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.

Plugged in a new 23 inch LG LCD Monitor and cannot get picture


In additio to the fine help given by Mister.

If you have a DVI output on your computer get the cable for that and this will greatly increase the quality of your display.

Your graphics card should be able to autodetect a DVI monitor and suggest the best display type.

Acer P193W monitor stretched image


What service pack of windows xp are you running? Also, do you have your old monitor, if so, then plug it in and see if the same problem occurs. If not , go under the settings for your graphics card (not windows display options) and see if there can be a correction made to the settings for your monitor. Also, try going to microsoft.com and updating your computer (it's free) and you'll probably get the required driver to fix the problem from them. Check under your control panel and see if you have automatic updates turned on, if so you may want to limit what updates are to be installed by allowing updates but you choose which one's to install. Hope I could help. My e-mail

Press the Select/Auto button. The monitor will then automatically adjust to match the incoming signal and will save that setting in the internal memory of the monitor.

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.

Oblong pictures


The issue here is that you have a low resolution picture and a high resolution display. Windows is "stretching" the smaller, low resolution picture so that it will fit across the larger area, thus distorting it. Right click on the desktop and select properties. Go to the Desktop tab. There should be an item there for position. Is it set to Stretch? If it is, then this is causing the problem. Set it to center, and it should appear fine. If you want to keep this from happening: 1) User higher resolution pictures. 2) Turn down the resolution on your screen (this can be done from the Settings tab of display properties).
