Question about Acer X193W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Just bought an Acer AL2216WBD flat panel monitor. Have an old Dell computer; "Jewel Quest" game loaded. When I plugged in the new monitor, tried to play the game. Good sound but no picture. Only "input not supported" floating around. No menu to get out of the game; can only do so by pressing CTR ALT DEL. I am by no means computer literate! Is there an easy fix?

The resolution is incorrect for that new monitor , it does not support it, attach the old monitor reduce the display resolution and then hook in the new monitor, up the resolution until it fails again and do nothing it will reset to the last good display resolution and you can leave it there.
hope this helps

I have been given a DELL8400 computer with a Acer AL506 monitor, when I turn it on a out of range message comes up, how do I fix this..


The Acer monitor was not likely used with that computer, they were just mated together.

Assuming the video card is the original Dell, Download the Dell video driver from Dell for that CPU that you have, and install it, use a different monitor if you have to load it. Try attaching the Acer monitor when that system is shut down, and boot up. It should see it as a plug and play monitor and then auto select the monitor settings. The old monitor setting is what was stored in the computer inf file.

With the driver installed it will match a driver to that monitor.

If the card is not original Dell, then you need that video card's driver installation file. You may need to resort to doing a search for the first part of the data on the DB15 header if there is no clear manufacturer tag with number on the card itself. Such will be the case with some Nvidia cards made for other vendors like AOpen.

Then you can right click "Properties" and select the screen resolution you want.

it is more critical to have the video card driver than the monitor, however the Acer driver may have some features that are not accessed by the Dell driver.

Trying to download/play games but get this message: Input not supported - then my computer FREEZES and I have to reboot. This a brand new Dell Computer (but not monitor - monitor is 6 years old).


This is cause the game you are trying to play is configured to play in a high resolution but your Monitor not supporting this resolution. If you havent try to play older games, try to play an older game and see if this is happening again. Thanks. Please Rate my Solution.

Acer AL2216WBD LCD Monitor Problem


If your computer does not have a video card that supports the correct resolutions for the widescreen monitors, then your picture may get stretched. Much like watching normal tv programs on a an hd set. It will eitther strech or cut off the picture.
Try different settings in you computer display settings.

Acer Monitor Display of text and image is not sharp


This might seem obvious, but is your video card output set to the native resolution on the monitor? If not, it will look fuzzy. Try 1680x1050, if you don't know the monitors native resolution.
No need to use anything higher than a 60hz refresh rate either.

Screen prob.


For flat panel systems there are 2 inputs. DVI using the white cable and VGA. by default flat panels are set to DVI input. hit the menu button on the screen and there should be an option there to change the input video. if this will not work it could be a problem on the video port on your acer computer or it could you might need a new VGA cable.
