Hello, There could be two possibilities. Drivers for Video card are not installed, bad. or a faulty monitor (could be loose inside the computer) or graphics card. Another reason is because the cord that goes to the computer for whatever reason is to close to a power cord or power bar. Have you tried moving it any?
After eliminating all of these things the only thing left is the monitor itself and within the monitor the only component typically capable of producing rolling lines as you describe is the power supply.
I suspect it's the refresh rate in the monitors settings. Try making the refresh rate lower.

How can remove horizental line

If you have horizontal lines on the monitor screen it might be an issue with the Monitor itself. To confirm this you can simply disconnect the monitor from the Computer and check if you still get those horizontal lines.

If you still see those lines then probably you might needs to call the manufacturer and check the warranty status. If it is still under warranty you can get a replacement for it.

Also you can try to press the MENU button on the monitor and then select the factory reset option and check if it gets resolved.

Hope you find this information helpful.

Thank you for choosing Fixya

Monitor worked last night and then this morning doesnt,green power light is on,but nothing on screen,just stays black


This model has a know issue with the power supply for the back lights. Check our wen site at: look on the monitor repair page and then click the link for the Westinghouse L1975NW, this is the same internal components as the Acer AL1916W monitor. The repair guide will show you what needs to be replaced to get back showing the screen again. If you can solder then you should be able to do the repair yourself. If you don't want to do the repair we do offer a repair service for $30 plus shipping. If you have any questions just contact us through the web site.

I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.

Check your power cables properly and make sure it is attached. Check your power button, maybe you have pressed the wrong one.

My AL1916W monitor will accept the Windows XP Pro output for a while but then presents a message which travels round the screen "Input not supported" and I can do nothing. It works OK with another CPU -...

It is display screen resolution issue.
When you power up the computer press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode then go to control panel ->display->settings
then change screen resolution to 1024*768 then restart then check.
