Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I just bought a Acer 19' monitor and I'll trying to connect it to my Dell PC. It came with to cables (blue and white). The blue goesinto the back of the PC Tower but the white one fits nowhere. When the monitor is turned on it appears to work - the "acer" name comes up and then the words "no signal". As soon as no signal comes on the sceen it goes to black and the light turns orange.

They all come with two cables. blue being vga, white being dvi cable. you only need to plug the blue into both ends (computer and into the monitor) and turn on. If it is still not working how many video cards are there on the computer? Do you have it plugged into the right spot and is it tight on both ends?

Can i hook my 47inch tv to the monitor


You can't hook you TV to the monitor itself, rather the computer.
If your PC has a wide white connector (DVI) that is supplying signal to the monitor, you could use a DVI to HDMI adapter cable to connect your PC to your TV. This is also possible if your PC uses a small blue connector with 15 pin holes (VGA) by using a VGA cable to connect your PC to your TV.

I bought a used samsung 931b 19 inch monitor and it did not come with the cables to hook up to PC what cables do i need?


you need either a dvi-d or a dsub cord depending on whether your computer has analogue or digital outputs. if you look on the back of your computer, dsub is blue, dvi is white. this monitor has inputs for both. the cords are available at you local bestbuy, radio shack, or office depot.

The 3 colors wires that hook into my pc are yellow, red & blue, but the colors on the pc are: pink, white and blue is there a color match up?


I suspect you've got the audio and video cables mixed up.

Video inputs on monitor will be yellow for video and red/blue for audio. PC end of cable will be round and connect to your video card. Or .. you should have a cable with a 15 pin mini D on both ends or a DVB cable.

The pink, white and blue connectors on your pc are audio connections for speakers/headphones.

Monitr compatibility


That will plug right in. Your existing monitor has a VGA connection, which matches what you have on this monitor (where it plugs in on the back of the computer you will find a blue connector). Just put this one in it's place.

The industry is moving to DVI, which is a long white connector, but monitors are still coming with the VGA connection anyway. This monitor is DVI capable which means it will be great for your next computer, but you will need to buy the DVI cable separately (not today, but when you eventually get a new computer).

You'll need to troubleshoot a little. SOmething may be broken, but you'll need to find out what. 1: Try the monitor on another computer, see wether it will work on that one. If it doesn't, the monitor's broken and you're probably going to need a new one. 2: If the monitor does work, put it back, but now use another cable to connect it to the PC. If that fixes it, your cable was broken. 3: If not, you could try to switch the graphics card in the PC with another one. Do not attempt that, however, unless you know what you're doing. If you don't, get someone you know to do it for you, or take it to a computer shop. If the PC will boot with another graphics card, the old one is broken. 4: If not, it may be your motherboard that's broken. Repeat step 3 with it. These steps should fix your problem. If not, please post back here. Regards, Yannick.

Will the E193FP work with my computer?


Hi,
I would suggest , check the monitor connections again. Dell flat panels are plug and play and donnot require additional drivers.
Make sure , you have not connected , both the analog (vga cable with a blue connector) and the digital (dvi cable with a white connector) to the back of your computer.
Refer to the the link below , to troubleshoot the monitor

If your monitor have inbuilt speaker, then you need not to plug it, because the monitor cable will work for that. I have ViewSonic 19" with inbuilt speaker and its working without any extra cable or connection.

ACER LCD monitor no image, appears white color only


Quickly go to the Acer website and check FAQ's and while there also find out how to get an RMA to return it. My guess is you have a bad monitor. At $200 roughly for a replacement I would hustle. I am assuming you got nothing but a white screen but did get video on your TV.

See the link below. White cable is better than blue. Don't connect both!
