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.

    Do I put the battery back or not

    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..
then reboot..

    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

To play my games I must turn up the resolution to get full screen but only on call of duty could there be a setting on my moniter that may fix this

Its more likely your graphics card that has to be adjusted, RMB on your desktop, LMB on "Settings" and increase the resolution by sliding the bar to the right. If already all the way over to the right, you may need to upgrade your graphics card.

The right hand 1/3 of the screen is blank. Cannot get anything to display

sounds like you have to set the monitor resolution using your computer. right click desktop... graphics options. or Properties. look for Resolution slider. Move it around. press apply. see what happens. if it now fits but is fuzzy. change the refresh rate eg. 60 Hz or 75 Hz. On the monitor itself there is typically a button that allows you to move the image to fit the screen, quite often these settings are inadvertently played with by children ect. look for buttons/ menu's on your monitor itself. play with the settings .

I have a problem with my monitor hpw1907v

Not sure which windows you are using but on my Vista there is also a setting for power saving on the PCI Express video card. Have you tried changing that setting. Not sure if that would be the problem but worth a try. Mine is set for maximum power saving but it hasn't turned off on me except while watchng a video. I haven't played a game so don't know if it affects games. It's under advance power settings \ PCI express \ Link state power managment. Turn it to Off and see what happens. <p> I am guessing you are playing games with a joystick because using a mouse or keys would probably stop the computer turning off the screen. Is there a setting under your game controller preferences for power saving? <p>You might also have a seperate control panel that installed with your video card that lets you change settings outside of Windows. I have Nvidia Control Panel on mine you might have something else. Maybe you can change something there as well.

Analog Power Saving Mode Problem!

Have you checked you power saving options in Control panel.
If this is a desktop, unless you are a energy miser, I would change your power saving options to never on all options, turn off hibernation and suspension for when you are playing games.
You can find this in control panel under power Options.
Let me know if this helps.
Thank you

My moniters screwed

Sometimes this is due to graphics cards, but most of the time it is due to drivers. If it does not happen when you are using your PC for other things the problem probably just lies with the graphic card, driver, and this particular game or any game similar. Drivers are the most notorious! Check your requirements on the game for graphics cards recommendations! Let me know!

Monitor display shifted offscreen

I would be carefull with refresh rates unless you know the maximum and minum rates to apply to your monitor. I solved this problem before for someone and what i recomen is to set your normal desktop to the same resulution as your computer games. That way when you leave your games or reboot it will be the same. See what is happening is when you play your games it is a higher resultion then your normal desktop. And when you log off from it your monitor has to re adjust to the old settings. This will cause a shift. By setting them both the same you will avoid this problem all together.

Input not supported when trying to play a game

the game will need to be set to the same screen resolution as your monitor or the best that suits, beccause of it being widescreen, so look in the graphic or video settings in the game, or change the resolution of your monitor to suit the games highest setting. This is done by right clicking on your desktop, down to properties and then the settings tab in the next window and then move the slider at the screen resolution box.
