Re: my dvd driver doesn't work
Sometimes the drivers for any hardware device may become corrupted. Go into Device Manager and write down the model and make of the DVD player. Go to the manufacturers website and download the latest driver or right click on the DVD in Device Manager and it may allow you to download driver at that point. Regardless, you need a new driver to fix this problem. Hope this helps

if you burn this dvd by yourself then there must be problem with the X speed of your DVD ROM drive.Most of DVD rom drives does not play dvds scratched and old dvds.Lens of your dvd rom may be faulty.If DVD is new and its condition is better then there must be problem in your PC.Proper dvd player is not installed in your pc.I would recommend KM player or K-lite media codec pack.You can easily get them on google or at www.download.cnet.com/
What I have understood is that the resolution of the Windows is way too high for the monitor.
Remedy. reboot in safe mode and when booted, right click on the desktop and select Properties->Settings. It will show you the display settings including the resolution. Reduce the resolution and keep the highest that the monitor can take. You may have to reboot a number of times.
All the best.
The problem you have is caused by a shorted power supply board. This is a easy repair if you can solder. We have a step by step repair guide posted on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com This should get you back going again. if you have any questions just let us know.

If you have your proof-of-purchase and it shows the monitor is less than a year old, it would be covered. You would need to follow the procedure on their website to have the unit repaired or replaced, but it would not be your job to try to fix it.
If you know how to open it up and get to the power supply you will find three capacitors 2-820uf and 1-330 @ 25vdc 105o.they will have puffed up tops replace them. FYI the monitor has a 3 year warranty.
Quickly go to the Acer website and check FAQ's and while there also find out how to get an RMA to return it. My guess is you have a bad monitor. At $200 roughly for a replacement I would hustle. I am assuming you got nothing but a white screen but did get video on your TV.
