Question about LG W2261V 22" LCD Monitor

Optimal resolution problem, edge of desktop outside screen

I just bought a W2261VP monitor, but when I select the optimal resolution 1920x1080, my desktop gets expanded beyond the edges of the screen, i need to scroll to see the other parts of my desktop. Only have that problem with this resolution.
Using DSUB connection, DVI doesn't work, when i connect the cable, the screen goes into power save mode.

Your screen probably wont recognise the dvi cable if the dsub is plugged in, you will have to use the buttons on the monitor to adjust the settings to dvi rather than it automatically using the dsub. also, ever tried adjusting the aspect ratio? to make it shrink abit to fit your screen.

1920x1080 resolution is the starting point for HD video. If you have set your desktop resolution to that or anything avove then you should be running at HD resolutions. Maybe the image/video you are watching is not at a HD resolution, therefore it will appear distorted and streched (poor quality). To fully experience HD playback use video files and imaged that are at the 1920x1080 resolution and above.

Says change resolution to 1920x1080


To change the resolution of your monitor, right click your desktop and click Properties. Go to the Settings tab, and then drag the slider in the Screen Resolution box all the way to the right. That should make it 1920x1080. Click OK and then your resolution should change.

Your game does not natively run at the same resolution as Windows. Check the video/graphics settings in the game itself to adjust the resolution to 1920x1080.
Note that increasing the resolution to this, will drastically increase the load on your graphic card.

Using an external monitor with 1920x1080 resolution in my laptop


Well IF the Drivers support it then YES you can. Simply, make sure that the setup, is dual monitor, with extended desktop, active. Now, go into properties, and click, on the external screen, IF you can set this resolution, to what you wish, you will be able to do so. Both Monitors Do NOT have to be the same, usually, a laptop['s screen, resolution, isn't that large, but certain, screens and drivers, can support this. Ensure you have the most up-to-date Video drivers, for your Card.

1920x1080 resolution-entire screen not viewable


This also happens to my vga connection to my TV.
I used my tv remote "auto" button to re-size it to fit correctly.
If your monitor/TV does not have the adjustment, you may need to
supply your vga compatible device with your monitor's driver software.
This tells your computer what monitor specifications you have.

I have a Dell monitor and the text is blurry and fuzzy, how do I fix this?


this is actually from dell support website.. hope it will correct your problem...


1 Ensure the correct resolution is set for the monitor. Flat panel monitors display the sharpest, clearest images when set to their optimal resolution. Sometimes games and other programs will change the resolution then fail to set it back once they are closed. This will then make the desktop look big, distorted, and grainy. Perform the following steps to adjust the resolution:
  1. Right-click an empty area of the desktop, and then click Properties. (Or, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Display.)

  2. In the Display Properties window, click the Settings tab.

  3. Under Screen resolution, move the slider to the desired setting. For most flat panels the optimal setting will be all the way to the right.

  4. Click Apply, and then click OK.

  5. If prompted, restart the computer.
NOTE: If the resolution will not adjust to the appropriate settings, the video driver may need to be reinstalled or updated.


2 Ensure the screen is clean. Finger prints and smudges will make the screen look blurry. Clean the screen with a soft lint free cloth. If needed, dampen the cloth with warm water or use a LCD cleaning kit that can be purchased from most electronics stores.
3 Use the On Screen Display (OSD) on the monitor to select the Auto Adjust feature. Selecting this will synch the video signal and can sharpen the video image.
4 Reseat the video signal cable to ensure a secure connection.
5 Use the On Screen Display (OSD) on the monitor to select the Factory Reset feature.
6 Test the monitor on another computer or test another monitor on this computer. If available, testing different hardware will isolate if the problem stays with the computer or monitor

Dell monitor and acer one laptop


Yes, you can connect. BUT, after that right click on the desktop and select Properties->Settings. There you will find two monitor icons. The left one is your Acer display while the right one is your new Dell Display. Select the right one and configure it. You should have the same resolution and color as the main Acer display to use it optimally.

My desktop is not centered and the fonts are too big. Also my Start button and bottom toolbar have disappeared.


Sounds like your resolution has been set too low.

Firstly, i'm going to assume you have a 17" LCD monitor, and that you are running Windows XP. (what a guess!) =-]

Generally, you'd want to right-click the desktop in a blank area, select properties. This gives you the display properties. Go to the last tab across called "settings", then under "screen resolution", drag the slider up a notch and hit apply. If it looks right, leave it at that. If it's not quite right, go another notch and apply. Keep going until you have it right.

But on your 17" LCD monitor, running the DVI cable to the PC... the computer should already have detected it's maximum resolution. In this case, you can drag the slider all the way to the right and hit apply, knowing that this is the optimal resolution. Also on your Dell LCD, you should have several buttons for adjusting the screen. One of those buttons is usually a "self-adjust" or "auto detect" or "some other obvious thing" for self-adjusting the screen viewable area. It *should* do this automatically when you change resolutions, which your Dell 173FPb should do anyway. =-]
