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

Use the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the screen, if not there reset your screen setting to a higher resolution.

I bought a new desktop to use with my old screen. Now for some reason the image is a little wider than the screen. Vertically everything is OK. This happens both under Windows and Linux.


Probably the new pc was setup to use a wide screen monitor, which you did not buy.
You need to adjust the resolution to match your existing monitor.
Win XP -right click on the desktop and choose properties (or Graphis Properties. same for Vista or 7). Then choose settings. This will allow to choose your res. Try 1024 X 1260 first. Click apply..
If anything goes wrong, just wait 15 seconds and it will return back automatically. You have to click "accept" to save the change. Don't know about Linux.

Hello, I'm not sure about the system or monitor that you're using, but usually for Windows systems, you have to change the display within the system before the screen will actually show on the monitor through something other than the standard display port. If you reply with your OS, then I might be of more help, but assuming you have Windows 7, you must plug the hdmi cord in, right-click on the desktop, and select Screen Resolution. Then select the option (likely "HDMI") under Display that you are currently not using. At this point, your current screen will most likely go black. Switch you monitor to hdmi mode, and then you should be able to use your monitor via HDMI. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, or simply comment.

I think you will find, if you go to Power Settings, you will find your answer. It has been set for maximum system performance and minimum windows looks.
There is nothing wrong with the wallpaper, it is just removed to utilize maximum speed from the processing.
Hope this helps.

I can't get my desktop to cover the whole screen. I have windows 7. How can I get it to cover my whole screen?


If you mean the wallpaper, you will need to go into the desktop properties and set it to stretch the image. If you mean the desktop itself...you will need to change the screen resolution.

Standard monitors use dimentions like 1024x768, but a wide screen uses one like 1280x768. If you use a resolution that doesn't match the aspect ratio of the monitor it will fill in the extra space with black space and no desktop.

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.

Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse button anywhere on your desktop "wallpaper".

Click Properties.
Click Settings.
Move the slider to 800-by-600 or 1024-by-800 or 1280-by-1024.
Click OK.

Now, install the CA software.

You have the graphics driver set to Extended Desktop.
If you move the cursor to the right, can you see it on the new monitor?
If so you can drag any application window over to the new monitor.
If you don't like this then right-click on the desktop wallpaper and choose Properties, then find an Advanced tab and an Extended Desktop checkbox and uncheck it.

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.
