It may have unstable DC in the power supply or bad logic board. Look for bad caps first in the power supply and the logic board.

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

lower your resolution on your computer. Sounds like a resolution conflict there somewhere. Also try reloading your video card drivers.

Well, my monitor is flashin non stop its been a couple of days or more, it appears "auto config please wait" and it keeps appearing and never stop! what do i do? my monitor is an AOC


It is a strong possibility that your Display settings in Windows is set to a refresh rate that is not compatible with your monitor. Usually setting it to 60Hz would be a compatible setting for most. Hopefully this works.

I keep getting an ''Auto Config Please Wait'' sign popping up non stop in a grey box on the center of my screen. How do I stop it?????


once you are online, go to the website for the monitor, and download the latest drivers. if that doesn't help, go to computer makers site, and do same thing. Seems the driver you need is absent from operating system.

Auto Config Please Wait message


Each monitor has a menu option. Find out with your manual how to access your menu options for your specific model and in there is an option to display messages or warnings. You can turn it off there.
