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,

John Fakan

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.

All Acer Laptops Compatible wih all Acer LCD Monitors ? Is there any thing specific to look into when an LCD Monitor has to be Purchased to be connected to an USB Port of an Acer Laptop?


You can hook up any brand of monitor to your Acer laptop.

The only thing you may have to check for is that the connector on the back of the Acer (and all laptops for that matter) is a VGA type. This is the older style of monitor connector. Some new monitors come with a HDMI connector. All you need to do is buy an adaper, put that on the end of the cable and plug it in.

When you get the monitor plugged into the laptop and powered up then you will need to go into you display setting and check to see the external monitor is detected and how you want to use it. You can extend your desktop ie make you screen size cover or use both monitors. You can also set it to put your desktop out to the monitor and perhaps one or two other options depending on your laptop model. Once you have it setup it should use those setting automatically the next time you plug a monitor in.

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.

Analog Power Saving Mode Problem!


Have you checked you power saving options in Control panel.
If this is a desktop, unless you are a energy miser, I would change your power saving options to never on all options, turn off hibernation and suspension for when you are playing games.
You can find this in control panel under power Options.
Let me know if this helps.
Thank you

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.
