Question about Acer X183H 18" Monitor

1 Answer

Good evening, I have a Dell Dimension 8400 running XP and i bought an monitor (Acer X183h) today. The Acer has an obnoxiously bright yellow hue. I spoke to Acer's "support team" earlier and they believe the issue is due to a lack of compatibility between the Acer and the Dell. I updated the drivers of both my ATI X300 video card and and new monitor, but the yellow hue persists. I unplugged the video cable while the Dell and monitor were on and the yellow hue completely disappears when data in error appears. Please help if you can.

Get a new video card, you dont need the best video card to support 1440*900. It is affordable and the best solution.

SOURCE: acer al2016w monitor

Hi,

Based on publish specs of the Acer AL2016W its maximum resolution is 1680x1050. If the PC is fine then perhaps the issue is that the PC is set to display higher than the 1680x1050 max res of the Acer LCD. What is required is to lower down the Screen resolution of the PC. This can be done by booting into Safe Mode (on boot, press and hold (or tap continuously) "F8", display will be "Windows Advanced Options Menu", use up/down arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and hit the Enter key. Right click on any clear area of the desktop and click on Properties, click on the Settings tab and move the Screen resolution to 1680 by 1050 pixels or lower. In some cases, you may need to lower down also the Screen refresh rate. Reboot.

hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Reinstalled Windows XP on a Dell Dimension 8400 and The local area connection is not detected. Cannot seem to find drivers through Dell support


Dell Dimension 8400 PC"s use either Broadcom Extreme Ethernet controllers OR, on SOME models of the 8400 that do NOT have ON-board Ethernet connections, SMC Networks Ethernet Drivers. I've seen MANY a Dell Dimension.

Set up cd rom dell dimension 8400


Hello Download drivers here at dell:

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/Product/dimension-8400

The drivers can be downloaded one by one.

You maybe need to unzip the file before you install.

Here is only drivers for win xp.

You can`t download a setup disk but you can call dell support
to order the software from them (if they still have it) by the service tag.

Good luck

If you hit <F12> key upon boot-up and the monitor displays a boot menu, then you probably have an issue with your XP software. Meaning that you may have to re-install XP (by the way, XP is no longer supported).

My Acer X183H LCD monitor changes to a green hue and often will flicker causing the background white to go greenish or gray rapidly. How can I fix this?


You want to make sure that the VGA connector is fully secure. Also the VGA connector is hooked in and screwed in the back of the computer If it has a loose connection, remove the connector and check if has all pins in it. If one of the pins is loose then its time to replace the VGA cord. If this doesn't work it might be the LCD screen messing up internally.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 that I am running dual monitors on. I recently upgraded to Windows 7 professional from Windows XP and now I can't get both monitors to run at the same time. I have a Nvdia...


You should have 2 video ports on the 8400 GS card. One is the standard 15 pin VGA port and the other is the DVI port. You should be able to use these ports on the card to connect dual monitors. If you use the video port integrated on the motherboard you will bypass the 8400 GS card. Here's a link from Microsoft about running dual displays:
http://www.microsoft.com/athome/organization/twomonitors.aspx
The other issue is whether your monitors are DVI compatible.

[Ithr]checkpoint failure dell 8400 dimension


What can cause this error?

Well, this is the problem since quite a variety of problems can trigger the error.

1: the bios can be malfunctioning (a bios reset or flash can give a solution)
2: the cpu can be malfunctioning (this requires a new cpu)
3: the cpu socket can be failing (this requires a new mb)
4: the problem can be with bad usb sockets
5: even a bad uplink to a usb hub can cause this error to appear.
Did you change your monitor lately? I would chase down the USB things first...that and the monitor seem to trip the trigger...
Hope this get you started- I think you were right on target with the flash of the BIOS-try it again using the BIOS flash downloaded from the dell site...and to run the chipset again...it just might
Good luck my friend, hope this helps, please leave rating, thank you kindly
