Question about Acer AL1716 17" LCD Monitor

ACER AL1716 acting up BAD!

Never had this problem before. I have owned this screen for about a year now and I can't even use my computer anymore because of this problem. When my monitor has power(on or off) it continuously makes some weird high pitched noise which does not stop, even if the tower is not on. When I turn my computer on, the noise gets more noticable but is still high pitched. The Windows loading screen comes up, screen goes black, loading screen comes up... You guys get the idea. As I said above, sometimes if the Windows loading screen doesn't appear, a blue screen with white writing appears taking its place in the pattern, but I can't read it becuase it disapears so quickly. Why is this problem happening out of nowhere, and what can it be?

Be more specific. I guess your monitor has inbuilt speakers which are making noise. If yes do come back for a solution.

Powers on, screen is black

Try it on another computer, if it still does not work, then you will need to open it up. More likely to have bad caps (leaking/bulging tops). Please see my pictures here so you will know what to look for inside.
Please post back.

Acer al1716 monitor flicks green and orange and screen remains black

I would say that is not receiving a signal from your computer.
Can you swap out monitors to see if another one works?

Most probably, if you see no error messages at all, you have a bad video card (assuming the computer is actually starting up).

Acer al1716 dont work

When the LCD monitor display flickers and or has a black screen then the fault is usually a faulty inverter or the CCFL lamp. When you look at the screen at a sharp angle and you see a dim image then it is a backlight problem and it is caused by a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp.

Acer AL1716 monitor

First of all check your monitor's color configurations using the buttons in the monitor. Then, if colors are set to default, go to your GPU's control panel, usually found by right clicking your desktop and finding an option that says ie. Nvidia control panel. Go to video control settings and/or desktop color settings and either restore defaults or configure them yourself if you know what you are doing. Hope that helps.

Acer monitor does not show anything except acer

"have three and same problem on different computers"
- you have 3 what? If you tried 3 different computers with the same monitor, your monitor might be bad and need repair. If your computer works fine with a different monitor, then it is your monitor that is the problem.

I do not recommend hat you attempt to fix monitors on your own.

Acer AL1716 Power problem?

i have experienced the same problem (power cycles on and off and on and off... nothing but Acer logo and black screen) on 2 Acer model 1706 A version 1706 Ab monitors both built in July 2006. Before the customer reported the 2nd monitor with the same problem, i sent the 1st one into Acer for warranty service (after testing in on 4 machines w/4 different video cards). They shipped it back with a paper saying the monitor was repaired. I returned the monitor to the customer and it exhibited the same symptoms (aka, not repaired). Could there have been a bad batch in July 2006? When I plug a new Acer AL1716 monitor into the same computers, I have no problems at all.
