Question about Acer 22" X223w LCD Monitor

Acer X223W flickers using DVI cable, but ok with VGA!!??

OK guys, i just got this monitor like few days ago!
my video card: ATI Radeon X1650SE
Running Vista, i have installed all the drivers needed and did everything! What i am trying to ask for help is that my screen flickers like every 10 minutes or so, i tried to reduce the frequency in the ATI Catalyst Center, and it's fine after, but when i restart the computer, it flickers again, so i have to do the work all over again(which go into the ATI Center and change the frequency) in order to make it not flicker, and i don't really wanna do that every single time i turn on the computer.
Anyone knows what happened???

    Same problem here.. when I use the DVI the monitor keeps flickering on and off, and especially when there is more motion it gets worse, sometimes to the point where it's black more than not. Anyone ever find a solution to this problem??

    I have a new H243H and the same flicker happens in DVI running Win XP Pro SP3. No solution so far.

Your problem is not the drivers or hardware it is in your settings. Goto windows hardware settings for your monitor. Look down where it says refresh rate. Write that number down then go to the manufactures web site. Enter in your favorite search engine your monitor model and to to the manufactures site. Check to see what they recomend as your optimum and maximum refresh rates. Pay attention to the screen size also this plays a huge role in performance and out of sink refresh rates. Just out of coureosity are you overclocking your cpu or ram?

Its the usb, if u connect the monitor via the standard port, the vga port, it will work. If your monitor only have an dvi cable you can fix that by an adapter. That adapter should be an DVI to VGA.

Good luck to you

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

Not Good..
After you've checked that the video cable is connected properly, make sure that all the pins in the video cable plugs are straight and not broken off. Then test on another PC. Make sure your CMOS battery has not gone flat, as some PC's will fail to load basic drivers if CMOS memory is lost. The battery should show no less than 2.5v, if it's marked 3 volts when tested on a multimeter. If you can't test it, just buy a new one at the supermarket or hardware, usually around $4.00.
Next thing to try is your Video Card . If it is an on board one like most are now, there isn't anything you can do but try another card in an expansion slot or fit a new motherboard. At this point, I'm sad to say, you're better taking it to a PC shop where they will have a few things at their disposal to try.

You may have problem in the logic board, it uses surface monted components no much chance for DIY repair.
Service manual; http://elektrotanya.com/?q=showresult&megnev=Acer&megnev2=AL2216W&kategoria=monitor&kat2=all

The cases these days are hard to open, they use plastic finger hooks types, they go in easy but real hard to remove without damageing them.
Use thin flat blade to crack open at the bottom edge so the scratches will not be so noticeable, and work your way around, look out for cables attached to the front bezel also.

I have sapphire ati radeon 5570 graphics card. i have aoc 912sw+ 19 inch lcd monitor. how to connect hdmi port of graphics card with monitor?


the HDMI port is for connecting video and sound to a home theatre / surround sound system. I understand that this monitor only has a VGA connector.

The sapphire ati radeon 5570 graphics card has the following ports on the back to connect to a display: DVI (white), VGA (blue) and DisplayPort (the thin slot in the middle). You can use an ordinary VGA cable to connect the card to your monitor.

Unfortunately you cannot connect this card directly to your monitor using the DisplayPort.

Hope this helps

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.

DVI ==> Digital Video Input
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,
and your PC's video-card has both DVI and VGA outputs,
then buy a DVI-to-DVI cable, and use it, for a better picture.
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,

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.

Dvi-dvi connection to a ati radeon hd4670 does not recognise monitor,ie no display. Using a supplied adapter dvi-vga and a vga cable their ia screen display but in device manager it is a generic monitor?


Was there an installation disc that came with it in the package? Some monitors require software to be used. If you don't have the installation disc, you will most likely find the necessary software on the manufacturer's support site: ProLite Support Driver Download Site.

If the monitor software doesn't solve the problem, try using a different DVI cable. More often than not, these types of problems can be traced back to a faulty cable or port. If the DVI port on the monitor is bad, you will have to use the VGA port as you are now or replace the monitor.

If the DVI port on the video card is bad, you will need to replace it. A good way to test this is if you have another monitor with an available DVI port you can connect to the video card.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Viewsonic vp912b lcd display will not work.no DVI


Yes you can but there should be an option in the monitor settings for DVI... Maybe if you go into safe mode and attempt adjusting settings for the ati for the dvi output, from what I hear that monitor is nice with the DVI option would be aa shame to lose that.

i hate to say it, but that sounds like the card is bad.. your best bet is to go to their support website and find out about a manufacturers warranty and send it in.. not much you can do.

For DVI you need to probably upgrade your cheap graphics card, something not that expensive would be a ATI Radeon HD2400 Pro, it'll do. May want to check what pwer supply maybe required on your PC.
