    My husband read your reply and said the RAM was seated into the slot properly but that isn't the problem but thank you for trying to help.

    I want to thank all the people who tried to help my husband with his monitor problem. He sent it off to Texas to his "tecky" brother-in-law. He said he bought the correct ram but the motherboard went out for some reason. He is sending it back to us soon. Again, thanks!

Make sure that the new RAM is fully seated into the slot. The snap clips on the side will automatically lock in when the ram is fully inserted.

My Acer AL2416W is showing a tint of pink in all images I try to display, I have changed the cables with no change. I have taken the monitor to a new computer and it works fine ( no pink at all ). Why is...


The problem is in your old computer, the video graphics card is faulty, you mentioned the monitor was hooked up to the new computer and worked fine.

My TW191D monitor went blank with a flashing green light. I changed the cable nothing. I tried the monitor on 2 other computers and it work fine. It still will not work my computer.


Since it works with other PC then the problem is in your PC, it can be video card, RAMs. Try reseating the RAM and teh video card. iT can be *********** board also. Need more troubleshooting in your PC.

Monitor doesn't display any information. All hookups are in tact.


While it is still power on, unplug it from the video port of your computer. Can you see anything on the monitor? If so, the problem is with your computer. You need to troubleshoot. First try the monitor on another computer and verify that it's working fine. If it's not, then ask for repair and if it would cost some around $200, I don't recommend, you'll get a bigger and better new monitor for $200.

If you think there's nothing wrong with the printer and is tested ok, then start working with your computer, first try with another monitor and boot up, probably it shouldn't work, if it does, then the cable you were connecting the other monitor must be the faulty.

The best thing you can do with a dead video computer is to re-seat the Rams, Power connectors and Bios battery. First remove the Ram/s and boot again, you'll hear the beeping, means there's no ram installed. After cleaning the ram, again install it/ (if there are multiple rams, install only one), now boot again. same problem, try again with the other ram.
If you see no changes while working with the rams, then it must be the bios or the video card itself. If you have a spare graphics card, try it or if you don't have one, then the only solution is to replace the motherboard.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Tried installing samsung syncmaster monitor and get and error message check signal cable dialgoue and can't do anything, previous monitor works fine


Does the new monitor work correctly when installed to some other computer (notebook or desktop) ? If it, you have a "dud" that should be replaced, under warranty.

Try changing the data-cable between the monitor and your computer.

Monitor will not work after changing ram, what's wrong?


Open the computer case back up, after unplugging it. Take new RAM out. Check ALL cable connections inside, also take video card out and reseat it back into it's slot. Now power on computer. If video works then suspect bad RAM. Turn pc back off, unplug, reinstall new RAM, repolace case, but be certain No cable was accidently bumped or jarred aloose. before replacing case, plug pc back in and power on, if it still will not come on, then you have a bad RAM stick. Sned it back for a replacement. I have had a few of these over the years, I hope this helps, but let me know.

LaCie Photo20visionII monitor


Computer seems fine, Cable changed. but still the same. This is to expected, the monitor mounted controls are directed to monitor not part of the data input. Thus suggests a board failure in the Monitor. Just to prove the point if you have the monitor driver installed delete it and run as generic monitor. If things change reinstall the dedicated driver Though I suspect this is a monitor failure not computer related.
