Question about Acer AL1917 19 inch LCD Monitor

1 Answer

External Acer AL1917 stopped to work with Lenovo 3000 n100 as an external monitor.

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.

No signal means you have a different input enabled somewhere...like TV/HDMI/VGA ...you are set on some input other than the one you need for your cable. Check the menu settings, if you have a remote, try the input button and try a different setting

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.

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

Welcome to Fixya

Try to drain the electrostatic charge of the motherboard that usually cause this issue. I wrote a tip on how to do the power drain. Try to plug in external monitor on the VGA port and see if you are getting display using external monitor. If you are getting display using external monitor then the problem would be the laptop LCD. If you are getting the same black screen using external monitor then the problem is already the motherboard.

Thank you for using Fixya!

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.

Can I send an s-video signal from my Lenovo laptop to the tv..???


yes, if you have an S-video out port you can.
once you have the cable connected to both pieces of equipment, you will need to push the signa. to the external screen. not sure what buttons are used on the Lenovo, but you can look that up. You may need to adjust your display settings to allow for the external video screen

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

Does it recognize the devices in the first place? If it does then it could be the operating system is not compatible with the devices. If it doesn't, then you will have load the drivers for the onboard USB. You could check this through the Device Manager. Good luck.
