Acer x213W - setting the resolution

\015 I just set up a a new Acer monitor (x213w). The product specs indicate that the resolution is 1680x1050; however my display settings do not give this as an option. As a result, photos, etc seem to be stretched. Is there a way to set a customized resolution setting?\015\012lp\015

Answers :

Sorry about the delay. I also just purchased an Acer x213w and had some trouble setting up my computer in order to achieve the optimum resolution of 1680x1050.

I'm using an HP Pavilion m7170n, so it's a bit old and thus could not support this widescreen resolution. However, my computer comes with an ATI Radeon graphics card and, upon contacting HP Support, was allowed to download ATI's "Catalyst Control Centre". After installation, these drivers added the option of selecting a screen resolution of 1680x1050 from Desktop properties.

So this is my solution to you: simply google your graphics card along with 1680x1050 driver and hopefully you'll be able to download a driver update which does the same for you as it did for me.
Make sure that your graphic card resolution setting and your monitor setting match.
