My monitor is 7 or 8 years old. No problem till two weeks ago when the screen began to act erratically. The picture is now warped. The edges are rounded and i'm missing the Start button at left and my clock at right. I tried the controls on the monitor, but that doesn't help. One correction creates another problem. And the i key does nothing whatsoever.

Re: acer 77e monitor
Hit there, if the edges are rounded and some troubles within. you may have a deflection yoke problem, it maybe a system control problem of a monitor, or a power supply problem, try to check some parts, identify if by section. ty

In this case what I would recommend you is to connect any external monitor to the system to check if you have the same issue with the external monitor as well or not.
If yes, then it might be the issue with the video card so, you can try updating the video drivers for the system.
If no, it means that the original monitor has some issues with itself..
Also what I would recommend is try to lessen the screen resolution instead of 1920 x 1200 to lower resolution and restart the system and check if it makes any difference.. Also update the video drivers for the system.
I have 2 Acer AL2416W monitors that i have been using for 2 years. There has been a handful of times i would turn my computer on in the morning and the screen would be black and Acer would lightly flash on the monitor 1 time. Typically a restart would take care of the problem. Last week the monitor blacked out and i can't get it to work. Any suggestions?? I switched ports on the computer to verify it wasn't the video card and tried new DVI cables to verify it wasn't those? Is this fixable??
I think there is a problem in Monitor's Power Supply unit which integrated in the base board of Monitor. If u expertise with the service then carry on. else Pl contact a Local Service professional to solve the problem
It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts, replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.
I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

This is an indication your monitor is on the way to failure: You can do a "degauss' which is usually powering the monitor off and then pushing the degauss button in and holding it while powering the monitor back on.
Well, I have 2 of these monitors and one began acting in a similar fashion right before the cable went bad. I acquired a replacement from another person with a broken monitor but I believe this site sells them too (but they aren't cheap).
This is possibly an inverter. When the monitor goes out, examine the LCD to see if you can see a faint image of the video being displayed. IF so, replace inverter. If not, possibly a bad LCD or video circuitry.
