Although the monitor seems to work fine, every time the computer is booted up a message is displayed that the monitor(device) has not been installed properly. I attempted to install a driver, but I cannot not find one on the internet and the CD that game with the monitor does not seem to work

If the monitor displays POST messages as it boots, then your monitor is still working. It would appear that either your video card or your monitor settings need fixing. Try booting Windows in SAFE MODE and go to Control Panel. Select Display Settings and uninstall the existing driver for your video card.
Reboot your machine. Windows should detect your video card and install its proper drivers. If you've gotten this far, your monitor is working.
Failing the above, reboot in SAFE MODE again and this time uninstall your monitor. Try rebooting again and Windows should again detect, configure and install your monitor appropriately.
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
Sounds to me like the input has gone out of the boundaries the monitor supports. IE the refresh rate is too high frequency (normally 60 to 72 Hertz for LCD's) or the screen resolution has been set too high.
Go into safe mode and set it back to 1024 X 768 at a frequency of 60 Hz, once back into windows proper you can try higher resolutions and change your refresh, if the screen goes black or displays a message "Out of Bounds" or similar it should revert after 15 seconds if left alone.
First you need to uninstall the driver for your old monitor. Then install the driver for the new monitor. With both drivers installed your computer is confused and shows the conflict as an error message. Hope this helps.
I tried both suggestions above and neither worked. 1) Hitting the monitor buttons as stated only got me a "digital" message and then the monitor went black as usual. Never got to any menu options. 2) Going into Safe Mode and changing the monitor settings or downloading/installing the correct driver didn't stick once you went back to the normal startup.
I didn't have another monitor handy to swap out so I had to be a little more creative. The only solution that worked for me is re-booting (F8 during startup) into the mode "Enable VGA Mode". This allowed me to go into the normal desktop with a screen resolution of 800x600. I went online, found the driver, downloaded it to the desktop. Deleted the video driver (Device Manager), installed the downloaded version, rebooted and....no problems.
I have Windows XP. Hope I've helped someone today. :)
as it is not always sometimes only.
this might be due to over oscillation in horz. stage.means more eht.
it might be due to
1 power supply seems to be more then normal.
2 horizontal frequrncy not tunned properly if any preset is there.
3 loose contact in hor. section
4 some times it is due to connecting cable from monitor to computer.
