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.

No display on screen in Acer aspire 5830TG with GeForce 540


If it shows on an external monitor but not on the laptop screen, either the screen ribbon cable has come loose, the inverter/ccfl has died or the lcd screen has died.

If you boot your laptop to external monitor, then unplug the monitor - try shining a flashlight across the screen to see if you can see any dataicon1.png/screen info - if you can, then the inverter/ccfl has died. If not, either the screen has died or the cable has come loose

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).

I recently purchased a 19"


Your computer graphics, whether onboard or graphics card does not support this resolution.

I think it is a driver problem, click here to download and install the latest drivers.

Fill in the details and select search then download and install.
You may need to purchase a more powerful graphics card.

How to adjust LCD wide monitor to a higher


This error is typical of an incorrect video driver has been installed.
To check the installed video driver go to Control Panel - Display - Settings tab - Advance button - Adapter tab. This shows the adapter/driver. If it shows VGA graphics card or not the model of your graphics card then you need to download the correct graphic/video driver and install it. You will then able to configure the display at a higher resolution and at the highest color bit (ie 32 bit if there is sufficient video RAM installed).

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.

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.
