Monitor dims for one account, not the other

I have a 3 month old Acer aspire and AL1916 monitor. As of last nite, whenever I switch from my GF's user account to my own, the screen dims dramatically. So much so that I can hardly read anything on it. Once I log off of my account and back into hers, the screen comes back at normal brightness. Then, going back to my user account, the screen dims again. What can I do to fix this? Thank you for any help you can give me.

Re: Monitor dims for one account, not the other

I would first contact the GF administrator and ask them if they've heard of this before. Then I would contact Acer.

How to change monitor aspect ratio for acer AL1916

The aspect ratio is expressed as two numbers separated by a colon (x:y). and they actually represent the relation between width and height of (in your case) your monitor.

Did you mean to change the resolution of your monitor? Could you please explain your problem in more detail? What is it exactly you want to achieve?

I was given a 2003 Acer AL1916 monitor and came home and hooked it up to my old Compaq presario computer. The screen is fine but the audio is barely audible. I had speakers hooked to the side of my old...

The speakers are not supposed to plug into the monitor, they will plug into the speaker jack on the back of your computer (usually a green plug or it will have a picture of a speaker next to it)
Hope this helps
Good Luck!

Screen goes dim under different user

could be an issue of his resolution and refresh rate settings are close to being out of range for the monitor. Try lowering these settings to get better performance.

This may not be a Monitor problem. So if you can try to get to test monitor on another computer. Check carefully the data cable to ensure there are no bent pins. If it turnout to be a monitor problem then at only 6 months -Acer should replace it. If the monitor works - you should have the graphics card on the computer checked out. If you feel you can do this - and you can- basic checks come back as another request.
