Re: Drivers for the Acer LCD monitor X193W under Windows...
The acer LCD monitor is plug and play.You don't need a driver.But unless you have a graphics card that supports at least 1440x900 you have problems. Also if your card has a div connection, use that instead of the analog connector, The monitor comes with that connector. Use the old one to connect a second CRT monitor if you want. Don't connect both to the lcd monitor and to the computer unless you are using a second monitor. Like everything these days, every purchase seems to need an upgrade of sorts, On board graphics **** anyway. Buy at least a 128 MB graphic card with a digital connector and more RAM never goes astray.....

Then look for the driver for your monitor. You will see that the driver only lists versions of the Vista O/S as those that will work with the driver. When XP is not able to load the correct driver the system will identify and load the driver as a Plug & Play Monitor. This means that you will be able to get some functionality out of your monitor. but you will not be able to get all of the resolutions that the monitor is capable of running. If you just purchased the monitor and were told that it will work correctly with XP, you may want to take it back to the dealer you bought it from. Failing that you will either have to upgrade your O/S, or give up some of the functionality of the monitor.
Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue.
Should you need further information or assistance please do not hesitate
to let us know.
that problem its a hardware failure, so you can't do much with drivers and softwares.
that happens usually when some filters (electronic component) fail so y best advice is take the monitor to a shop for proper fix
1) Monitors do not care what operating system you are running, otherwise I wll not br able to fix the monitors if I need to have all the operating system installed in my PC or MAC. You must have correct driver for the video card installed in the your PC.
2) What message are you getting on the screen?
3) User manual: http://retrevo.com/support/Acer-X193W-Monitors-manual/id/7197ag005/t/2/
Starting on page 15 are the directions for the monitor controls. Page 17 indicates a "RESET" feture to Clear the Old-Statuses of "Auto-Configuration". There are quite a number of setting for this monitor.
First, make sure that it has found you exact monitor, if not install the drivers for the monitor and see if that helps. Also check the specs on the monitor and make sure it can go to the size you are selecting
What service pack of windows xp are you running? Also, do you have your old monitor, if so, then plug it in and see if the same problem occurs. If not , go under the settings for your graphics card (not windows display options) and see if there can be a correction made to the settings for your monitor. Also, try going to microsoft.com and updating your computer (it's free) and you'll probably get the required driver to fix the problem from them. Check under your control panel and see if you have automatic updates turned on, if so you may want to limit what updates are to be installed by allowing updates but you choose which one's to install.

The resolution issue you are describing sounds like a video card driver issue. You must determine what video card or chipset you have and apply the appropriate driver. The Acer x193w monitor is plug and play, it will display whatever the OS sends to it provided it is within it display range and 1440x900 is definitely within that range.
To my knowledge, it is compatible and certainly would work with XP. Since this monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs make is compatible for most video cards or even a built-in video of the PC. If for some reason the Acer X193W would not work with your Windows XP PC, possible reasons are:
Screen Resolution and/or Screen refresh Rate of the PC's Display Properties too high, try lowering them down;
hardware fault either on the monitor or video card;
incorrect/missing drivers of the video card;
it is being hooked as a secondary monitor and the dual/twin view is not activated.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
