If you see the dvd on the laptop and not the monitor:
Your problem is probably with your video card and its settings and not the monitor.
Some video cards wont support dvd playback on two screens at once.
What you have to try is to enable only the external monitor and disable the laptop lcd.
This can be done using shortcut keys on the laptop (usually this involves using the Fn key and one of the F# keys at the same time- the F# key may have a picture of two screens on it or be labeled CRT-LCD)
You can also change the settings in the display properties settings.

Sometimes the display settings as far as resolution are set too high for some dvd players. Lowering the resolution can take care of that problem.

Drivers for the Acer LCD monitor X193W under Windows XP Pro.


The acer LCD monitor is plug and play.You don't need a driver.But unless you have a graphics card that supports at least 1440x900 you have problems. Also if your card has a div connection, use that instead of the analog connector, The monitor comes with that connector. Use the old one to connect a second CRT monitor if you want. Don't connect both to the lcd monitor and to the computer unless you are using a second monitor. Like everything these days, every purchase seems to need an upgrade of sorts, On board graphics **** anyway. Buy at least a 128 MB graphic card with a digital connector and more RAM never goes astray.....

Have you tried booting into "Enable VGA" mode via the "Windows Advance Option" screen? By press F8 before Windows XP loading screen comes up. In this mode the Video Card drivers are disabled. So if your screen appears normal and not white in this Mode then it is your video card drivers which are causing the issue.
