There is no reason that a monitor only 6 months old should cause problems like this. Either Acer should fix your monitor or you have a video card problem. Bringing your monitor to a computer tech place may be a good start. They should be able to hook it up and see if it does the same thing on their computer and FOR FREE. If the problem clears up on their computer, your video card or driver is defective.

Red blue and green patterning on the monitor


You can try switching out the VGA cable (the one with the blue connectors on each end). If this does not work, try a factory reset on your monitor.

What does it mean by dead cells?


I assume this is related to your LCD monitor.
I think you mean dead pixels. The LCD monitor has tiny pixel elements, one for each red, blue, green color and each one of these colored pixels are turnes on by a transistor. When a transistor fails then the colored pixel it controls does not light up. This is a dead pixel and it shows up as a tiny black dot.
If the screen displays a blue screen, a dead blue pixel will appear as a tiny black dot in the blue screen.
You normally would not notice a few dead pixels unless they are grouped together.

Sounds like a problem with the video board of the monitor. I would contact Acer, since it less than 3 yrs old, tell them the problem that you are having get an RMA number and they will fix it for free. You only have to pay for shipping it back. Hope this helps.

My monitor has gone from a beautiful, sharp screen to one that is faded and blurry. It is only about 6 months old. Is there an adjustment that can be made?


Hello Katherine ann, hi, the faded and blurry picture is usually caused by poor LCD panel connections, due to loose contacts and screws. This is usually poor ventilation, or factory defects. Since you mention its only 6 months old, it is still cover for warranty, call your dealer for service.

Magenta vertical stripe sets plus grid dots problem


Try using a diffrent computer on this and see if its not the video card doing it or if not its the controller board inside that connect to the video card that would need to be replaced at this time, if there are no dead or stuck pixels it might be worth replacing rather then buying a new one.
