I don't know that it is a common fault with this specific model, but laptops in general have this issue mostly due to a dying LCD power inverter. It is typicaly located at the bottom of the LCD screen and costs between $30 - $75 dollars for the part, and usually $75-$150 for someone to replace. If you like the laptop it is usually worth it to have replaced. You can also hook up a monitor to the VGA port on the laptop and then go into your display control panel and enable 2nd monitor to use it instead of your laptop lcd.

    I have an Acer Aspire 5740 Core i3 notebook. And the same problem happened to my notebook after 1 month of buying. I sent the notebook back to Acer. They fixed it. But the problem came back again after one week. Then I sent the notebook back to them again. Again they fixed it. Than I used it for 2 months and again the same problem occurred. Then I sent the notebook again and again they fixed it. LOL....
    Now the computer is fine. May be this specific model is problematic... But if you send your computer to Acer and if you have warranty period left they will fix it for you I think.

Hello, have you tried reseating the memory, taking out memory and installing another? It could be a faulty memory module and if it isnt that sounds like the graphics processor on the motherboard is faulty. That requires advanced soldering skills. Hope this helps.

No. Don't order motherboard now... try changing RAM. Similar problems are because of faulty RAM only. And it won't cost you more to replace the RAM. Its very certain you will get rid of this problem by this only.

Acer AL1716 monitor flickers


i Have the same problem, this screen is used on the spare computer we have in a loft conversion and the room does get rather cold, Warming the screen up with a fan heater for a couple of minutes gets rid of the problem. When the fault occurs the buttons on the front to adjust the picture quality don't work they just turn off the monitor.
