Acer 19167W flat screen

This is a wide screen and I would like to use it as a standard screen for adjusting photos but the width is different. Is there any method of narrowing the width to standard? Thanks, Larry

Re: acer 19167W flat screen

Depending on the application you are viewing the picture in you can shrink the application window. You could reduce the size of the viewable area but that defeats the purpose of the wide screen which is to provide a better viewing experience (to quote the marketing types). It sounds like....since the wider screen really has nothing to do with your picture might want to adjust your picture size independent of screens and applications. There are a variety of free products out there that can do this...and some are really nifty...perhaps better than the software you might now be using.

Screen horizondally pulled right side and screen rolled to left side

your monitors horizontal deflection side have some problem. you have to check the horizontal width cotrolling transistor mounded on the aluminum heatsik near the lot( line output transistor). also check the three mosfets which adjust the width for different resolutions. there are three such mosfets in the horizontal section.

fist of all replace the width controlling transistor in the heat sink. photo of mosfet and transistor is added for reference. not the exact number.

You need to set the PC VIDEO resolution to the native resolution of the monitor to get correct aspect ratio (not adjustable at the monitor, the adjustment is doen at the PC VIDEO card setting), you need to find that out from your monitor owner manual.

I have a new Acer X203H 20" wide computer monitor. All of my photos are streched wide, and everyone looks fat. Can I adjust this ?

You need to set the PC video resolution to 1600 x 900 for proper 16:9 wide screen format. But if your pictures that you taken with your camera were not 16:9, IE 4 X 5 then it will be stretched side way to fill the screen.

How do I get a normal image on an Acer X203H monitor?

right click on your desktop and select "properties" (xp)  or "personalization" (vista/7).  In xp, select the "settings" tab, and in vista/7, select "display settings". then adjust your screen resolution to a wider aspect ratio to compensate for the wide screen.

I cant fit the whole image on the screen. The options to adjust only allow me to adjust the wont let me show both the top of my windows open AND the start button.

Your resolution may be set to high on the computer. Or you have a standard screen resolution set and since the monitor is a wide screen, it is cutting it off.
Try a different resolution 1440x900 is what the va1930wm uses.
If using a laptop with a standard type screen on it, you may have to set the laptop to just light the monitor to allow this setting to take.
Since this monitor is a wide screen, it may have options in the menu to stretch or zoom on an image if the resolution is not set to a wide screen format.

Have black area on right side of screen and can't get full screen

What video-card does your computer have?
Some older video-cards do not support "wide-screen" monitors.
Thus, they only "paint" 80% of the width of the screen.
