    gm_froehlich, If possible, swap-in a KNOWN GOOD MONITOR to prove that the PC is performing perfectly. If pc is ok, then it could be that the AL1715 need work on its "switch-mode-power-supply" !! Or if you are one to always need to push the monitor control-setup buttons all the time, it's poss you may have worn one out or is permanently stuck-on! But anyway, whenever strange things start to occur on the LCD panel, I always suspect the power supply as the cause and look at it first. Will the acer do same thing after unplugging and plugging back into the power outlet? let us know if that corrects the problem. Will it do same stuff if you disconnect it from the pc? 12fixlouie

You have a problem with the press bottoms or with the circuit board so to know here exactlly the problem is first check if any bottom is pressed or hang or somthing like that if not you have to change the press bottoms and then check the board

How did the auto configuration came about? Try pressing the buttons before powering up. Maybe some of it are stuck.

Get in to bios acer aspire AST180-ED400A


First shut your computer off. Wait a few seconds (to allow the hard drive to stop spinning) and start the computer again.
Start repeatedly pressing F2 while the Acer logo is displaying. Press it once, wait a second, press, it again, wait another second, and repeat this while the Acer logo is displaying until you see the bios setup screen.

Recently my computer in the middle of usage with black out... screen blacks out, no lights on and it won't turn back on again. take out the battery wait 20 min or so and then it'll turn back on again....


Please follow the diagnosis outlined in this article to check whether the backlight lamp or the inverter board are the root cause of the problem or not:

If you connect the external monitor & nothing is displayed on it, then this means that both the backlight lamp & the inverter board are fine.

Help needed for acer aspire one


Please cheek you keypad F8 key. I think its pressed. That's why when you press power button after a while that page comes up. If that's key is perfect & not pressed then select "last known good configuration (your most recent settings that worked)" and run the system. May be some system file are missing or corrupted and you OS wants to restore it. That's why you faced that message. Don't worry. Just do it. Hope you get success. Thanks and waiting for your reply.

Here is a link to get the manual:

http://www.acerpanam.com/synapse/data/7117/documents/X193W%20(Qisda)%20user's%20manual.pdf

Starting on page 15 are the directions for the monitor controls. Page 17 indicates a "RESET" feture to Clear the Old-Statuses of "Auto-Configuration". There are quite a number of setting for this monitor.

Auto Config Please Wait message


Each monitor has a menu option. Find out with your manual how to access your menu options for your specific model and in there is an option to display messages or warnings. You can turn it off there.

Acer AL1716 Monitor Troubleshoot


You can try the following: - Early (very) in the boot routine tap either F5 or F8 to access a short startup menu - Choose 'Safe Mode' (this should give you some kind of display) If it does give you a screen; - Click Start - Select Control Panel - Open the System folder - Click on Hardware - Choose Device Manager - Find and open Monitors - Highlight whatever monitor is listed and delete it
With your monitor turned on and connected, reboot your PC.
I can't guarantee it but this may force Windows 'Plug and Play (or Pray)' to look for, find and then finally install some kind of driver (may not look like you want) to get your Desktop visible again.
Then you can adjust settings in the ontrol Panel's Display section.
Your monitor could be causing the problem but it is more likely Windows doing whatever it feels like (or nothing at all) again.

Monitor repeatedly flashes Acer logo and computer display in cycles


We had the same problem with the 17" we bought in Aug. Sent it back for repair. Acer sent it back without fixing the problem. Started doing it again in Nov. This time I called a supervisor and they sent me a new monitor. Well yesterday it started doing the same thing. You can fix it temp buy unplugging it and holding down the on-off switch for 30 seconds. Please let me know if you have a better fix.
