It could be a faulty monitor. It could also be your graphics card. Try the monitor with another PC.

My Acer moniter (P244w) has recently begun to show different colors (red,blue, etc) print. Is it the moniter or something that I can correct on my PC?


This could be a result of multiple different variables. If its a CRT monitor, it could be magnetic interference that is causing it. On an LCD screen, it could be your video signal. Check the cables and make sure they are plugged in tight. Check to make sure there are no power lines or magnets around the monitor as well. Turn off any lighting in the area and see if that affects the monitor. Also you can test the monitor on a different computer to see if you get similar issues. If so, then you may need to replace the monitor or it's cable.

I have tried using the alba lcd22advd as a monitor for my pc but can't view the whole picture on the screen. how do I adjust it so that I can see the whole desktop page?


You might need to fit screen . Click start control panel display desktop you can select a different desktop from the drop down list or a browse button where you can select different pictures this may vary depending on your operating system. Also settings you can change the settings for more or less pixels or from the drop down list pick the appropriate level of color range or troubleshoot also select advanced then general dpi normal , larger or custom settings
always click APPLY after making any changes. Right click in the top toolbar you will see a number of toolbars and options select the menu tab this will add to the Toolbar File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help On the top of the internet page you should see some tabs file edit view favorites tools and help Click on the view tab on the drop down list you should see a zoom % and full screen option. Click a different percentage also a text you might try a different text although this will not increase the of the page only the text fonts inside it
There might be a menu button on the monitor where you can adjust reduce / expand the screen s usually located on the underside of the monitor of course this will depend on your brand of monitor.

Hope this helps.

My screen has shrunk, there is a black frame around it that i cant get rid of. Iv tried changing the resolution and re-starting my computer nothong has helped


Use the OSD (On Screen Display) controls on your monitor to change the "vertical-size' and "horizontal-size" of your picture.

Then, try a different monitor, to see if your monitor is the problem, or if your video-card is the problem.

My scren is not showing my info bar on the bottom and there is a one and a hlf inch black line on the right of my screen and ahalf ince black line on the upper portions of my screen and my screen itself if...


You can adjust your display through 1 of two ways.
1. Somewhere on your monitor are buttons that allow you to adjust your screen position, ( left- right-up-down, widen / stretch in both direction, up & down at the same time & left & right at the same time. If you still have the manual for the monitor it will explain how to do this. Every monitor is not the same & each monitor has their own way to adjust monitor positions.

2. This might be a bit harder but all you'll need is youe mouse.
Find an emty space on your desktop, ( yeah I know it's messed up right now, did I mention this would be harder?).
I want you to right click once on your desktop & that will open a small pop-up menue. Left click once on Properties

You have just opened your display Properties. ( I need to mention just like the monitor adjustment screen is different from one to another, your video card will also be different.) My instructions should be close for you to adjust your screen.

So you have Display Properties on your screen. Click the settings tab, than click the Advanced button. Here click the Adapter tab. Look down & you'll see a button ( List All Modes).
Click it. The mode screen will open. There is a scroll bar on the right. Slide the scroll bar down & pick out the setting you want.
Most people use setting - 1024 by 768, True Color (32bit), 60 Hertz
Click Ok & than Apply. Your screen should adjust it's self.
If it does not, than someone messed with the monitor adjustments & you'll have to re-adjust from the monitor.

Good luck!

Video is scrambled


It's probably something to do with your video card. The card could need replaced or there could be a bent pin in the plug. Check for the bent pins first.
