Acer AL1916W monitor

We just purchased the wide screen acer monitor that did not come with any drivers. The computer set up we have running windows XP will not allow us to install the drivers we downloaded formt eh acer website. We even tried r-ght-clicking the inf driver file and selecting install but had no luck. What can we do to get these drivers to install? The resolution is poor - the text is blurry.

    That setting does not exist on this computer. We finally figured out how to install the correct drivers but now the text is still blurry, even after we set the effects in the appearance tab to clear type. Could it be possible that the monitor is faulty?

The AL1916W's native resolution is 1440 x 900. See if your display settings can produce that resolution.

Update your video car drivers and then look for the specific drivers of your monitor, it happened to me once using windows 7 i just installed the monitor's driver from the manufacturers website. go to acer website and support download page and search for your model, donwload and install and hope that solves your problem.

Problems with monitor Acer AL1916w

I'm using the Al1916W and it looks great at 1440 x 990. Make sure you have the latest Screen card drivers installed.

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)?
