Re: monitor

On the monitor there should be an auto adjust button. Press that and it will adjust to your windows desktop.

Right-mouse click anywhere on your desktop "wallpaper".
Click Properties.
Click Settings.
Change the resolution to 800-by-600.
Click Apply, to see if the screen is "filled" by the Windows desktop.
Then, try 1024-by-768.
Then, try 1280-by-1024.
Pick the "best' one.

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.

Monitor screen display stretched center but squashed/narrow edges

On the monitor itself, I am guessing this is a desktop? There are buttons for adjustment. Look for the menu button around the bezel of the monitor and press it. Scroll through the settings for the default setting and press that. Once the default settings are made for the monitor, then you can go to the graphics settings available through windows to get the resolution straightened out.

Windows doesn't know your display is broken as it see's your display adapter for the laptop. By adding the monitor windows is adding a second display to the one you don't actually have, your icons and start bar are still on display 1

External Monitor

No. This is almost certainly a setting issue. Go in to the control panels and change the way the monitor is used. I.E. extension desktop, mirror, etc. Then check the settings for the second monitor and make sure it is not set to some huge size or resolution. This is a function of the MacBook and OSX. I had a similar issue when connecting it to a 71" DLP.

No Signal

Probably the settings on the computer graphics card output.
You need to selct the external screen.

Just to be sure it's not a screen fault, are you able to test it on another PC (desktop, not laptop)?

Problem in monitor the screen doesnot get full wide of it by control panel

Assuming your running Windows as the operating system on your computer, go into Display Properties and set the refresh rate to something other than 60 hz or default. On my XP computer this can be done by right clicking on the desktop, clicking Properties -> Settings -> Advanced -> Monitor. Anything in the 70, 72, or 75 hz range should work fine. If this does not fix the problem and the monitor is out of warranty trash it and get another one.
