Win XP with Acer LCD" X193w Monitor Display Resolution problem?

Have gone into Display proberties setting and it tell me that I have

Display: Acer 1455 on VIA/S3G UniChrome Pro IGP

It will only let me use 800 x 600 (32 bpp) and 1024 x768 (32 bpp).

When I go to use the 1024 x 768 I get a small windows screen with a blue back ground showing around it.

The monitor needs a setting of 1280 x 1024 to run.

How do I fix this?

Thanks Fe'

First, make sure that it has found you exact monitor, if not install the drivers for the monitor and see if that helps. Also check the specs on the monitor and make sure it can go to the size you are selecting

Input not supported error


The native resolution for the x193w monitor is 1440x900. The monitor will only allow certain resolutions. You may need to create a custom resolution using the nvidia control panel.

I plugged my monitor into another computer i have and the start up screen pops up but then it goes black and says " input not supported"


You need to set the video output of the PC to the native resolution of your monitor: 1440 x 900 @60Hz. You are getting the meaasage because the resolution is too high for the monitor to display.

What is the recomended resolution display setting for my Acer X193w monitor


Hi there,

A computer monitor is made of pixels (short for "picture element").



Monitor resolution is measured in pixels, width by height. 640 x 480 resolution means that the screen is 640 pixels wide by 480 tall, an aspect ratio of 4:3. With the exception of one resolution combination (1280 x 1024 uses a ratio of 5:4), all aspect ratios are the same.

Hope this initial information helps. Let me hear from you again for any clarifications.

Thank you for using fixya.com

What should my screen resolution be


The maximum resolution for the Acer X193W LCD Monitor is 1440 x 90, which is a really good resolution range. It will depend also on what kind of graphics/video card and motherboard your computer has which can help determine if you can use the Acer at that maximum resolution.

Acer's x193w killing my eyes..please help


First off, LCD monitors have what is called a 'native resolution' and that is why it is recommended to be at 1440 x 900. That is the resolution they work best at. My first suggestion is to try to move the monitor closer to you. If that is not possible, try right-clicking on your desktop, click on the Properties tab (That is where you change the resolution. I am doing this for a Windows XP machine - if you are running Vista please let me know and I will try to walk you through it there). Click on the "Advanced" button and in the "General" tab, there should be a "DPI Setting" drop down box. There is usually 96 DPI and 120 DPI. Try 120 DPI and see if that helps.

Second, try using your monitor's menu settings to help the color settings. On your monitor there is a "Menu" button of some sort. Press that and select "Acer eColor Management" and try "Text Mode" to see if that is easier on your eyes. You can also manually adjust the screen and lower the strength of the red color by picking "User" instead of "Acer eColor Management" and selecting the icon that looks like a pyramid of 3 dots. Try adjusting the Red slider and see if that helps.

Acer x193w on win xp woulnt go above 800x600 resolution


The resolution issue you are describing sounds like a video card driver issue. You must determine what video card or chipset you have and apply the appropriate driver. The Acer x193w monitor is plug and play, it will display whatever the OS sends to it provided it is within it display range and 1440x900 is definitely within that range.

Windows XP Pro. driver for the acer LCD Monitor X193W


Hi,

To my knowledge, it is compatible and certainly would work with XP. Since this monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs make is compatible for most video cards or even a built-in video of the PC. If for some reason the Acer X193W would not work with your Windows XP PC, possible reasons are:
  • Screen Resolution and/or Screen refresh Rate of the PC's Display Properties too high, try lowering them down;
  • hardware fault either on the monitor or video card;
  • incorrect/missing drivers of the video card;
  • it is being hooked as a secondary monitor and the dual/twin view is not activated.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
