When you plug in a headset or mic into the bottom or the side of the monitor, this should automaticly disable the internal speakers on the monitor.

Why does it take so long to see my desktop icons when I power on my Acer AL1717 monitor?

bsellers, Tell me in "seconds", "minutes", how long is "so long". Do you even see the "boot screen" pop-up when booting the pc? You should see that first if lcd monitor is turned on first. Are you running a Windows OS? Will a "known-good" VGA monitor work ok when connected to your PC?? Will your AL1717 do same thing when connected to different "known-good" PC?? Did you even look at the "date of manufacture" on the rear of your monitor? Retrevo .com lists 1717 as time to retire??? Was your unit produced in "06" or "07"?? Let me know results of doing some simple "swap-out" tests. 12fixlouie

Vertical Red Line down the screen of my Acer Al1717.

Try hooking an external monitor. If it will still show on the other display, possibly it is a video card problem. But I highly doubt it. Usually for this issue, it will have a good display on an external monitor. Try if it will still appear n the BIOS page. Press F2 several times immediately after turning the computer on. If problem still shows there, then it is the LCD that is causing it to happen. You need to replace the LCD.

Frequency disturbance at monitor

evidently there is a loose connection within one of the ribbon cables going to the screen, you will have to open the monitor and reseat them.
otherwise quit using the internal speakers as the vibration may kill the monitor dead.

No audio


Pls check if the audio settings on the monitor are correct. Along with the monitor menu button, there will be another button for audio for some models. For other models the audio option will be available in the menu button itself.

Pls check with another set of powered speakers and not headphones.

Also check for the drivers and any driver updates for your sound card.

Hope this helps fix your problem.
