Windows 7: Windows 7 Driver for "acer" Monitor X183H

12 Jul 2014   #1

Windows 7 32 bit
Windows 7 Driver for "acer" Monitor X183H

This Monitor worked just fine in Vista. When I upgraded to W-7,
the built in driver VIA - Display - VIA Chrome9 HC IGP Family WDDM
is useless! It restricted max resolution to 800 X 600 !! Disgustingly crude
resolution. Googled for ever but found nothing workable. Lot's of sites
want to sell me Driver update service for a fee.

So, in desperation, I downloaded driver from Acer written for Vista.
Removed Windows 7 driver, and installed the Vista driver. It works fine!
I can now go upto 1366 X 768 pixels resolution.

Now every time I get Windows Update, it tries to install the unwanted
built in driver. I right clicked it and selected "hide update" option. From
now on, Windows Update should not be nagging me about the Monitor Driver.

Hello and welcome Bobby mate some system specs would be very helpful as we need to know what the system has in in components wise.
System Info - See Your System Specs

Having said that the resolution seems pretty limited and again it would be good to see the specs so that we can see why.

After following ICit2lol request for more information.

The Display isn't the Monitor, it is your Graphics Processor Unit (GPU)

Monitor > Acer X183H

GPU > VIA Chrome9 HC (Integrated Graphics Processors (IGP))
S3 Graphics - Drivers
Visit for the availability of drivers for all Integrated Graphics Processors (IGPs).
unfortunately, I get a server error for

VIA Drivers Download - VIA Technologies, Inc. takes me to VIA Embedded

Entering VIA Chrome9 HC IGP in the search box turns up these results:
VIA Embedded

Which takes you back to ICit2lol's request for more information.

VIA embedded - manual (PDF)
See page 69 - On chip IGP/VGA configuration
BIOS Setup Configuration
  • Select Display Device
  • Panel type

That's about as far as I can go without knowing more about your machine.

Hope that helps, John.
