    Acer 22" monitor problem:
    I have tried adjusting the screen resolution. It is 1280x1024 (max). Graphics are still distorted.

    Acer 22" monitor distortion: None of the buttons on the monitor are for changing the aspect. I see others have the same problem. Changing the display settings in the control panel does not change the distortion. My graphics card came with the computer (HP).

    It says right in the Acer documentation that the resolution must be 1680 x 1050. The only way to achieve this is to replace the original card with one capable of that resolution. I now have a Radeon X1300 Pro installed, and it is graphics heaven!

You need to verify that you are using the monitors default resolution. if you attempt to use a resolution that the monitor can not handle it will cause distortion.
If you send me the model number I can assit you in finding the correct resolution for the monitor.

Every monitor has it's what's called "native" resolution. Which bacisally means it is the best it can do. If click on start>control panel>display properties, then find the slide for the resolution and move it all the way to the right. That is the native resolution for your monitor. You can try different resolutions by moving the scale up and down a little as the large screens scale back well. Also don't forget about the buttons on the front or side of the monitor that makes a difference alsol. There's other little things you can try like trying a new cable I've seen work in other threads for this problem who were using DVI. Let me know how it turns out.

There are three sets of adjustments available to you... the monitor settings accessed by the buttons on the monitor... find the right aspect ratio there... the others are within the operating system settings for your monitor and graphics card... rt click desktop and then properties and work with settings there under display and thirdly the graphics card may have software to tune and adjust many aspects of the visual experience of the monitor

How do I adjust the image width on this wide screen? Everything appears distorted and wider than it is. I would like a narrower image.


This is one of the problems with the wide aspect screen. Most images seem to fit best on the older monitors.
You can go into the video properties and choose one the the display types that best display your image. Unfortunately, by taking a normal (to us) image that looked just fine on an older monitor and displaying it on a newer, wide-aspect monitor, you're gonna distort the image or crop it in a way you didn't expect.
My advice is to experiment with the display until you find something you can live with.

Acer AL2216WBD LCD Monitor Problem


If your computer does not have a video card that supports the correct resolutions for the widescreen monitors, then your picture may get stretched. Much like watching normal tv programs on a an hd set. It will eitther strech or cut off the picture.
Try different settings in you computer display settings.

I have the same problem! Here's what I did: Go into the Display control panel, go to SETTINGS, click on ADVANCED, and then on the ADAPTER tab, then on LIST ALL MODES. There are several 1400 settings. Try them out and see which one is best for you.
