Question about Acer AL1714 17" LCD Monitor
Hi! Looks like the monitor is in stressed and can't stand long time use. Replacing these parts plus labor is like buying a new one for it will take time and the availability of the parts. I strongly suggest that you buy a new one which can cost you less. HOpe this helps and thank you for using FIxYa!

It must be the Inverter Board defect. If you know how to check the capacitors and the coil, you can try replacing them or refresh (solder) them. Open the monitor case and power on the monitor, now listen whether you hear tick tick sound or not, if you hear tick sound, then it's the "transformer" (small transformer), I would recommend replacing the whole inverter unit. If you can find the similar transformer, you can give a try, but it's better to replace the whole board than replacing the transformer as it'll cost only a little less than the whole board.
Check all the capacitors and replace them with the correct unit (micro farad). You can simply identify the defective capacitors when you look, it might have bulged out or it might have exploded.
The board should look similar to the above (this is for AL1916WA).
If you need further help, let me know.
Thanks for using FixYa.

It is the main logic board of the monitor itself, or worse yet the actual display. It is tough to say for sure, but the repair is going to be very costly, you can get a new 17 inch monitor for less than $100.... you are going to want to replace this monitor in my opinion, it is not worth the repair. You can take it apart and look for obvious damage such as blown capacitors... But my bet is you won't find anything.
Let me know
