I have a dell Optiplex gx260. I bought a nice big Acer 23"monitor 1920x1030 but the max resolution in the graphics properties is 1280x1024 so I get a stretched screen or a poor resolution


jenny_beech

The resolution 1920x1030 is not a standard resolution. Also at the time this computer came out you did not have monitors this big ether. So you most likely will not be able to get 1920x1030 on this computer. However if you install the drivers for the monitor on the computer you should atleast get the right aspect ratio so you have poor resolution. You should have a CD with the drivers on in it. The llink below will show you haw to install them maually in Windows 7 if the drivers are not in an installer. Let me know if you need the steps for Windows XP.

DISPLAYS ARE SIDEWAYS STRETCHED


This problem is because, when you formatted your PC, you have installed improper display driver of your PC model. This is also because of less capacity display/graphics card.

I just bought an X223W Acer LCD monitor. The texts appear blurred on the screen. What adjustment do I need to make it sharp? Thanks.


You probably need to up the screen resolution.
Start/Control Panel/Display/Settings tab/Screen resolution.
1024X768 minimum.
While you are in the click the advanced button then click the monitor tab. Your refresh rate will most likely by 60 Hertz. Down below that you will see a "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display" check box. Check it. Now click the drop down arrow for the screen refresh rate. Set this to the highest setting there. This will stop the flicker that gives a lot of people headaches when they spend a long time at their computer.

How can I change aspect ratio on acer 19"monitor. The picture is not real ..it is stretched Thank You


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.

2 problems: 1. Is there a way to make the images on my 19 inch acer lcd monitor not appear stretched? 2. How do I get a screen resolution of 1440 x 900 (It's not one of the options in my display...


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.

Widescreen 22" monitor won't stretch to fit screen


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.
