Acer AT2001 cannot use as monitor

Hi
When I plug my Acer AT2001 into my PC the screen divides so that the left hand side shows on the right of my monitor and the right shows on the left of my monitor. The mouse still acts like the screen is normal so it is very difficult to use. There was no driver with the TV do I need to download one?
Please help - very frustrating

I currently own an Acer AT2001 21 inch Television/Monitor. The refresh rate on your computer should be set to 60Hertz. You can change this setting by right clicking the desktop, click properties, click settings, click advanced, click adapter, click list all modes, click 800by600 at 60Hertz. The screen resolution will not go above 800by600. Note; Initialize these settings with an old crt monitor and then plug in the Acer.

Hi,

You need to lower down the screen resolution of your PC prior to plugging in the Acer AT2001. The Acer AT2001 maximum/native resolution is 800 X 600. In some instances, lowering the screen refresh rate of the PC might also be required.

Pls don't be surprised if doing so, the icons would be a lot bigger and for some users might be inappropriate for desktop use. Additionally, it will be very bright.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Connect your laptop to an external monitor and I expect you will find it is displaying OK on the external screen.
Browse ebay for a replacement screen.

It sounds like either a bad signal input , possibly from a loose plug on the cable from the PC or bent pins on the plug / the video graphics card in the PC/ or the settings on the monitor need adjustment. Use the OSD (On Screen Display)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
First check to make sure both ends of the cable from the PC to the monitor are not damaged and are seated good & tight.
If those are fine then unplug both cables from the monitor & leave unplugged for 10 minutes or so to see if the screen has an automatic reset.
If that does not work then use the monitors OSD (On Screen Display) to adjust to default settings. If that does not work, plug the monitor into another known good PC.This will tell you right then if its the monitor or "Your" PC.

Hp laptop is has docking station connected to acer monitor. The acer monitor has the desktop background but does not show desktop icons. How do I get the icons to show on acer monitor


you will probably find that you have set the screens to run side by side, do a check by clicking the identify monitors, icons will be normaly on the left screen, check the dispay settings and you probably want to set the monitors so they both are showing the same screen at the same time.
good luck.

Problems with Acer AT2001 20 in.


Hi,

you need to go to:- My computer/control panel/display
you should be then into the display settings panel. at the top of the panel, select settings. and you should set:- colour quality Highest 32 Bit ( or whatever the highest is )
Then Screen resolution ( bottom left ) should now be 800-600 to 1024x768 or similar.
Whichever is best for your monitor.

if you can,t acheive this. you need to re-install any drivers for your graphics card or onboard vga.

Thankyou for using Fixya.

How do I rotate the screen when I rotate the Acer B203w


For Windows XP -- within the control panel, click on Display Icon and the following screen will appear. I have 2 monitors (Laptop and HP L1925 monitor). On the display properties screen, near the top of the screen, click on the “Settings” tab. When the “Settings” screen displays, select the “Advanced” button near the bottom of the screen.



The “Plug and Play Monitor …” screen will appear as shown below. From this screen, click on the “INTEL(R) Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Mobile” tab near the top of the screen. Note: Tab stretches the full width of the screen.


The "Plug and Play Monitor ..." screen will change to show Intel Graphis Media Screen. From this screen click on the “Graphics Properties” button near the center of the screen.


The screen will change to show the graphics properties. Note, the screen actually comes up with “DISPLAY SETTING” selection (in dark Blue on the Left hand side of screen). To change Display settings click on the words “DISPLAY SETTINGS” (left side of screen) and the screen will switch to show Rotation options. On the top of the screen, select the “Monitor” you wish to change by clicking on “Monitor” button. Next make sure the “Enable Rotation” box is check on the right side of screen and then click on “90”. Your monitor should rotate at this point to portrait. A message will appear letting you confirm if you wish to keep this new setting. Specify yes to keep the new setting.


This should do the trick.

Black screen on the right side of my acer 5630


You need to give me a few more details,is the screen blurry on one side,and brighter on the other?,two, are you using a some special graphics software that might not be ment for your computer,you should plug a monitor into your laptop to see if it gives the same affects,and press the window or function key, and one of the monitor symbols on your keyboard at the same time(,they are coloured the same as the function key),to change your main screen to a plug n play one,if the screen comes up with the same affects then it is a software problem,you might have to uninstall the software that is causing the problem,or two if is comes up perfectly,then it might be a hardware problem,you might have to bring your laptop to a pc mechanic to be degaussed,this puts a charge on your laptop screen and it costs more to do than replace one,most plug and play monitors can degauss them selves,others need to be done manually,unfortunately laptop screens have to be taken apart to be degaussed,i know its silly.if its not blurry then it cant be hardware problem.its one of your graphics settings.
