This is Acer AL1916W is 2008 model year, you just bought it brand new? it should come with the CD for edisplay management software that you need to install in your PC to enable/disable the anti-theft. I would take it back to where you bought it from and have them remove the anti-theft since the seller has activated it.
Please read the user manual that come with this monitor for details.

    Car won't start.Theft light blinks,clicking sound under hood and thumping like horn wants to go off.Seems like it's stuck in anti theft mode

    anti theft light should blink every few seconds.

    try disconnecting the battery for 15 minutes.

    Anti-Theft-Perimeter The perimeter anti-theft system consists of the following components:
    • anti-theft indicator (THEFT)
    • remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module
    • hood switch
    • keyless entry remote transmitter
    • deck lid ajar switch
    NOTE: The remote entry features will not function when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACC position.
    Up to four keyless entry remote transmitters (15K601) can be programmed at one time.
    The keyless entry remote transmitters :
    • Are programmable.
    • Must be set at the same time.
    • House four buttons.
    • House three buttons (Mexico Anti-Theft System only).
    Refer to Section 501-14B.
    Inputs and Outputs
    The remote anti-theft personality (RAP) module receives input from the following components for anti-theft operation:
    • Hood switch.
    • Deck lid ajar switch.
    • Keyless entry remote transmitter.
    • Power door lock switches (LH and RH).
    • Door courtesy input.
    The RAP module distributes output to the following for the anti-theft system:
    • Power door unlock relay.
    • Power door lock relay.
    • Liftgate unlock relay (Wagon)
    • Park lamps relay.
    • HORN relay.
    • Dome lamp.
    • THEFT indicator.
    • Deck lid release.
    The anti-theft system can be armed if:
    • The ignition switch is in the OFF position.
    • The panic alarm is off.
    • All doors are closed.
    NOTE: If a door is open, the anti-theft system is prearmed and waiting for all the doors to be closed. The THEFT indicator will remain illuminated for up to 30 minutes waiting for all the doors to be closed. If a door remains open after 30 minutes, the THEFT indicator will turn off and the system will return to a disarmed state. After all doors are closed and the 30 second prearm (continuous THEFT indicator illumination) is complete, the system is armed.
    NOTE: If the theft LED does not flash after 30 seconds, check the LED FLASH PID to see if the feature is enabled.
    The anti-theft system will be armed when the lock button on the keyless entry remote transmitter is pressed, all doors are closed and 30 seconds have elapsed.
    When the system is armed, the THEFT indicator will flash quickly until the system is triggered or disarmed.
    NOTE: Using a key in a door lock cylinder to unlock is not a valid method of disarming the anti-theft system.
    Untriggered System
    NOTE: If the driver arms the system and remains in the vehicle, an untriggered system can be disarmed by turning the ignition switch to the ON position.
    An untriggered alarm system can be disarmed by pressing the unlock button on the keyless entry remote transmitter.
    Triggered System
    NOTE: If the hood or trunk are open when the system is armed, it must be closed and opened again before it can trigger an alarm.
    An armed anti-theft system can be triggered by the following conditions:
    The deck lid door, liftgate, hood or any door is opened using a key, inside door handle, hood release, etc.
    • The keyless entry remote transmitter can activate a panic alarm which is similar to the anti-theft alarm, but does not cause the THEFT indicator to flash.
    A triggered alarm system can be disarmed by:
    • Pressing the unlock or panic button on the keyless entry remote transmitter.
    • Turning the ignition switch to the ON position.
    Alarm State When Battery Power Is Cycled
    When the RAP module is supplied power the first time at the vehicle assembly plant, the system will be in the disarmed state. The RAP module will remember whether it is armed, disarmed or triggered in its non-volatile memory. When the battery positive cable is removed and then reconnected, the system will return to the state it was in just before the battery was disconnected. If the system is in any prearm state, then the system will return to a disarmed state when the battery is disconnected and then reconnected.

    1994 ford explorer limited anti-theft

    Two tips:
    * If your anti-theft system is sounding (horn honking/lights flashing)you press the panic button on your key fob to shut it off.

    * If your anti-theft system is armed (but not triggered) it is disarmed when you unlock the door(s) using your unlock button on your keyfob, the key pad on the driver's door, or your key.

    Hope help with this. Good luck (remember rated this).
