It isn't the monitor problem, but the VGA adapter problem. Try reinstalling the VGA driver again

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

My screen resolution is stuck at 640 X 480 and it can't be moved in the display area. Any suggestions?


The resolution of teh screen is controlled by the computer, not the monitor.

Find your display settings in whatever operating system you are using. You will be able to change the resolution there. Easiest way would be to do a Google search for "change resolution in XXXXX" where XXXXX is your operating system. (i.e., Windows XP, Windows 7, Mandrake, etc.)

It seems like you have the newer system board with digital output. the machine enable you connect 2 monitors if you want.
default monitor is 2. that's why you can change the resolution and other setting.
the setting will not affect what you going to do. just leave it alone.

Blank Monitor


Start pressing F8 at boot

When the Windows Startup menu appears, select ENABLE VGA MODE

This will boot the system in 640 x 480 resolution but the video driver will be installed. Once at the desktop, either reset the display to the normal resolution settings or reinstall the video driver.

Hello i purchased a philips 20PFL4122 lcd tv/pc monitor and i have a problem when i set the resolution on my pc to 640/480 as instucted in the user manual the pages are to large to fit the the screen when...


I have bad news for you.

The monitor you bought (Great Price by the way) is working exactly as designed. The problem is the 640 x 480 resolution. Almost all internet content now days is scaled for either 800 x 600 or 1024 x 768 resolution. This is why every time you open a page you have to pan both left and right and up and down to see the entire page.

LCD monitiors are designed for a fixed resolution unlike CRT (TV Tube) monitors that can display different resolutions with equal clarity. This is why when you go to a higher resolution the screen is almost impossible to read.

Since your optimal resolution is 640 x 480, that is the only resolution that displays clearly. That is great for a TV, but sorely lacking as a computer monitor. It is also why the monitor was such a good price (a definite case of you get what you pay for here). So the unfortunate answer is that the monitor will never be satisfactory when used on the internet.

Resolution is too high


You need to start the computer in VGA mode. To do that, turn on the computer. Keep pressing the F8 key every second until a boot menu appears. Select enable VGA mode. The computer will boot to a 640 x 480 resolution. From there you can go to your graphics properties and select a more suitable resolution for your monitor.
