Monitor My monitor will go fuzzy and lock up, then go blank. If I move the monitor it may or may not resolve the problem temporarily. I am assuming there is a connection problem, but have no clue on how I can fix it.

The right hand 1/3 of the screen is blank. Cannot get anything to display

sounds like you have to set the monitor resolution using your computer. right click desktop... graphics options. or Properties. look for Resolution slider. Move it around. press apply. see what happens. if it now fits but is fuzzy. change the refresh rate eg. 60 Hz or 75 Hz. On the monitor itself there is typically a button that allows you to move the image to fit the screen, quite often these settings are inadvertently played with by children ect. look for buttons/ menu's on your monitor itself. play with the settings .

Out of the blue, the icons on my desktop are fuzzy/wavy. One day fine, the next fuzzy/wavy. I hooked up another monitor and got the same result. Any suggestions!

I'm assuming that you have tested the other monitor by using another cable so in that case the video card on your pc is dying, replace it.

Monitor went to time out when i moved mouse it came back fuzzy i rebooted and now all it does is launch, still fuzzy, but goes out immediately

Hope you are not using a Wireless mouse. If so change to a normal mouse. Click Start button - settings - Control panel - power management option.

Restore to the default settings by selecting from the dropdown list on the powe schemes tab - laptop\desktop and carefully look at the power management options. Please check for virus on your system with a good antivirus software. This should resolve the issue else you have to do a OS Repair. Good Luck.

Monitor lcd acer al2016w 20" letters and image are fuzzy,,why?

I also have an Asrock motherboard (M266A) and have the AL2216W. The image and text is also fuzzy. I did improve it a by by unplugging/replugging all of the connectors on the back of the computer. I believe my mouse had a somewhat loose connection and this was causing interference. I can actually create interference on screen by moving my mouse up and down.
These Acer monitors seem to be very sensitive. I also tried this monitor on a old Desktop with Win98 and another new laptop with XP and it looks good on those computers, but not on my Asrock based system.
