Question about Acer AL2016W 20" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I have an Acer AL2016W and the display is in proportion at 1680 X 1050 (the default) but everything is smaller than I am comfortable with. Any ideas of how I can get the display larger w/o losing proportion?

Acer monitor wont turn on or off?


Hello,

This type of problem is usually caused by a failure in the power supply board. Here is a link to a repair guide that shows how to dis-assemble and repair the power supply board. If you can do a little soldering then you can repair the monitor.

Acer 2016W - When powered on, it shows colored lines (blue, green, red, yellow - vertical) and then goes to a blueish-green display color, no deskktop display at all, have tried switching out monitor...


Yep,

When the capacitors start to go out it causes the power supply to not provide the correct voltages. You monitor has the back light power but the 5v power going to the video driver board is not working correctly. Here is a link to a repair guide that will show you how to open the unit, remove the power supply board and what capacitors need to be replaced.

Acer wide screen monitor 20'' font and images all


Right click on the desktop in a clear area and scroll down to either resolution or properties. From this you can experiment with resolution settings to see which setting best fits your display. After each setting change the computer will ask you if you want to accept the changes, it will give you 15 seconds for each change.

Computer won't recognize monitor driver


Its the usb, if u connect the monitor via the standard port, the vga port, it will work. If your monitor only have an dvi cable you can fix that by an adapter. That adapter should be an DVI to VGA.

Good luck to you

Monitor lcd acer al2016w 20" letters and image are fuzzy,,why?


I also have an Asrock motherboard (M266A) and have the AL2216W. The image and text is also fuzzy. I did improve it a by by unplugging/replugging all of the connectors on the back of the computer. I believe my mouse had a somewhat loose connection and this was causing interference. I can actually create interference on screen by moving my mouse up and down.
These Acer monitors seem to be very sensitive. I also tried this monitor on a old Desktop with Win98 and another new laptop with XP and it looks good on those computers, but not on my Asrock based system.
