    Make sure the VIS (visual image size) is set to match the output of your video card. If your new monitor VIS is larger than what your VIS on your computer can handle they you need to scale back the VIS to a smaller VIS that you can accept. Make sure you visit ACER and see if there is any Monitor driver or software to aid you with your monitor setup. Also I would visit the site where your system or your video card is made by and get the most updated video drivers for it.

    Example: Monitor max is 1900x1600
    Example: System max is 1440x900 this is what you set it at. If it still looks bad then you have to go lower. If you're not happy then replace the video card in your system with one that matches your monitor.
