Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

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 monitor and I am using the speakers the other people used with the Acer which are desktop. There is no where to hook them to the monitor. Any suggestions?

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!

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'm guessing the different monitors are different sizes? The only thing a driver for a monitor will do will tell the computer the max resolution that the monitor will be able to go up to. However most 90% of monitors can use the built in windows driver without issues. Your best bet is going to be to change the resolution on the monitor. To do this you can either hook up the old monitor, lower the resolution, and then plug in the other monitor. Or you can boot the computer into VGA low resolution mode by pressing F8 as the computer starts up and selecting that option. From there you can lower the resolution, and then put it at something more desirable with the new monitor.
The other possibility being your Gateway monitor is actually malfunctioning and you just happened to hook up a bad monitor.

Green Flash power only on one computer


It sounds like the monitor functions properly and your computer functions properly, but the combination causes a problem. Try making sure the screen resolution on your main computer is set to an acceptable resolution for your monitor - AL1916. Try setting it low to 800x600 and move up from there until it doesn't work anymore. You can change the screen resolution from the Display Settings (right click on the desktop and select Display Settings) window.

MONITOR PROBLEM


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.
