Lenovo notebook connected to Acer LCD - Aspec off and blocky

I have a Lenovo notebook that I have connected to my Acer LCD AL2216W monitor. It used to work fine, but now the image on the Acer is only the left 2/3 of the screen and the resolution si messed up so that I cannot read the screen. Letters appear compressed and blocky.
I have used the notebook with other monitors without a problem and I have used the Acer with other computers - also without a problem.

I would probably try changing the resolution to the default settings and just start over. Try to make sure the output is set to go to notebook + Monitor as well, because that will give you full screen view on both screens instead of looking like you dragged a browser halfway to the other. If you need me to go further in depth please let me know.

I have an Acer Monitor AL2216W and it will come on, the Acer name appears, then no signal and then the green light goes to orange. Is this the power supply or what?


It will go into sleep mode if it does not detect the signal from the PC. Try is with other PC first, also make sure the cable is seated properly.Basic LCD monitor and TV troubleshooting guide:

Acer AL2216W 22" LCD monitor. DVI input apparently


Not Good..
After you've checked that the video cable is connected properly, make sure that all the pins in the video cable plugs are straight and not broken off. Then test on another PC. Make sure your CMOS battery has not gone flat, as some PC's will fail to load basic drivers if CMOS memory is lost. The battery should show no less than 2.5v, if it's marked 3 volts when tested on a multimeter. If you can't test it, just buy a new one at the supermarket or hardware, usually around $4.00.
Next thing to try is your Video Card . If it is an on board one like most are now, there isn't anything you can do but try another card in an expansion slot or fit a new motherboard. At this point, I'm sad to say, you're better taking it to a PC shop where they will have a few things at their disposal to try.

Acer AL2216W 22" LCD monitor. DVI


You may have problem in the logic board, it uses surface monted components no much chance for DIY repair.
Service manual; http://elektrotanya.com/?q=showresult&megnev=Acer&megnev2=AL2216W&kategoria=monitor&kat2=all

The cases these days are hard to open, they use plastic finger hooks types, they go in easy but real hard to remove without damageing them.
Use thin flat blade to crack open at the bottom edge so the scratches will not be so noticeable, and work your way around, look out for cables attached to the front bezel also.

Same problem, acer sucks imo


I think I may have fixed it but I haven't rebooted my computer yet. I uninstalled the latest ATI driver version 9.3 and then installed an older driver version 7.3. Monitor now turns on and off and gets signal every time so far. I'll post back if it the problem comes back after I reboot.
