Most monitors these days only carry a one year warranty. some of the higher end ones are longer. it would be worth the effort to at least check into the warranty. if its not still covered , trash it, use it as an excuse to get the monitor you really wanted. you can find a 22 inch monitor for under $200 all over the web.

I was watching an online video and the monitor went black so I shutdown and restarted the computer and then the screen stayed black then a great-deal of smoke came out of the vents. Is the monitor gone?...


A product will not work after you let the smoke out, so in this case I am afraid the monitor is due for the graveyard. You should check if there is a warranty.

4 Computer Money-saving Tips


Here are four tips that’ll save you money when buying your next computer.

Tip #1 -- Rebates: A rebate is not always a bargain. Computers with rebates are often close to being discontinued. You may pick up a good deal or purchase technology that's about to become yesterday’s news. What's more, stores will often package computers with a bunch of free items to make it look like you're getting more value. Chances are the extras are either poor quality or items you're unlikely to use. Also, they’re counting on you to not redeem your rebate, a very common occurrence.

Tip #2 -- Extended Service Warrantees: Buyer Beware! They're a gamble, but not always a bad idea. If you're purchasing a laptop and you plan to travel a lot, an extended warranty that covers replacement of the monitor/display can be a good gamble. Replacing a display can cost $400-$600, making the warranty worthwhile. On the other hand, if you plan on buying the warranty for routine maintenance; save your money. Oftentimes it can take weeks for the store to send your PC out for service. Also, remember the store where you purchased your computer does not always do warranty work during the first year, instead you may have to ship it directly to the manufacturer. In general, extended warranties cover electronics [things you can't see]. They don't usually cover physical damage. Most extended warranties have large gray areas, leaving the warranty provider a lot of room to reject claims.

Tip #3 -- Monitors: Don’t throw away your monitor if it's still working properly. Instead, keep it and save a chunk of money by just replacing your old CPU [computer tower]. Monitors last much longer than CPUs and the technology is usually compatible between your old monitor and the new CPU. However, if you’re dissatisfied, then monitors, keyboards and mouses are the three tools to spend extra money on, since you use them every day!

Tip #4 -- Networking: How are you connecting to the Internet? If you're using a high speed Internet connection, such as cable broadband or DSL, you'll want to make sure you have a network card built into your system. If you have a wireless network at home or at the office, save money and installation time by buying the wireless card built right into the computer.

Thin purple lines started appearing on aoc monitor. Computer is Acer Aspire, quad-core with integrated video. All connections appear to be tight. Lines are going further upward now. jscreenfix isn't...


well this could be one of two things it could be your monitor so get it checked at a freinds house if that works fine at your freinds house then it must be your graphics card if the monitor is the problem then yes its a warranty issue and should be replaced by supplier if its the graphics card and its not covered in your warranty then you should be able to get a cheap one on ebay hope this helps

Front Bezel


If your talking about the tower case you can get any cool aftermarket one here, from $40.00. If you're talking about the monitor or screen and its under warranty you need to contact the monitor's manufacturer.

Blue tint...then unresponsive...only 5 months old


You're probably lucky that this happened now. You're most likely still covered under warranty. Contact Acer support and arrange a swap. If your pc works okay with another monitor there's no point in troubleshooting further. Get that monitor switched before the warranty runs out.

I have a 2 year old CTX S760A monitor, when I switch on the computer the monitor switches on and off several times about 25-30 times before stabilising. It works well after that. This has been happening...


First, I would try connecting a different monitor if possible. If the problem persists, it would be a problem with your computers video card. If the 2nd monitor works fine, then your monitor is at fault and may need to be replaced.

My 4 month old laptop is not working


If the monitor turns black - maybe you have a screen saver or there is a fault with your display. Try using an alternative monitor or flat panel.
