Check to make sure the cables are connected tightly. Wiggle the cable, does it get better or worse? Might need a new cable. And reseat the video card inside the computer. If that doesn't fix it, then yes you will probably need a new monitor.

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

No signal means you have a different input enabled TV/HDMI/VGA 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

While uninstalling unnecessary software I probably uninstalled my speakers and now I do not have sound on my PC my speakers are built in the ACER AL1917 screen can you please help me

There is no such thing as speaker driver, but more likely you have uninstalled the sound card driver or it got corrupted, that will be the first place to check. Please download the driver from your PC maker website and install it. You should also look at the devices manager to see if the sound card is present.

The monitor drive is only for allowing the resolution and some color adjustment that the OS may not have, the scrolling problem more like to be the PC mouse or setting problem.

I need to know how to remove the footstand from my acer al1917 monitor pleas.

The wide black cover that seems to be part of the monitor on the back is in fact removable. Put your fingers/nails on the small gap on the underside and pull. There is some resistance but it is not too hard. Then you find 4 screws. Unscrew and voilà ... fixed!

Acer AL1917 Monitor does not start up immediately.

You'll need to have your power board -inverter redone.
The capacitors are starting to fail and that eventually will stop it all together.
I repair many monitors through ebay with these types of problems.
If you take it apart and send me a picture, I can usually see the problem areas.

Acer AL1716 monitor flickers

i Have the same problem, this screen is used on the spare computer we have in a loft conversion and the room does get rather cold, Warming the screen up with a fan heater for a couple of minutes gets rid of the problem. When the fault occurs the buttons on the front to adjust the picture quality don't work they just turn off the monitor.
