You can hook up any brand of monitor to your Acer laptop.

The only thing you may have to check for is that the connector on the back of the Acer (and all laptops for that matter) is a VGA type. This is the older style of monitor connector. Some new monitors come with a HDMI connector. All you need to do is buy an adaper, put that on the end of the cable and plug it in.

When you get the monitor plugged into the laptop and powered up then you will need to go into you display setting and check to see the external monitor is detected and how you want to use it. You can extend your desktop ie make you screen size cover or use both monitors. You can also set it to put your desktop out to the monitor and perhaps one or two other options depending on your laptop model. Once you have it setup it should use those setting automatically the next time you plug a monitor in.

Sansui no signal


Acer produces a number of LCD computer monitors. Acer's monitors range from 17 inches to 27 inches. Some monitors offer wide-screen viewing, embedded speakers, high-definition visuals, and various display connection ports. Acer computer monitor problems include common issues such as dead pixels, error messages, and blank screens caused by incorrect connections. Some reviewers have also detected image problems with DVD playback on some models.

"Input Not Supported" Error Message Acer computer monitors such as the G24 may issue an "Input Not Supported" error message when users set the display resolution too high. The G24's maximum display resolution is 1920x1200 with a 60Hz refresh rate. Maximum resolutions vary according to the specific monitor model and according to the capabilities of the computer's video card. b> "Input Out of Range" b> Some Acer computer monitors may report an "Input Out of Range" error message due to incorrectly set monitor refresh rates. Much like the display resolution, each monitor also has specific monitor refresh rates with which it is compatible. Blank Screen or "No Signal" Error b> Like other monitors, Acer computer monitors feature color-coded power indicator lights. If the power indicator light shows green, the contrast or brightness levels may be set too low and should be adjusted via the OnScreen Display. If this does not rid the monitor of a black screen, the monitor may be experiencing hardware failure. The "No Signal" or "Check Cable message" may indicate a problem with the monitor's cable connection with the video card. This error may also appear on a blank screen backdrop if the monitor is plugged into the incorrect port on the computer or if the computer is frozen and needs to be rebooted. Faulty power cords or outlets may cause the screen to be black and to show no power indicator color. b> Image Issues b> Some review sites such as CNET have reported problems with streaking and ghosting during DVD playback on some Acer computer monitors such as the AL1931. (A "ghost" is an identical offset image as the primary or desired image.) Unstable or unclear image issues may be caused by incorrectly programmed VGA timings or incorrectly installed monitor drivers. b> Dead Pixels b> Dead pixels and sub-pixels can cause a variety of display enjoyment problems. Acer will only accept returns on LCD computer monitors that have "more than four (4) defective pixels per million pixels." Further, the central area of the monitor may have no more than one defective pixel. Acer does not differentiate in warranty terms between pixels and sub-pixels. Hope this helps.

Acerx193hq monitor keeps turning off only just started doing it purchased march 2009 have to press menu on monitor comes on then goes off again


Hi

Capacitors going bad are causing this problem. Call Acer and let them know. It may still be in warranty, if not it should certainly qualify. Parts age in everything electronic but LCD monitors should have at least 2 years of use before parts begin to change value.

Thanks

Monitor compatibility


It will be compatible with the system, just keep on thing in mind, whatever resolution you set your computer at you may have to keep the ratio aspect active so that way the screen looks properly displayed.

Monitr compatibility


That will plug right in. Your existing monitor has a VGA connection, which matches what you have on this monitor (where it plugs in on the back of the computer you will find a blue connector). Just put this one in it's place.

The industry is moving to DVI, which is a long white connector, but monitors are still coming with the VGA connection anyway. This monitor is DVI capable which means it will be great for your next computer, but you will need to buy the DVI cable separately (not today, but when you eventually get a new computer).

Windows XP Pro. driver for the acer LCD Monitor X193W


Hi,

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.

On mine you can adjust brightness with buttons on the front. The button under the R gets you in, far left to exit.

Got a phone number for ACER? I can't get it to work with WIN2K, just WIN98SE by using powerstrip.
