Question about Acer V223WBD Monitor

1 Answer

V223W - Cant turn off scaling

My GPU settings are being overrided by the monitor's auto-scaling options.

How do i come around turning that off? I can't seem to find it when I go around the monitors options from the onboard panel.

E.g. I want to play a 4:3 game, settings are allowed to have 'black bars' to allow a non stretch game-play. However the monitor stretches it regardless.

    Yes it does support it, its a ATI 4800 series >_>".

    I use XP.

    And i have checked at acer and there was one driver, but that came about utterly useless... Australian sites gave zilch for it too.

Does your video card supports 4:3, if it does some Acer monitors required software to compensate for user demand. If your don't have one go to the Acer website and download it. If you have Vista you may need an update, (sorry we don't have these problems under Xp) ;-)

Acer V223W off center

it happened to me. I changed computers but that did not solve the problem so it's not the video card. what did help was I turned off the monitor to reboot it then, using a different computer I reset the resolution to the lowest possible setting. when the monitor adjusted to the new resolution it reset itself. I then set it back to the higher resolution and everything was centered again.

You could have a faulty power supply. If the capacitors have a blown (deformed top) then they are faulty. Replacing these capacitors with new ones may fix the problem provided nothing else is faulty. Make sure you replace them with the same voltage and capacitor rating.

Benq V2210 Led Monitor. Using HDMI cable, how do I adjust so that screen size fills the entire monitor? at the moment it's about 25mm smaller all the way around approx.

I will assume you have an ATi graphics accelerator.
Here are the steps to change the settings;
Right click your desktop and open the Catalyst Control Center.
If it is the first time you have started it, select advanced.
Once it is open, on the upper left select "Desktops & Displays" in the drop down.
Your display should show up in the list with a 1 on it.
On the small preview of it on the bottom left, click the tiny black arrow on the upper right of the icon.
Click "Configure". From here, click the scaling options tab. Slide the slider all the way to overscan.
Hit apply.
Go back to the attributes tab then uncheck "Enable GPU Scaling". This step is optional, but it can correct some blurry text issues.

Let me know how it goes,

AOC monitor 2436vh does not fill the screen using the HDMI connector. There is a 1 inch black border around the window. Controls to stretch the display are locked out (not accessible) when using that...

The "Best Solution" fixes a problem that is unrelated to the original poster. anononline19's solution is to fix the entire OSD being locked (displays OSD Locked when the menu button is pressed).

Original poster's problem can be fixed by changing your graphics card's "overscan" settings.

Overscan on ATI cards:

Overscan on nVidia cards is currently not supported.

Check your power supply. IF it is through a UPS then try connecting directly to a main supply. If problem persists then look for a ACer service center immediately. There might be a problem with the panel.

Acer speaker?

There are two possible problems here. (1). The volume control on your monitor is turned down. With the button on the front of your monitor, find the menu/option button, and look for volume control (2) The volume coming out of your computer is low. Double click on the speaker at the bottom right of your screen, located on the start bar. Use the sliders to change the volume. This should fixya up.

Good Luck!
