Without more details, it is really hard to provide assistance but here are some general items without knowing the model Monitor, the video card or the operating system you are using.

Generally (I can't know for sure without the LCD model) 22 inch LCDs have an optimal resolution of 1680 by 1050 pixels.

So the first thing you need to do is ensure that the video card display resolution is set to 1680 by 1050. If 1680 by 1050 is not an option in your display properties (In windows XP, right click the background, click properties, click settings tab, then slide the resolution bar to 1680 by 1050. Click OK) then try upgrading your video driver.

If that doesn't give you the 1680 by 1050 option, then your video card may need replacement with a better card.

How to change the desktop background image.


There are two ways in which to set your desired image to your desktop background.

Option 1
1) Fistly locate the picture you want as your desktop background.

2) Then double click the image to take you into Windows Picture and Fax Viewer as the default picture viewer. Once there right click anywhere on the picture and click Set as Desktop Background from the pop up menu.

And there you have it. The image is now your new desktop background.

Option 2

Then right click on the image and select Set as Desktop Background

And there you have it. The image is now your new desktop background.

Option 2 is a slightly quicker way of doing it as you don't really need to view the entire image in Windows Picture and Fax Viewer as long as you can see the thumbnail of it or you are in Filmstrip view.

To enable the thumbnail or filmstrip file view
In the picture folder click on the menu view and then click on the option Thumbnails or Filmstrip from the drop down menu. Or you can find the view icon on your tab menu.

NOTE: Just remember that if your image is in a 4:3 aspect ratio, such as 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024, it will be distorted and stretched if you are using as a background on a widescreen monitor.

Older 4:3 monitors (square monitors) use sqarish image resolutions such as 800x600, 1024x768 and 1280x1024.
Newer widescreen monitors use widescreen image resolutions such as 1152x864, 1600x900, 1680x1050 and 1920x1080.

Samsung screen is not calibrated properly. There is a line on the right side of the screen that I can't get rid of.


Unfortunately the line didn't show up in the video.

1) New LCD screen?
Should have an Installation CD Disk that comes with it. Use it if so.
Has the Drivers on it.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

Don't know which version of the Windows O/S you have.
The device in this case is the LCD monitor.

2) What is the NATIVE screen resolution for the LCD monitor.
Look up the specs on the monitor using it's Model Number on back.

For example I installed an HP 2009M 20-inch widescreen monitor, along with the 26-inch RCA ENV HDTV I use for a monitor.

I had to use the drivers from the disk, but could still not set the native resolution in Display Properties.
There is an alternate resolution to the native one that can be used.
The drivers from the disk made it so.

The 20 inch widescreen is 1600 x 900 (Pixels)
The 26 inch HDTV is set at 1360 x 768 (Pixels)

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
In the Display Properties window click on the Settings tab.

What is the Screen resolution setting? What is it supposed to be?
The Slider on the line is clicked on with the left mouse button, left mouse button held down; then the Slider is slid to the left to decrease screen resolution, or to the right to increase with the mouse.

Color quality should be set to High (32-bit)

1) Installing software (Drivers) from the Installation disk, (Or from the monitor manufacturers support website);
And,
2) Setting the screen resolution;

doesn't help, replace the monitor cable with a known to be good one.

Still no? Your LCD monitor is going out.

Just got widescreen its bstill 4.3


Hi, I'm thinking that you could try changing your resolution in your display settings. You can right click on your desktop and select properties at the bottom or personalize if you are using vista. You can then select Display settings and click on the settings tab at the top which will show you the resolution that you have currently set. You can try moving the slider to the right or left and you will see the result before you decide to click ok. This all depends on whether your graphics inside your pc can support the resolutions of your new wide screen monitor. I hope this helps. Good luck. Andrew

How to connect 3 LCD monitors to a computer


Some cards can send 2 outputs that is split by the cable, which is connected to 2 monitors. Generally speaking though, most just split the image up

If you're not sure if your output supports multiple monitors off one output, it's almost certain it doesn't.
There is USB 2.0 to DVI, HDMI and VGA Multi-Display Adapter
resolutions of up to 1600 x 1200 Allows for effortless multitasking

How to clean LG W2284F-PF 22" Widescreen PC Monitor


I use TufStuf to clean mine and besides being non liquid (is a foam), it makes the surface anti-static, so dust cannot stick to it. Or you may try a LCD cleaner kit like this.

I can't get my screen to view properly. It's a wide screen, and it's stretching my images to fit the screen. It used to display properly, but somehow it got shifted to this new "stretched" view....

  • After this go to the display tab and check ur visualization & your color bit tabs.
