I have an Acer AL1715ebm LCD monitor. The VGA cable went bad a few inches above the plug. It is not a removeable cable. I e-mail Acer with no assistance to the wiring color codes to put a new plug on the cable and can't figure out how to take it apart without breaking it. I can install a new cable on it and match the wire colors if I can get it apart. The cable would change colors unless you bent it and eventually the picture cuts out unless you hold the vga cable bent in half. I would appreciate any help. I would hate to trash a monitor that still works great because of an unreplaceable cable. Thanks in advance

There may be a few ways of finding a solution to this problem. You may want to isolate the issue and see if it is a problem with your Acer monitor or your video driver for the PC. Try plugging the monitor into the VGA / DVI port of another PC or notebook. Also swap our the VGA/DVI cables in case that is the culprit. If the monitor works on another machine, then you may be facing a video display adapter error. Hope this advice helps!! Thanks for choosing FixYa.com!!
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.
