Re: DVD playing

Right click on the desktop anywhere there is clear space.
Select Display properties and then select the last tab at the top of the window that pops up.
You should see the slider there to set the resoloution, and to the right is the colour depth.

How to change resolution on acer mounter

If it is a PC game, then you can use the Display settings function by right clicking the mouse in the desktop screen. Change the resolution to something like 800x600 and try. If this does not help, then you will have to provide the model number of the ACER monitor so that I can provide instructions on how to change the settings from the monitor.

Images on laptop screen are a little vertically "squeezed" (round images appear a little oval).

Change to a higher resolution. If you have a widescreen monitor, your resolution should be something like 1600 X 900 or a similar widescreen format. It sounds like you have a standard format resolution on a widescreen monitor. Play around with your display settings, when you change a setting, it gives you 15 seconds to agree to the change or it will reset to its original resolution before the change, so play around until you find one you like. You can always re-arrange your desktop icons after you get the resolution the way you want.

I see two screens on my desktop.

You are using a screen resolution that is not supported by your monitor. Start the computer in safe mode and open display properties. What ever resolution and color depth is (usually 640x480 and 16 colors), click OK button. Restart the computer. Go to display properties and increase the color depth to the maximum value. Set the resolution to 800x600. Restart the machine. Do you see double screens? No? Great! Now try increasing the resolution to the next level. (1024x768). When you click 'apply' you will be give 15 seconds to say it is OK. So if you see double screens, do not click anything. Display will revert to 800x600 resolution (and you will see only a single screen!)

Monitor color display problem

Go to the control panel. Click on display. The display applet is your next stop. The display applet is your central location for all of your display settings, including resolution, refresh rate, driver info., and color depth. The display applet has 5 tabs: Thmes, Desktop, Screen Saver, Appearance, and Settings. The 5th tab is where you make adjustments that relate directly to your monitor and video card. Look at the Settings tab. At the bottom of the dialog box, you'll see 2 options. Screen Resolution and Color Quality. By moving the Screen Resolution slider, you can change the resolution. The most common resolutions are 640x480, 800x600, 1,024x768, and 1,280x1,024.Your system may have more or fewer resolution options.

The color quality is the number of colors displayed on the screen .You can change the screen resolution with a simple slider and adjust the color depth from 4-bit all the way up to 32-bit color.

Running a 32-bit color gives a nice, realistic tone to images, and many games insist on it.

Clicking the Advance button opens another dialog box with 4 or more tabs.

The monitor tab gives you details about the currently installed monitor and enables you to make changes to the driver and the refresh rate.

After you make your changes to your monitor and it still is not working properly, it must be your video card which is not seated.
In layman term, your video card is not plugged in firmly in the slot!!

video card may not be capable of that resolution and color depth, check your video cards max resolution and color depth.
I have several lcd monitors that are 1280x 1024 and they do not need drivers to work. the video card must be capable of generating that resolution.

How to use buttons on front of Monitor for vertical Horizontal settings

Oldie, The first thing to do is set the monitor resolution, color depth and monitor refresh rate to what you want then adjust the monitor accordingly. Adjust resolution, color depth and refresh rate for Windows 2000/XP: -Right click any clear spot on your desktop and select properties from the menu that appears. -From the Display Properties box that appears click on the Settings tab. -In the screen resolution section (lower left corner) experiment with the resolutions and see what you like. -The color quality box should be set to the highest (most colors) color setting listed. -Click on the advanced button in the lower right corner. -In the next window click on the monitor tab. -Typically you would want to set it at 70 Hertz or better. The higher the setting the less flicker you will notice, however, there is always a trade off. I would start with 70 Hertz and gradually move up; at some point your monitor will reach a setting it can?t support. If the screen blanks out Windows will reset back to the previous settings as long as you don?t hit any keys. -click the OK button twice. More to follow?.
