Question about Acer X193W+BD Monitor

Open Question

I'm trying to get my Xbox 360 to play on my monitor while my monitor is also connected to my main computer. The computer is connected to the monitor via a VGA cable, and the 360 is connected via an HDMI cable. However, whenever I try to change the input, the screen flashes black for a moment, then goes back to the the first input. I cannot get it to change to the HDMI channel. What am I doing wrong and how can I fix it?

SOURCE: input not supported when trying to play a game

the game will need to be set to the same screen resolution as your monitor or the best that suits, beccause of it being widescreen, so look in the graphic or video settings in the game, or change the resolution of your monitor to suit the games highest setting. This is done by right clicking on your desktop, down to properties and then the settings tab in the next window and then move the slider at the screen resolution box.

SOURCE: monitor goes black

Sorry to have to tell you this, but this is common in LCD monitors. The reason that it is going black when it boots is for one of two reasons. You either have a bad power supply that powers your LCD or your LCD's backlight is blown. These can be repaired or you can purchase a new one. But if it goes black 9 times out of 10 is because the backlight is bad. These can be repaired!

SOURCE: Acer AL1716 blank screen but powers.

Probably a bad inverter board, the inverter board powers the bulbs that display the image. this is VERY common problem on all LCD tv's,laptops and monitors.

usually a small transformer blows open on the inverter board. the innverter needs to be replaced if this is the this case.

SOURCE: connecting dvi cable straight to acer monitor

The cable box is probably outputting a resolution the monitor is not compatible with. Computer monitor and television resolutions are usually different, and not cross compatible in some cases.

For example, wide screen monitors are usually 16:10 aspect ratio, while TV is usually 16:9 aspect.

The AL2216wbd is a 1680x1050 display, while HD TV is either 720p (1280x720) or 1080i (1920x1080).

If your cable box is set to 1080i that would be too high for the monitor. You will need to set it to output at 720p, and even then you will probably get a vertically stretched picture since the monitor has a taller aspect.

Unless you monitor is HDMI capable I don't think it is possible without some sort of adapter.

How to resolve Xbox 360 disc read errors. Xbox will not play disc.


Is your xbox360 having trouble reading disc? In this guide I will provide some common solutions to help you fix your disc read issues.

1)Remove any memory devices or usb flash drives.
2)If the disc you are using is excessively scratched, this can cause the xbox to have trouble reading the disc. You can use a damp soft cloth to try and clean the disc. Grab the disc by the edges and using a soft damp cloth lightly wipe the disc from the center going outward.

3)Try removing your Xbox hard drive and then play a disc. Turn off the console. Locate the hard drive on the top of your system(depending on how you have it positioned). Press the release button on the hard drive.

If your system can read disc without the hard drive attached then you may need to replace the drive.

4)Clear the Xbox360 cache. Clearing the cache may remove updates to certain games. Keep this in mind.
Go to System Settings in the My Xbox menu. Select Memory, highlight your storage device and select Clear System Cache. Try and play the disc.

If after the above steps you are still having trouble. You may want to contact Microsoft Xbox live support to have your system serviced. You can find the support information in the link below,

Could you tell me in steps how to conect to xbox live


Step 1 Form your Xbox 360 you need to be connected to the Internet by a straight LAN line or wirelessly. You can test you connection by going to the setting screen on your Xbox 360.
  • Step 2 Once connected to the Internet for your Xbox 360 go to your main account screen and find the tab that says "Join Xbox LIVE" click on that link then follow the simple instructions that the Xbox LIVE will provide. At this point you should have a name in mind for your gamer tag.
  • Step 3 Xbox 360 LIVE has several different options available for memberships. They are a monthly, 3-month and 12-month membership accounts. I would recommend a simple one month account if you just wanted to check out the features offered on XBOX 360 LIVE. If your an avid gamer and love to play games online with friends, the 12-month Gold membership is the way to go.
  • Step 4 Once you've completed the process of joining Xbox 360 LIVE, they will send you a confirmation email confirming your membership. Now you can log on to Xbox 360 LIVE and start doing this like customizing your avatar and playing online multi-player games.

    How do we connect xbox consul to imac and play


    There is no way to connect the original XBox console to an imac's monitor. There was never an hdmi or VGA connector that was worth buying made for the Original XBox.

    The XBox 360 has a nice VGA adapter. But no the original XBox, sorry!

    Xbox 360 Controller Won't Connect To My 360....


    You have to connect the controller like this: Somewhere on the XBox 360 controller there is a button that looks like this, o))) or something like that. Push that button and look at the XBox 360 round lights, they start to flash, that means you have to push the same button on the console. The o))) button should be infront of the console.

    X box 360


    You can't get an IP address on the Xbox that way. You need to get an IP address from a device that works as a DHCP server such as a residential router. Connecting the Xbox to the PC will do nothing for you.
