New install Acer x223w monitor

Is there any reason that I need to attach the VGA cable if I'm using the DVI cable? The manual seems to indicate that both should be connected.
Many Thanks

You would only need that cable if the other end requires a VGA end. Happy Holidays

I have an Acer Monitor X223w - is it capable of hooking up as a douple monitor to one computer?


Any monitor can be used as the second monitor for a computer. However, your computer's graphics card must have two outputs. Some simpler graphics cards, most on-board video chipsets and all laptops *do not have* two outputs. Please check the back of your computer for two VGA outputs, or one VGA and one DVI output (you can use it by connecting a DVI cable to your monitor, or by plugging in a DVI to VGA adapter).
If your graphics card does not have two outputs, or if your computer uses an on-board video chipset, you can buy another graphics card to replace the one you're using.

Your video card needs to have DVI output port for you to use the DVI cable, otherwise you can just use the VGA cable.
DVI is supposedly t give better pictures due to all digital signals compared to VGA which is analog.

My acer x223w lcd monitor is flickering. When I change the resolution to 800 x 600 it stops. I have updated the driver and tried uninstalling and reinstalling.


hi, have you checked running the monitor on all the outputs? dvi? vga? flickering is caused most times by bad connections either in the video cable, or on the video board, or power board inside the monitor. i know those monitors pretty well, i'm willing to bet if you opened up the monitor and looked at the power supply board, you would probably find worn/blown capacitors. this could very well account for the flickering. electrolytic capacitors store power for parts of the circuit that require lots of power to run. when they go bad(overheat) they pop up at the top, sometimes leak a little fluid. they are replaceable, need to be soldered in, and you can find them at most electronic stores abundantly, but you should check everything else first, the video cables(dvi,vga) before opening the monitor.

I have just installed a Acer LCD #X223W moniter. What do I need to do to get my speakers to work with it? Is there a missing port or do I need a new cable. This moniter has a HDVi cable but the Computer...


Did you give the correct model of the Acer monitor you have?

When I looked up the X223W monitor, I see a monitor with a DVI-D port and VGA port. Only the VGA cable is usually included in the box. If your computer has a VGA port (most older computers that came with only the video chip on the motherboard), you can either use the VGA cable or get a VGA to DVI adapter and use a DVI-D cable (purchase separately). Alternatively, check the specs of your power supply and available card slots and buy a new video card with a DVI port. If you have only a DVI port on your computer, get the DVI cable (the VGA to DVI adapter would work but isn't a good option).

If I read the specs correctly, this monitor doesn't have speakers. You should plug your speakers into the audio out of your computer. If you use the on-board audio you will see at least two jacks (microphone/line in) and audio out (speakers). Many audio cards and some motherboards come with additional jacks for surround sound so check your system information. Audio extension cables are a cheap solution if the speaker cables are too short to reach to your computer.

I hope this helps.

I can not get the higher resolution on my Acer 22in X223W


Monitors have Max resolution. What you call VGA is not really VGA, the standard for VGA is 640X480, SVGA is 800X600 and XGA is 1024X768. VGA and DVI are capable of different "GAs". Consequently you are not able to go beyond the capabilities of your monitor. Right-Click on a blank area of your Desktop and click on Properties. Then click on the Settings tab. Move the slide all the way to the right and that will be the maximum resolution for your monitor.
