Question about Acer AL2016W 20" LCD Monitor
If I open an application that requires to go full screen, my lcd just blinks and i get a black screen. I have to turn off my monitor for like 10 minutes then reopen it in order for it to work again. It also happens if i switch it on/off/on. I have the proper driver installed.My resolution is set to 1680x1050 and I tried my monitor on another computer and it does the same thing. Thanks for your help.

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!
