    I have opened up my AL1916 monitor to check the capacitors as was previously suggested. I don't see any of them that look abnormal. Is there anything else I can check? I don't have any special equipment here, but I do have a meter, if that is any help.

Capacitor has shorted in the main board. Try to look for any buldging capacitor and change it. It will be ok then.

My ACER AL1916 blinks several times before picture is displayed when the monitor is turned-on for the first time in the early morning and stays stable all day. I connected it using VGA cable. Any...

Usually this happens when the monitor is trying to translate the signal given off by the video card.

Nothing to worry about, simply a process that the system needs to go through.

Check the cables and the computer connection VGA outlet.
If doesn't work and your monitor is under warranty ACER will repair your monitor for free.
If not, the better option is get a new one instead of repair due the high cost.

Green Flash power only on one computer

It sounds like the monitor functions properly and your computer functions properly, but the combination causes a problem. Try making sure the screen resolution on your main computer is set to an acceptable resolution for your monitor - AL1916. Try setting it low to 800x600 and move up from there until it doesn't work anymore. You can change the screen resolution from the Display Settings (right click on the desktop and select Display Settings) window.

You're going to have to provide more info than that.

What were you doing when it happened? What are you typically doing when it happens? Have you checked your cables? Power connection?

As it stands, your inquiry will not receive much of a useful solution for you unless you let us know these things.

And don't rate me poorly for letting you know this. I'm here to help you. You have to HELP US help you.

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.
