If this monitor works when connected to other laptops, the problem is likely to be your laptop, not the monitor. I would suspect that there are bad comnections at the video connector of the laptop.

My acer monitor p191w will turn on acer logo comes on goes black then a screen comes out saying no signal then turns of light turns yellow ...tried restarting monitor nothing


Connect the monitor to a different computer, to see if the monitor works at all.

Connect a different monitor to your computer, to see if your computer really is "sending" a video-signal through the "data" cable. If not, then either the data-cable or the video-card inside the computer is faulty.

Acer AL1912 19" LCD Monitor goes black after power up


With the screen connected to the pc (which is running and putting out a signal) hold a bright light to the front of the lcd - a led flashlight works well. Do you see an image? If so then circuitry driving the inverter backlights may be at fault. I had this happen with a Dell Flat Screen, and found one of a pair of transistors which drives the backlight had developed a short.

Screen not working on ACER 5315 laptop


First be sure you dont have an imput problem on your laptop while you are testing it. The input buton (swtich view) should be acessible via the Fn button and the F3-F8 on the keyboard (depends on your model) but it could looks like this : |[]| it really depends on the brands/models. It seems you experience some driver issues, but the driver should work for both devices... It's possible that your laptop screen or inverter are defective. But before saying so, be sure to try to switch views while you got the external monitor plugged in and see what happens. If only your external monitor works fine, you may have to replace some hardware in your laptop. I would personally contact the Acer technical support before spending any money on it though. Just in case... I hope it still in warranty cause it may be a bit expensive otherwise :(

Both screens wont work


No mention of how much ram installed ???

Are you using ACER GRIDVISTA
This program handles the multi screen out put

or

Standard Screen Properties,,,,,,,

Try this

DESKTOP>Right click properties
DISPLAY PROPERTIES>Settings

With both screens connected.
There should be two windows displayed ,
a highlighted white one and a grey one

Click IDENTIFY.

ONE SCREEN-
Should display a number 1 on the screen it has attached.
TWO SCREEN
Should display a number 2 on the external screen.

Once you get IDENTIFY to work then set resolution sizes of both individual screen.Apply and ok to save settings

If using GRIDVISTA then set the setting for the output functions and save theme as a theme BOTH or LAPTOP AND EXTERNAL MONITOR and its accessible from the desktop right click.

Good luck I have a couple of these I use for my Media Centre wirelessly networked thru the house.Great machines.

Monitor is connected to laptop jack and displays "no signal"


You have to activate the video out of the laptop.
Two ways to do this depending on how you want to use the monitor.
To use the monitor by itself laptops have shortcut keys.
Usually they involve using the Fn key and one of the F keys (Usually F3-F4-F5) KEy will either show two screens or say CRT-LCD
Pushing both keys at once will switch you to both screens, pushed again will just run the monito, Pushed again will return you to the laptop screen.

If you want to use the monitor as an extension of the monitor to be able to drag windos over to it then go to your display properties from the control panel and activate the monitor in the settings box. You'll have to click the monitor first then activate it as a extension and adjust the resolution here.
