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.
create custom resolution
horizontal pixels : 1440 vertical lines 900
refresh I belive is either 75 or 60. Whichever looks better
scan type: progressive
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.
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.
check in your computer graphic drivers are installed correctly. If installed then when you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode.Set screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply and ok. You can set screen resolution in control panel dispaly property.
in very first you have to check the pc with another display monitor
if display problem still available check the graphic card and video driver. remove the driver and reboot. check display resolution and refresh rate
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.
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.

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.
