Re: HELP!! ACER AL1711 On and Off forever
Most of these have inverters that power the LCD monitor more than likey that is what happened! These can be repaired, but you will get charged an nominal amount. Better off getting a new one! You better get one soon, 17" monitors will soon be out, they will no longer be sold as the standard will soon be 19".

A white screen indicates the power supply board is not putting out the correct voltages to properly power the monitor, just the back light. This type of issue is caused by a failure of the filter capacitors on the power board. You can rebuild your power supply board and bring the monitor back to life by just replacing the the bad capacitors. The problem is that model the Acer AL1711 could come with 1 of 4 different power supply boards install depending and the date manufacturer and supply on hand. If you want to repair the monitor if you could open the unit and get either the model number of the power supply board or send a picture of the board to me I will be glad to help you repair the unit and get it back up and running. You can contact me to send the information at email@example.com
Most likely means your monitor is shot. Either the power supply crapped out or maybe a capacitor. Either way, if that's the case then you're going to need a new one because it's definitely too expensive to repair it.
Remove the battery and keep the battery unplugged.
Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds. (Nothing will appear on the display and none of the lights will light up.)
Release the power button and plug in the ac adapter ONLY. (Please note that a power indicator light should be lit on the ac adapter when it is plugged in).
Normally power on the notebook.
If the unit does not power on, remove the ac adapter and insert the battery into the system.
Plug the ac adapter back into the system, the battery charging indicator light will light up. If the battery charging indicator light does not light up, the ac adapter may not be providing proper power to the unit, and may need to be replaced.
I have the same problem on my Acer AL1711. The monitor was out of warranty so I opened it up and found one of the 1000 mf capacitor almost ready to pop. A 50 cents replacement from allelectronics.com fixed the problem.
Not recommended for anyone without experience soldering electronic components to PCB's.
Check your settings in "Power Options Properties".
Control panel/ power options/ advanced/ under power buttons make sure you have "shut down" when you press the power button on your computer.
I hope I am understanding your problem correctly. If not pls. explain what you mean by and when processing auto config. keeps flashing. Is there a black screen or a windows interface?
Hi. I have no experience with an AL1711 but this sounds very much like the power supply problem that affects the AL1715.
If you understand electronics then you need to check the power supply for faulty components (there were two faulty capacitors in my AL1715). Replacements should cost about 10p each and however much time it takes.
Unfortunately if you're not into electronics then there's really not much you can do.
If you do take the back off then please post whether you can see any faulty components.
Your monitor has disco fever and will have to be shot in a midnight ritual in Palm Springs. Or, you will have to replace a diac circuit linking the display, power control, and power supply grounds (or possibly an overvolt protector of some sort in the power supply.) I don't know why for this kind of error the designer couldn't just put a message on the OSD in some random human language.
