For flat panel systems there are 2 inputs. DVI using the white cable and VGA. by default flat panels are set to DVI input. hit the menu button on the screen and there should be an option there to change the input video. if this will not work it could be a problem on the video port on your acer computer or it could you might need a new VGA cable.

Acer TravelMate 273X: Screen remains blank after laptop loads

Hi , its very simple. it will work , but you need to be patient enough. It may take few hours but it will. First of all answer one thing ? did you fiddle with your comp parts, ex Ram or Hard disc or charger. if yes. Do the following. Take out the power , remove the battery, take out the Ram ( if you have two slots for ram , change the slot for one and remove other ram) . Now , press and hold the power button for 30 sec or so, connect the power and release the power button. once it starts connect the battery later on. IF you fail , do all the steps again again till it starts. Believe me it will work , I had same prob, I made a research on this , my comp is back from death. Since then its one year, no prob. You need to believe me and yourself. It will 100% start , you try for a hour or so and leave it , try again after some time or next day. It took for my research and fo my comp rebirth , nearly 15 days. But its back and 100%. I try to fiddle again with ram one day , its gone , but already I knew how to bring it back and I did it in first attempt. Once it starts , its better to reload the windows. Each time you remove the ram ( use only one ram if you have two) change the positions and remember them. You will , and you will. but remember everything I wrote. thanks.

Dell E172FP 17 monitor keeps blinking

That sounds like the backlight inverter board. Check ebay for the board or a repair kit for it.
