Monitor Flashes Gray, Then nothing

I came home to a black screen yesterday. I turned the monitor off and back on, it flashes grey a few times, but never gives me the picture.

the green light stays on like it has a signal, but there is no picture ( and yes the computer is working fine) I am using an old CRT monitor in the meantime.

Is it toast?

Try to decrease the screen resolution. try to 640 x 480 then raise to 800 x 600. for old CRT monitor maybe have a problem with 1024 x 768. if decrease not work, then you might have a hardware problem, you need to purchase a new one. try the test first. maybe you can test with your monitor of your friends first :-), if work, you need to purchase a new one.

    LCD i think better than CRT, then the problem is in your old vga card. your old vga card cannot display the high resolution. Try to decrease it. consider to upgrade the VGA Card if you now have a new LCD Monitor. Anyway try to decrease first the resolution. maybe 800 x 600 or perhaps 640 x 480.

Monitor flashes on then goes black.


I think you have the display shut off. the button on the bottom left will shut screen off. It will come on for a few seconds if you touch the screen, but will shut off again. just push the display button again and it should stay on.

You either have a hardware problem with your video card. ( may have pop out of socket when you plug in the monitor) or the cable is not allow communication to the monitor. As long as the amber light comes on you know you have power so focud on data cables and hardware.

Monitor repeatedly flashes Acer logo and computer display in cycles


We had the same problem with the 17" we bought in Aug. Sent it back for repair. Acer sent it back without fixing the problem. Started doing it again in Nov. This time I called a supervisor and they sent me a new monitor. Well yesterday it started doing the same thing. You can fix it temp buy unplugging it and holding down the on-off switch for 30 seconds. Please let me know if you have a better fix.
