The AL1916W's native resolution is 1440 x 900. See if your display settings can produce that resolution.

SOURCE: 'Input Format Not Supported' (please help me!)

OK try booting up in "Safe Mode" Press F8 just after Turn on, when and if ya boot into safe mode then adjust your Video settings to say 1024x768x32bit and then reboot, if all good then when you are at the desktop, then adjust the settings to whatever you require... maybe 1280x1024x32bit.. Ya all good. If this doesn't work.. try the Monitor on another PC.. see if it works... if it does.. then maybe ya Video card is going/gone "Toes up" if not, then ya got a fault in your monitor, usually some sort of Power Supply problem or the like.

SOURCE: monitor goes black

Sorry to have to tell you this, but this is common in LCD monitors. The reason that it is going black when it boots is for one of two reasons. You either have a bad power supply that powers your LCD or your LCD's backlight is blown. These can be repaired or you can purchase a new one. But if it goes black 9 times out of 10 is because the backlight is bad. These can be repaired!

Hello,

This type of problem is usually caused by a failure in the power supply board. Here is a link to a repair guide that shows how to dis-assemble and repair the power supply board. If you can do a little soldering then you can repair the monitor.

Is ACER al2016W monitor dual-voltage?



Voltage Required AC 120/230 V

Yes Bob, you can use it in UK 240V and I believe no adjustments required since they are swithed mode power supplies.

Just to make sure have look at the data label at the back of the monitor it should say AC 120/230V. UK 240 is OK since there is a +/- 10% variation allowed on that.

I got the information out of the specifications on line, so you should be OK.

Monitor lcd acer al2016w 20" letters and image are fuzzy,,why?


I also have an Asrock motherboard (M266A) and have the AL2216W. The image and text is also fuzzy. I did improve it a by by unplugging/replugging all of the connectors on the back of the computer. I believe my mouse had a somewhat loose connection and this was causing interference. I can actually create interference on screen by moving my mouse up and down.
These Acer monitors seem to be very sensitive. I also tried this monitor on a old Desktop with Win98 and another new laptop with XP and it looks good on those computers, but not on my Asrock based system.
