Question about Samsung SyncMaster 940BE 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Oblong pictures I have just bought this monitor. Photo images are stretched across the horizontal axis making every one look like they have gained 20 lbs. I am using a dellPC with XP Home edition. I have reset the resolution and switched to larger founts which has helped the text resolution dramatically but not the pictures.

The issue here is that you have a low resolution picture and a high resolution display. Windows is "stretching" the smaller, low resolution picture so that it will fit across the larger area, thus distorting it. Right click on the desktop and select properties. Go to the Desktop tab. There should be an item there for position. Is it set to Stretch? If it is, then this is causing the problem. Set it to center, and it should appear fine. If you want to keep this from happening: 1) User higher resolution pictures. 2) Turn down the resolution on your screen (this can be done from the Settings tab of display properties).

Desktop icons stretched horizontally

Sounds like you need to set the screen resolution for the monitor. The computer should recognize each screen individually in the desktop options dialog. If it doesn't recognize the two different screens, you may want to change the resolution when you plug in the monitor.

I bought new monitor Compaq S1922a and picture stretched horizontal. I have HP intel with Vista. How to adjust VGA to make picture normal?

if the whole image is too long you can adjust it from tthe image driver ..it will be in the right side on the task bar near the programs that are opened all the time ..and named like the video card you are using and usually will display when hoovering the resolution in use..open the resolutions and choose one that fits best...and confirm ..
To adjust just the the picture from the desktop ..right click on the desktop..properties..and desktop...in there choose the desktop image ..or change image ..and you will have 3 possibilities for adjusting the picture to fit..center ...stretch..and tile.. see them one by one ...if non of the stile will make it visible in a normal way ..then you should change the picture,,and choose a wallpaper that it is in the same form and big enough to fit....
T change a picture on the wallpaper it is enough to right click on it when its opened ..and choose it to be set as wallpaper from the list of tasks...

Screen stretched out horizontally and distorting picture. None of the settings buttons appear to solve this. I can shift the image vertically or horizontally; but not squeeze it horizontally.

There are adjustments in the size of the items on a screen under the screen properties, settings. If you right click on the desktop screen and then properties you can get there. There is at least one size which causes a distortion of images being displayed. This may be your problem.

Printing black horizontal lines below text/on top of pictures

Check the waste recepticle under where the ink cartridges rest in the home position. Over time, ink sprayed into this cup during cleaning cycles builds up to form a small mountain of congealed ink. If this gets too high, it makes contact with the printhead and drags ink across all your prints. If there is a ***** of ink present, scoop it out with a spoon or a popsicle stick.

Dont get it on you, its messy...

Acer AL2216WBD LCD Monitor Problem

If your computer does not have a video card that supports the correct resolutions for the widescreen monitors, then your picture may get stretched. Much like watching normal tv programs on a an hd set. It will eitther strech or cut off the picture.
Try different settings in you computer display settings.
