Re: Acer Monitor Display of text and image is not sharp
This might seem obvious, but is your video card output set to the native resolution on the monitor? If not, it will look fuzzy. Try 1680x1050, if you don't know the monitors native resolution. No need to use anything higher than a 60hz refresh rate either.

The stated native resolution of this monitor is 1600 x 900. If you set your display resolution to that in your computer's configuration, you will get the sharpest display.
Note that there is always a trade-off between sharp image and the size of displayed items on the screen. By that I mean that if you set your display to 1600x900, your text will be sharp, but it will be smaller on the screen than if you see the resolution to 1280x720, for example. The trade-off would be larger text (say, if you have vision problems), but the text would not be as crisp.
Experiment with a few different resolutions to see what looks the best and has the best text size on your screen.
Note also that most browsers will let you enlarge the web page on your display by pressing Ctrl+ repeatedly until you get the size you want. Pressing Ctrl- will reduce the web page displayed size.
franh, Typical of a lcd/fpd monitor! There is nothing you or hundreds of others can do to repair it all by yourself. I have repaired 3 monitors and helped tutor 2 others on fixya with their monitors. All had same exact symptom as your monitor. I need you to do a simple test for me. With failed Acer monitor near to your Fully Booted PC with a known good desktop being displayed on back-up monitor, quickly swap out the monitor cables from the back of the PC. Keep touching the CTRL key on you keyboarb every 30-50 seconds to keep the PC from sending out sleep mode command to monitor while doing the reconnect of acer to your PC monitor output port. Make sure the Acer also is connected to a live wall outlet/power strip. Turn on the Acer and note what happens. If screen shows a sharp clear image for a second, then goes black, do the following. Get a bright flashlight and shine it on the screen from a distance of 1 or 2 inches and tell me if you can see the desktop display. get back to me with your observations. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aol.com.
hi, when all connected press and hold the FN key on the bottom left of the keypad while pressing one of the function keys F1 to F12(the one with picture of a screen or monitor). You may need to press it more than once but if will eventually switch the display over to the tv
mt, the 6 to 8 lines you were seeing were most likley the prelude to the end of the monitor. If the problem only occurs when the screen saver comes on then I could say the driver maybe being corrupted by a certain screensaver picture or program. When the monitor warms up to a certain temprature the electronics start to fail. You may want to turn off the monitor while your not right in front of it to cool it down and prolong its use.
