Question about Acer Computers & Internet

I bought the Acer 24" widescreen monitor. My main of the computer requires an unstreched view. No matter what resolution I use the horizontal is stretched so that circles look like ovals. I am using XP and see nothing in the Acer monitor program or in XP to resolve this. Dieter

Every time i try to go on my webcam it tells me that the hp media smart webcam does not support a screen resolution smaller then 1024 by 768?


I've had problems using a widescreen monitor with certain programs/devices when my horizontal resolution is set high enough (for example: 1024), but my vertical resolution is too low (for example: 700). This may be your problem check the display settings and increase if necessary.

Hope this helps you.

Thanks,

It is definetly a widescreen the issue is either with your display card or your resolution setting you need to check both. If you would have told me wether your display is through mother board or scsi card the model of mother board or the display card then i could fix the issue easilly.

External widescreen monitor for laptop


You have to make sure that the laptop could provide the required resolution of the monitor, because of the laptop could only give1280 x 1024 and the monitor is requiring 1600 x 1024, then expect that you will get that result.

Try changing the resolution of the laptop. Set it to 1024 x 768.

Have a good day!

I just bought a new acer 22 in monitor...i can't seem to get rid of the squat look


you need a video card that is capable of widescreen display resolutions.  Most older cards and onboards do not have this feature.

Round things are shaped like eggs


This is a widescreen monitor. To get the display to look right, you need to install the software that came with the monitor, and set the resolution to the manufacturer's recommended setting (the monitor's "native resolution"). I don't know what that is for the AL1917W. I have the AL1917, not the widescreen. A friend got a 21-inch widescreen and had the same trouble as you until we set it to the proper resolution. (And it looks great and I'm jealous!)

Acer AL2216WBD LCD Monitor Problem


If your computer does not have a video card that supports the correct resolutions for the widescreen monitors, then your picture may get stretched. Much like watching normal tv programs on a an hd set. It will eitther strech or cut off the picture.
Try different settings in you computer display settings.

Input not supported when trying to play a game


the game will need to be set to the same screen resolution as your monitor or the best that suits, beccause of it being widescreen, so look in the graphic or video settings in the game, or change the resolution of your monitor to suit the games highest setting. This is done by right clicking on your desktop, down to properties and then the settings tab in the next window and then move the slider at the screen resolution box.
