This computer display monitor is built with a 20-inch viewable area that is supported by a 5 ms response time. It is capable of supporting 16.7 million colors with a manufacturer recommended resolution of 1680 by 1050 pixels. In terms of image quality it features a 0.258 mm dot pitch setting and 2500:1 contrast ratio. Based on these specifications the Acer X203W is expected to deliver high quality images to the computer user to enhanced his computing experience. However, it must be understood that the Acer X203W and its corresponding device driver is part of a display subsystem which is made up of different elements. All of these elements eventually contribute to how the final rendered image would appear on the computer screen. Normally when there is a breakdown of communication among the different elements display errors like blank screens or garbage characters are produced. The device driver is primarily responsible for maintaining this communication infrastructure.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
This particular display hardware component is capable of receiving both analog RGB and digital video signals. This is made possible by the presence of its D-sub and DVI input ports. Essentially the Acer X203W like most computer monitors is digital in nature as well as the video signal itself. It only becomes analog once it leaves the video output port of the graphics processing card wherein it undergoes a digital to analog conversion. So in terms of video signals, the difference between analog and digital lies within what is being transmitted along the video cable. Once the analog signal is received by the computer monitor it is then converted back into its digital format. When using Liquid Crystal Display based computer monitors the drawback to using analog signals is within the process of addressing picture elements. This becomes a problem because of the fixed pixel structure implemented by these types of devices. Basically the video signal must match up with all image pixels in order to produce good quality outputs. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Acer X203W errors before installing any driver updates.
