When you are satisfied then click apply.

Hannspree 20" HF207 monitor display is too wide for the screen. I am running XP and the CD and website only have a driver for Vista. Is this a driver problem or a setting in XP? Please help, I already...


The drivers is not a problem for your case. If you can not select the 1600X900 resolution (this is the native resolution for your monitor) the problem is at your VGA; it does not support this resolution. What is brand / model is your VGA (or if you use the on board at the motherboard what brand / model is your motherboard)?

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Acer wide screen monitor 20'' font and images all


Right click on the desktop in a clear area and scroll down to either resolution or properties. From this you can experiment with resolution settings to see which setting best fits your display. After each setting change the computer will ask you if you want to accept the changes, it will give you 15 seconds for each change.

How do I adjust the 22 in. rectangular screen to prevent images from appearing wider than normal. For example, pictures of persons make them look fat and wide.


You can use any other image viewing software such as Picasa. It will open images at 100% size but you can change the size of images

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.

Acer widescreen extend sides when setting old resolution


You have entered the area between a rock and a hard place. The older games are not aware of the possibility of a wide screen. Either put up with the fat and large images or get a second 4X3 ratio monitor for your older games.
I do not know of any driver to do what you are asking.

Distorted images due to wide screen


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.

Display appearing stretched


the original image size was probably recorded in 4:3 aspect ratio...meaning your widescreen is a 16:9 ratio size screen and is stretching it outwards to fill the whole screen. If you want the image to look normal.. ie. not short and fat people.... you need to change the picture size in the settings from widescreen 16:9 to normal 4:3 tv in the settings menu most likely...Also most remotes will/should have a button for that.
