Here's an issue for you guys. I have an Acer H233H monitor, and it has touch-sensitive "buttons" for adjusting the settings. I *hate* touch sensitive buttons, and didn't realize it had those when I bought it. It's my only 1920x1080 monitor, since my second monitor is a lower resolution. I do a lot of HD video editing and don't want to sacrifice my only full-HD capable monitor for weeks while they supposedly repair. I'm not even sure it's covered under warranty at this point.

The one broken touch area is the spot for the right arrow. Everything else works for the most part, but I can't adjust things to the right, meaning I can turn down the brightness but can't turn it back up. Any suggestions for how to fix or work around this?

Thanks in advance.

It depends on your monitor software, but for some of them you can adjust the monitor's properties through the software. You can access these through the Control Panel.

Yeah, unfortunately I cannot change anything that I actually want to. Mainly, I want to be able to adjust the brightness of the monitor. No such option available... But you made me realize that I could search and see if there is a proprietary software program from Acer that will do this. I'll get back with you and let you know what I find out.

Nothing available to do what I need it to. I might be able to fix it by taking the face plate off, but knowing my luck I'll just damage it more. I'd rather not risk it, and I suppose I'll leave well-enough alone. Sometime soon I should just get a new monitor, and then I'll have dual 1920x1080. Right now I'm running one 1920x1080 and one 1680x1050.
