If it gives you message about the resolution, set the computer to use native resolution of the monitor. You can change the resolution by right clicking on desktop and choosing "screen resolution".

I have hooked my Acer 1912 monitor up to my toshiba laptop as a second screen. When I select a resolution of 1280 x 1024, the display on the monitor slides over five inches to the right and I only see half...


Friend,
On the monitor go to settings and shift the screen to the left till the display is correct. However, please check for other resolutions after you have shifted. May be the monitor is not geared up to take on 1280 X 1024. Check that as well.

I keep getting an ''Auto Config Please Wait'' sign popping up non stop in a grey box on the center of my screen. How do I stop it?????


once you are online, go to the website for the monitor, and download the latest drivers. if that doesn't help, go to computer makers site, and do same thing. Seems the driver you need is absent from operating system.

My acer AL1912 monitor keeps going fuzzy. It kind


An unusual problem for a flat screen monitor.
I suggest you connect the monitor to another PC to see if the problem persists since it could also be caused by the video card (or circuit, if on board).
Check your cables making sure they are solidly connected and wiggle them to see if you can cause the problem to come or go away; this would crudely check the shielding of them.
This kind of aberration could easily happen with a conventional CRT monitor if power supply filtering was failing but as mentioned, uncommon in a monitor that is essentially digital.

No Signal


Not all monitors can display the same resolutions. You may have has the Dell monitor set at something the Acer can not handle. Try rebooting and if you can see the Dell startup screen press F8 as soon as it disappears. This will give you the Windows Startup Options menu, which is text and should display on any monitor. Then select VGA MODE, which is the lowest common denominator for graphics. You should be able to see the Windows display at a much lower resolution (ie, larger fonts and icons) than usual until you can reset your graphics properties to work with the new monitor.

Config screen keeps popping up


A friend of mine had the exact same same problem. I think I fixed it, because it has been 2 hours, without the menu popping up. You need to open the monitor:

- Place it face-down on a flat surface
- Remove the cover of the hinge by gripping it with both hands and gently squeezing and pulling.
- Undo the 4 screws and remove the stand (base)
- Undo the four screws tha hold the cover down (4 corners)
- Use a flat screwdriver to seperate the 2 halves (I used 2, a small one to lift the back, a bigger one for leverage)

You will see a small PCB, fastened by 3 screws, at the bottom (where your menu+on/off buttons are) with a ribbon connection to the screen. Next:

- Unscrew the PCB, and gently lift it out.
- Clean the microswitches and the ribbon cable connection.
- Reassemble the monitor.

To clean microswitches and the connection, I used Kontakt Video 90 spray. There must be sprays on the market where you are. It's basically an alcohol-based cleaning spray. Good for cleaning video/tape/floppy heads, CD/DVD lenses, memory modules, etc.

Good luck!
