Re: computer

Is the power light on?

If it is and is a new screen the liklyhood is that the screen you had previously was a different size meaning that it has different settings, some cards / screens aren't auto sensing.

either plug your old screen in and change the resolution to that of the new screen, or reset the video memory, you will have to research which keys to hold down on start up, as its different per machine.

If neither of the above works, try the screen on a computer you know works, and if it doesn't work on that send it back to where you bought it, if it does .......... you have to start to troubleshoot your PC/Mac start with the VideoCard ......

Screen started to flash pic's then went blank...tnx's joe


It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitorswill blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts calledcapacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you aregood at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should workfine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and -connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one thesame way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

No pic on screen

Double check all of your connections. It appears the video cable is not plugged in completely. Try another monitor if possible to see if the computer is actually outputting video.

Acer X243w monitor as a TV Pic great but "not supported" box

My assumtion is that the monitor is not displaying in 1920x1080 but has defaulted to a resolution that it can handle so as to display something. Step down the resolutions on the monitor until the gray box disappears. If you're satisfied with the picture your watching then hopefully you will be happy when you find the resolution the monitor is actually displaying.
Good luck!
