    Acer AL1512 monitor turns on, shows normal screen briefly then goes black with a very faint image within the black. I, too, just moved into a new house, disassembled and reassembled my computer with this new problem. Would appreciate any solutions.

    Has anybody been able to solve this problem or figure out why it does this? I believe it has something to do with the power adapter or the plug on the monitor itself.

You'll have to describe the problem in a bit more detail, because it could be a couple different things based on when it goes dark and what "dark" means.

I'm going to guess that the monitor is turning itself off after that second, but you might be describing that it doesn't say it's off, but there is no image (or maybe a really faint image that you can see in the bright light). Try checking it in the bright light after it goes dark. Also, does it seem different if you bang on, shake, or turn it upside down. Don't do this if you haven't already as it will more likely damage it than fix it, but if you have already banged on it, does it change?

I'm working on the same model with a similar problem (not sure it's the same) and will be ripping into it soon and will post the results.

Tmy monitor shows the images only for 20 seconds, then it turns black.

Hi hope your monitor issue has resolved. I would suspect the problem is a hardware issue then a software setting. Since the monitor is over three and half years old, if your monitor is a LCD with CCFL back light and had been used almost every day, there may be 3 possible hardware issues. First is the internal power supply, that can go wrong due to heating problem within the monitor, this problem usually cause the monitor to display poor quality picture and may show interference lines on screen prior failure. Secondly, it may be the inverter that drives the back light, which may fail due to the safety circuit kicks in, because it involves with high voltages. Thirdly it may be the backlight itself, which is like most compact CCFL energy saving lamps that flickers or turn itself off when it reaches the end of its service life. This problem usually caused the monitor to show redness or yellowness images prior failure.

All of these can be resolved by qualified electronic repairers, all the best.

Gateway FPD 1730 (mfg June 2004) On start-up, monitor flashes bios screen for less than half a second, then flashes the Windows XP logo for less than half a second and then stays black, no image. No...

All support is finished for XP years ago. The system is 13 years old and well past it expected life. Average is 8 to 10 years on a shop bought unit like Gateway, 12 years on a custom build.

I am thinking you probably have a dry joint on the board behind the switch as holding the switch makes the monitor work.

My advice though is a new computer running Windows 10, technology moves on in hardware and software.

Display starts out OK, but after a few minutes it begins to flicker in the upper corners, and the turns on and off a few times before staying black?! Everything else seems to function OK.... BIOS issue???...

please check the monitor or LCD that you have. because the computer will not flicker if there is a problem on the display. isolate it. use other monitor or LCD then check if it flickers again.

Monitor Goes black, or flickers on and off

The high pitch sound is coming from the inverter. It is faulty and needs to be repaired or replaced. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp, this lamp gives the backlight to the LCD so you can see the LCD images.

LG Monitor L196WTQ-BF ..weird image stuck on desktop??

The "image" you are talking about: Is it there when the monitor is off? If so, you are correct--it's broken and must be replaced.
Is it on the desktop when you start the computer and does it stay there no matter what program you are running. If the answer is "yes" then I'm afraid the answer is the same.

Dark screen with dull image in background

You may need to check your desktop image for your monitor and change it to something lighter
The external monitor usually uses your computer's default and not ncessarily the one from your laptop monitor

Without taking it apart myself, it could be some wiring from the laptop to the screen

Good morning, Kevin!
Sounds like an LCD problem. You can verify this by hooking up an external monitor. The external monitor will probably show a good display.
After verification of the problem,you may want to try to replug the LCD cable at both ends, just to see if that corrects the situation.
If that resolves things, all is well and good. If not, you may need a replacement LCD.
If the external monitor shows the same display, you may have a motherboard problem.
Hope this information is of some help.
