Lately the screen have started to turn black at windows startup, and i had to turn it off and on again then it would work for a second or two then go black again. I had to do this multiple times, and after i while it would work as normal. (the power indicator light remained green all the time ) However, when i woke up today the monitor no longer respond when i turn it on, no lights, no short flash, absolutely nothing. The power indicator light remains off. Is this the end of my monitor?

Re: cant turn on my Acer AL1912B
This reply has only historical significance since both are many months old.
Without making a few measurements no exact diagnosis is possible but based on your descriptions, the power supply has to have failed.
Kris' problem happened more gradually so whichever part that was marginal allowed a few starts before failing completely
Yabbit's failure was more immediate and this one would have been easier to find in a repair.
Switched mode power supplies can be as reliable (and are more efficient) as linear supplies that are much simpler.
But poor component quality can damn a supply to early failure much more certainly than in the linear supply.
It could be years before the industry realizes that it can't cheat on quality and still maintain a positive reputation.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Step 1: Shut down your PC completely. Step 2: Turn on the Power button. Step 3: As soon as you turn it on start hitting the F8 key on your keyboard until you get to a black screen called "Windows Advanced option". (If you don't get to that screen but you end up reaching the Blue/Black screen than that means you have delayed in hitting the F8 key. start again from step 1.) Step 4: As soon as you reach "Windows Advanced option" use your down arrow keys to choose an option called "Last know good configuration". Step 5: Select that and HIT ENTER
if this fails then try repairing it from recovery console.
Insert the OS CD and boot from CD.
During Startup, select Recovery Console from the startup options menu.
When you are prompted, type the Administrator password.
You may have gotten a virus that started with the windows openning. Normally use ALT-F4 to shut these screens down fast. Always ensure you are running an up to date virus checker. But, your subsequent actions may have caused irrepairable damage to your OS. Do you have a virus check disk you can start with?
Worst case, do you have your windows disk? You may need to re-install windows to get a clean start.
If you need to do this but have data that you must not lose, try pressing F8 during startup and starting in safemode with prompt. You can retrieve data in this mode if you need to (if you don't know how, ask, or research command prompt and windows directories).
1.- Start up your computer and before windows start hit F8 2.- You will see a black screen with many options 3.- Select "Safe Mode" 4.- After Windows loaded up, uninstall the last programs. 5.- Restart in normal mode
You should go into the safe mode and try to uninstall or undo the previous work. Else use the system restore. But if it continues again with a blue screen error, then u should format ur pc, further if u experience blue screen error then u should note that one of ur hardware is damaged.
yes you can fix this problem go in to start menu then control panel then double click display, then screen resulution and add the secondary screen, bc windows doesn't add the screen automaticlly you have to do it this way
theres a good chance that the hard drive platletes and parking head have been damaged, although this is not a huge problem to replace, as long as your screen is working ok, then it is worth replacing.
you can access it on the underside of the casing, in the largest compartment, remove all screws and the hard drive will be held in with more screws.
