Question about Acer AL1715 17" LCD Monitor
Auto Config should (in theory) reposition the viewing area of the screen dependant on the resolution. So it fires up when the resolution your monitor is working at is different than the native one (1280x1024), if it's working in windows - set the resolution to 1280x1024 and it should work ok. right click on desktop>properties>settings p.s. also set the refresh rate to 60 hertz.

Had the same problem, and found a pretty ghetto workaround.
Found that when I held in the power button, the box went away. So after trying tape and a couple other things, I just pushed the button in and jammed the end of a bent-out paperclip into the space between the button and the case.
Seems to be working, maybe someone else can figure out what the root of the problem is.

Well i also have had this problem in the past and no matter what i did with the refresh rate and or resolution nothing would work. so i looked further and i tryed unpluging the unit and letting it sit that did not work and then i accidentaly hit the top of the monitor case rather hard ( I was mad and i punched it strieght down) and low and behold the auto config screen stoped comeing up. this lasted for a while until my computer desk was bumped and it started happeneing again. from what i can tell either the circut board is cracked where the buttons are or some how the case got twisted and is now putting preshure on the button like you are hitting it. so i carefully put presure on the case in the differnet direction while it was on to see if i could duplicate the problem and it started happeneding with when i put persure on the case in a certain way so i put preusre on it in the opposit direction and it stoped. when i take the case apart and look to see if it is the board or not i will post here again with my information . i hope this helps someone because i know how this problem can drive you nutz
