Question about Computer Monitors
I have the same model monitor that I think had the same problem. What may have happened here is a part inside the monitor is broken. If so, you need to send the monitor in for warrantee service, or failing that buy a new monitor or replace the LCD inverter module on the monitor.
Technically what happened to me when I had the issue was this: a set of powerful lights behind the LCD shine through it, allowing you to see the image. These must be driven by several inverters (called ballasts on your typical fluorescent-type light fixture). If the inverters fail (which is what happened in my case), no image. You can call acer and have one of their suppliers send you out a new inverter circuit for $80. The install is quick enough and it'll solve your problem. Or just buy a new monitor.

One of 2 possibilities come to mind.
1, The vga chord is loose on the back of the monitor.
2, Your resolution is set too high or low to be displayed.
The blinking light means that the monitor is either not getting or understanding a signal.
Hope this helps.
