    While in use, the screen blacks out and the "acer" screen saver comes on. The power indicator stays green, so I know it's still connected to the computer ok. After clicking the mouse a few times, it goes away, and I can use it again.

That problem could emanate from either the video card or on-board video circuit. The best way to separate the two possibilities is by substitution; connect your monitor to another PC and a borrowed monitor you your PC.
If you can swap with a friend for a few hours, have either monitor connected to a PC that is turned off, then turn on the monitor(s) first, start the PC.  This should force Windows to 'find' the different monitor and install the appropriate driver.
When swapping back, you will need to do that again to restore the PCs to their original settings/drivers.
The problem is most likely the monitor and it sounds like a main power supply in the monitor is headed toward failure, probably due to one or more failed electrolytic capacitors like so many others in recent times.

Power board is starting to have capacitors fail. They will get worse !
If it were a computer signal issue your power light color would change or you would get a no signal note.
A year ! yep about that time for an overhaul based on the parts they used.

go to acer website and download driver for monitor or graphics monitor. Make sure you download AL 1916W and NOT AL1916. Make sure after, you set your resolution to 1440 x 900. That should do the trick.

It proably has dying DC filter caps.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed ACER and other monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Hi:
Unfortunately, it isn't a Windows problem, but a monitor power or backlight failure. Your monitor's high voltage inverter board, or the backlight has failed. Often it is too expensive to repair, and cheaper to replace the monitor if it is out of warranty

How do I remove the back from my acer al 1916W


face down the monitor over a soft surface to avoid scratches .Remove all screws that you can see.There are more screws that mount the leg to the monitor .Those are hidden you can not see.Covered by a little plastic cover shell.After you remove all the screws ,now you need to remove the back cover from the monitor .using a flat screw driver or another slim tool begin from one side .stick the screw driver into join line between the front and back cover and twist it gently.this is hard part of the operation.You got to be careful .try to loose one side first then other sides ll be easier.
