Possible monitor or graphics card malfunction

I recently bought an Acer computer from Wal-Mart that came with a wide-screen monitor. The computer has worked fine for about the past month but recently has had trouble starting up, or at least the screen has. The power button in the bottom right hand corner of the screen will start flashing a yellow light like it does when its starts up but will continue to do so and wont stop flashing even if the computer is off. I have unplugged the screen from the tower and its is still flashing even when i plugged it into a different outlet. Please help me with this.

The monitor is bad. The flashing is telling you that something inside the monitor has gone out. If it is still under warranty they should either fix your monitor or give you a replacement. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.

Acer Z223w Display Problem


This is either your monitor or, more likely, your graphics card telling you it's going to fail soon.
Try another monitor, if that sorts it you're done. If not, it's the video source (graphics card).

Acer s211 HL monitor, blibks like crazy and cant see video on full screen display, but works in small window format. Can not seem to download drivers from acer? Is it my drivers?


First check the resolution and refresh rate for your video graphics adapter. LCDs are apt to blink when not at 60 Hz. (Recently I had another client with that issue.) For Windows 7, right click on the desktop and choose Screen Resolution. Click on Advanced Settings and the Monitor tab. (Other versions of Windows will have this in a similar area or Control Panel > System > Display in some combination. Mac and Unix have this setting somewhere as well.) Also make sure that you are set for the native resolution or one supported by both the monitor and the graphics adapter.

Next check the temperature of the system. Improve the cooling of the system if the graphics card is overheating.

I hope this helps.

(who had the entire computer shut down when the graphics card overheated using full-screen video for on-line video. That was a major heat issue that had the CPU heat up too.)

My monitor boots up with a white screen only


Could be video card, cable or malfunction in the monitor, try another monitor to eliminate at least the possibility of it being a graphics card issue, thereafter, check connections from the computer to the monitor, if that fails, I'd suggest taking to a TV repairman

Normally, when the monitor is switched on, a blue screen is shown momentarily, with 'acer' right in the middle, before it shows the image that the computer is sending. But now, the screen does not show...


It sounds like either a bad signal input , possibly from a loose plug on the cable from the PC or bent pins on the plug / the video graphics card in the PC/ or the settings on the monitor need adjustment. Use the OSD (On Screen Display)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
First check to make sure both ends of the cable from the PC to the monitor are not damaged and are seated good & tight.
If those are fine then unplug both cables from the monitor & leave unplugged for 10 minutes or so to see if the screen has an automatic reset.
If that does not work then use the monitors OSD (On Screen Display) to adjust to default settings. If that does not work, plug the monitor into another known good PC.This will tell you right then if its the monitor or "Your" PC.

LCD screen jumps to the right when there is white on the screen.


Okay, best thing to try to do if possible. Try another known good working monitor on the DVI ports. If the screen still jumps then you know the video card is faulty. IF the known good monitor works on the video card then you know the original monitor is bad.

Computer won't recognize monitor driver


Its the usb, if u connect the monitor via the standard port, the vga port, it will work. If your monitor only have an dvi cable you can fix that by an adapter. That adapter should be an DVI to VGA.

Good luck to you

I have the same problem! Here's what I did: Go into the Display control panel, go to SETTINGS, click on ADVANCED, and then on the ADAPTER tab, then on LIST ALL MODES. There are several 1400 settings. Try them out and see which one is best for you.
