Question about Acer X191WSD Monitor

2 Answers

Max resolution? I can't seem to get windows to adjust to the max resolution of this monitor (1440x900); it's not one of the resolutions offered in the display settings, nor can I access the properties of my monitor (it just says default monitor and the properties tab is greyed). According to a friend I have to get a driver for the monitor, but there is not one on the disc that came with it, nor can I seem to find one online. How can I get this monitor to its best resolution?

It is very possible that your video card doesn't support the wide screen resolution, especially if it is more than 2-3 years old.

I have installed viewsonic va1716w monitor using windows xp. I am unable to set its resolution to 1440X900. from display properties it going from 1024X768 to 1280X1024


It is possible that the video driver cannot support 1440X900 resolution.
Try installing the latest video driver and then try the higher screen resolution.

How do I get my gateway fpd1975w tft lcd monitor to not stretch images images across the screen?


You need to make sure your computer's display resolution is set to 1440x900, which is the monitor's native resolution. Other resolutions will result in fuzzy displays or, as you're seeing, distorted images.

Right-click on an open area of the Windows desktop (that is, not over any icons), then select "Properties" from the pop-up menu. Click the "Settings" tab and you'll find a slider adjustment to set the resolution. If 1440x900 is not offered as a resolution, you'll need to upgrade your video card (or add a video card if you have a motherboard with integrated video). Most newer computers support that resolution, but some older systems may only go to 1024x768.

Hi...I have an Acer monitor Model# X193wb,,,it appears that everything is magnified ...my cursor ...everything...how do i adjust the monitor to get it back to normal size again...I have tried...


Hi Alice,
from what I have found on the web: This model features a 1440x900 native resolution
I am guessing you that you or a game has changed the resolution to something other than 1440x900.
Assuming you have Windows 7: If you right click on the desktop in an empty spot ie not on a folder or icon, you should be able to see a selection called Screen Resolution, and then after that pulldown box next to the word "Resolution" that allows you to change your resolution to 1440x900. I am assuming a game has changed your resolution to something like 640x480 or something else like 800x600.
If you aren't using Windows 7 go to Start, Control Panel, Display and you should be able to change your display settings there.
Feel free to ask some questions or help from me.
Regards,
Steve

Windows XP Not displaying fully on 1440x900 resolution.


If you have one of those older CRT monitors you should be able to resize the image. Some LCDs have screen shifting tools too. Try doing a full restart, too. (shutting your computer down, waiting 1 or 2 minutes, then starting it up again.)

Proview wb926wbi monitor


Try changing the resolution to 1440x900. This is the ideal resolution for this monitor.
To change the resolution:
Right click on an empty space on your Windows desktop.
Choose Properties (XP) or Personalize (Vista)
Choose the Settings tab (XP) or Display Settings (Vista).
Slide the resolution slider to 1440x900, then click apply.
If asked whether you want to keep this setting, choose yes/ok.

Note: Not all video cards support this resolution. Updating your video card's (not monitor's) driver may add it.

How to Adjust the sceen ratio from 16:9 to 4:3


Since it's a widescreen monitor, the streching is likely from using a 4:3 ratio resolution on a 16:9 ratio monitor. Try setting the operating systems display resolution to 1440x900, since that's your monitor's native resolution (LCD monitors only really have one resolution). In Windows, resolution settings are found by right-clicking on the desktop, click properties, and go to the Settings tab.
