Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

Monitor boots ok, then "Analog" appears/monitor shuts off

Does it have a digital port being used? If you are using the DVI port, it is probably digital. Try using the menu to selct the port. If it doesn't work, not sure from here. What is the model number?

Inoperative monitor

Here are a couple things to try.

1. try the input select button on the monitor (The minnus button) without pressing the OSD menu button 1st, see if it changes to analog.

When the DVI self-test screen is up, it is indicating monitor is in DVI mode.

2. If that doesn't work, try a DVI to analog converter on the DVI port on the monitor and connect the analog cable to the converter. See if you get any video that way.

3. If you can access the On-Screen Display (OSD Menu) perform a factory reset.

I was tring to Connect Two Computers to One Monitor, but i didnt get it, does someone know how to do so? I bought a KVM switch, USB to use between a new Acer running Win XP and old Dell with Win 98. Could...

I guessing that since **-one responded you've given up and returned the whole mess but what the hey.

A lot depends on the KVM you're using. There are some high end units that will match different sources to the monitor but most work best with matched input and output. Unless you's specifically states that it will convert analog to digital it won't. So if it's an analog KVM then both the computer video boards need to have an analog VGA jack and the monitor does too. If the KVM is ditital you need to have all the systems and monitor digital. Savi? The Monitor may support boath analog and digital input but NOT at the same time. You can't plug in two computers at the same time, that's what the KVM is for.

The bottom line here is that you typically need to run the least common de**minator to use a KVM. Also, if the computers have different frequency (resolution) out put and you hit the KVM switch then the monitor will freak out. Some monitors will auto-switch between frequencies but most don't (especially the cheapies).

There are adapters that will down convert digital to analog. If you're dead set on using the KVM with that old Dell then you may need to plug the down converter into the Acer Video Board but you'll loose the high resolution and sharp picture from the digital video. If it was me and I had to use the KVM, I'd get a cheap digital video card for the Dell or just run two monitors.

I run 5 systems on my desk, Three of which are older servers with analog video. They share an analog KVM with video and keyboard on the wall. The other two systems are current generation and share a KVM and 27" flat panel center desk. I also have a laptop that hangs on the other wall with a laser blue tooth keyboard on the other side of my desk. Now if my wife would only let me turn part of her craft studio into a server room.....

Problem with Digital Input


You may need to switch monitor selection in your Display Properties. You need to activate twin/dual view in your Display Properties. Right click on any clear area of your desktop, click on Properties, click on Settings tab, select monitor 1 or 2 depending which is your primary and which is your secondary (analog/digital). Check (or uncheck-whichever works) on box "Extend....". Apply, OK.

There is an application that is supposed to facilitate twin or dual view configuration, UltraMon. This may be better/safer way to address your concern.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you have other concerns.

Good luck and kind regards.
