Re: MONITOR MEDION MD7317 NOT WORKING
I have some 19 inch medion monitors that have the same problem .. they make a lot of noise and the screen might be jittery/fuzzy ... i found the following:
several capacitors in the power supply (inside the monitor) had their tops buldging .. that shows that internal pressure was high in the caps, usually caused by them being hot and thats caused by high internal leakage .. the caps may eventually blow out the tops (explosion vents) .. the caps are designed to do that instead of becoming a bomb ..
all the bad electrolytic capacitors i have seen so far on these monitors, motherboards and other electronics have been chinese made .. they made millions of bad caps over several years ..
almost all the bad caps had buldged tops but not always .. once in a while i see one thats open but not bulbged .. probably venting elsware ..
i changed the obviously bad caps and the monitors returned to like new performance ..
i dont know about the 17 inch but the 19 inch medion flat pro display is not too hard to take apart .. about 30 screws or so ... speakers have to be unscrewed and you have to be careful not to stress cables that go to the push buttons .. of course you have to know how to solder without bridging paths

Fuzzy on the internet and everything else or fuzzy just on the internet? check for monitor resolution and see if you have the screen resolution set right. If you have the resolution set too low, the screen can appear more fuzzy if the aspect ratio is not set right.
Try another known good working monitor on your computer, if the screen looks good then you know the monitor is bad. If the known good working monitor looks fuzzy as well then you know the video card is bad on it and would need to be replaced.
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.
Try looking at the Monitors Plug, Look directly into the Plug, you should see 15 small pins inside the plug.
Sometimes one or two of these pins get bent over and no longer makes contact. If you do see a pin than is not pointing straight out like the reset, the best thing to do is to use a small pair of needle nose pliers to gently straighten the pin. Be very careful becouse once a pin is bent it can break easily.
My MD7317 did the same thing until I actually installed the driver for it. My windows did not have the correct driver in it's driver base, so I found the driver online ( took a few minutes of searching) and within a few minutes of installation the monitor displayed a great colorful picture. Naturally, I had to use another monitor while I was searching. Driver is about 3.3 megs. It came in a zip format. I did not keep track of the link to driver, but it omly took a few minutes to locate it.
Here is one small solution.
goto start: -> control panel -> display
click on the "appearance" tab.
then click on "effects"
check the box that says: Use the following method to smooth the edges of screen fonts (and make sure to choose "cleartype")
You should notice the fonts are a little sharper as well as having a backdrop.
I have exactly the same problem with my Medion 17" TFT monitor. It is not the video card (tried changing it) or the motherboard. Fitting a different monitor makes the problem go away. The monitor does not display the "No Signal" message when unplugged from the PC either.
It must be a fault in the monitor, and as it seems to be a design fault. I suggest you contact Medion and nag for a replacement.
