Question about Acer AL1917 LCD Monitor

Open Question

AL1917 doesn't show a picture on Lenovo 3000 n100. The latter says someting like "no external monitor is connected"

I used 2 work with external Acer AL1917 on my PC. After running some program, which checks drivers, I can't use my external monitor ("no signal" appears on its screen). Also the combination Fn+F7 no more works on PC. When I tune the Presentation Director 2 work with AL1917 as an external monitor, PD behaves as if the external monitor can't be found. The Driver Detector reports that AL1917 driver is OK.

SOURCE: Acer AL1916W 19" problem

Hello mat78, Unfortunatelly the problem is hardware based. You will need to have the monitor repaired in a service center. Here's why: LCD/TFT monitors don't produce light themselves. They are composed by a matrix of transistors (TFT - thin film transistor) that have the property to reflect or allow some light (certain wavelenghts)to pass through them. They don't produce light by themselves. Instead there is a fluorescent tube (neon like) light inside the monitor and that's the light source used in order for you to see what's on the screen. A flourescent light is suposed to last pretty much, i don't think yours has a problem, you say it works for some seconds or so. Instead your problem is most probable with the inverter circuitry that powers on that light. It's a common problem among these types of monitors but in your situation i don't think it will be an expensive repair. In the case that the screen is dark (in a dark place you can't read or view anything on it) but if you apply light to it ( a flashlight or something) and you see something, then the problem is most likely to have occured with the invertor. Try to ask at a local service center for a repair, this shouldn't be an expensive procedure. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: ACER LCD monitor no image, appears white color only

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.

Problems like this are usually the fault of the video card and not the monitor. Does your video card support 1440 X 900? Try updating your video card drivers.

SOURCE: 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

Does the power on light show on either the OS monitor or the external monitor? If so, and no picture, it is likely to be the graphics card has failed. If in warranty return.

How do i enable my wireless connection on my lenovo 3000 N100


Hi,

The wireless switch is at the front side of your Lenovo 3000 N100. (see pic.1). Press Fn+F5 to confirm if your wireless switch is on. If required, switch on the physical switch for your wireless connection.

Lenovo 3000 n100 lcd display works but only less than a minute before display goes black. Connect an external monitor and it works fine.


possible problem is your led light on your LCD or its Flex. you might need to have it replaced. Try to check your LCD when it turns black under the light if you can see a dark image of your desktop. If you can see your desktop then the backlight has a problem. If there is no display, your LCD needs to be replaced.

Hi. I think the LCD screen of your laptop needs a replacement because I think the backlight on that LCD is already busted thats why you need to point a flashlight or some sort of light just to see the display. Powerdraining your computer wont work because this already a hardware issue with the LCD, that's why when you switch display with your monitor it works fine. I would suggest replacing the LCD of that laptop or try calling Lenovo tech support if your laptop still under warranty so that they would replace it for free. This is no. to contact for your Lenovo laptop US/Canada 1-800-426-7378, Australia 1-300-880-917. Hope this Helps

Lenovo 3ooo c100 notebook


That is either :

Faulty LCD ribbon cable or connector slipping off.

Faulty LCD screen.

Faulty video adapter on laptop motherboard.

To find out you connect laptop to an external monitor.

If the problem persists on external monitor, then you have a faulty video chipset on motherboard.

If the picture is good on external monitor, then problem concerns LCD panel , or LCD cable on laptop.

Prob to get wireless internet connection of lenevo 3000 N100


Hmmm 3000 N100 comes by default with the Intel wireless 3945abg. There is a problem with the XP driver that you can grab off their website I fear, that is probably why it worked in vista, but not in xp. Had a lot of users coming to me with this issue

Try replacing your driver with this driver:

http://www.driversdown.com/drivers/Lenovo-3000-N100-Notebook-Intel-wireless-3945abg-driver-10.5.1.59-Windows-XP_79954.shtml

That one should be the most up to date driver. Please get back to me if this resolved the issue or not. If not, then tell me if you see even the available wireless networks or not at all. Does the network card show up fine in the device manager or do you got any marks on it like a red cross or a question mark?

If the solution helped, please rate me. :)
