Looks like a crack in the display

Hello--In the upper right hand corner of our monitor there appears to be a crack in the display. When I first saw it I thought the screen might be cracked, but when you look closely the screen is fine. This crack seems to be something in the background. It started with 1 small line in the upper right corner. Now there are 2 additional lines coming down from the top of the screen approximately 1 to 1.5 inches in from the right side. Any thoughts?

Thank you.

If you change the Windows "wallpaper", does that text go away?

If you connect the LCD monitor to a different laptop/desktop, does the text still appear?

An 'etch-a-sketch' - type image that at quick glance, looks like an elephant, appears in the upper right section of the screen. It isn't captured with print screen. Swapped out monitors to different CPUs....


I did see a similar issue with a Gateway display, the source of the image was the screen is damaged by the cover inside the screen. Basically, the inside frame was scratching the back of the screen making the image to appear until it damages the screen enough to turn off pixels.

Another possible cause are: "burned pixels", some kind of damage (liquids inside the display), the display was hit, or something like that.

The only solution is to replace the display or use it until is breaks (but it will be quite annoying).

What is the best setting on adell 24


The issue is relative to the native resolution of the monitor. in most 24" monitors the resolution is 1920 x 1200. When you get an application that is shown in the upper left corner of the screen, it is most likely set in a page frame of 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768. Also many web pages will display with large amounts of white space on one or both sides.
This you can do to help.
Set the DPI setting in display properties to 120 will help some making small type more readable.
Pages that are in Internet Explorer can be zoomed to appear larger zoom feature in bottom right corner of IE window (or CTRL & + and CTRL & - key combinations)

Lines on upper left corner, inside of screen


its problem with the display cable (not the one you connect to your pc)
open the lcd display and look for a cable that is attached to the front glass display. check whether it is dameged.. it cannot be replaced
you need to replace the whole display that would be better. and cost effective

Display rotation


Hello,

Fixing this is rather simple. Depending on what card you have, you'd need to get to the relevant section within the Advanced Display properties to access a "Rotation" settings page.

Here we go:
  1. Go to Start > Control Panel
  2. Double-click on Display - accesses Display Properties
  3. Click the Settings tab
  4. Click then Advanced tab on the bottom right hand corner.
  5. You'd then see another pop-up property page. Click through the tabs and see if you can find any options/tabs which take you to Display Settings.
  6. You'd then find "Rotation" - from which you'd need to select / apply the required rotation to get it back to normal.
Hope this helps. Do reply in case you need further help.

Thanks!

With most models of these monitors, hold in the menu key for more than 10 seconds.

If the above does not work, call the manufacture tech support. The monitor may need service.

Monitor problem


Melanie, The computers video cards resolution and / or refresh rate is set incorrectly for your monitor. The easiest way to fix this is as follows for Windows 2000 or XP: -While the computer is first starting press the F8 key every second till the Advanced Options Menu appears. -Using the up or down arrow key select the ?Enable VGA Mode? and hit the enter key. -You will be taken to another screen that may or may not have several items to select from. Find your operating system, highlight it and hit the enter key. -Your computer should now load Windows using a generic display mode. Don?t be alarmed if the objects on the screen appear large, this is just temporary. -Log into Windows (if necessary) and you should now see your desktop. -Ignore the popup in the lower right hand part of your screen saying that the display is set very low. Simply right click any clear spot on your desktop and select properties from the menu that appears. -From the Display Properties box that appears click on the Settings tab. -In the screen resolution section (lower left corner) make sure it is set to 1280 x 1024. This is the typical resolution for a 17? LCD but be aware that your monitor will probably be capable of supporting other resolutions. -The color quality box should be set to the highest (most) color setting listed. -Click on the advanced button in the lower right corner. -In the next window click on the monitor tab. -The typical LCD is set to 60 Hertz; however, I have seen where some Acer monitors like 70 Hertz. I would start with 60 for now and change it to 70 if this doesn?t work. -click the OK button twice. -Restart your computer normally and see if it works. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
