Question about Acer AL1706AB LCD Monitor

1 Answer

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!!!!

Hey I got an IBM T42. It boots fine when its clear but after that it horizontal lines being to appear througout the scree.


Hi,

Either you can hook up an external monitor or access BIOS setup (Basic Input/Output System) to replicate if the horizontal line appears. This step will check if the problem is with the video card or the LCD.

If you get the horizontal line on the BIOS or never get it on the external monitor, then surely the LCD screen is beginning to fail. You need to reinsert and/or replace the LCD inverter or LCD itself.

However, if you see the horizontal lines on the external monitor but not on the BIOS, try to update the video driver. If this will not resolve the issue, you need to replace the video card or the motherboard of your laptop.

Hope this helps.

I have this problem about my monitor, every time i open my computer a horizontal lines appear on my screen, my monitor is BenQ a flat screen ... can anyone tell me what happen and how to fix it ...thanks...


Could be multiple different issues here.

1) Your video card is getting old or if you recently replaced it may not work with your current PC.

2) Degauss your monitor using the settings directly on the monitor.

3) Download the latest drivers for your video card and mess around with the display resolutions as the card may not support your current resolution.

4) Your monitor itself may be the culprit and you need to send it in for repair.

If your still having issues, provide me a few more details about the problem and I may be able to further assist you.

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.

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

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.
