Question about Acer AL1715 (Black, Silver) 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor screen is off center

I cannot get it to move back to its proper position where I can see the whole thing. I alt/tabbed out of World of Warcraft and this is the second time this has happened. First time i rebooted and it fixed itself.

    I cannot move it properly back into place. It remains off center despite having tried that.

Adjust it on your monitor they are not all quitte the same but there must be a button there.Use adjust horizontal if you can find it.
First find your Monitor manual.Then find where it mention something about HorizSync and VertRefresh.
Next open the terminal:
Code:
sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Go to the Section "Monitor"
and add the correct HorizSync and HorizSync

CAUTION: Make sure it's correct it can damage your monitor if you use incorrect numbers!
save and exit. Reboot.

Eg. Mine looks like this:
Code:
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "DELL P992"
HorizSync 30.0 - 107.0
VertRefresh 48.0 - 170.0
Option "DPMS"
EndSection

Another way is to backup your /etc/X11/xorg.conf

The world is upside down, the king has lost his crown, don't laugh please, my monitor screen suddenly got upside down.


Rotating the screen image is a feature of the graphics card and is normally caused by accidentally pressing a combination of keys. To correct it, hold down Ctrl and Alt and press one of the four arrow keys (up, down, left or right) until you have it the correct way up.

As your screen is completely upside down, hold down Ctrl and Alt and press the Up arrow key.

Alternatively, you probably have a Rotation setting in the display properties of the graphics card. You should be able to reach your graphic card settings, but reading and setting them properly may be difficult since everything you see on the screen is upside down until it's fixed.

If all else fails, try restoring the system to an earlier date when the display was right. This will reset the driver to its proper orientation.

The Program Monitor stopped displaying. It's just black space on the screen.


Milady, I am bound to tell you; there is one fairer!
(cough)
You mean the Task Monitor program is now a black rectangle on your screen? It happens when your system's bogged down; tons of variables play into this, not least OS version, Movie Edit patch level and CPU in use. Does the Task Monitor rerender when you alt tab out of it and back in? Is this affecting other things?

How do you remove it from the monitor?


From the back the sound bar slides lengthwise to the right. To keep it from sliding there is a plastic tab set into the back of the monitor on the right center end. To release that tab pull the release lever located over the tab on the right center of the speaker assembly, toward you.Then the whole speaker assembly will slide to the right and lift. Done.

"No Signal" with the Acer AL1917W LCD Monitor


NeroVampire, Will this problem happen while running other applications other than gaming software? I'm not a gamer so I don't fully understand how playing high speed games affects things such as memory usage and other things like how fast the monitor must be to not get lost or confused when the pc is pumping out screen data at a rate so high that the DSP cannot keep up with it. The only advice would be to swap in a different monitor and see if it screws-up also. You could also move the acer to a KNOWN GOOD fast pc and see if it gets confused there also. Good luck guy! I'm louie12fix on fixya.

My icons and tool bars are so big nothing I bring up fits on the screen.....I can make the internet smaller with the mouse wheel, but it shows in a very small space because of the very large tool bars....


Here are some tips to help you move around when you can't see other parts of the screen
Alt + Tab (hold down Alt and press tab) will move you between open windows
Tab will move you from button to button and to the file menu at the top
Shift + tab will move you back, for example if you hit the tab key one too many times
Alt + F4 will close the open window, if no window is selected it will bring up the shutdown computer screen
F5 will refresh a page on the Internet
F11 will switch between Full Screen mode and not full screen mode
So try getting to the "approved" window and then using tab to select it.
