Question about Acer AL1716 F Monitor

1 Answer

Screen problems When I turn on the PC the monitor has these light parts around the borders. It's like a bow from corner to corner all the way around. It's there when I watch a movie and when I play games that don't take up the whole screen. It is there when I have the screen filled but it's not as prominent. Is this normal for a LCD.. This is my first one.

No, it's not normal. It's seems your panel it damaged due to leaked around the edges...

Can I get rid of borders above and below my screen when watching netfix on my pc

What's probably going on here is that the video your watching is a different aspect ratio than your monitor. So for the video to completely cover your monitor it would either need to be stretched, or have part of the video cropped off on the sides. Instead of distorting or cropping the image the black borders are shown. Netflix doesn't provide a way to change this currently. A work-around though, would be to change the resolution on your monitor. So if for example your monitor has an aspect ratio of 16:10 (like 1920x1200), and the video is 16:9 (like 1920x1080), you would change your resolution from 1920x1200 down to 1920x1080. (9/16 * 1920 = 1080)

I have a lenova 3000 100 when I turn it on it goes directly to a white screen?

Dear Ashley,

If you pass the point of your index finger around the border of the screen, pressing the screen just a little bit, do you see a small risk with dark borders at any position on the screen?

If you do find any dark spots when you move your finger around the screen, your LCD screen is broken and needs to be replaced.

Un wanted screen bubbles around border of screen

If you are using a desktop computer, then I suggest that you unplug the monitor from your computer and observe what displays on the screen. Usually, monitors will run a screen test if not connected to the computer. With that you can identify what's the problem. If you see the same issue even if the monitor is unplugged, then you would need to get your monitor fixed.

Screen resolution change = black border around small screen

Once you change the resolution to a smaller size and you see the black border, go into the monitor's menu and there should be settings for the Horizontal and Vertical size/position. Adjust those until it looks correct.

I hope this helps :)
