Acer LCD AL1716W Monitor shows lines

Just got this new Acer for Christmas but now that it is hooked up it seems to have stretched the screen and by doing so filled in the stretch with little lines. How do I fix this. My old CRT worked fine. Is this do to the regular 4:3 ratio but this uses a different ratio that seems to have stretched the screen? Any help will do. Thanks.

I cant connect to my tv threw my acer laptop .


The TV probably doesn't have a resolution your graphics card can detect, you're going to have to get a different GPU if you want to do this, or possibly use an HDMI port since those will adapt and stretch the screen resolution.

I have recently bought acer aspire 4750g and when i connect it to my sony bravia lcd thru hdmi it didnot give accurate size screen on my lcd


By not giving an accurate size, do you mean that everything looks stretched, is it not filling the screen, or is it cutting off the picture at the edges?
If it looks stretched or not filling the screen, you need to change the resolution of your screen. To do this in Windows Vista or 7 you need to right click on an empty portion of your desktop and click on "Screen Resolution." From there, click the drop down menu labeled "Resolution" and adjust it to something that looks right. crasher35_12.jpg
In Windows XP, right click on an empty portion of your desktop and click on "Properties." From there you need to click on the "Settings" tab, then move the slider inside the box labeled "Screen Resolution." Change it to something that looks right. crasher35_13.jpg

Try right click on the desktop and choose display or personalize, or a call close to do the display settings.

Vertical Red Line down the screen of my Acer Al1717.


Try hooking an external monitor. If it will still show on the other display, possibly it is a video card problem. But I highly doubt it. Usually for this issue, it will have a good display on an external monitor. Try if it will still appear n the BIOS page. Press F2 several times immediately after turning the computer on. If problem still shows there, then it is the LCD that is causing it to happen. You need to replace the LCD.

ACER AL1716W no power


Hello Cornloh, Hi! it seems to me that the switching elements are not working, you need to check the Power transistor for shorts, and replace the IC (switching IC, usually IP3842). the easiest is to use an Oscilloscope to read/find the pulsing signal.

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.
