Question about Acer X191WSD Monitor

2 Answers

Max resolution? I can't seem to get windows to adjust to the max resolution of this monitor (1440x900); it's not one of the resolutions offered in the display settings, nor can I access the properties of my monitor (it just says default monitor and the properties tab is greyed). According to a friend I have to get a driver for the monitor, but there is not one on the disc that came with it, nor can I seem to find one online. How can I get this monitor to its best resolution?

Re: Max resolution?

It is very possible that your video card doesn't support the wide screen resolution, especially if it is more than 2-3 years old.

I have installed viewsonic va1716w monitor using windows xp. I am unable to set its resolution to 1440X900. from display properties it going from 1024X768 to 1280X1024

It is possible that the video driver cannot support 1440X900 resolution.
Try installing the latest video driver and then try the higher screen resolution.

How do I get my gateway fpd1975w tft lcd monitor to not stretch images images across the screen?

You need to make sure your computer's display resolution is set to 1440x900, which is the monitor's native resolution. Other resolutions will result in fuzzy displays or, as you're seeing, distorted images.

Right-click on an open area of the Windows desktop (that is, not over any icons), then select "Properties" from the pop-up menu. Click the "Settings" tab and you'll find a slider adjustment to set the resolution. If 1440x900 is not offered as a resolution, you'll need to upgrade your video card (or add a video card if you have a motherboard with integrated video). Most newer computers support that resolution, but some older systems may only go to 1024x768.

Thanks for using Fixya!
