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.

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.

I have a new Acer 22in v223w flickers


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!

How do I move my screen image a few pixels to the left?


TV - analogue (S-Video, composite) X X X TV - analogue (component) X X VGA (with EDID) X X VGA (without EDID) X Digital (DVI, DisplayPort, or HDMI) X X Digital (HDTV via DVI, DisplayPort, or HDMI) X X LVDS (notebook display) X If the feature is supported, the corresponding tab is available on the Adjust Desktop Size and Position page. If only one feature is supported, then only the controls for that feature appear on the page and there are no other tabs.
Scaling The scaling controls let you adjust the size of the desktop to best fit your screen. The configuration that you specify may be overridden by the settings in the Resize section.

Select a scaling mode

Aspect ratio: This setting expands the desktop as much as possible while maintaining the same dimensional proportions, or aspect ratio, as the original image. There may be some black borders, but you may prefer this setting to avoid distorting the image.
Full-screen: This setting stretches the desktop to fill the entire display screen.
No scaling: This setting leaves the display image in its original size and centres it on your screen resulting in a small though crisp image. A black border may appear around the display image.

Perform Scaling on

GPU: This causes the GPU to scale the desktop from the set resolution up to the native resolution timing.
Automatic: This setting uses a combination of display and GPU scaling to scale the desktop from the set resolution up to the native resolution timing.

Override the scaling mode set by games and programs

When this check box is checked, applications cannot change the scaling mode set on this page.

Preview

Under the Preview section you can select a resolution and refresh rate, and then the preview image shows how full-screen applications will appear on the screen, using the selected scaling configuration. The available refresh rates will depend on the scaling method selected.
Resize Some displays, such as HDTVs, extend the edges of the display beyond the visible borders of the screen. This overscan is intended to hide broadcast data that is not intended for the viewer. This results in hiding useful parts of the screen for non-broadcast content, such as the Windows desktop.
The best way to resize the screen in order to view the entire content is to use the controls provided by the display hardware.
The resize controls on the NVIDIA Control Panel are provided in case satisfactory results cannot be achieved using the controls on the display.
Position Use the arrow buttons in the image under Adjust the desktop position to adjust the position of your desktop or image on your screen.
