Re: Black screen, power button flicks
The monitor should come when the power button is pressed once - period. If not, and it continues to happen when connected to another PC, then the hardware is having trouble powering up the panel / ccds and it should be replaced/serviced according to the terms of the warranty. I suggest to bring it to an authorized service center for proper diagnosis & fix the problem. regards

Nothing is more annoying than a monitor that refuses to turn
on. Make sure your Acer monitor is plugged in to a functioning outlet.
If it's plugged into a power strip, try replacing it with a new one or
moving the plug to a different outlet. Ensure that both ends of the
power cable are plugged in firmly and securely, and that the connection
to the monitor is not loose.
Your Acer LCD monitor will usually accept DVI and VGA
inputs. If you have an older computer, a VGA cable should work fine. If
it doesn't have a VGA port, you'll need to obtain an inexpensive DVI to
VGA adapter at your local computer store. A DVI cable, however, is
compatible with most modern computers and offers superior picture
quality over VGA. Make sure you're using the cable that's compatible
with your system, and that you have the proper conversion adapter, if
Connect the monitor to a different computer, to see if the monitor works at all.
Connect a different monitor to your computer, to see if your computer really is "sending" a video-signal through the "data" cable. If not, then either the data-cable or the video-card inside the computer is faulty.
I switch on my PC, ensuring that all cables, leads
and power supplies are connected properly. The tower powers up no
problems at all. I switch the screen on, the green led lights up, the
screen is completely black. A blue box appears centrally on the screen
with the text 'power saving mode'. The green led light turns amber and
then the screen just goes black.
Please don't suggest going to control panel, as I can't get that far.
Hi sglick - you will need to do a few simple trouble shooting steps to pinpoint the problem, as this can be cause by several different things.
Follow these steps and reply back with your findings:
1. Unplug the monitor power cable, wait about 30 seconds, reconnect the cable and then turn on the monitor. This resets the electronics on the monitor.
2. Make sure the monitor has power - the light on the monitor is on. If the light on the monitor is off, the monitor does not have power. Connect it to a different power outlet.
3. If the monitor has a detachable video cable, obtain a second monitor cable for testing purposes in case the cable is bad.
4. Disconnect all connected devices except the mouse, keyboard and monitor. This includes thumb drives and camera-type memory cards from card reader slots. With the devices disconnected, restart the computer. If the computer starts and the monitor now displays a picture, a device is preventing the computer from starting or sending a proper video signal to the monitor. Update the BIOS to resolve this issue.
If doing all of this doesn't change your issue of no video after seeing it pop on, try the monitor on a different computer/laptop, and if you have one, a different monitor on the system with the problem.
Let us know what you find following these steps and we can figure out what to do next.
How old is the computer? Make sure that the power light comes onto the monitor when you plug it in, should be orange and then turn green when video card syncs with it when PC is turned on. If you are getting black screen when PC is powered on:
1. Bad video card
2. Bad video cable
3. Bad monitor
1Solution: Try using a different monitor attached to this same PC and see if it works. If it does, then its the monitor, its cable, or its power supply. If it doesn't work, then its the video card or the video cable coming from monitor.
plug in a different monitor temporarily, check your display settings (right click background, settings, advanced, monitor)
and set refresh rate to 60hz.
plug in this monitor again and see if that helps
some monitors (lcd's especially) cannot handle beyond 60hz
