Question about Acer 22" X223w LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor displays text & linework as skewed w/in drafting apps

Just changed work monitor to Acer 22" LCD X223w from old CRT. When using drafting software, e.g. AutoCAD & MicroSurvey, some linework and text appears skewed when not drawn exactly along east/west axis or north/south axis. For instance a rectangle appears more like a parallelogram when oriented at a 45 degree angle w.r.t horizontal axis, yet all corners are indeed square or 90 degrees. Likewise straight text appears somewhat like italicized text when angled away from horizontal axis. How to correct display and eliminate skewing of text and linework. Coworker suggests it may indicate a graphic card update is required. thank you.

P.S. images and HTTP docs display correct.

    Thanks for response, much appreciated.

    Problem has been fixed and involved updating the driver for graphic card at manufacturer's web page.

    P.S. Monitor had already been set to optimal resolutions as listed in reply post.

    thank you

    1600 x 1050 @60Hz is the native resolution for this monitor for best picture and aspect ratio. What does your PC video resolution set to?http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/al...

Everything is a little squashed!


You need to change the monitor type. If you open the display settings and then setting tab-advanced-monitor you see a properties button. Click that and then the driver tab on the new window. What you need to do is go to Acers website und get the "INF" or driver file for your monitor. download and save this file. Then go back to the drivers window and click the reinstall drivers button and then point it towards the file you downloaded. This file lets windows know what settings the monitor can use. After that is installed and you go back to the settings window you should find that the allowed display resolutions have changed. You should be able to change it to one the monitor displays properly now.

Acer 22 aspect circle, not elipse


You'll need to change your resolution to one of the below to get the correct aspect ratio for a wide-screen display.

1440 x 900
1600 x 900
1600 x 1024
1680 x 1050

You will find these settings in Control Panel / Display / Advanced. If none of the above are options you will need to obtain newer display drivers.

Please let me know if this helps or if I can be of further assistance. Thank you.

Desktop distortion of a Picture


you have to make sure that the picture you want to use as a background has similar resolution to that you are using in your actual display. for example if you are using 800x600 resolution you should have a picture close to that so it doesnt look distorted.
