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.

My Acer mnitor won't stay on. The power cord works, when I unplug it from the black power box, hte light that indicates the power supply is working comes on and stays on. However when I plug into the


It is Windows 10.
I have reverted my machine back to Windows 8.1 and its working perfectly.
As long as you haven't had Windows 10 on your machine for 30 days you can revert back to Windows 8.1.
First of all open Settings and click Update and Recovery

Now in Update and Recovery window click on Recovery option. This will open a list of 3 options on the right hand side. You need to look for "Go back to a previous version of Windows" option. To start the process, click Get Started button under this option. It will ask you to plug in your charger before allowing you to continue.
Make sure your battery is fully charged, because before you press the get started button you need to place the cursor over the button and plug in the charger.
Once the screen goes black press the keypad which should then click the button.
Wait a few seconds and then unplug the charger.
All being well the process will now continue without the charger plugged in.
Once you get to the restart screen it should be safe to plug in the charger and you should then still have a screen you can see.
Hope this helps.

My X241w until recently required about 10 or more power ups before it would stay on without shutting itself off. As I was getting ready to replace it I tried setting the resolution to 1980x1080 in...


It may have a lot of dying caps as shown in my pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/ACER%20X241W/

More damage will be done if the caps get real bad.
The size of this monitor is big but I find the picture quality is not too good.
