The VGA section of the Monitor is totally separate circuit than that used by the DVI circuit. Either or will do an automatic switch to what ever circuit communicates via the proper attachment (VG or DVI cable). AS long as the VGA Drivers are up-to-date the operating system should recognize the Video signal. Check the DEVICES and look for Video. Your Monitor should show up if the connection is proper, and if not there, you may have a bad Video Cord.

I have an Acer X223W,
If I am not mistaken this model has a screw on the bottom of the stand that secures the stand to the monitor.
What you need to do is to flip up the ring that is connected to the screw and then turn the screw in the anti-clockwise direction. Which will loosen the screw and allow you to remove the stand.

Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps).

Does this monitor have a tile mechanism?
If you are speaking about TILTING. Yes it does have a tilting ability.
If your speaking about actual TILING on your monitor, that is done from your computer it self.
How to Enable Screen Tiling and Resizing on Monitor
If you constantly have 2, 3, or 16 windows open on your computer, WinSplit Revolution can help you organize your space. This little Windows utility automatically resizes and relocates windows making it easy to stack your programs vertically, horizontally, or in little boxes.
The program isn't really that useful if you've got an 800 x 600 pixel display, but if you've got a high resolution widescreen monitor, WinSplit Revolution can help you make the most of your space. You can assign keyboard shortcuts to various positions. For instance, one hotkey can maximize the current window, while another can unmaximize it and drag it to the left side of the screen.
