    I have a wide Acer monitor which was working fine until I tried to set up a (free! old!) 2nd monitor a few days ago. First I got the message that the monitor was out of range, and I changed some settings based on googling the issue. After a reboot, I got the 2nd monitor up but in order to have a readable display on both monitors, I changed some other settings. My main monitor was less crisp, but OKish. Sadly, I did not document the changes I made and can't recall what I did.
    Unfortunately, my computer couldn't detect the 2nd monitor and I gave up and disconnected it from my system. Now my Acer is a blurry mess. I've tried adjusting the custom scaling settings to no avail. Various settings change the size from OK to huge, but all versions are very blurry. [The recommended screen resolution makes everything too small. Software without a zoom feature is uncomfortable to read.] There is the ominous message that changing the scaling may make it difficult to go back to the original settings.
