Acer AL1716 Monitor Troubleshoot

I recently re-installed Windows XP on my system and while re-installing programs and cd drivers I was asked to restart my computer so that the changes would take effect. However after restarting, my monitor loads up normal until it is to display my computer screen and it just says"Auto Config Please Wait" and that was since the night before. What can I do? Please help!

You can try the following: - Early (very) in the boot routine tap either F5 or F8 to access a short startup menu - Choose 'Safe Mode' (this should give you some kind of display) If it does give you a screen; - Click Start - Select Control Panel - Open the System folder - Click on Hardware - Choose Device Manager - Find and open Monitors - Highlight whatever monitor is listed and delete it
With your monitor turned on and connected, reboot your PC.
I can't guarantee it but this may force Windows 'Plug and Play (or Pray)' to look for, find and then finally install some kind of driver (may not look like you want) to get your Desktop visible again.
Then you can adjust settings in the ontrol Panel's Display section.
Your monitor could be causing the problem but it is more likely Windows doing whatever it feels like (or nothing at all) again.

Is there a way to get this monitor to work with windows xp??


It should have no problem as long as you have correct driver for your PC Video card, there is no need to install the monitor drivers. My PC for testing monitor is running XP as well.

You need to download and install the correct driver for your video card, right now the driver is the microsoft generic video driver that it is using. Go to your computer manufacturer/mother maker web site to download the correct drivers.

Screen will not display


Hi,
Have you ensured that your display card driver AND correct monitor driver is installed. This is to make sure that your display card only generates signals that your Acer monitor is capable of handling. If you do not have the driver CD for your monitor you can download the software from www.acer.com. The problem is most likely that your display card is generating a refresh rate which your monitor cant handle. Go to your display properties and lower the refresh rate of your display card and see if this solves the problem.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

My AL1716 doesn not work in DOS


Hi

The screen probably does work in DOS but the laptop doesn't bother sending it any signal in DOS, it's only when windows starts that windows takes control of the displays and shoots out a signal to the external monitor

I don't know how you would get round this because you can't see your BIOS which you need to go in to and set the primary monitor to external.
