The picture on the screen is stretched to fit the wide screen and seems distorted. I can't find any settings for this acer monitor on my computer.


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

Monitor screen display stretched center but squashed/narrow edges


On the monitor itself, I am guessing this is a desktop? There are buttons for adjustment. Look for the menu button around the bezel of the monitor and press it. Scroll through the settings for the default setting and press that. Once the default settings are made for the monitor, then you can go to the graphics settings available through windows to get the resolution straightened out.

Distorted images due to wide screen


Hi
Your entire desktop is probably stretched left to right.
You need to adjust the resolution of your computers video card in the display properties to one that the widescreen will accept correctly.
There is a chance that your video card may not have the correct resolutions available. If this is the case then you may be stuck with this view until you change coputers or video cards.
to get to display properties based on win2k or xp
Right click in the center of your desktop, choose properties, go to settings and there you should see the resolutions available. Try different ones till you find a good one, you may have to settle for one that is close to your monitors setup if the exact one isn't available.
If using a laptop with a standard screen with the wide monitor, you may need to disable the laptop screen and use just the monitor to get the correct resolution on the monitor.

Monitor installtion


Hi Robin,

Hope this instruction well do solve like I met some problem like this. Try to reset the monitors setting manually in OSD (on screen display) mode. Look for frequency settings start at lower and have test it all. Respectively try to configure the video card frequency settings at Operating System GUID (Graphics user interface display) video card setting properties. Start from lower frequency and notice the each changes. When perfectly proportionate select Apply settings.

Display appearing stretched


the original image size was probably recorded in 4:3 aspect ratio...meaning your widescreen is a 16:9 ratio size screen and is stretching it outwards to fill the whole screen. If you want the image to look normal.. ie. not short and fat people.... you need to change the picture size in the settings from widescreen 16:9 to normal 4:3 tv in the settings menu most likely...Also most remotes will/should have a button for that.
