Question about Acer Computers & Internet

We just bought an Acer LCD 18.5 inch computer monitor, and we've followed the instruction to the best of our understanding. We have windows XP. We have nothing, no screen just a flashing blue light on the monitor. Any suggestions?

Is this brand new or used? It acting like it is not getting the video signal from the computer, so you should try it with another PC first and make sure you do not have any bent pins on the video cables.

Most new can now a days. In any case, took a quick look at your specs and simply connect to PC. Then choose input from TV. Like VGA, HDMI, depending on cable paring you choose for your PC video card. VGA is usually the easiest.

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.....

No Signal


Probably the settings on the computer graphics card output.
You need to selct the external screen.

Just to be sure it's not a screen fault, are you able to test it on another PC (desktop, not laptop)?

Al1917w lcd monitor resolution problem


I have the same problem! Here's what I did: Go into the Display control panel, go to SETTINGS, click on ADVANCED, and then on the ADAPTER tab, then on LIST ALL MODES. There are several 1400 settings. Try them out and see which one is best for you.
