Question about Acer Computer Monitors

Monitor 'drop out'

I just bought a desktop package which includes an Acer AL2223W 22inch monitor-generally it works great except that when using certain programs or trying to view some web pages-especially those with light colored backgrounds-the monitor display flashes to black repeatedly making pages /programs impossible to view. Is it a problem with my monitor or my inbuilt graphics driver? My system is an AcerT690 with Intel Core 2 duo CPU 2.00GHZ-2046MB RAM with inbuilt RadeonX1550 graphics driver
Have tried adjusting monitor refresh rate etc but nothing works.

Ok, the problem with the monitor for programs is actually the Vista Aero. Found out that even though many programs are Vista compatible they do not run with Aero-used program compatibility wizard which reverted Aero to Windows Classic and all is well. Not sure if similar problem is affecting web pages though.

I tried to use my acer as a second monitor and it is connected to my GTX 550 Ti graphics card just like my Benq monitor. Whenever I turn on my computer the acer monitor shows the acer logo and then s


Incorporating a second monitor is a great Idea, I've used three to four on my workstations for many years. Setting up multiple monitors involves more than just hardware, the card manufacturer's software and operating system is involved. Since you didn't note the OS, I'll assume Win7. First, simply right click the desktop, and select "Screen Resolution" to see a page headed "Change the appearance of your displays," below which show be a graphic that shows both monitors with a number "1" and "2" on each. Arrange them by dragging and dropping them to reflect your physical arrangement. Then, select the fourth drop-down titled "Multiple" Displays" and select "Extend desktop onto this display," then click the "Apply" button followed by the "OK." button. If your hardware and drivers are set up properly, you should have everything working at this point. Your Nvidia software should have installed a control panel item that you can use to make tweaks to your system. You can also contact Nvidia technical support for more detailed, OS-specific assistance.

My side bar on acer monitor screen has become white. How can I solve this problem? I was told to click on the auto configuration key but can't find it.


If you have a white bar running up the side of the monitor, then it is probably dead. Acer has 3 year warranties on their monitors so you should call them to see if you are still in warranty. If so, they will fix it free!

If more than 3 years old, try it on another pc. If it is the same on another pc, get a new monitor.

Hope this helps!

Joe

How do i remove the back cover of my al2223W monitor?


Remove all the screws and the stand, then use thin flat blade screw driver to separate them starting at the bottom edge and work your way around, be careful on the cable attached to the front bezel.

Screen comes on says Acer then No Signal, and goes out. if shut power off and then back on get same result.


This means the monitor believes it's not connected to the computer. Verify the cables first of all. Then try booting in safe mode (F8 key at PC startup) in order to verify that the PC is sending data to the proper video port (you might have a dual VGA / Digital output, for example, and the monitor might be connected to the wrong PC port). Quite often, a "bad signal" will be the same of "no signal"; and you can have a bad signal if the monitor resolution on the PC is set too high. This could happen if you installed a high-resolution capable monitor, and then replaced it with a not-completely-plug-and-play, lower resolution one. The PC would keep sending hi-res signals to a monitor which can neither interpret them, nor tell the PC "please slow down". To check this last possibility, reboot your computer while the monitor is ON. When PCs reboot, they usually drop back to standard VGA signaling, which all monitors understand. If the monitor abruptly comes to life and displays a boot screen, then goes No Signal again after several seconds, you've got a resolution issue; get in Safe Mode with F8 key at boot, and modify the screen properties (right-mouse button on the desktop, then Properties).

If everything else fails, try also connecting the monitor to another PC or laptop, to see if it works there.

Acer 22" AL2223W monitor display goes black after a second


Look at the capacitors in the power supply. Replace them if they look bulged on wither side or leaking. Most likely it is the inverter (the flat object with copper coils about 2 inches long, 1 inch wide). Check the resistance with a multimeter to be sure its around 1000k on both pair ends. They supply the CCFL tubes with voltage. If one onthem is bad they are designed to shut off within 1-2 seconds. Note the inverter numbers and order the part from www.lcdparts.com. You won't get them anywhere as the parent company MoniServe makes the power supply board for Acer.

Acer 2223W monitor stand


There are indeed generic stands which rotate between portrait and landscape orientation. This monitor, like most monitors sold today, has generic "VESA" mounting holes, in the 100mm x 100mm (MIS-D, 100, C) configuration shared with most other flat screen PC monitors, so they can easily be used with a variety of stands that attach to the 4 holes in the center of the back side of the monitor.

Monitor going to stand bye as soon as turned on


  1. Make sure your monitor is properly connected to your CPU VGA ie the screw are tight and the cable is not damaged
  2. reduce down the setting of your screen resolution to those specified for your LCD or just low settings like 600*800
  3. To do that you use your old monitor and on the desktop right click and select properties and under the settings tab select to reduce the settings to native settings or any low screen resolution
  4. Restart your PC with your LCD connected back
