Question about Acer AL1706AB LCD Monitor

Acer Monitor AL1706 freezes w/ horizontal lines after burning cd

I'm not sure if this is an issue with my monitor, video card or what. But sometimes after I finish burning a cd or a dvd (I have 2 drives: DVD/CDR and DVD/CDRW drive) the screen freezes with a bunch of weird horizontal multi-color lines. Whenever this happens, the entire system locks up and I have to reboot.

Sometimes this happens before the burn is complete, other times this happens right after it finishes burning the cd or dvd. I got this computer built a last year (07) and the monitor is a refurb. Acer LCD Monitor Model # AL1706A ab. I still have the warranty but I wasn't sure if this was truly a monitor issue since it only happens after I burn a cd. Please HELP!!!!

There is a thin yellow horizontal line on my right display


This is definitely a hardware problem. Either your AGP/video card is not functioning properly. But the more likely problem is that your monitor color blending function in that particular line is not working.

You need to get the monitor check by an expert technician. Don't take chances.

Acer AL1706 A monitor powers up green light is on but screen blinks out


you have a bad power supply, it maybe fixed. you have bad back lights in the screen, usally too expensive to replace with the cost of labor. you have a bad invertor, this will start the back lights. you need to open the rear cover and look at the power supply to see if you can find a burned componet or exploded componet. if you see a bad , burned componet a local electronics repair shop usually can fix it.

There are two possibilities: That the monitor is bad, or that the video board is bad.
The easiest way to test is to install a different monitor and see if it does the same.
If it does the same, then it is the video board. If not, it is the monitor.

My acer al1716 has been showing 2 horizontal lines from the middle of the screen to the top after changing the video card to a nvidia geforce9400 GT. how can i get rid of these lines?


It sounds like a connection problem, if i understand this right. So, you either need a new monitor, but check your input connection to the computer, see if it's in all the way. And your gonna need a new monitor range from 200-400 for the 20" range. Good luck!!!

My monitor will randomly turn on or off...


Hello there:
what you will need to do is boot the machine into bios setup screen and look under the section where you see the video graphics section and click on it now look to see if it says agp or pci it should be set to your type of a video card either pci or agp if it is set to pci and you have a agp type card than switch it to agp or you can do vice versa and see which one works the best for your system ok?
Tthan simply save settings and reboot.
this should take care of the problem.
best regards michael

Acer x223w issues- freezes


I think it could be an issue with resolution. Since the monitor is so big, some video cards, I noticed, can't support the high resolutions that the monitor can, if that doesn't work try 16-bit instead of 32-bit.

Horizontal lines


Horizontal blur can be caused by both a bad monitor or a bad video card/Card Slot on the motherboard.

The easiest way to check this is to connect the monitor to a known good system. If the problem follows the monitor to the good system, the monitor is bad and will need replacement. If it works fine on another system the problem is the video card/slot

Acer Monitor Doesn't Receive Signal From Computer


can you test your monitor on another computer to verify the monitor is at fault? If the monitor is at fault its time for a new one, factory warranties on monitors are usually 1 year unless you purchased an extended warranty.Otherwise repair is usually more costly than buying a new one.

Horizontal lines on my monitor


I have a similar problem with a 2 year old Samsung monitor. I have tried to make a screen dump of it, but the horizontal lines do not show up then. This I have read indicates that the problem is in the monitor and not the video card.
