Hello all, I've recently installed Windows XP Professional (Before I was running XP Media Center 2006) so all of the old files and drivers are gone. The monitor I have is an Acer X193WB and the resolution I'd like is 1490 x 900. I downloaded the driver from the site even though it seemed to only be for Vista, and I don't exactly know what to do with the files. There's an ICC file, a security catalogue, and Setup Information. What am I supposed to do?

What is the system manufacturer and model?

The display adapter drivers determine max resolution.

the resolution I'd like is 1490 x 900

I expect that's a typo & you mean 1440 x 900 - that's the resolution of the monitor.
