This may not be a Monitor problem. So if you can try to get to test monitor on another computer. Check carefully the data cable to ensure there are no bent pins. If it turnout to be a monitor problem then at only 6 months -Acer should replace it. If the monitor works - you should have the graphics card on the computer checked out. If you feel you can do this - and you can- basic checks come back as another request.

It is with your system. You might have hibernation enabled and many advanced video cards cannot recover from a bios or control panel timed hibernate. Start by using the Power Options from the control panel. Select "Always On" for everything and select the Hibernate tab to be sure that the Hibernate check box is not selected. Make sure you APPLY the settings. If the problem goes away, you can tweak the settings to get the power savings features you want without losing your system..

double check that all yor connections are tight. Open your PC case (unplug it) and ensure that all your fans are clean. It appears that your problem is due to loose cable connections, but this may be a good time to do some computer spring cleaning.

In order to isolate whether its the monitor or the compurter tower you can do a self test to check if the monitor is fine .Turn the computer off and then disconnect the cable for the monitor from the back panel of the computer tower.It will be a blue connector with screws on it .Undo the screws and then disconnect it then turn the computer on ,if the monitor is fine you should get a message that would say check input signal or you will have some kind of message on the screen that tells you that the data cable to the monitor is not connected.If u dont get any message that simply means that the monitor has gone bad and needs to be replaced...
hope this helps you .....all the best

Hi. If you have a video card, try removing and reseating it then see if the lines come back...
It if does, then there's a problem with it and needs either replacement or repair...

It sounds like you have dying power supply due to bad caps just like the rest of failed ACER and all other brands as shown in my albums.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.
