    auto config pops up and the screen goes blank. It does this on multiple machines

  • Patrick Riedijk Feb 07, 2009

    My Acer AL1916W also does this, Auto config popsup, and the auto config function is really adjusting the screen (colors change, the position of the visual moves). When it stops,automatically and directly it pops-up again...What to do?

    I already removed the screendriver via Config/Hardware, and even when rebooting and reinstalling the pop-up kept active... 
    so not a driver problem from the video card...
    Seems a hardware problem from the monitor...

    Q is: how to turn it of?

    i have a AL1715b Acer LCD Monitor and the "auto config" pops up frequently sometimes once ever few seconds and then other times will wait for a minute or two before popping up. also, my Menu on the monitor will come up when depressed the when you remove your finger from the button the menu will disappear.

    what is the solution?

If it gives you message about the resolution, set the computer to use native resolution of the monitor. You can change the resolution by right clicking on desktop and choosing "screen resolution".

I keep getting an ''Auto Config Please Wait'' sign popping up non stop in a grey box on the center of my screen. How do I stop it?????

once you are online, go to the website for the monitor, and download the latest drivers. if that doesn't help, go to computer makers site, and do same thing. Seems the driver you need is absent from operating system.

Think I fixed it.. My monitor kept flashing autoconfig and shaking a little, so I went to control panel - clicked on system - clicked Hardware - clicked on device manager - clicked display adapters - and updated the driver. Re-booted computer..
So far so good... Fingers Crossed..

Starting on page 15 are the directions for the monitor controls. Page 17 indicates a "RESET" feture to Clear the Old-Statuses of "Auto-Configuration". There are quite a number of setting for this monitor.

Auto Config Please Wait message

Each monitor has a menu option. Find out with your manual how to access your menu options for your specific model and in there is an option to display messages or warnings. You can turn it off there.
