How to change monitor aspect ratio for acer AL1916

The aspect ratio is expressed as two numbers separated by a colon (x:y). and they actually represent the relation between width and height of (in your case) your monitor.

Did you mean to change the resolution of your monitor? Could you please explain your problem in more detail? What is it exactly you want to achieve?

Usually under the menu function there is an aspect ratio adjustment. At that point you're going to end up with an 18.5" monitor with black letter box on each side.

Width and height ratio

You need to set your PC video output resolution to the native resolution of this monitor, which is 1680X1050 @60Hz.
Right click on the desk top, the display properties will come up, click on setting tab, then you will see resolution setting choice.

What is the recomended resolution display setting for my Acer X193w monitor

Hi there,

A computer monitor is made of pixels (short for "picture element").

Monitor resolution is measured in pixels, width by height. 640 x 480 resolution means that the screen is 640 pixels wide by 480 tall, an aspect ratio of 4:3. With the exception of one resolution combination (1280 x 1024 uses a ratio of 5:4), all aspect ratios are the same.

Hope this initial information helps. Let me hear from you again for any clarifications.

Thank you for using

Is ACER al2016W monitor dual-voltage?

Voltage Required AC 120/230 V

Yes Bob, you can use it in UK 240V and I believe no adjustments required since they are swithed mode power supplies.

Just to make sure have look at the data label at the back of the monitor it should say AC 120/230V. UK 240 is OK since there is a +/- 10% variation allowed on that.

I got the information out of the specifications on line, so you should be OK.

Icons and screen not sized properly-too big and out of proportion

Right click on your desktop
Click Properties
Click on the Settings Tab
It will say resolution with a sliding bar, you can move that around untill you find the right aspect ratio. Try 1024x768..

Hope that helps let me know :)

How can I change aspect ratio on acer 19"monitor. The picture is not real is stretched Thank You

In the display properties you can adjust your resolution (aspect ratio).

1. Right click in an open area on your desktop and go to properties.

2. The display properties window will appear. Click on the "SETTINGS" tab.

3. You can adjust the resolution one notch at a time to find the aspect you're looking for. NOTE: by clicking on "APPLY" instead of "OK" you can see the affects of your change without closing the window down. This will allow you to easily change it again without having to reopen the display properties windows over and over again.

Hope this helps.
