    on my brand new acer monitor i turn it on and it shows the blue acer logo on a black screen. i am using an hp system and am using the acer screen to upgrade from a very old, very heavy sampo monitor.

    Monitor just turns off then back on for no apparent reason. Sometimes the power doesn't come back on but moving the mouse will bring it back on line.

    The buttons for adjustments to the monitor just turn off the screen when you press them. The only way to get the screen back on is to press them again so no adjustments to the screen can be made.

    This is also the case when the monitor is disconnected from the computer.

    If you do not have an Acer pc then you will not have the E-recovery program. However you siad that you see Acer - that means the monitor is an Acer monitor and the pc is another brand. The issue you are having are related to the display adpater. When starting the computer - tap the F8 key until you get the SAFE MODE menu then select SAFE MODE - once logged in go to My Computer (XP) or Computer (Vista) right click my computer - properties then hardware - device manager - click the plus sign next to Display Adapter - right click each item under Display Adapter and choose Uninstall then click OK for each item - reboot and allow windows to redetect the display adapter drivers - if that does not resolve - try reinstalling Windows if you have the cd or contact your pc manufacturer and ask how to perform full ecovery to install correct drivers - problem may be with the power settings or corrupt Windows installation -

Hi Jim,

this seems like a no boot / no video kind off issue and mostly is coz of corruptions in softwares or drivers, try booting the computer in safe mode. if it does, then take a data backup. i would not recommend experimenting in this issue as it can crash the computer.
hence call 1-877-805-1027 for expert help.

Acer is going straight to a black screen after the acer logo in just shows a tiny blinking line. It goes no farther. I need help fast

Apparently your Acer cannot find the operating system. As soon as the Acer logo comes up, there should appear in one of the bottom corners "F" & a number should appear. Immediately start pressing that F number (top row of keyboard). This should take you to a boot screen. Scroll down to boot sequence. Hit enter. Make sure boot-up sequence is CD or floppy drive first, second should be HDD, then escape. Restart computer. Should then boot off CD drive. I am assuming you have an operating system (XP, windows, etc.). Let me know if this doesn't work.

I have an acer aspire 3000 series and when I turn it on the acer logo shows up on the screen, but after that the screen just goes black.


If this problem is a recent one and the notebook was working fine

You could try to start up in safe mode then do a system restore back to when you reckon it was ok

Monitor repeatedly flashes Acer logo and computer display in cycles

We had the same problem with the 17" we bought in Aug. Sent it back for repair. Acer sent it back without fixing the problem. Started doing it again in Nov. This time I called a supervisor and they sent me a new monitor. Well yesterday it started doing the same thing. You can fix it temp buy unplugging it and holding down the on-off switch for 30 seconds. Please let me know if you have a better fix.

Acer AL1716 monitor flickers

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.
