SIMPLE !! The "shadowing" you talk about is due to cables in back of your computer, touching or too close together. I had this happen to mine. I moved the cables apart, and no more shadows !! Sounds too easy, but it works. Takes a few seconds. Immediate results.

How do I change the font and icon size on the monitor. I have two monitors and font and icons are different sizes.


Change the Resolution of the 2 monitors to match the setting you prefer. (Right-Click on Desktop, choose "Screen resolution" It should show both monitors.Set resolution on the "Wrong" screen to match the settings on the "Correct" screen.

I have a new Acer 23" LCD monitor - the desktop icons, my email, my word documents - everything is HUGE - I cannot read anything without going back and forth, up and down and it is impossible to type...


You need to change the monitor resolution setting in your operating system. If you are using Windows then go to Control Panel and look for Display Settings (or something similar depending on the version of Windows). Adjust the Resolution setting (probably using a slidebar on screen) to match the optimum setting of your monitor. If you don't have the monitor instructions try the highest setting first and move down one step at a time until you get a correct resolution on the display.

Just set up monitor after we moved. The fonts on microsoft features are now small. Attempt to change font size (on control panel) are not successful. example of "features" = task bar words very small,...


anywhere on the desktop(not over an icon or folder) right click on the mouse and go to properties. A window called display properties will come up. On th tabs at the top click on settings.
There will be a slider bar called screen resolution, move the slider down and the windows icons and folders and fonts will get larger adjust this and keep clicking apply until it was the same size previously

All icons and other images are undersized. Acer Model #X203H


Adjust the screen resolution a little lower and the icons will be a little larger.
Try a screen resolution of 1028 X 768

How do I adjust my monitor? My home page does not


I'm not sure what operating system you're using nor what you mean by your "home page". If you mean your browser window doesn't fill the whole Windows desktop, what happens when you maximize the window?

If your desktop looks huge with tiny icons (and tiny-looking windows, if you have any open and not maximized) all clustered in the middle of the screen, your display resolution may be set higher than you're accustomed to. In most versions of Windows you can go to Control Panel | Display, see what your current resolution is, and try adjusting it. The higher the numbers, the "bigger" the desktop area (and the smaller the icons and everything else). If you adjust the resolution higher than your monitor can handle, you may lose your display and have to restart the computer in something like Safe mode to get to Control Panel and readjust it. If you adjust the resolution lower (or run in Safe Mode) your icons may not fit on the smaller desktop and may get scrambled. In that case, first straighten out the display resolution, then move your icons back where you want them.

Desktop icons appear as a shadow on all windows.


[u][b]LCD Monitor Shadow Effect[/b][/u]
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this very simple. No software or hard ware changes required.
The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise.
[u][b]Solution: [/b][/u]Keep the two cables - (power cable and moitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
Thank you.

Hooking up a second ACER monitor as an extended desktop


I have 2 acer AL2016W's and have the same problem. The earlier ones with the VGA only are the problem from what I can see, they just don't play nicely with the video card for some reason.
First, on your main monitor, click "Show displays in menu bar" on your monitor control panel. This will let you set the resolution for each monitor from the main one, click on the little monitor icon on the top right screen to do this. 
If that doesn't work try this:
Connect one acer as the main monitor and one crappy vga crt monitor as the second.
Set mirrored desktop in the system preferences so that the crappy CRT is displaying the exact same resolution as the acer. (1680x1050 59.9Hz)
Disable mirrored desktop. You should now have an acer and a crappy CRT both running 1680x1050 in extended desktop mode.
Shut down, reconnect the acer in place of the crappy CRT.
This should "trick" your video card into having the right resolution, otherwise you'll just get the stupid "input not supported" screen, with no ability to auto configure or use any of the built in controls.
