Having problems with your Acer X193W LCD Monitor ?

Acer's x193w killing my eyes..please help

\015 Last week I purchsed a new x193w Acer wide monitor and I have 2 major problems:\015\012First, the recommended resolution is 1440x900 and this means very small fonts. I tries everything- changed the resolution, the DPI, the windows font size in the display properties, checked the cleartype box, nothing works. the only thing that works is unchecking the box "ignore font size" in the browser in the internet options, but it makes a mess in the websites, distorting the webs looks.\015\012the second problem is with the colors- red on is too strong.\015\012\015\012Can someone please help? I feel like i spent money for nothing.\015

Answers :

First off, LCD monitors have what is called a 'native resolution' and that is why it is recommended to be at 1440 x 900. That is the resolution they work best at. My first suggestion is to try to move the monitor closer to you. If that is not possible, try right-clicking on your desktop, click on the Properties tab (That is where you change the resolution. I am doing this for a Windows XP machine - if you are running Vista please let me know and I will try to walk you through it there). Click on the "Advanced" button and in the "General" tab, there should be a "DPI Setting" drop down box. There is usually 96 DPI and 120 DPI. Try 120 DPI and see if that helps.

Second, try using your monitor's menu settings to help the color settings. On your monitor there is a "Menu" button of some sort. Press that and select "Acer eColor Management" and try "Text Mode" to see if that is easier on your eyes. You can also manually adjust the screen and lower the strength of the red color by picking "User" instead of "Acer eColor Management" and selecting the icon that looks like a pyramid of 3 dots. Try adjusting the Red slider and see if that helps.
