Question about Acer AL2216W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Horizontal banding that looks like Interference

I have a Acer AL2216W. Just plugged it in for first time. Looks great except in dark areas i can see that there is a shimmering horizontal banding that looks like interference or like my Dell Inspiron Laptop is too much of a dinosaur to keep up with the insane power.
Well anyhow, how do I correct this annoyance. And will this same problem turn up when I get my new MAC laptop and use my Acer Monitor with that?

Re: Horizontal banding that looks like Interference

I would take this in for a service check could be issues that need resolving from a service standpoint not a simple driver or resolution fix

Acer AL2216W DVI not working after connecting to a laptop

I have had an issue on 3 separate occasions where 3 separate Acer monitors would give me a no signal error after being plugged into a laptop. I have found that taking them apart, and then unplugging the main power line from the power supply to the mainboard seems to correct this issue. It may be some kind of power spike that causes this. I am not really sure though. just thought I would post something about it since I couldn't find any posts about the same issue but it has happened to me 3 times. Figured someone out there might find this helpful.

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.

Native resolution suddenly scrolls.

The native resolution for the Acer AL2216W is 1600X1200. It is acting correctly for the resolution you have set it to.

Monitor lcd acer al2016w 20" letters and image are fuzzy,,why?

I also have an Asrock motherboard (M266A) and have the AL2216W. The image and text is also fuzzy. I did improve it a by by unplugging/replugging all of the connectors on the back of the computer. I believe my mouse had a somewhat loose connection and this was causing interference. I can actually create interference on screen by moving my mouse up and down.
These Acer monitors seem to be very sensitive. I also tried this monitor on a old Desktop with Win98 and another new laptop with XP and it looks good on those computers, but not on my Asrock based system.
