Evidently there is a loose connection within one of the ribbon cables going to the screen, you will have to open the monitor and reseat them.
otherwise quit using the internal speakers as the vibration may kill the monitor dead.

See if they match your monitor.

Best thing to do is to get the numbers as printed on the board and Google it.

My acer makes a whining noise whenever its brightness is set to low how can i fix it?


that buzzing noise is frequency response from the cathodes (back lights) and the inverter inside that monitor.

Personally, i'd keep the brightness up a bit more to alleviate the issue. I'd also check to see if the power that is going to the device is clean. Sometimes there can be issue with power causing frequency disturbance and can cause some pretty random issues with power sensitive devices.

Try running a battery backup or power strip to see if it helps.

Acer 1717


Hi,

"noisy vertical bars in the video" is indicative of 60 Hz AC component riding in with the video signal. Pls check that all connectors are snug and fit to where they are connected. It would do no harm to try to remove and reinstall/reconnect all cables. Additionally, try plugging in the monitor into a different socket/AC mains. Further, you may want to try and check your cable for any stray shielding or anything out of the ordinary.

Other than the above, could not suggest more easy user action. The alternatives are to try a different monitor to determine if it is the computer video card or the Acer 1717 that is in question; or try the Acer 1717 in another PC. It should be mentioned that some household appliances can also cause AC interference such as florescent lamps, wireless phones or even an electric clock.

Of course you can also try increasing your PC's Screen refresh Rate to anything other than 60Hz.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My monitor turns itself off


If it's only a few months old then send it back under warranty.
The fault you have is the inverter circuit.

Hope that helps. =)

Input Not Supported?


Try changing the resolution in the game. If that doesn't work change the resolution in 'Control Panel' under 'Display'
