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.
Delete your graphics driver and re Install it if you are using vista then its the Auto Adjust setting on the monitor turn it off re boot holding down delete key then check cmos and bios setting to see if your monitor is installed or is it a generic PNP Monitor as you need a vista supportive driver if its vista your using

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.

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.
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.
i Have the same problem, this screen is used on the spare computer we have in a loft conversion and the room does get rather cold, Warming the screen up with a fan heater for a couple of minutes gets rid of the problem. When the fault occurs the buttons on the front to adjust the picture quality don't work they just turn off the monitor.
