Acer Monitor and Mac OS X issues?

I am running Mac OS x (10.3.9) on my Power PC G5 (dual 2.5ghz). Had no monitor issues, but with my new Acer AL2216W monitor, the monitor flickers (visually vibrates) then blacks out for a few seconds intermittently, gradually getting worse. I have tried to find a MAC driver to download, but ACER only offers drivers for Windows systems. so... is it the driver? is it the monitor?
thanks in advance.

SOURCE: Drivers for the Acer LCD monitor X193W under Windows XP Pro.

The acer LCD monitor is plug and play.You don't need a driver.But unless you have a graphics card that supports at least 1440x900 you have problems. Also if your card has a div connection, use that instead of the analog connector, The monitor comes with that connector. Use the old one to connect a second CRT monitor if you want. Don't connect both to the lcd monitor and to the computer unless you are using a second monitor. Like everything these days, every purchase seems to need an upgrade of sorts, On board graphics **** anyway. Buy at least a 128 MB graphic card with a digital connector and more RAM never goes astray.....

I have an Acer Monitor AL2216W and it will come on, the Acer name appears, then no signal and then the green light goes to orange. Is this the power supply or what?


It will go into sleep mode if it does not detect the signal from the PC. Try is with other PC first, also make sure the cable is seated properly.Basic LCD monitor and TV troubleshooting guide:

Acer AL2216W 22" LCD monitor. DVI input apparently


Not Good..
After you've checked that the video cable is connected properly, make sure that all the pins in the video cable plugs are straight and not broken off. Then test on another PC. Make sure your CMOS battery has not gone flat, as some PC's will fail to load basic drivers if CMOS memory is lost. The battery should show no less than 2.5v, if it's marked 3 volts when tested on a multimeter. If you can't test it, just buy a new one at the supermarket or hardware, usually around $4.00.
Next thing to try is your Video Card . If it is an on board one like most are now, there isn't anything you can do but try another card in an expansion slot or fit a new motherboard. At this point, I'm sad to say, you're better taking it to a PC shop where they will have a few things at their disposal to try.

I have same problem


Replace the following capacitors:

3 pcs - 220 microF - 25v
2 pcs - 1000 microF - 25v
1 pc - 2200 microF - 25v

Resolder the 2 transformer legs for the inverter.

no it is a board replacement at best, so i would look into replacing the vga board or getting a new monitor and selling the damaged one for parts with the issue listed

Horizontal banding that looks like Interference


i would take this in for a service check could be issues that need resolving from a service standpoint not a simple driver or resolution fix
