Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Flashing Screen As of right now, whenever I run Guildwars on my computer the monitor starts to flicker on and off after ~10-15 minutes. With the game minimized there seems to be no issue. At first I thought it was driver issues with the new G15 keyboard I bought but when I unistalled the drivers and hooked up my old keyboard I was still having the same problem.

Re: Flashing Screen

These games are so advanced that at times some of the issues that you encounter the problem lies with the particular machine you have, or the graphics card, or software installed. Remember these games are not tested on all systems. They are just tested on compatible systems granted you have something that runs on a similar OS and compatable machine. These games are tested in a closed environment on a certain type of machine. Trust me the machines they use are worth more than we are willing to spend! Sorry

On some games at 1920x1080 the screen doesn't fill up like it does on the desktop, and it has liek a flickering, vibrating sort of look.

Check to make sure you aren't running the game in a Window but in full screen mode. If you are running it in a Window this might effect the "refresh rate" for the window it is being run in which would account for the "flickering" effect.

Most games have a setup function. Select "video settings" from the Set Up Menu and make sure you are running the software in full screen mode and at the proper resolution and refresh rates.

Flashing on and off

I would suggest trying another monitor to rule out your PC or monitor card. I would also check the video settings on the PC. Then assuming your cable/connector and video card are okay, it sounds like a lamp or lamp driver (a.k.a. ballast or inverter) issue. In other words, an internal issue that probably needs component-level troubleshooting.
