It is flickering may be caused by unstable DC power due to bad DC filter caps, that will be he first palce to check.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed ACER monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

We have had this monitor for about a year and it just started flickering with dark colours. How can we fix it?


If it is less than one year, then contact ACER, and exercise the "warranty" to get it repaired/replaced at _minimal_ cost to you.

check the data cables.also check if there are power fluctuations. if you do have power fluctuations, try buying a power stabilizer or no-break. if you're under warranty coverage, ask for a replacement (this is the most simple way), if not do what i told you before. the data cables may be malfunctioning. also check your video board. try to plug your monitor into another computer. if the problem persists with a different machine, then the cause is definitively in the monitor.

Back ground screen flickering


If it flicker continually that may well be either the video card (hopefully not part of the motherboard) or the monitor. Your best bet is to tt on someone else's machine. If it does not flicker then you probably have a bad (or soon to be very bad) video card. If, your video card is built into your machine, don't give up....you can buy a video card and install it....they are not expensive if you are not a big time gamer. Price ranges are anywhere from $8-20 if you are a normal PC user. Pricewatch.com can give you some insight. You will need to know what type of slot you have available....presumably AGP (but PCI, if you have an open slot on the motherboard, will also work....AGP is faster.)
