Computer monitor cycles on and off when the computer boots up but seems to have constant power when just turned on


The boot process goes through various display modes. Each time it switches, the monitor has to set itself for that mode. This causes the monitor to flicker while it's adjusting. Perfectly normal operation.

Ground Noise Problem Possibly Attributed to Samsung Monitor


Do you have another power adapter to try? Sometimes those go bad, and are pretty cheap to test out (around $35-$50). Otherwise it is the DC-in board on your PowerBook. I replace about 2 of those per month with our clients up here on the PowerBooks (and iBooks). The DC-in board on your 15" is also part of your sound board.

Acer LCD Monitor only displays "acer" logo


You are correct, it could be a power surge that has caused it.

Try this..
Unplug the monitor from the wall.
Remove all the video connections at the monitor end.
Wait 10 minutes then plug the monitor back into the wall (do not connect the video leads)

Turn it on and see if it goes past the ACER logo now. If so, replace the video cables and try the computer.
If not, then one of these will apply and a tech will be required..
  1. The internal bios has been corrupted.
  2. The power supply inside the monitor may have issues preventing the video board from starting correctly. This could be as simple as a few failing capacitors.
Number 2 is the most likely cause with an Acer monitor though. Any local tech will be able to correct it fairly cheaply, but phone around for quotes..they can vary a lot.

Got flat screen as a gift


This monitor requires a power supply with a POSITIVE tip polarity.
Monitor requires 12 Volt DC @ 3.3 Amps output.
Make sure voltage is 12 Volts DC [absolute requirement]

Power Supply can have greater than 3.3 Amp capacity. More amp capacity increases price, so I wouldn't go for more than 5 Amps [minimum 3300 milliAmps, 5000 milliAmps will be more than adequate].

Put a surge protector on your computer and monitor to extend their life....better yet, a power conditioning battery backup system, that can supply constant voltage, to compensate line voltage when A/C, furnace, or other major appliance kicks on.

Screen Whine


Hi, constant high pitched whine from most monitors have something to do with the horizontal frequency which is partly affected by the screen resolution as set in your computer display properties. Try lowering down your resolution or go into safe mode. if the whine disappears, it may be that the monitor is not fully capable of displaying too high a resolution. If the whine continues even at safe mode or lower screen res, then you would need to consult a qualified technician to check for defective components in the horizontal circuitry of your monitor. I wouldn't recommend that you take look due to the presence of extremely high voltage in that area. Hope this be of some help. pls post again how things turn up. kind regards.
