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.

What causes my aspect to constantly change? My tv or my cable box?


It could be both.

If you set your TV to Auto, then it will try to 'best guess' the correct picture shape based on what's displayed on screen. That's okay in the lab, but in the real world where there's too much changing then it's not so good.

The other thing could be the box and the TV channel you happen to be watching. If you have the box's aspect ratio set wrong i.e. to a different picture shape to the TV, then it will squash or stretch pictures.

Set your box to match the TV shape. The two main choices are Widescreen (16:9) or the old picture shape 4:3

Set your TV on a fixed aspect ratio: Either Widescreen if it is a 16:9 set, or Normal if it is a 4:3 set.

How to change monitor aspect ratio for acer AL1916


The aspect ratio is expressed as two numbers separated by a colon (x:y). and they actually represent the relation between width and height of (in your case) your monitor.

Did you mean to change the resolution of your monitor? Could you please explain your problem in more detail? What is it exactly you want to achieve?

What is the recomended resolution display setting for my Acer X193w monitor


Hi there,

A computer monitor is made of pixels (short for "picture element").



Monitor resolution is measured in pixels, width by height. 640 x 480 resolution means that the screen is 640 pixels wide by 480 tall, an aspect ratio of 4:3. With the exception of one resolution combination (1280 x 1024 uses a ratio of 5:4), all aspect ratios are the same.

Hope this initial information helps. Let me hear from you again for any clarifications.

Thank you for using fixya.com

I'm using this as an additional monitor for a HP 10" netbook and the picture is stretched & distorted & doesn't fill screen. The vertical adjustment just moves the whole thing up and remains...


Solution goes this way, to maintain the aspect ratio of the monitor, take note of this. Your HP 10inch notebook have different resolution compare to your additional monitor, But I'm sure you selected the dual view mode or the duplicate mode that is why you have distorted display on your additional monitor, to let the additional monitor decide and maximize its resolution, try using the extended view option, you can change the resolution of your additional monitor without affecting the resolution of your 10 inch laptop.

Acer 22 aspect circle, not elipse


You'll need to change your resolution to one of the below to get the correct aspect ratio for a wide-screen display.

1440 x 900
1600 x 900
1600 x 1024
1680 x 1050

You will find these settings in Control Panel / Display / Advanced. If none of the above are options you will need to obtain newer display drivers.

Please let me know if this helps or if I can be of further assistance. Thank you.

Connecting dvi cable straight to acer monitor


The cable box is probably outputting a resolution the monitor is not compatible with. Computer monitor and television resolutions are usually different, and not cross compatible in some cases.

For example, wide screen monitors are usually 16:10 aspect ratio, while TV is usually 16:9 aspect.

The AL2216wbd is a 1680x1050 display, while HD TV is either 720p (1280x720) or 1080i (1920x1080).

If your cable box is set to 1080i that would be too high for the monitor. You will need to set it to output at 720p, and even then you will probably get a vertically stretched picture since the monitor has a taller aspect.

Display appearing stretched


the original image size was probably recorded in 4:3 aspect ratio...meaning your widescreen is a 16:9 ratio size screen and is stretching it outwards to fill the whole screen. If you want the image to look normal.. ie. not short and fat people.... you need to change the picture size in the settings from widescreen 16:9 to normal 4:3 tv in the settings menu most likely...Also most remotes will/should have a button for that.
