Question about Acer AL1714 17" LCD Monitor

Volume Icon in Appears on the Screen

This volume icon appears on the screen and would not go away even after pressing the auto or menu buttons on the monitor.

When the menu option finally shows up, it seems to have a life on its own and will just run through the various icons. It would stop when the auto button is pressed but the volume icon shows up again after that.

Is there something wrong with the monitor and it's time to get a new one? OR is there something wrong with some other parts of the computer?

Thanks for helping

Volume icon appears in the middle of my iPad 3 screen and won't stay off.


Do you have a case on the iPad? Sometimes an ill-fitting case can trigger the buttons by itself. If there is any lint or dirt between the case and the iPad, it can cause the same issue. If you have headphones with a volume controller on the cable - check that that is not being pressed by accident. You can also check to see if there is any lint caught inside the headphone hole. Sometimes that can cause a little electrical short and trigger funny behavior on the iPad. If none of those solve your problem, take it to the apple store, it could just be a faulty switch.

Installed AOC 2436vh, top of screen off of physical structure of screen, tried power down, physical reinstall, roll back of driver and reload of cd, how do I uninstall monitor to try again? Or adjust it...


I have the 2436V (no speakers), but I suspect the solution will be similar. My screen was a bit to the left of the monitor's physical display area, and I was able to solve it using the built in menu (If you take too long deciding what menu button to press next, the menu will time out. Just start over if that happens. You will get faster with practice).

1) Press the menu button on the monitor (the menu appears).
2) Press the up button on the monitor 4 times to highlight the icon that looks like a slightly angled screen with yellow cross-hairs in one corner (the toolbar for positioning the screen appears - all 5 icons on the positioning toolbar are blue).
3) Press the menu button on the monitor to "enter" the selected toolbar (one of the toolbar icons turns green to indicate the selected tool on the toolbar).
4) Select the tool you need using the up/down arrow buttons on the monitor (I needed the one that moves the screen horizontally, you need the one that moves the screen vertically).
5) Press the menu button on the monitor to activate the selected tool (the meter above the toolbar icon turns green to indicate the tool is active).
6) Use the up/down buttons on the monitor to position the screen.
7) Press the menu button to exit back out (or, just let the menu time out).

Note: the disk that came with the monitor doesn't seem to have drivers for Windows 7, but allowing Windows to search online while updating the driver found a compatible driver online.
