Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

Annoying discolouration across monitor

My Acer AL1916W has developed some strage red discolorations across the screen. They move on approximately a 45 degree angle from the top of the screen to the bottom. This discoloration covers nearly the entire monitor.

The discoloration is most noticeable on white backgrounds whilst hardly visible once I am playing games.

I have connected the monitor to both of my computers with the same result each time. I have also used different power supply and monitor cables for each computer with the same result.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

My al1916w monitor has a vertical blue stripe on the left side. It works fine except that the striped area discolors video. How do I fix that?


Unfortunately, a stripe on an LCD monitor indicates a physical failure of the LCD panel itself. The only solution is to replace the panel with a new one.

Annoying Nuisance on the monitor


Run your system in 'Safe Mode'. Go to Display settings and set lowest possible resolution. Then restart computer and run windows again in normal mode. Should have normal screen. If this will not work - then under safe mode uninstall graphic card. Then run windows with standard ones and in LOWEST possible resolution install drivers again. I have had it many times and it made swear first time.

Input not supported when trying to play a game


the game will need to be set to the same screen resolution as your monitor or the best that suits, beccause of it being widescreen, so look in the graphic or video settings in the game, or change the resolution of your monitor to suit the games highest setting. This is done by right clicking on your desktop, down to properties and then the settings tab in the next window and then move the slider at the screen resolution box.
