserves the content's original aspect ratio. Since the 4:3 aspect ratio is not large enough to fill the TV's screen, black bars are added to the left and right of the display image.
• Wide stretches a 4:3 aspect ratio picture to the edges of the screen. Since the picture is being stretched, the display image may appear distorted. If the program is already formatted for widescreen viewing (1.85:1 or 2.35:1), then black bars will appear on the top and bottom of the display image.
• Zoom expands images with black bars to fit the screen.
• Panoramic expands the display image to fill the screen.
images may appear wider than intended.
If you are watching widescreen (1.85:1 or 2.35:1) content, black bars will still appear on the top and bottom of the display image. This option is only available when the TV is displaying a 480i/480p source.

How can I get full screen image without distortion on tv viewing? I only get 4:3, zoom, full and justified. Full looks stretched horizontally with tv, looks ok with dvd.


Hello
Most of the telivision transmissions are comes at an aspect ratio of 4:3. Wide aspect ratio is 16:9. If you try to see a picture with aspect ratio 4:3 to wide 16:9, it will look like stretched. it is not the fault of the tv. Most DVD recording have the aspect ratio of 16:9 [Wide]. This aspect ratio will be displayed correctly when your tv is also set to wide mode. If you select normal mode at this condition, the picture will be displayed elongated. Ok Your Tv has no probelm.

Acer 22 aspect circle, not elipse


You'll need to change your resolution to one of the below to get the correct aspect ratio for a wide-screen display.

1440 x 900
1600 x 900
1600 x 1024
1680 x 1050

You will find these settings in Control Panel / Display / Advanced. If none of the above are options you will need to obtain newer display drivers.

Please let me know if this helps or if I can be of further assistance. Thank you.

22'' LCD monitor aspect ratio is off.


Set resolution to the native 1680 x 1050. Then, using the buttons on the monitor, go into the monitor's menu. go down to "Image Setting", go to "HDMI Mode", then select "PC Mode". This should help everything fit on screen correctly.
