Horizontal line appears on my PC Acer screen and

There are two possibilities: That the monitor is bad, or that the video board is bad.
The easiest way to test is to install a different monitor and see if it does the same.
If it does the same, then it is the video board. If not, it is the monitor.

There are two types of lines.

Lines caused by a bad LCD screen and lines caused by poor sync.

A bad LCD will cause perfectly straight vertical and horizontal lines that don't move at all. This is because the row and column addressing ICs have gone bad, so you will end up with rows or columns of bad pixels.

Poor sync looks more like what you are describing. The picture will flip vertically and horizontally.

Poor or missing sync can be caused by a bad video cable, or a bad IC on the main board.

If the monitor has a removable video cable, borrow another one from a friend to test if the monitor is working. If it works, head to your local computer store and buy a new cable.
If the monitor still doesn't work with a different cable, you may have a bad main board. The only way to repair the monitor will be to replace the board.

If you open the monitor, be sure to check for bad capacitors. They can cause all sorts of strange faults. Look elsewhere on this site for how-tos on inspecting capacitors.

If your video cable is not removable, there's not much you can do. You will need a way to test that each pin on the cable connector on the main board conducts to a corresponding pin on the other end of the cable. You can do this if you have a multimeter, or a continuity tester.

Horizontal black line in monitor display

Yes, it can ve repaired. The problem is if it will be cost effective. I would hook up another monitor just to rule out the video card. It probably is not the video card...but be safe.

LCD monitors are very easy to repair...and I would suspect the LCD itself...

Let me know if you need a source to purchase the will price it yourself and determine if it would be cost effective.

If you have a CRT monitor...junk it...definetly too costly to repair abd parts are scarce.

Good luck to you my friend.

Monitor goes black

Sorry to have to tell you this, but this is common in LCD monitors. The reason that it is going black when it boots is for one of two reasons. You either have a bad power supply that powers your LCD or your LCD's backlight is blown. These can be repaired or you can purchase a new one. But if it goes black 9 times out of 10 is because the backlight is bad. These can be repaired!
