Right-click your desktop, click properties
go to 'settings' and select the 19 inch monitor
now change the resolution to the format you want to use.
Set it to something like 1600x1200, or 1024x768

Why width of my display of 17' crt monitor model


The screen resolution probably set incorrectly.
Go to Control Panel - Display - Settings tab and move the Screen resolution slider, try 1024 x 768 resolution first.

Monitor display width to wide


You should first check the native resolution of the replacement monitor, then set windows to use that resolution.

My computer's all windows screen has suddenly shrunk today with a black border in right and left side. Now how can I get ride of this problem and make my windows screen normal again?


It's probably the monitor either was adjusted or is having a problem.

Use the buttons on the monitor to adjust the horizontal width on the screen...This should stretch your windows display across the screen if you adjust properly. Most monitors also have an auto adjust option...you can try that too.

I can't tell you exactly what the menu options are, because I don't know the buttons on your monitor. but if you find the menu, you should be able to make the adjustment.

Good Luck

Cant get inbuilt monitor speakers in Optima desktop pc to work


ome LCD monitors have inbuilt speakers and a headphone socket that can be very handy if, say, you're using a website that provides sound, such as the free language tutorials on http://www.bbc.co.uk. The internal speakers, of course, have to be connected to a sound card, just as external speakers have to be.

The inbuilt speakers in an LCD monitor are fine for the sound produced by websites, but if you want to use your computer to watch DVD movies, most authoratitive sources recommend the use of a separate sound system.

Most LCD monitors have an aspect ratio (see further down the page for more information on this) of 4:3, simply because the standard display resolutions (see further down the page for more information on this) such as 800X600 and 1024X768 have a height-to-width ratio of 4:3, which is what the aspect ratio is.

An aspect ratio of 4:3 is equivalent to the screen being viewed in the landscape printing orientation, and as such is ideal for dealing with documents, such as large spreadsheets, that are wider than they are high. But most document pages are best viewed in the portrait orientation, in which the height of the page is greater than its width. Therefore, some LCD monitors can be rotated through 90 degrees so that they can be viewed in the portrait orientation.

The monitors that allow rotation usually also come with the software that changes the output from the computer to match the portrait orientation of the screen. Pivot Pro is a good example of such software.

How can I change aspect ratio on acer 19"monitor. The picture is not real ..it is stretched Thank You


In the display properties you can adjust your resolution (aspect ratio).

1. Right click in an open area on your desktop and go to properties.

2. The display properties window will appear. Click on the "SETTINGS" tab.

3. You can adjust the resolution one notch at a time to find the aspect you're looking for. NOTE: by clicking on "APPLY" instead of "OK" you can see the affects of your change without closing the window down. This will allow you to easily change it again without having to reopen the display properties windows over and over again.

Hope this helps.

2 problems: 1. Is there a way to make the images on my 19 inch acer lcd monitor not appear stretched? 2. How do I get a screen resolution of 1440 x 900 (It's not one of the options in my display...


1. The only way to avoid stretching of images is by increasing the resolution. Many 19-inch monitors with conventional (4:3) aspect ratios have 1600 x 1200 pixel resolution. The 1600 x 1200 resolution is ideal for graphic artists and those who work with photos, since it's close to the resolution of a 2-megapixel digital photo.

2. You can double check by going to the display properties - Settings- Advanced tab below the screen resolution slider, choosing the Adapter tab, click List all modes and that will settle it once and for all. If 1440 x 990 isn't listed you're likely going to have to buy a graphics card that can reproduce that resolution.

Also try and update the driver for your graphics card.

Philips game trouble


When your game first loads. Enter the games settings and adjust the screen resoultion to match your wide screen monitor. If you can't get that far than hook up that other monitor. Load the game & enter it's screen settings (display) & adjust the resoultion. Your new monitor is wide screen. Your game needs to match the wide screen as well.

Good Luck!
