Acer x213W - setting the resolution

I just set up a a new Acer monitor (x213w). The product specs indicate that the resolution is 1680x1050; however my display settings do not give this as an option. As a result, photos, etc seem to be stretched. Is there a way to set a customized resolution setting?

    Thanks MYOB; but I don't know where to go to check the graphics card resolution.

  • lprospero May 11, 2008

    Thanks. I was in the right place then. It does not include the optimal resolution for my monitor and does not appear to allow me to customize it. Oh well.

    J'ai le même problème mes photos sont écrasées....Y a t'il une solution pour remédier à ça?...Merci....

    I get the same result. I just got an Acer X213W monitor and I was able to set my laptop to let use the Acer as the primary when it is plugged in. However, it does not show the entire screen at the bottom or the right side. I've been trying to figure out how to shrink the screen on the monitor a bit to reduce the size but no luck. Any good ideas? Thanks in advance for any help!!!

Sorry about the delay. I also just purchased an Acer x213w and had some trouble setting up my computer in order to achieve the optimum resolution of 1680x1050.

I'm using an HP Pavilion m7170n, so it's a bit old and thus could not support this widescreen resolution. However, my computer comes with an ATI Radeon graphics card and, upon contacting HP Support, was allowed to download ATI's "Catalyst Control Centre". After installation, these drivers added the option of selecting a screen resolution of 1680x1050 from Desktop properties.

So this is my solution to you: simply google your graphics card along with 1680x1050 driver and hopefully you'll be able to download a driver update which does the same for you as it did for me.

Make sure that your graphic card resolution setting and your monitor setting match.

I cannot get good resolution in my Hannspree HF229H, what can I do???


The resolution you should be getting is 1680x1050. Under Windows 7, right click on your desktop then open 'Screen Resolution'. If the resolution is set to anything other than 1680x1050, set it to that. If that setting is not available then it is possible that your video card does not support that resolution. This would only effect old computers. If the resolution is set to 1680x1050 but you don't have the proper resolution onscreen, try adjusting the monitor settings using the buttons on the bottom of your monitor. Hope this help and have a nice day!

You need to set your PC video output resolution to the native resolution of this monitor, which is 1680X1050 @60Hz.
Right click on the desk top, the display properties will come up, click on setting tab, then you will see resolution setting choice.

Screen resolution for Acer P221W


1680x1050.
It also depends on the video card how high the resolution can go.
That's the max resolution though.
Here's the complete specs for your monitor.

Hi There! My Acer x223w monitor is floating a "Input Not Supported" box that will not go away any suggestions?


The documentation for this monitor should list its supported resolutions, and you will need to attach another monitor that supports a greater (possibly lower or higher) range of resolutions and then set it to one of the supported resolutions for the monitor. The native resolution appears to be 1680x1050, although I cannot find online documentation directly from Acer.

Native resolution suddenly scrolls.


The native resolution for the Acer AL2216W is 1600X1200. It is acting correctly for the resolution you have set it to.

Trying to connect Acer X213W monitor to Acer 3613 laptop. First Q-My laptop does not support 1680 x 1050 resolution, can I still use the monitor?Second Q- I can't seem to locate where to connect (hardwire)...


1. Yes, the monitor will just display the resolution set by your laptop.
2. There should be a VGA port on your laptop, it's a trapezoid shape with 3 rows of 5 holes and usually blue. Since your monitor only has a DVI cable, you need to get a DVI to VGA adapter to be able to plug your monitor into this spot.

one is power one is standard vga and one is a dvi cable, the only time you would need the dvi is for a higher quality of picture. if you do not need the higher quality (ex. you don't watch hd movies, you don't play games with awesome quality gfx, you don't do professional gfx.) you only need the standard vga (the one your used to). [note: you might need to upgrade your video card to use the dvi cable]

Acer Monitor Display of text and image is not sharp


This might seem obvious, but is your video card output set to the native resolution on the monitor? If not, it will look fuzzy. Try 1680x1050, if you don't know the monitors native resolution.
No need to use anything higher than a 60hz refresh rate either.
