Ha ha, no it was something very simple. My technician rang the company as it was under warranty and they had never heard of it but worked it out and just pressed a few buttons on the monitor and it was gone!! Thanks, anyway for the laugh.

Your monitor has disco fever and will have to be shot in a midnight ritual in Palm Springs. Or, you will have to replace a diac circuit linking the display, power control, and power supply grounds (or possibly an overvolt protector of some sort in the power supply.) I don't know why for this kind of error the designer couldn't just put a message on the OSD in some random human language.

The amber light verifies your monitor is connected to primary power. The internal power supply is dead, otherwise the amber light would change color when the switch was operated.

Acer laptop has developed a fully dark screen

I am assuming that you have tried switching from external monitor output and local monitor. There should be a hot key on the keyboard to switch it. Also, try looking to make sure the driver for the display is up to date. I f it was update recently try rolling the driver back. If you need help with doing any of this post a comment. Hope this has helped some.

Monitor works during boot-up but not in Windows

Did you install the ATI catalyst software?  You will have to check a box that says active monitor on your graphics console for the appropriate monitors.
