Incorporating a second monitor is a great Idea, I've used three to four on my workstations for many years. Setting up multiple monitors involves more than just hardware, the card manufacturer's software and operating system is involved. Since you didn't note the OS, I'll assume Win7. First, simply right click the desktop, and select "Screen Resolution" to see a page headed "Change the appearance of your displays," below which show be a graphic that shows both monitors with a number "1" and "2" on each. Arrange them by dragging and dropping them to reflect your physical arrangement. Then, select the fourth drop-down titled "Multiple" Displays" and select "Extend desktop onto this display," then click the "Apply" button followed by the "OK." button. If your hardware and drivers are set up properly, you should have everything working at this point. Your Nvidia software should have installed a control panel item that you can use to make tweaks to your system. You can also contact Nvidia technical support for more detailed, OS-specific assistance.
Get a hold of a PC desktop monitor and plug into the side video port. Start up the computer and if it happens with the external monitor, the problem is the video section on the motherboard, but if the same effect that happens with the LCD Screen on the Laptop and NOT with the Desktop monitor; the problem is the LCD screen on the laptop.
franh, Typical of a lcd/fpd monitor! There is nothing you or hundreds of others can do to repair it all by yourself. I have repaired 3 monitors and helped tutor 2 others on fixya with their monitors. All had same exact symptom as your monitor. I need you to do a simple test for me. With failed Acer monitor near to your Fully Booted PC with a known good desktop being displayed on back-up monitor, quickly swap out the monitor cables from the back of the PC. Keep touching the CTRL key on you keyboarb every 30-50 seconds to keep the PC from sending out sleep mode command to monitor while doing the reconnect of acer to your PC monitor output port. Make sure the Acer also is connected to a live wall outlet/power strip. Turn on the Acer and note what happens. If screen shows a sharp clear image for a second, then goes black, do the following. Get a bright flashlight and shine it on the screen from a distance of 1 or 2 inches and tell me if you can see the desktop display. get back to me with your observations. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aol.com.
