The monitor works fine up to the log on screen. It will show the desk top for a few seconds, then it goes to a yellow light.

    Thank you, thank you!!

    I do believe it is a matter of settings. I logged in on my daughter's account, & it works great. J. logged in on his, & it wouldn't work. We are both have admin. privilages & she doesn't. I now have to figure out what settings to fix.

    I truly appreciate you're answer. It really gave me a lift when I had a direction to explore.

    Thanks again,

    Thank you for your answer. It was truly nice of you.

    The monitor CD only came with a Vista driver & acrobat setup, video is integrated, so I'm not sure what driver to remove. I may prowl around a bit & see if I can locate one.

    I'll let you know if it works.

If it doesn't responds do any commands...I mean try to right click on the desktop to see if it let you select properties,,,or so ....if does, it just a case of settings ..if it does not ..and dont even have the task bar ..it means tha either the driver or some files are corrupted and cause it works fine until log-on ..it a matter of windows...and it has to be reinstalled....
if it responds to commands...contact me to try to fix it back together ...if not ...reboot from the cd ...and reinstall the operation system ...
it does not have anything wrong with the hardware cause if it was it didnt go as far as the log on ...
Good luck !

Hi Larry,

I see that you are having issues with you LCD monitor intermittently showing Video for a few seconds then just dies to a black screen and will show windows in the desktop then go back to a black screen again on the issue ...

I believe that what you are experiencing on the issue is a screen refresh rate setting in windows.

we will need to check you video settings on the system for the issue.

Before we go and change some settings on your system we will need to boot into safe mode first.

1. From Shut down as soon as you turn your system on keep on tapping the F8 key on-top of your keyboard, this will give you the Windows Advance Options Menu.

2. On the List Select Safemode once highlighted press enter once, a bunch o things will show up on the screen this means that windows is loading in Safemode and windows will be loaded but all drivers will not so may encounter a screen that has big Icons and letters on it which is normal.

3. Log-in you windows profile if you have a password setup, once logged in do the following instructions below.

Changing the Screen Refresh rate:

1. Right Click on your Desktop/wallpaper to get the pop up options menu, click on personalize.

2. In the personalize window click on display lower left side of the window

3. Then Upper Left side of the new window click on Change Display setting then on the next page lower right side you will see Advance settings click on it.

4. you will get a small window click on the monitor TAB you will see there a drop down for the Screen Refresh rate click on the drop down and select 59 Hrtz, then Click on Apply then OK to save the settings work on your monitor.

The back light is the whole of the screen, the screen is illuminated by a CCFL lamp (fluro tube) on the bottom of the screen. A inverter supplies high voltage to this CCFL lamp.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :-

Monitor L17AMTN flashes WinXP desktop, then blanks.


dmellman, Before you open it up, try this! With fully booted pc and WIN DESKTOP screen up, reconnect the L17AMTN . Have a bright flashlight handy so that when the lcd screen flashes on for 1 second and then goes dark, you will want to check to see if the desktop remains on the screen even though you think it went away. Shine the light 1-2 inches from screen at different angles. Has the desk top completely disappeared or is it still being displayed? Do you know about Cold-Cathode-Fluorescent tubes and their Inverter type power supply? I assume that this unit also has a "lay on floor black box switch-mode-power-supply" that is supposed to supply raw 12v-14v dc to the monitor? This symptom is typical of lcd monitor power supply failure, and or inverter board failure. Not to mention the fact that the CCFT's could be a bit tired from use. YOUTUBE has some videos on taking apart lcd monitors. also do search on web for "bad caps on lcd boards" or "bad caps in lcd monitors". I should think that this Tatung might suffer from swollen cap-itis. get back to me with results of your investigation. Im louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@aol.com just nrth of Windy City

Acer AL1914 black screen, green light


it sounds like a deleted driver? try getting the driver for the monitor, did you loose the Operating system at some point, if so try a system restore to a date when the computer was working properlly prior to the malfunction. It sounds like it restored you to a time before the driver for that monitor was installed.

RE:monitor goes black


Monitor going black after a few seconds can be causd by a faulty power supply or inverter. Some monitors have both as one unit.
Sometimes it is basic failed capacitors, After that then I would look at transistors.
The average monitor from 17 to 20 and sometimes the 22s have usually 4 bulbs in them. One bad bulb will also cause the inverter to not fire up.
Bad bulbs usually show pinkish tint, or flickering or are dark at center top or bottom of the display.
