  Monitor distorted above 1440 x 900 
 Date Written 
Reason Oct 23, 2012, 10:32pm EDT Report Abuse
One of my Acer X233Hs has apparently crapped out suddenly. After swapping cables and trying a few things today, it appears that it has an issue displaying anything above 1440 x 900. That resolution and below are fine. Native is 1920x1080.

I've reset the monitor and fiddled with the OSD, reseated the DVI cable, tried the other one, tried both outputs on my vid card, but no joy.

Anyone got any magic ideas? Or should I replace it?

Thanks John,
I did mess with the config and the problem stays with the monitor. It does not follow the cord, the DVI output, or the software config either through Windows or through CCC.

I also checked the monitors via SIW and saw no differences. Acer has a driver download on their site.

However, I left it turned off overnight (as opposed to standby) and it let me bump it up to full res today. So hopefully it'll stay not broken.

Probably not the same, but just remembered I had an older Acer LCD display that had intermittent control interface settings problems shortly after running out of warranty. Video worked fine but settings spontaneously would go wonky at times. Or, it'd work right for a few days, but then it wouldn't let me turn on/off the display for a few hours at a time, or it powered-on with a "random" setting (resolutions, color, saturation, etc) and wouldn't let me change it, menu buttons wouldn't work, etc. It turned out to be the control buttons interface internal connector. When that was addressed all the probs went away.
