Re: Acer Monitor Display of text and image is not sharp
This might seem obvious, but is your video card output set to the native resolution on the monitor? If not, it will look fuzzy. Try 1680x1050, if you don't know the monitors native resolution. No need to use anything higher than a 60hz refresh rate either.

The stated native resolution of this monitor is 1600 x 900. If you set your display resolution to that in your computer's configuration, you will get the sharpest display.
Note that there is always a trade-off between sharp image and the size of displayed items on the screen. By that I mean that if you set your display to 1600x900, your text will be sharp, but it will be smaller on the screen than if you see the resolution to 1280x720, for example. The trade-off would be larger text (say, if you have vision problems), but the text would not be as crisp.
Experiment with a few different resolutions to see what looks the best and has the best text size on your screen.
Note also that most browsers will let you enlarge the web page on your display by pressing Ctrl+ repeatedly until you get the size you want. Pressing Ctrl- will reduce the web page displayed size.
Acer produces a number of LCD computer monitors. Acer's monitors range from 17 inches to 27 inches. Some monitors offer wide-screen viewing, embedded speakers, high-definition visuals, and various display connection ports. Acer computer monitor problems include common issues such as dead pixels, error messages, and blank screens caused by incorrect connections. Some reviewers have also detected image problems with DVD playback on some models.
"Input Not Supported" Error Message Acer computer monitors such as the G24 may issue an "Input Not Supported" error message when users set the display resolution too high. The G24's maximum display resolution is 1920x1200 with a 60Hz refresh rate. Maximum resolutions vary according to the specific monitor model and according to the capabilities of the computer's video card. b> "Input Out of Range" b> Some Acer computer monitors may report an "Input Out of Range" error message due to incorrectly set monitor refresh rates. Much like the display resolution, each monitor also has specific monitor refresh rates with which it is compatible. Blank Screen or "No Signal" Error b> Like other monitors, Acer computer monitors feature color-coded power indicator lights. If the power indicator light shows green, the contrast or brightness levels may be set too low and should be adjusted via the OnScreen Display. If this does not rid the monitor of a black screen, the monitor may be experiencing hardware failure. The "No Signal" or "Check Cable message" may indicate a problem with the monitor's cable connection with the video card. This error may also appear on a blank screen backdrop if the monitor is plugged into the incorrect port on the computer or if the computer is frozen and needs to be rebooted. Faulty power cords or outlets may cause the screen to be black and to show no power indicator color. b> Image Issues b> Some review sites such as CNET have reported problems with streaking and ghosting during DVD playback on some Acer computer monitors such as the AL1931. (A "ghost" is an identical offset image as the primary or desired image.) Unstable or unclear image issues may be caused by incorrectly programmed VGA timings or incorrectly installed monitor drivers. b> Dead Pixels b> Dead pixels and sub-pixels can cause a variety of display enjoyment problems. Acer will only accept returns on LCD computer monitors that have "more than four (4) defective pixels per million pixels." Further, the central area of the monitor may have no more than one defective pixel. Acer does not differentiate in warranty terms between pixels and sub-pixels. Hope this helps.
New monitor, they are all limited by hardware and you can't make them better then stock usually. I would check to see if you can trade it back in from where you got it for a monitor with better reviews.
hope this helped. :)
hi, when all connected press and hold the FN key on the bottom left of the keypad while pressing one of the function keys F1 to F12(the one with picture of a screen or monitor). You may need to press it more than once but if will eventually switch the display over to the tv
