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.

Installed new Acer P236H to a few years old Windows XP system. Graphics, pictures are squished and skewed, text appears fine. Have played with settings, OSD and Win Display. Never resolved problem, but...

What device-resolution combinations is your computer's video-card capable of? 1024 by 768 by 60 Hz? 1024 by 1024? Anything that matches that "native" resolution of the ACER?

You may need to upgrade your video-card, to support the "native" resolution of the ACER.

How do I get a normal image on an Acer X203H monitor?

right click on your desktop and select "properties" (xp)  or "personalization" (vista/7).  In xp, select the "settings" tab, and in vista/7, select "display settings". then adjust your screen resolution to a wider aspect ratio to compensate for the wide screen.

W17e says "input not supported"

Hi - here's what I found about your wide screen monitor:

The HP Pavilion w17e LCD wide-screen monitor has the following features:
  • 1440 x 900 factory-set resolution
  • Supports VGA analog signal video input
  • Plug and play capability, if supported by your computer system
  • On-screen display (OSD) adjustments for ease of setup and screen optimization
  • Energy Star compliant
Download & install the drivers for the monitor based on the version of Windows you are running from the HP site below:

Once the drivers are installed, your issues should be resolved - the driver will allow only the modes that can be displayed on the monitor - probably giving you options for resolutions you hadn't seen before.

"Input Not Supported" after adjusting screen resolution

What resolution are you trying to run? The native resolution for your monitor is 1440 x 900, setting to that should fix your issue

Acer P193W monitor stretched image

What service pack of windows xp are you running? Also, do you have your old monitor, if so, then plug it in and see if the same problem occurs. If not , go under the settings for your graphics card (not windows display options) and see if there can be a correction made to the settings for your monitor. Also, try going to and updating your computer (it's free) and you'll probably get the required driver to fix the problem from them. Check under your control panel and see if you have automatic updates turned on, if so you may want to limit what updates are to be installed by allowing updates but you choose which one's to install. Hope I could help. My e-mail

Computer won't recognize monitor driver

Its the usb, if u connect the monitor via the standard port, the vga port, it will work. If your monitor only have an dvi cable you can fix that by an adapter. That adapter should be an DVI to VGA.

Good luck to you

No Driver

You can use the .icm file from the Vista driver by manually going into driver update and pointing to the location wher you extracted it to. This however probaly won't fix your issue however, as the problem is more than likely that your videocard doesn't support the 1440 x 900 resolution.
