Question about Acer AL1711 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor flashes display 2-3 times then goes blank on initial boot

When the monitor first comes on it displays xp logo then goes blank then shows welcome screen then either shows desktop and goes blank or just goes blank. green light stays on. To get it to work properly requires rebooting 2 to 3 times as well as sometimes having to turn it off and on several times over a 5 to 15 minute period. once it seems to have warmed up it works fine and Ican turn the system off and on with no problem as long as the off period does not exceed 15 to30 minutes.

When I switch on my computer, Windows XP start loading and then my Samsung Samtron 45Bn monitor's screen goes blank and the green light keeps flashing every 0.5 secs.

It sounds like your video is set to the wrong resolution. Try booting into safe mode by pressing F12 at the start of the boot process. If you get into windows that way, then adjust the display to something you monitor can display like 1024x728@32bits. The monitor can only display a certain amount of pixels and if you set the video card to high you will lose visual. Hope this helps.

Our acer 19in LCD monitor goes blank after initial startup and msg "Input not Supported" appears. Startup msgs are shown but once Windows XP starts, this error appears

Your resolution is set above what the monitor supports.

when computer is first starting up hit f8 to get to boot modes.

choose Enable VGA Mode: This option starts Windows in 640 x 480 mode by using the current video driver (not Vga.sys). This mode is useful if the display is configured for a setting that the monitor cannot display.

When you are booted into windows you can then set your resolution to the highest that the monitor supports which is 1440x900

Let me know if this helps.

The panel initially displays and then goes blank

johnerm, Good going John! At least YOU tried doing a swapout to another KNOWN GOOD pc to prove out that the E153FP is indeed the culprit!!! Now for the hard part. Do you have a bright flashlight? Reconnect E153FP to pc with WIN-desktop as the displayed image. then and only then turn on E153FP and note the time it takes to GO TO BLACK SCREEN. Is it 1, 2, --5,---20 seconds???? Now point at different angels about 1 inch from screen a bright flashlight to an area that "should" have a desktop "icon" showing. LOOK very closely!! If you SEE a very faint image of the desktop the units "switch-mode-power-supply" is in PARTIAL SHUTDOWN mode. (still has +5v or +3.3v to supply vga/lcd interface board) If you SEE NOTHING, then SMPS is in FULL SHUTDOWN mode. Get back to me, 12fixlouie with your SMPS flashlight evaluation and pay a visit to YOUTUBE fyi search and view video clips of "LCD monitor disassembly" and "LCD monitor repair" to see if DIY interests you! Also try run by another tech on fixya nickname "buddymc" fyi. If this was of some help, rate this response on fixya. 12fixlouie aka louie12fix or lmistyrel @

If the power light does not turn color and stay's green on startup, it is not a power problem. It is most likely the inverter. If the unit is in warranty, send it out ASAP. Contact HP customer care by email and have the issue logged in.
If in warranty, they will send you a box by FedX second day and have repaired.
This is a 19" monitor and will not be worth paying for repairs if not in warranty.

LCD Computer monitor

This problem may occur due to wrong driver of display card or wrong display settings.
1- Start you computer in safe mode.
2- Remove display card driver.
3- Restart you computer.
4- Install display card driver (if it does not pick automatically).

Now it should show default settings. I hope it would solve your problem.

LCD monitor goes blank

It appears that the display resolution set in your display properties is out of the range that the LCD can display.

Try this.

Boot to the ENABLE VGA MODE by pressing F8 to get the Windows Boot Menu. If you can get to the desktop, then go to display properties, and see if you can change the resolution to higher settings and maintain video. (If the video blanks out, then it should revert to the previous setting in 15 seconds)

New 19" flat screen monitor only shows analog on the screen

When you on your computer, does any thing appear on the screen, some text display/logo etc.?
If yes then:
  • After making power on your computer start pressing F8 till boot option menu appears.
  • Then select safe mode and if it works, then goto device manager and re-install driver for your display.
If no then:
  • Check out the connection from monitor to computer and try. If still no luck then post comment whats you did and what was the result.

Input not supported

You may have a video resolution selected on your computer that the screen doesn't support.

The reason you see the the initial startup message is because that is loaded from the bios, prior to the settings for the graphic card output being loaded.

Try booting the computer in safe mode and adjusting the display resolution.
