Question about Acer AL2216W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor works during boot-up but not in Windows

I recently had to reformat my primary harddrive and re-install everything. Now I can't seem to use my AL2216W in Windows. The system has been set up to use a two monitor display system and the secondary monitor is functioning properly but as of yet, I have been unable to get it to use the primary (the Acer). It comes up during the initial boot sequence but turns off as soon as windows loads. I've installed the latest drivers for my Radeon x1650 card and for the monitor and the hardware setup is unchanged from before the re-install.

Did you install the ATI catalyst software?  You will have to check a box that says active monitor on your graphics console for the appropriate monitors.

    i have aspire 5315 using windows ultimate 7 64bit. Almost same prob. The monitor works during boot-up then goes black. however. if i connect an external monitor then the notebook screen comes back on and it often stays on even after i disconnect the external. it continues working until i reboot. I have no driver for it and believe this is the prob. but it seems to me that if it will work when i connect the external (thus causing it to load the ext. monitor driver, i guess) then there should be some way to make these setting permanent until a driver does come out. this frustrating because i really like this os,

Monitor white screen


Hi,

White screens are caused by one of two things, either we have a bad power supply or a blown fuse on the lcd panel. To check the power supply section you can go to the site: www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm U can see pictures of what to look for. If you see any that look like the parts in the pictures replace them.

I hope this has been helpful

Good Luck & Thanks,

Had to reformat the harddrive, installed windows XP pro and am not receiving a signal to monitor. Do I need to re-istall a monitor driver


Usually reformatting would include the drivers for the monitor. Do you have a graphic card in this PC?

Due to an incomplete download my screen is now blank.


I think it maybe something going on with the computer and not the monitor itself. As you turn on your computer keep pressing the F8 key and it will come to a boot menu. Choose safe mode and let it boot up. If you can get into safe mode then that means its something that is starting up that is affecting the operating system. If you get into safe mode, go into system restore and choose the last date that the computer was working correctly and then let the system reboot. Hopefully it will go back into windows all the way. If you can't get into safe mode then at that point try another known good working monitor on the computer and see if you can reboot into windows. If you can get into windows then the monitor is bad. If you still can't get into windows then that means your original monitor is good and that its a problem with the opeating system and that means you'll have to restore it back to factory defaults. Corrupt system files will cause windows not to boot up.

Benq 19" monitor not working every time when computer started


Check your connections and make sure they are tight, and there are no bent pins. If everything seems ok, you might want to try plugging this monitor into a different computer or plug a different
monitor into yours to determine whether it's the monitor, the video card, or maybe the driver (doubtful on this as you state it seems to be bad somethimes on boot).

Iiyama Pro 452 clicking sound during start-up


Your CRT Monitor will fail soon. The clicking sound is coming from your CRT's power circuit.

Make plans now to replace it. This problem is known to be a fire hazard in some cases. So, better safe than sorry.

Sorry for the bad news.

Hope this was helpful.

Mag monitor doesn't display bios post


I have no experience with the DVI links because such technology is still unavailable here in Argentina. We have DVI video cards but finding a suitable DVI monitor is another (long) story.
I think that your card (that has 2 DVI ports) is initializing one port first (the primary one) and then, when windows starts, it initializes the other and outputs video from both ports.
Try connecting the monitor in the other DVI port.
If your card has a VGA output, the VGA gets initialized first.

No driver appearing in Vista


Sorry this is late but:

Unplug the monitor from the PC and then boot.
after you hear the windows starting sound wait for it to load everything up (say 1 min) and plug in the monitor

Windows then plays the "i have found an unknown device" sound and begins to search for drivers

Wait 5 min for it to do this and then shut down the computer with the power button.
Re boot

Monitor should work.

Note: you must be connected to the net for this to work.
