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,

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.

Wont boot/ says auto config over and over

Then use Recovery Console:
To boot from the Windows XP CD, insert it into the CD-ROMdrive on the problem system and press [Ctrl][Alt][Delete] to reboot thecomputer. Once the system begins booting from the CD, simply follow the promptsthat will allow the loading of the basic files needed to run Setup. When yousee the Welcome To Setup screen, press R to start the Recovery Console.

You'll then see a Recovery Console menu. It displays the foldercontaining the operating system's files and prompts you to choose the operatingsystem you want to log on to. Just press the menu number on the keyboard, andyou'll be prompted to enter the Administrator's password. You'll then findyourself at the main Recovery Console prompt.

After restarting windows use a system utility software like RegInOut.

My acer aspire one laptop 532h-2db blank screen . help me pls.

If there is still light on it there are two possible points of failure. But we need to isolate first if it is a hardware or a OS issue. To do this you need to try to boot to the BIOS.
> Restart the computer and tap on F2 continously until you see a setup screen or the screen saying loading system setup.

If is goes to the system setup, then the issue is with the OS. Try to boot to safe mode.
Restart the computer and then keep on tapping F8 until you get a black screen with white writings on it that says safe mode, safe mode with networking. Choose Safe Mode. If this works, you just need to reinstall the video driver.
If booting to the BIOS does not work, then the problem is hardware related.
Try to connect an external monitor and then press Fn + F5, if the screen shows up on the external monitor then you have a problem with the LCD screen of your portable. You need to have it replaced.
If It does not show up, you need to have the video card replaced on the laptop which is embedded on the motherboard which pretty much is the whole electronic component underneath your keyboard.
Unfortunately this means it will be more economical to buy a new laptop. 1.

Dell Dimension 3000 Video problem

There may be a problem with your windows installation. Search Google for Hirens boot CD, it is a free download and should contain a live XP installation. When you turn on the computer tap the appropriate button to reach the boot menu, then insert the CD and select your CD drive. Once booted it should display a live XP.
Alternatively you may have your monitor set to an incompatible resolution. If tapping F8 won't display the advanced boot menu then try finding an auto setup on your monitor or change the resolution using the monitors controls. If the advanced boot menu does display then select low resolution mode.
Hope this helps,

Remove printer drivers

You can check your laptop further by booting it from Safe Mode. To boot your computer in Safe Mode, try to tap continuously F8 function key on your keyboard immediately when you start your computer. It will lead you to an Advanced Menu from where you can choose the option "Safe Mode" and hit enter to boot your computer to safe mode. Now try to check the display driver in the device manager (Control Panel >System > Hardware >Device Manager) If it is not there, try to reduce the screen resolution and reboot your computer to the normal mode. If you are still getting the blank screen in Normal mode, try to boot computer back in Safe Mode and try to restore your computer to earlier time when it was working fine for you. To do so click on Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point in the "On this list, click a restore point" list, and then click Next. Now confirm the restoration and click on Next to complete the restoration and follow the wizard.

My srceen goes Blank


first try booting the laptop and pressing the Fn key with the numerical ( numbered key ) that has a picture of 2 screens on it. This is for booting to an external monitor. you could also try adding an external ( pc monitor ) this will eliminate any motherboard Faults.

Secondly, the graphics chip driver may be corrupt or not installed correctly. if you have a restore cd, you could try booting the laptop, with the cd in the drive.

you can then try, to see if the settings in the bios are all correct, by booting/starting the laptop and pressing esc or F2 or delete immediately as the laptop starts. ** Be-Careful** what you adjust.
My suggestion is to look for. ** default settings tab** or load setup defaults.

these are the obvious things to try, before assuming that you have a faulty graphics chip or motherboard fault.

Blank screen

Have you tried starting in the 'Safe Mode?'
If not, either F5 or F8 (right after anything  appears on the screen) will bring up a short menu to allow you to choose the boot mode; choose the Safe Mode. This loads only the most basic windows files and will let you do some fundamental checking of the hard drive and Win installation.
If you can get that far, Click on 'Start,' then 'Run' and enter 'rstrui' and OK. This should start the Restore routine.    

If it does, choose 'Restore to an earlier date.' Hopefully you have had Restore turned on and then you will have a calendar with light and bold dates. Choose a date a few days in the past and let it run.
This may or may not put you back in operation.

After booting process done. Screen goes blank and Keyboard not working only Mouse cursor is dispaly and working on the blank screen in My acer Laptop.

Try booting the system to Safe mode.

To boot to safe mode:

Restart the computer. As soon as the BIOS has finished loading, F8 key on your keyboard. When Windows Options menu appears, scroll to select the Safe mode menu item, and then press Enter.

Select "Last known good configuration" then press Enter.

If that doesn't work reboot again and keep tapping on F8 to Safe Mode and instead of selecting "last known good configuration" select "Repair Your Computer"

Or you can try this:
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";}
  1. Place your Windows XP set up disk in your CD drive.
  2. Turn off your computer and change your BOOT order to boot from CDs first.
  3. Turn your computer back on.
  4. Press any key on your keyboard when it asks you to.
  5. Press enter when you see a blue screen, one of the options should say, "To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.".
  6. Press enter to start the windows set up.
  7. Accept the Licence and Agreement and confirm that the setup is searching for current versions on XP.
  8. Press "R" when the set up has found your current version of XP.
  9. Notice that the Set up is deleting all your windows xp files and replacing them. (This will not cause loss of data)

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
