Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Acer lcd monitor ''no signal''

Well my computer was originally windows vista, but after it crashed once and i sent it for repair, it came back with this ''windows vista not genuine'' problem. I always clicked ''activate later'' for the past few weeks and it was fine. But today when I tried to switch the computer on, my Acer monitor showed the acer logo followed by a ''no signal'' message and finally a blank screen. The CPU began to make the same noises as it usually did when it starts up (i.e. fan turns on & makes a humming noise).

so i'm wondering, is it just my monitor that's not working, or has Windows prevented my computer from starting up because the version is not genuine? Is there any way to fix it?

Thanks in advance! :)

    oh and the keyboard isn't lighted up as well (i.e. no power)so could it be the CPU which is the problem?

No signal from computer after Windows XP loading screen comes up: when I turn the computer on, there's video signal to the monitor, but once it gets to Windows loading, it stops and goes black.


Does it do the same when you bootup in safe mode (hit f8 key while booting up)? if it is OK in safe mode, then it is software problem, not hardware.
Post back what you find.

Input not Supported


The signal being sent is outside of the rated limits of the monitor (vertical or horizontal synch rates). Boot up in safe mode (by hitting F8 during the initial startup of the computer, before the windows logo screen comes up). Select Safe Mode. If you get a display in this mode, then you know your graphics card is sending a signal outside of the monitors limits, if not, then the monitor itself is probably bad. NOTE: The following steps are for Windows XP only... if you have a different OS, please reply and I'll research the steps for you.

If it is your graphics card, while in safe mode, right click on My Computer and choose Properties. Click on the Hardware tab. Click on Device Manager and double click the Display Adapter entry. Right click on your graphics card and click uninstall. This will force the computer to reinstall the graphics drivers at bootup and, hopefully, reset the adapters output mode. Reboot the system and once in, set your display settings to the best for your monitor (Windows XP should pick the best setting if the monitor is plug and play).

No driver appearing in Vista


Sorry this is late but:

Unplug the monitor from the PC and then boot.
after you hear the windows starting sound wait for it to load everything up (say 1 min) and plug in the monitor

Windows then plays the "i have found an unknown device" sound and begins to search for drivers

Wait 5 min for it to do this and then shut down the computer with the power button.
Re boot

Monitor should work.

Note: you must be connected to the net for this to work.

Monitor repeatedly flashes Acer logo and computer display in cycles


We had the same problem with the 17" we bought in Aug. Sent it back for repair. Acer sent it back without fixing the problem. Started doing it again in Nov. This time I called a supervisor and they sent me a new monitor. Well yesterday it started doing the same thing. You can fix it temp buy unplugging it and holding down the on-off switch for 30 seconds. Please let me know if you have a better fix.
