Question about Acer AL1916S (Silver, Black) (Black, Silver) 19" LCD Monitor

Open Question

ACER AL1916S After booting my computer the screen appeared a dark shade of blue. I have checked the cables and they are fine. I have rebooted the drivers for the monitor and the graphics card (onboard intel graphics media accelerator 900) I believe the problem to be within the moniter settings. I.E the RGB settings, however it would take too long to adjust these colours mannually. I have restored the settings on the monitor to defult but they are not correct. The monitor apperars to be working properly (i.e the colour is fine withing the onscreen menu) but my windows display is poor. Could you please assist on either a solution or the correct R , G ,B settings for this monitor. Many thanks A much distressed Steve Woodward

SOURCE: acer al1716 colour problems

I have an Acer AL1916 which I bought new in March 06. It became faulty when the colours changed. In addition the whole image shifted to the left a few inches (now and again). Like yourselves I thought it was the cable / PC but it was the same on a seperate unit. Concluded faulty - so back to Acer it went. They repaired it and it came back with the colours back as they should.

However, 10 months on, it's done it again. I turned it on Monday and the screens gone back to a horrible purple hue.

So back to Acer it goes again. I'm not impressed at all. Temped to fight and try and get my money back. Clearly these screens have a reoccuring fault and it sounds like you guys have the same fault.

BLUE screen problem(monitor)


It is the picture picture board on your monitor that is malfunctioning, since the power led or button is on, but blue shaded screen, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity or any service center to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Sounds like your PC is diplaying out of your monitors range. Try pressing f8 while booting up to get safe mode. then turn down the video resolution to display what your monitor can handle. Good Luck.

To use PC Restore:

1. Turn on the Computer. During the boot process, a blue bar with appears at the top of the screen.

2. Immediately upon seeing the blue bar, press <Ctrl><F11>. If you do not press <Ctrl><F11> in time, let the Computer finish restarting, and then restart the Computer again.

NOTICE: If you do not want to proceed with PC Restore, click Reboot in the following step.

3. On the next screen that appears, click Restore.

4. On the next screen, click Confirm. The restore process takes approximately 6–10 minutes to complete.

5. When prompted, click Finish to reboot the Computer.

NOTE: Do not manually shut down the Computer. Click Finish and let the Computer completely reboot.

6. When prompted, click Yes.

The Computer restarts. Because the Computer is restored to its original operating state, the screens that appear, such as the End User License Agreement, are the same ones that appeared the first time the Computer was turned on.

7. Click Next. The System Restore screen appears and the Computer restarts.

8. After the Computer restarts, click OK.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Input not support, Acer V193w

if the monitor is DVI conencted to PCI card, the computer will not see the monitor, on boot up, only in the Windows mode.
replace the DVI connecting with a VGA connection on the monitor, if there is no VGA connection on the monitor then you need to get a VGA monitor and connect that to theVGA port on the motherboard connector at the rear of the computer.

Shadows and Ghosts on the Screen

Plugged up display via the VGA cable to an HP dv6000 laptop; the Acer powered up and displayed fine ... however, noticed a faint waving motion in the picture, as if the screen was literally gel and began to wave, from top to bottom as it appeared. Best I can describe it ... any suggestions as to why? I only connected it to this HP to try it out, I ordered it from newegg and wanted to make sure pixels werent dead on arival. I will be getting an Aurora 7500 (Alienware): AMD X2 6000, Windows Vista Premium, 2GB RAM, GeForce 512 8800GT, SLI ready motherboard ... I heard good things of Acer and hoped this display would look great with my soon-to-come setup and im sure it will. However, just nervous it will do this on my Aurora. Any help or suggestions would be beyond appreciated!!
