Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Danny_gormle, Hi there. Your lcd display "switch-mode-power-supply" is mostlikely detecting a FAULT with itself or the "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" ballast circuit (called the INVERTER) and is going into what is known as SHUTDOWN mode to try and save itself from having a catastrophic nonrecoverable failure and or FIRE and SMOKE. Get back to me after you visit YOUTUBE and search for video clips of LCD monitor Disassembly and or LCD repair! I'm sure you will find out the most common causes of your type of failure symptom. Your symptom will surely fit into the top 2 at least. After doing the YOUTUBE thing, check with Acer to see if they have a cash+old monitor swapout programme where they send you a REFURBISHED unit in return. It's that or have it refurbished locally or do repair yourself. With the words 'straight away' I suspect your from England, Canada, or The Land Down Under? I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ aol.com north of Chicago. Hope this helps you out a bit. please rate this response on fixya. Bye for now.
