Ive just been given a couple of Acer monitors with 2 matching problems, when I switch my monitors on I only get a signal for about 10 seconds and then blacks out and continues to do so, odd times I might manage to keep one on after an hour or so.Any ideas on what it could be?
Ive checked my cables - fine
graphics card - fine
need help !!

Reset the cmos usualy a jumper, or remove the batery for 10 min, it might be a videocard problem, try another videocard. It might be a memoryproblem. If you hear bleeds google for biosbeebs and that will show you wich bleeb is what error. If all else fails change processor and powersuply or finaly the motherboard. Good luck!
check whether the signal cable properly connected to the vga port or not ?
2.listen the single beep from PC
3.try monitor on another PC . if persists , then the fault lies in the monitor . if not then the fault is in the CPU
4.if no beep from CPU then disconnect RAM . listen contineus beep . if heard , then the RAM is faulty , replace it .
I see many monitor with that trouble.
When you turn on comp., you can have a picture on monitor about 10-30 min. and that go in black screen, or If you change resolution again go in black screen.
You must repair monitor or bay another.
Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.
Just got off the phone with Acer Suppport. This was after I sent an email to them, that suggested that I call. 8-/ annoying. So the guy on the phone says there is one thing that we can do before sending it in. Unplug it completely for the wall and computer. Hold the on/off button in for 30 secs. reconnect power and the computer. It worked for me
What do you mean by it takes awhile to come on? Sometimes with these monitors depending on the type you have it takes time for the PC to pick up the signal. I have my PC hooked up to a KVM switch and it takes about 10 to 20 seconds for my monitors signal to be recognized.
