Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Green backgroud instead of black

We purchased this 1916w a week ago and it worked fine until now. when we started windows xp and we found the background turned green (should be black). then i open excel and found the color had changed (light green). i tried to run reset couble of times, and noticed that the setting tried to bring back the original look but only stayed a couple of seconds and then returned to green. i tried to find the cause by hooking this monitor to my other computer and the problem was still there. i don't know what cause this.

Re: green backgroud instead of black

Sounds like your monitor cable is either bad or has a bent or missing pin on the connector.

You have PC problem nto monitor problem since you can see the mouse.
Try booting in safe mode (hit F8) while booting up then go to system restore and set it back to the date you remember before the problem started.

victorash02, Is screen black n blank, or just black? Do flashlight test! Yes it could be both! Most likely problem with unit's internal "switch-mode-power-supply"/"CCFL inverter supply". You or technician will need to investigate for probable cause of black screen of death. Need a little history of unit! Did it work just fine 2 weeks ago? How many "ON" hours of use on the unit? When was it made? Did you PROVE that PC not cause and works ok? Get back here with more info so we can help.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.

I start my computer and turn it on, and everything looks fine for about 1/4 of a second and then it goes black while leaving the power light green. I can only see the screen again after turning it off and on, but that's only for another 1/4 second. What's up?
I got my rosewill flatscreen as a hand me down from my father. I've had it for several years now. Was working fine until a month ago. When I turn the computer on the screen goes black after 1/4 of a saecond. I have to turn it off and on anywhere from 10 to 20 times before it stays on. I have checked all plugs to the computer and outlets. I have absolutely no idea whats causing this.
