Question about Acer P191WBD LCD Monitor
My 7 month old Acer Monitor Model P191W started displaying 4, evenly spaced, magenta colored vertical stripe sets about an hour ago (May 13, 2009). Each of the sets contains 16 vertical stripes. There also are some dots in a few grid patterns in the same color. There also is some blue color to portions of the stripes and some of the dots. Acer's help line had me unplug the VGA cable and press Reset in the monitor menu, but that didn't help.
Staples office supply store said it was the monitor and, after buying and installing a new $200 monitor, I discovered it wasn't the monitor. I brought my hard drive to a reputable computer repair place, who charged me $50 total to install a new video card. He also supped up my hard drive with an additional 512K ram for $20 and now things are so much better. You were right! It was the video card.

Try using a diffrent computer on this and see if its not the video card doing it or if not its the controller board inside that connect to the video card that would need to be replaced at this time, if there are no dead or stuck pixels it might be worth replacing rather then buying a new one.
