Question about Acer AL1717 17" LCD Monitor
I have plugged in the monitor to the computer, but it won't work unless you turn the monitor on then turn the tower on. Is this normal for these types of screens?
When you unplug the data cable from the PC, you should usually get a 'no signal' message from the screen itself.
Other LCDs (like in this case), you have to plug it in and turn it one slightly before your PC goes on, so it can auto-adjust to the resolution your PC has.
