My Acer AL2671W LCD TV video is terrible. Too bright a screen. I have the DVI (for VGA only) and VGA ports working but the picture is still bright. I have sound on all input connections but I'm missing TV on the TV Tuner input. Just the sound is working there. I have to hard boot the TV/Monitor to get it going as well. With all of the video adjustment turned to the lowest level, I can use it as a PC monitor. I have never used the TV Tuner until now preferring to use a SAT Capture Card for my Video. What part could I replace to get the screen toned down so it doesn't look like the sun on the default setting!
I also have never been able to get the DVI-D input to work using two vid cards, currently using the Geforce 7300. Thanks.
I had the same problem with my TV when I purchased it used. Select the input you are having troubles with and enter "Service Mode" by pressing and holding the "VOL - " button and "CHAN + " buttons on the TV, simultaneously until the screen flashes red one time.
At this point you will be in service mode. Pressing the "MENU" button will open a service menu, which is different from the typical user menu. From the service menu you can further adjust your image settings until you have a decent picture.
Initially my VGA input looked terribly bright and washed out. Now it looks incredible!

There should not be a driver required for this. As long as your HP desktop has a VGA video or HDMI video output, you can connect to the back panel of the TV from the video port of the PC. Then, on the remote, select the "PC" option for VGA input, or HDMI for the HDMI 1 or 2 input(s). If the PC only has DVI output, then it is important to know if the output is analog or digital. If it is digital (DVI-D or DVI-DD] then there is no available port on the TV to support it. Using a DVI-VGA adapter on a DVI digital output will not work as there must be a digital-to-analog conversion in order to work.
Connect the VGA cable to the converter and the component video cable to the TV and the converter with the computer and TV off. Turn on the TV first and set it to the component video input and then turn on the computer. Then (assuming the VGA port is enabled - adjust in the BIOS if needed) set the computer's video output to the VGA port. (On my Windows 7 laptop, this can be done by right-clicking on the desktop. Choose Graphics Properties and set the display to the external monitor or both. Click Apply and then confirm the change (on the external monitor if using the single monitor). (VGA to Composite video converters also exist if you do not have an available component video input on your TV.)
If your computer is fairly new, you may have an HDMI port. Your TV may be able to read the signal with a DVI to HDMI cable. (It depends on the TV. Not all of them will read the computer's signal on the DVI port. Check the documentation for your model. TVs without a VGA port are less likely to support this feature.)
Compare internal and external TV tuners that are designed for use with computers. See if the tuner supports HD, DVI, component video, S-video, stereo, surround sound or other features you might like to use. Ensure that any internal devices will work with the expansion slots in your computer.
Purchase a regular TV tuner if your monitor has S-video, coaxial or RCA inputs. These can be seen at the back of the monitor. S-video should be clearly marked; coaxial is a large round port, and RCA inputs are typically smaller and brightly colored. If your monitor does not have these inputs, purchase a special TV tuner designed just for computer monitors. If you would like to use the tuner with your computer and monitor, choose an internal TV tuner. If you're using your computer monitor as a television on its own, select a stand-alone external tuner. Install the internal TV in your computer, if applicable.
Connect the TV tuner to the monitor with the proper cable. Select S-video as the connection option if both your tuner and monitor support it. Choose RCA component video as your next option. Use coaxial only if your monitor and tuner do not have the aforementioned connections. If your monitor has none of these connections, use a standard VGA cable to connect the tuner and monitor.
Connect the tuner's audio outputs to your monitor's speakers. If your monitor has no speakers directly attached, connect external speakers to the TV tuner. This can usually be achieved using regular audio or RCA cable.
Install an HD antenna high on a wall if you will be picking up free over-the-air television signals with your monitor. If you will be using satellite or cable TV with your monitor, simply plug the satellite or cable set top box into the tuner using RCA or coaxial cables. Then connect the tuner directly to the monitor.
Set your tuner to the channel you use to pick up television stations. If you receive free over-the-air television, this channel will be 3 or 4. If you have satellite or cable TV, this station is determined by your television service provider. Check the documentation that came with your system to determine which channel to set the tuner on. You will probably need to change channels using the satellite or cable box rather than the TV tuner.
Acer AL2671W 26in problems: (1) sometimes sound but no picture, (2) or screen freezes pink etc. (3) or remote won't turn it on/off (4) or it gives up and says "no signal". Turning it off/on usually solves it temporarily.
The same VGA cable you would use to connect it to a computer monitor.

For error code 0122, Don't play the movie or load your movie program until you have the resolution you want and have it set to display only on the hdtv . You do this by going to control panel, selecting "adjust common used mobility settings", and then clicking on "connect display. A pop-up will come up and give you the option to display only on the external display. Pick that. The thing that sucks is if you have the display set to 1920 x 1080, you can't see everything on your desktop when trying to view it on the tv.
that's really easy. just plug in a VGA or DVI cord from the PC to the Sova TV (those are both regular cables that normally would go the computer monitor). then press the source button on the remote (not too fast, it takes a second to detect the signal), until you see VGA or DVI, and your computer screen should show up. use the display settings on your computer to get the best resolution on the tv. depending on your computer, you may have a program that can save different screen resolution profiles for you (since the Sova TV resolution and the computer's optimized resolution using a different screen (such as the built in screen on a laptop -- or a different monitor with better resolution than the Sova TV), this way you can easily toggle between settings depending on what monitor you use.
Unfortunately you are trying to mix two different video types: VGA is an analog video interface found on most computers (except for latest with flat panel monitors, which are usually DVI). Your TV DVI interface is digital (although there is a DVI-A, which is an anlog DVI interface, it is unlikely that your TV has this). So, what you are trying to do probably won't work. I assume your computer does not have DVI output (otherwise you wouldn't have bought the adapter), but some monitors have VGA inputs; does yours? What kind of DVI adapter did you get? Is a DVI-A? Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dvi for info on DVI interfaces.
