Question about Acer AL1916 A (Black, Silver) 19 inch LCD Monitor
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?

You can find information in the Acer Al1916v and the AL1916p service guides. These are PDF's and can be found by Google. I cannot find the 1916w service guide either but these two PDF's gave me enough information on how to disasemble the 1916w monitor. Please note that the electronics shown are not for the 1916w. My 1916w monitor has a Delta A190E2 power supply that the Delta site cannot find any reference to. I replaced two blown (domed) CapXon 1000 microfarad 25v dc electrolytic capacitors with better quality caps since this brand is known to be a source of problems. My monitor hissed when it came on and stopped when the screen went dark and the orange light came on. This kind of noise is generally a sign that the power supply is failing and caps that are not domed could also be leaking and about to fail. Replacing the caps solved the problem.
It should be noted that eBay is selling this same power supply for ShopJimmy for about $90.

the description you gave was the long way right click on my computer, select properties then device manager, you will be in the same place but lots faster, plug and play does not identify the monitor or its compatible display resolutions, right click on the desktop select properties then display settings, go into advanced tab and look at the monitor, and the adapter, you can play with the setting until you find one that works, 1400 x 900 may not be supported by the video card(adapter) so that may be why your loosing the video settings.
hope this helps.

You'll need to change your resolution to one of the below to get the correct aspect ratio for a wide-screen display.
1440 x 900
1600 x 900
1600 x 1024
1680 x 1050
You will find these settings in Control Panel / Display / Advanced. If none of the above are options you will need to obtain newer display drivers.
Please let me know if this helps or if I can be of further assistance. Thank you.
