Question about Acer AL2216W LCD Monitor
I've hooked up my PS3 to my monitor via HDMI to DVI. It worked but I have this huge overscan on the right side of the screen. I can't change the H.Position or the V.Position from the monitor. Please help, thank you.
I'm guessing it's the PS3.
When you turn on the PS3, HOLD down your finger on the power button (the one that turns it on/off, NOT the switch in the back) until you hear a second beep while the console is turning on.
It will completely reset your display settings. I have an HDTV and a HDMI, and whenever I switch from one to the other I HAVE to do this or I get no video on screen.

I don't think your doing nothing wrong, but I may be wrong. I would just stick with the other connections. HOpe this helps!?
Please rate solution - Thanks.

There are a varity of HDMI cables, ensure that your version is supported also using the input touch "button" to change the input through VGA, DVI and HDMI.

After you've checked that the video cable is connected properly, make sure that all the pins in the video cable plugs are straight and not broken off. Then test on another PC. Make sure your CMOS battery has not gone flat, as some PC's will fail to load basic drivers if CMOS memory is lost. The battery should show no less than 2.5v, if it's marked 3 volts when tested on a multimeter. If you can't test it, just buy a new one at the supermarket or hardware, usually around $4.00.
Next thing to try is your Video Card . If it is an on board one like most are now, there isn't anything you can do but try another card in an expansion slot or fit a new motherboard. At this point, I'm sad to say, you're better taking it to a PC shop where they will have a few things at their disposal to try.

The cases these days are hard to open, they use plastic finger hooks types, they go in easy but real hard to remove without damageing them.
Use thin flat blade to crack open at the bottom edge so the scratches will not be so noticeable, and work your way around, look out for cables attached to the front bezel also.
