Acer AL1511 15" monitor Screen Menu Problem

My Acer monitor works fine on boot up and goes into auto setup mode but when the system is loaded the screen is black and the power light flashes rapidly. Just before it happend I was trying to correct the screen resolution to 1250 x 768 using the monitor menu as it kept coming up with a largeer screen resolution than I wanted. I have since found out that this was a system problem after I checked the computer on another monitor and it all works fine.

Any ideas or suggestions would be a great help,

Re: Acer AL1511 15" monitor Screen Menu Problem

What operating system do you use? If it is a windows OS press F8 while the system is booting to access the Boot Manager, choose to boot to last known good configuration and if this does not work retry but select safe mode and change the resolution back to the previous one.

No picture on screen but power supply is OK

Here is a couple of suggestions for this monitor. 1st check your connection to the computer.
make sure the VGA/HDMI/DVI is properly connected. 2nd check to see if the monitor is setup
to use the right source. Some monitors do this automatically others may need to be manually set.
either look for a button to do this or bring up the monitors menu by hitting the menu button. If the monitors menu button does'nt bring up a menu when the computer is off then the monitor is probably bad.

If the monitor works until the OS boots then goes black. The video card in your computer is set up
improperly with the monitor . In Windows hit F8 as the OS boots this will cause the computer to boot in safe mode. Once in safe mode right click on the desktop then go under properties then settings and change the display option to the correct monitor. You can also go to the device manager in my computer under system information, hardware, device manager and change the monitor here also.

Screen will not display

Have you ensured that your display card driver AND correct monitor driver is installed. This is to make sure that your display card only generates signals that your Acer monitor is capable of handling. If you do not have the driver CD for your monitor you can download the software from The problem is most likely that your display card is generating a refresh rate which your monitor cant handle. Go to your display properties and lower the refresh rate of your display card and see if this solves the problem.

How to change resulution when you get input not

Try starting Windows in Safe Mode. During boot, before windows starts loading, just keep tapping F8, until a menu appears in which you can select Safe Mode. In Safe Mode, set the resolution to a safe, low value in the control panel. Then reboot normally, and everything should work fine.

Input not support, Acer V193w

if the monitor is DVI conencted to PCI card, the computer will not see the monitor, on boot up, only in the Windows mode.
replace the DVI connecting with a VGA connection on the monitor, if there is no VGA connection on the monitor then you need to get a VGA monitor and connect that to theVGA port on the motherboard connector at the rear of the computer.

Acer AL1914 black screen, green light

it sounds like a deleted driver? try getting the driver for the monitor, did you loose the Operating system at some point, if so try a system restore to a date when the computer was working properlly prior to the malfunction. It sounds like it restored you to a time before the driver for that monitor was installed.

When your computer is starting up, hit F8 and you'll see the safe mode, safe mode with networking, etc. screen...You should see a choice that says "enable vga mode". Select that and windows will start and the os will select a screen resolution for you. After that, everything will work fine...I hope.

Good Luck!

Acer al1912 19" black

See if the problem happends in safe mode ( while booting hit F8 and aboot menu wil come up) if everything works fine then your issue will be the driver or a resulition that the display does not support or a refresh rate. Frist try to change the Res to a lower one and common (1024X768 or 800X600) also change the refresh to somewhere 70 to 75 and reboot if this dosent fix the problem try updating your video driver in safe mode

Screen goes black with white horizontal line.

WHEN does this problem occur? Does it ONLY happen after the computer loads Windows (or another OS), or does it happen as soon as you turn the monitor on? We really need more information before we can provide specific advice or suggestions... IF this happens as soon as you turn the monitor on, switch it with a different monitor. If the problem goes away, the original monitor is defective, and probably not worth the cost of repairing it. If the problem ONLY happens after you load Windows, boot the system into Safe Mode (press the F8 key during bootup until you see the menu which allows you to select Safe Mode), then reboot and see if the problem has been resolved; simply booting into Safe Mode, then rebooting the system into Windows MIGHT solve this WITHOUT requiring you to change any system settings... IF the problem remains in Windows AFTER you've booted into Safe Mode AND rebooted back to Windows, the videocard driver might be corrupted. In that case, you'll have to reinstall the vidcard driver to correct this problem... If all else fails, it IS possible that the videocard itself is defective; if installing an updated driver doesn't work, try swapping the videocard with a different one. BE SURE to uninstall the OLD videodriver, and install the proper one for the new videocard; if you don't install the correct driver, you could create MORE problems than you have right now...
