20 Most Recent Acer AL1716 17" LCD Monitor Questions & Answers

If you have tried a different monitor and still get the vertical lines the problem lies either with your cable or graphics card or motherboard (if you don't have a graphics card).
If you are running a graphics card take it out and put it back in and check if it still shows you the lines, if so remove it and try using the on board graphics from the motherboard. 'f the problem disappears its the graphics card if not its the motherboard.

When the LCD monitor display flickers and or has a black screen then the fault is usually a faulty inverter or the CCFL lamp. When you look at the screen at a sharp angle and you see a dim image then it is a backlight problem and it is caused by a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp.

1. Unplug the AC power cord to make sure the power is off.
turn the monitor upside down, you need 2 people for this.
2. Pull the 4 hooks on bottom side of the base and hold.
3. Separate the monitor and base.

1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or flashing, but nothing displays, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.

if problem persist when opening multiple tabs, your RAM (random access memory) might be failing or is cluttered by a virus or program. If there is not enough memory available, the screen will go crazy or have a hard time coming on. Next you can check your video card if its not an integrated one. You may need to use a cheap used card to make sure that it is not a video card problem.

monitors need drivers only to do color calibration, otherwise the resolution is automatically recognized. try to update your graphic card drivers

the video settings on your computer has changed to a setting that the monitor doesn't like! try entering your computer in safe mod and change the setting to a max of 1024x768. however, if your video card has a dual output and you have 2 monitors connected at the same time then this is your problem. make sure that the 17" lcd is monitor 1 and the other monitor #2. one of the monitors is set higher the the 17" lcd and when it is not connected the computer may think this the setting for the 17" lcd and not the other monitor which may be hdmi or 1900x1080 which the 17" cannot read this it is out of range!

You should have no problem connecting the monitor to the VGA port of the Dell that is already comes with the computer, just make sure to set the video output resolution to be at native resolution of the monitor, which is 1280 x 1024 @60Hz.
