I hooked up my new acer p191w monitor to my dell inspiron 1525 laptop ,at first everything was fine i followed the instructions to a T.Then yesterday i did a virus scan on my computer and it was late and i shut the monitor off manually and left the laptop on and went to bed.When i woke up there was no image on my acer monitor.I tried everything that i could think of to fix it,i shut everything down and undid the cables and started over that didnt work.The monitor does work when i turn it on the blue power light comes on and the acer start screen shows for a few seconds then the orange light comes on and it says no signal.When i first hooked it up and turned on my computer it gave me the option of how i wanted to veiw the monitor and i chose the mirror veiw where the same image is displayed on both computer and monitor.I just want to get back to do that again.I cant return it to circut city i lost the reciept.Thanks a million in advance,all and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Not sure what the problem is, but I would suggest pressing the Fn+F5? There is a function key that toggles from dual screen, just the laptop screen or just the monitor. Hope that helps..

Monitor brighness shuts off

It sounds like the backlight circuits are not working, it can be due to bad power supply.
Most common failure in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, 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 monitors to get some ideas what to look for:
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

That can be the soldering joint at the lamp assembly is bad. It will cause the inverter circuits to go into shutdown mode. You should also inspect the power supply caps also.

Acer P191W smears all objects

brianfh01, Hi, I'm louie12fix. Can't say we will be able to fix, but we can try some different things. Will P191W do same stuff if connected to different PC? Did it work (perform perfectly) one day, and then act like junk the next day? Did you check with ACER about warranty service?? Are you using this unit for business or home? Can you, or did you connect different monitor to the pc that the P191W was connected? I certainly would be trully ********** if a 4month old monitor didn't perform to specification. Did you buy it locally or online? If local, maybe the store will swap it out for you. Bye for now. Get back to me at louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel

My new Acer P191W LCD Monitor has a high pitched whine that is extra loud on pages with rich and dark colors.

The PSU "power supply unit is taken on a lot of noise from the outlet. Can you tell us if you have it streight plugged into to a 120V AC outlet or is it plugged into a strip? The Solution for both is NEW strip i recommend APC or plug it into a strip and check the outlet and make sure its properly grounded this should shore up this problem or the unit itself is going out.
