Question about Acer AL1716 17" LCD Monitor

Acer AL1716 LCD monitor -- black screen

Well, not *entirely* black -- it's fine all through booting, but after having to hard-reset (holding down the power button) when a game I was playing decided not to respond or let me exit any other way, the screen now turns completely black when it gets to the Windows login page.  I can see the mouse.  I can log in fine, and launch things (assuming I remember where the icon is), so I assume the PC's OK.  I just can't see anything.

I've tried rebooting, both hard and soft.  I've reseated the monitor cable.  I've messed with the brightness and contrast settings (hiked them both up to 100), which made no difference whatsoever.  I even switched the thing off mid-boot just to try launching in last-known-good config.  No dice.

It's behaved perfectly, bizarre 'resolution not supported' one-time thing aside, for the week I've had it, so this is something of a downer.

Any and all help appreiciated.

    I've been working on this more in the interim and it seems to be a fault with my display drivers -- hopefully this will be fixed on reinstalling them.

Acer al1716 dont work

When the LCD monitor display flickers and or has a black screen then the fault is usually a faulty inverter or the CCFL lamp. When you look at the screen at a sharp angle and you see a dim image then it is a backlight problem and it is caused by a faulty inverter or a CCFL lamp.

Acer 1716 seems to start but will not pick up signal from OS

There probably is an error in the hard drive, since its not booting up. I would replace the hard drive, or take it to your local computer repair shop. I hope this helps!

1. Unplug the AC power cord to make sure the power is off.
turn the monitor upside down, you need 2 people for this.
2. Pull the 4 hooks on bottom side of the base and hold.
3. Separate the monitor and base.

Acer AL1716 Power problem?

i have experienced the same problem (power cycles on and off and on and off... nothing but Acer logo and black screen) on 2 Acer model 1706 A version 1706 Ab monitors both built in July 2006. Before the customer reported the 2nd monitor with the same problem, i sent the 1st one into Acer for warranty service (after testing in on 4 machines w/4 different video cards). They shipped it back with a paper saying the monitor was repaired. I returned the monitor to the customer and it exhibited the same symptoms (aka, not repaired). Could there have been a bad batch in July 2006? When I plug a new Acer AL1716 monitor into the same computers, I have no problems at all.
