Hi All,

I have a white Macbook (C2D) hooked up via an mini VGA adapter to a 22" Acer X223W. All is well, except when I set the monitor to its native resolution (1680x1050) the right edge of the screen shifts to the middle of the monitor. Every other resolution takes up the full space. When I identify displays, it appears that the macbook is somehow identifying part of the monitors screenspace as its own because I see the red square stretching over. I have tried several different options, to no avail. Right now I have shifted the horizontal settings as far as they will go, but it still leaves a gap of of about two inches. Very frustrating, any ideas?

First, try to go with using DVI rather than VGA. After that, make sure you have the display preference set for "mirror" rather than "extended desktop" mode.

Regards.

Have you tried adjusting the hertz? My macbook does this with my Vizio if I don't change the hertz from 60 to 65. Should be right under the tab for adjusting the resolution.

It's a pain, but keep messing with it, you'll get it working right. I had to do silly things like turn the monitor off and on and restart my macbook with the monitor plugged in. Took me awhile, but after adjusting the hertz, turning off the monitor and restarting, I got mine to work.
