Question about Acer AL2016WBbd Monitor

Open Question

Resolution on AL2016W

On art pictures and videos, the resolution is perfect, which leads me to believe that there is nothing wrong with the monitor. However, on some applications (not Adobe) the black print and black lines and other resolutions seem washed out. Right now I seem to be looking at some cheesy looking photos on the left of this box. I have seen my friend's Dell monitor, and she does not have this problem. Can you explain this to me or fix it? I have a modest graphics card on this PC.

My email is esigward@cs.com

Get a new video card, you dont need the best video card to support 1440*900. It is affordable and the best solution.

SOURCE: 1440*900 resolution is not coming

Your going to love this. Open control panel, open display. Click the settings tab. Click Advanced. Click the Monitor tab. Remove the check mark from "hide modes". Click the drop down menu & set it to 75 hertz. Click Apply & than ok. You are now back to the Settings window. At Screen resolution move the slide bar to more. Pick what you want. Again click Apply & than ok. Bingo there you are! Have a nice day.

SOURCE: Max resolution?

It is very possible that your video card doesn't support the wide screen resolution, especially if it is more than 2-3 years old.

I'm using the Al1916W and it looks great at 1440 x 990. Make sure you have the latest Screen card drivers installed.

Width and height ratio


You need to set your PC video output resolution to the native resolution of this monitor, which is 1680X1050 @60Hz.
Right click on the desk top, the display properties will come up, click on setting tab, then you will see resolution setting choice.

Acer al2016w monitor


when you say you have it plugged into the on-board video output.. does that mean there is a graphics card installed too? used to be graphics card installed? if there is or was then its possible that there is a bois setting that tells your computer to use the existent or non-existent graphics card. either was your onboard is going to shut down. This is one theory.. but since its is turning off once you get to your desk top the more likely reason is that its software based and you either have the wrong resolution, driver, or refresh rate selected to use when windows boots. Toy around with diffrent resolutions, refresh rates, also if you have a graphics card plug it into that. your on board most certinly will not be enabled if you have a graphics card.

VGA MODE in vista:

Restart the computer and immediately start pressing the F8 key, once per second. At the selection screen, use the up/down keys to select "Enable VGA Mode", then press the "Enter" key.. If it works, it will bring up the basic VGA drivers in "normal" Windows and should allow you to install the Vista compatible drivers for your new card. After installing the new drivers, restart the computer and if it remains in VGA, you should then be able to adjust the resolution, etc. from the "Display Properties".
