How do you adjust brightness on a Gateway ZX4971. There are no buttons on the monitor.


My Gateway monitor instructions refer to buttons located on the right side. The procedure calls for pressing the Auto button first to set the display image for the current screen resolution then pressing the Menu button to open the on-screen display (OSD) menu. You can move through the OSD menu to select parameters such as Picture (brightness).

hi,
Make sure the computers screen resolution it matching the new monitors resolution. Typically the resolution on the computer should be set to max if it detects the new monitor.

Attention autoconfig please wait -- this message keeps popping up in the monitor continuously. it also adjusts the contrast anf brightness some times automatically. please help


Sounds like the "auto config " is built in to your monitor. It selects screen sizing based on the resolution, sync timing, refresh rate, etc... that your video card is adjusting on the computer.

I would suggest you to try changing the resolution in Windows and see if still receive the alert.

For more information on Screen resolution and display on monitor, check the below Microsoft Help & How-To Articles:

1:
Change screen resolution :-

3: Troubleshoot monitor and video card problems :-

If it is doing it often and you are not changing screen resolution I would say the monitor itself might have issues. It's possible your display driver may be corrupted. I would suggest you to download and install the latest drivers for the Monitor from the manufacturer's website.

For more information on Updating a Driver and fixing driver problems, check the below Microsoft Help & How-To Articles:
1: Update a driver for hardware that isn't working properly

2: Tips for fixing common driver problems
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Tips-for-fixing-common-driver-problems

Check the plug and cable, look for bent pins or pins pushed in.
Are you using one of those DVI/VGA adapters? If your monitor has dual inputs (DVI & VGA) have you tried using the other input?

Anyway you could check if the issue exists when the monitor is connected to another PC? Or maybe try another monitor on your PC?

Microsoft .Net framework 2.0 (86) not found


This is probably a fairly easy fix.
Try the following.

You will need:
1.) another computer with internet access
2.) A USB flash drive with about 1 GB of free space

Go to this website: www.acerpanam.com
on the left-hand side click on drivers and downloads
Select desktop from the options displayed
then it will ask you for your series, usually aspire, but NOT always, check your model number, it will start with something like AS or EX or a V for veriton.
Then select your model number from the list displayed.
You will then see the drivers displayed below.
Download and save the ones you need, Lan driver, the video driver, etc.
Then, for the monitor, select monitor from the list, then at the bottom select the X series, then the X193W model and the driver is displayed.
Download this and put it on the computer that the monitor is connected to, should resolve the issue.

ACER with Dell 24" monitor


If it is a Dell Ultrasharp 2408WFP it can display a max of 1920x1200.

Mirage 3 is integrated graphics I believe and integrated graphics have no business running such HD resolutions such as 1920x1200. It will choke or refuse to do that resolution generally.

Other 24" Monitors can do a max of (1920x1080) which is basically 1080 HD resolution. You need to find which monitor you have, what its max resolution is, and then find what the max resolution is that your SiS Mirage 3 can output.

My acer laptop with windows xp will not allow me to select the optimal resolution for my samsung moniter. How do I fix this?


The Samsung SyncMaster 730b is a 17-inch analog and digital TFT-LCD monitor delivering crisp, clean text and bright, vivid colors. This display offers a 600:1 contrast ratio, 300 cd/m2 brightness, 1280 x 1024 resolution, 160/160 degree viewing angle, scanning frequency of 30-81 kHz horizontal and 56-75 Hz vertical and 0.294mm pixel pitch
The SyncMaster 730b display offers the option of using either a digital or analog interface for viewing images and text. The Digital Video Interface (DVI) ensures a shaper, cleaner image and a more accurate representation of the original video source. Since video starts out digital in a PC graphics card, the digital output is directly interfaced to the digital input of the LCD panel and always provides the optimum quality image. In addition, no adjustments are required with a digital display, even when randomly changing resolutions. Input connectors for this display include 15-pin D-sub and DVI-D. Available in black, the SyncMaster 730b delivers a maximum of 16.2 million colors. The monitor is Windows Plug and Play DDC 2B compatible
The important stuff here would be the following:
(1) 30-81 kHz horizontal and 56-75 Hz vertical
(2) SyncMaster 730b delivers a maximum of 16.2 million colors
(3) 1280 x 1024 resolution
nVidia card settings should not exceed these monitor parameters. The monitor is not designed for more performance output without increasing liability toward failure. ?. Put your card settings, under the nVidia tab, at the following:
(a) Refresh rate set at 75 Hz
(b) Set colors at 16 million
(c) Set resolution slightly less than 1280 x 1024
It?s quite possible your monitor is at fault, but start with its optimal parameter settings for the display card first. The display card probably exceeds the monitor?s capabilities. Hopefully, this will stabilize your PC session and the blank outs cease if hardware is not faulty
