Question about Acer AL1916B 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Graphics is horable when I play games like Frank Herbert's Dune

I played with the menu items so much now I don't know the right setting for this monitor. When I press the menu button: Contrast is set at 50/ Brightness is set at 100. The second button I pressed is: Focus is set at 15/ Clock is set at 50. The third button I pressed is: H. Position is set at 50/ V. Position is set at 18. The third button I pressed is: Warm/ Cool/ and User buttons. The next button is language buttons and it is set at English. The next button is OSD: H. Position is set at 50/ V. Position is set at 50/ and OSD Timeout is set at 120. The next button is: Auto Config. The next button is: Info button, which is set at 1024 x 768, H: 49 kHz, V: 60 Hz, and it is permantly set at Analog Input. The next button is: Reset button. And finally the last button is: Exit button. I also was playing in the bios configuration and set the Aperture to 64. I'v also set other settings in the bios and tried to set it back to it's original setting by reformatting the "C" drive and reinstalling windows xp. Can you help me setup my acer monitor so I can play games like Dune.

    Do I leave the battery out while rebooting, and do I put back the battery afterwards.

    I installed the GeForce 7600 GS OC graphics card, and I see the graphics a bit better, but still needs to be improved. In the bios the aperture is set at 256mb

Reset your monitor to its factory settings by using the auto config..
Take the bios battery out of your laptop or desktop and restart with the battery off..

    Try setting it to 512 instead of 256 if you can.. then it should perform better.

    Make sure your advanced settings under troubleshooting in the display controls is set to full

Ram Upgrade!! That is were to start. Also make sure you have some hard drive space and open up paging. Paging uses some of your empty hard drive space as Ram. I don't know what OS you have you can go to your system settings in the control panel. go to advanced tab and in the virtual memory you can adjust you allotted paging space. You might want to also consider lo lowering graphic details in the games you are playing.

It is sad but true that cue club doesn't run perfectly with high graphics card. I don't know why. I played cue club without setuping the drivers. IT ran well. But everytime I set up my agp driver it gets crashed. It didn't happen with only one agp card. I changed at least 10-12 AGP and PCI express. In every situation, I can play the game untill I set up my agp.Whenever I set up my agp it always crashes. Nothing actually worked with me

When ever i click on go to race on need for speed pro street it freeze's

Most of the games that we like is the one has a better graphics and texture. To be able to run/play a specific game, you'll need to support the hardware requirements specially Graphics Adapter (Video Card). Don't get mad when your trying to play a High Graphical Texture game, and it run so slow.
This is some solution to boost your game movement -Go to Option->Video/Graphics->Set it all to low graphical quality, or disable some graphical texture settings..
I hope it will help you..

My computer doesn't work a application program

Make sure your system meets the minimum requirements for the game.
Operating system: 2000/XP Processor:1.0GHz. Memory:256MB Hard Drive: 1.2GB
DVD ROM:8Speed
Video Card:32 MB
Sound Card:direct X 9.0c compatible

If problem is with loading or playing with graphics, there are controls in the game that allow you 'shut down' some of the graphical effects that can help get the game working. Also, shutting down unnecessary programs like instant messengers can free memory needed for game. Right-click items in task area (lower right corner) and exit or close items you don't need during game play.

In-game graphics don't work

Have you updated your video driver?
If that has been done, you can right click on the shortcut icon, go to compatibility and choose to run it under Win SP2 or 3.
That could help with things, if not post a comment and I'll get back to you for further help.

My computer freezes when gaming & the graphics becomes corrupted

As a gamer myself, most issues I had like those ended with me up/downgrading my videocard drivers if it wasn't something like a fan/heat problem. Nvidias' newest driver is the best I've used to date, though I have heard others have had problems with it. get a benchmark utility, if you haven't already. try out some of the other drivers available, if your comfortable doing that. go to nvidia's site and let thier engine detect the proper driver. Best of luck ..
