Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

LCD and Gaming

I just bought an Acer LCD monitor and noticed that the frame rate for my Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 has gone down from 30 fps to 20 fps. I have the monitor connected to my pc with the 15 pin D connector cable. Would using the DVI connector make any difference? If not, what can I do to improve the frame rate?

Monitor should not have anything to do with frame rate.

If you have increased the resolution of your video card because the 19" is larger than what you had before, that could cause a frame rate issue.

Something else got installed, that is slowing down your machine...


Connect the old monitor and what is the outcome? Does the frame rate improve again?

Go into your video adapter settings and make sure that VSync is on, or that your refresh rate is equal to the max FPS your monitor supports.

If my monitor is 60hz, then I can only support up to 60FPS, and my refresh rate should be 60hz.

It says cable not connected

I would suggest a bit of troubleshooting, since it could be an issue with your graphics card/video adapter, or also the panel itself.
First of all, if the screen goes dark, does the unit still remained powered up? (power indicator lit, etc)
If so, use a bright flashlight to shine on the screen. If it is the backlight, then you should see be able to your display, but it will be very dark (the backlight, as the name suggests, illuminates the screen from behind, which makes the rest of it visible). Sometimes the backlights can be expensive, but you never know.
If that doesn't work, I would suggest hooking it up to another PC. If the problem is with the monitor, it should do the same thing when connected to another computer. If it doesn't you may have an issue with your video card.
One last thing to note: some Acer LCD's carry 3 years limited warranty on them; a warranty would most likely cover this kind of issue. I don't know when or where you bought this, but you might want to do a little research; if it still has a warranty in force, then they will repair/replace and you would only have to pay shipping.

Synchmaster 913 The unit displays 'Not Optimum Mode 1280 x 1024 60hz' after being run to approx 1 hour

Hello. That message appears when the video signal from the computer exceeds the monitor's ability to display it. If the sync is set too high(i.e. max sync on the monitor is 60 Hertz at that resolution), you will get that message. Check the video settings in control panel--("appearance and themes" in XP), go to the "advanced" tab and look at the refresh rate. Most computer video cards are able to far exceed a monitor's display ability. Don't exceed 60 Hertz--check the users guide for specs--the lower resolutions can have higher refresh rates(useful in games) Sometimes, a little lower video quality can yield a big performance difference in the display because the screen can update itself faster. (I use a radio control flight simulator pgm that is heavy on video ability).---Hope I was of assistance!---Rick

Acer AL1715 17" LCD Monitor

Certain versions of the Acer AL1715 monitor had a problem with the VGA socket. Specifically, the plastic case around the socket was not wide enough. The plastic interfered with the plug and so the plug did not seat properly. I fixed several of these monitors by shaving off some of the plastic with a dremel mototool. A hand file would probably work as well. You have to remove the plastic back to do the job.
