Question about Acer Computers & Internet

Setting up monitor

I just bought an Acer AL2216 LCD monitor and am trying to set it up to run from my Toshiba laptop. The Acer seems to be in 1680 x 1059 mode and my laptop can only get up to 1440 x 900. That means the image on the Acer is not filling the display area. Also, the aspect ration is noticeable different between the two displays -- normal on the laptop and wide and squat on the Acer. The instructions that came with the Acer don't help me.

Can you point me in the right direction for taking advantage of my new display?

Thanks,

Does your Acer have an Intel Display Adapter? If so, right click on an empty spot on your desktop, point to graphics options , and then panel fit.

Purchased acer al2216w lcd monitor off ebay. turned it on and it had a vertical red line running from top to bottom near the right hand side.i started to copy a dvd and the screen went black with line...


The screen is bad, verticle lines, red or pink hue etc. is indicative of a bad screen or there maybe a problem with the data cable you are using to attach to the computer. Try another cable first, if the problem persists, the lcd panel is failing.

Trying to connect Acer X213W monitor to Acer 3613 laptop. First Q-My laptop does not support 1680 x 1050 resolution, can I still use the monitor?Second Q- I can't seem to locate where to connect (hardwire)...


1. Yes, the monitor will just display the resolution set by your laptop.
2. There should be a VGA port on your laptop, it's a trapezoid shape with 3 rows of 5 holes and usually blue. Since your monitor only has a DVI cable, you need to get a DVI to VGA adapter to be able to plug your monitor into this spot.

1440 x 900 setting for monitor means I can't see my whole desktop on my toshiba laptop...


Not all laptops display adapters will allow the individual settings for a screen and a monitor to take effect correctly.
This happens especially when one is a widescreen and the other is a standard screen.
It seems your settings are taking effect on both screens at once instead of on each screen individually.
I assume you have adjusted te display sizes in your display settings ?
If so, did you adjust each display separately ?
You may also have to see if your display adapter has the most correct drivers. That may help.
