Re: Can I replace the screen with a hi resolution one?
Good day Manuel
No you cannot, the resolution of your laptop is not provided by the screen of the laptop it is generated by the video card, so if in your current settings the highest resolution you can turn your laptop to is 1280 X 800 then that is the most you are going to get.
The best you can hope for is to update to the latest video card drivers and software and maybe just maybe you may be able to increase the resolution but that is not a gurantee.

1) Check the screen resolution. Right-click on My Computer, (or Computer), then at the bottom of the list click on Properties.
2) In the Display Properties window, click on the Settings tab. In the middle, under -> Screen resolution, is it the native screen resolution for the laptop's monitor screen? (LCD screen)
Example: 768 x 1280
Don't know? Use the computer you are using now, and look up a replacement LCD screen for your laptop. This info will tell you what the native screen resolution is....(Will just state screen resolution, or resolution)
Also......Look to the right of Screen resolution. Color quality is supposed to be Highest (32 bit) If it isn't, then click on the blue side arrow, and in the list click on Highest (32 bit)
Still no? Then don't give up on me, we're diagnosing the problem remotely. Come back in a Comment.
Go into the Display Settings under the Control Panel and change the resolution. Some screens won't take the high resolution that's why when you replace a screen you need to make sure you're replacing it with one like you had.
Click Start/Control Panel/ Display and go to the Settings or Resolution area to change it. On some systems the Display will be under Appearance and Personalization.
here is a test. turn the computer off and plug it into an external monitor. turn it on. if the screen comes up on your external monitor the backlight on your LCD screen is shot and needs to be replaced. if the screen does not come up then the inverterboard needs to be replaced or the entire motherboard itself might need replacing. you would need to contact your local computer repair shop or acer tech support for and replacements.
This is not a monitor problem.This is a mother board problem, some mother boards are supporting this resolution.For this problem,you have to replace the mother board or put the graphics card on the same mother board.your problem will solve.
Go to System, on the top bar, then Preferences and select Monitors. On the Monitor Preference screen there will be different resolution settings that you can choose. If there are any resolution settings higher than 800X600 like 1024X768 etc. select it and apply.
If there is no other settings available go to System then Administration and select Additional driver. When the Additional drivers screen appears check if it recommends a a driver to be downloaded. If it does, download the driver and then you will be able to get higher screen resolutions.
If there is no additional driver to download it gets a bit tricky. You will need to edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. The file will look someting like this:
It will be wise to make a backup of this file if you are going to edit it. (xorg.conf.old) Inside the file you will see your screen and its resolution. (Preferred mode) You need to change the resolution, save the file and restart your session. If all went well your resolution will be set to what you specified, if your display freaks out replace the xorg.conf file with the xorg.conf.old file.
Sounds like you need to adjust your screen resolution.
For Windows XP - Right Click anywhere on the desktop>Properties>Settings Tab
For Windows 7/Vista - Right Click anywhere on the desktop>Screen Resolution
Just play around with the different resolutions until you can find one that fits your new display properly.
Try this. Make sure you are at the desk top screen. Right click your mouse click on properties. When the display properties comes up select the settings tab. Now you will see the display properties and you can adjust tho get a higher resolution screen. Hope this helps. JimmyC
First boot in safe mode and the display resolution will be minimal if the screen appears ok with big fonts then try and adjust the normal resolution but not high resolution like 640x480 with 256 colors, if it works then you acer laptop screeen is fine but the exactly display drivers to be reloaded else there is a problem with your laptop screen which needs to be replaced
The native resolution for that LCD is 1440x900. If you do not see that resolution in your display properties you can try to update the video driver. If it is still not displayed as an option you may need a newer graphics card. Many newer low end card support this widescreen resolution, so if you need to replace the card you will not need to spend a lot of money.
