Question about Acer AL2216W LCD Monitor

Open Question

Acer AL2216w has suddenly stopped working

I am running Vista, with a nvidia 8800 card. As of 15 minutes ago both of my displays (an Acer AL2216w and a LG L1710S) were working perfectly, with the Acer is my primary screen and LG as my secondary. I switched from dual display to single display (with Acer as primary still), as I have done many times before without any problem. The visible resolution decreased, even though according to the settings it was at the usual resolution. After restarting the computer, the screen doesn't turn on at all. My LG screen is still working fine, but when I try to either clone screen or dual view nothing at all happens, and the LG remains the primary and only display.

SOURCE: Won't turn off and cylces through colors

Hi. This evening, I had the exactly the same symptom. I found a way to fix it.

When you power up the screen, keep the power and auto buttons both pressed. That seems to reset the screen. After that when you open the menu, a small F appears on the left side of the contrast icon. Go to that red F with the arrows and press menu. Another menu will popup. Choose 'Burnin' and set it to off. That's all !

Note: do not try to change other settings, they depends of the harware...

SOURCE: Native resolution suddenly scrolls.

The native resolution for the Acer AL2216W is 1600X1200. It is acting correctly for the resolution you have set it to.

SOURCE: same problem, acer sucks imo

Similar problem with Acer AL2216W - sometimes DVI input don't work properly (but analog in works well in the same time) and I have blackness on panel - I just need to change resolution on my ATI video card for a moment and return to native 1680x1050 (resetting of the monitor?) and things go right. This is my 1st and last time when I bought Acer product. I just opened up and replaced few bulging capacitors (CapXon - known cheap ****) and I will never buy Acer again!!! It's simply ****!

Please verify that you are running your PC video card with native resolution of this monitor, 1680x1050 @60Hz for best picture for this monitor.
Unless you may have problem inside the monitor or the video card itself, so try this monitor on another PC also.

I have vertical red lines generated by my Nvidia 8800 GTS graphics card


Its a GPU problem.
It can be overcome by doing reflow technique.
You need to do following.
1. Uncover ur PC casing
2. Locate the nVIDIA PCI-E Card.
3. On the card, locate the power supply pin of GPU fan.
4. Remove the pin.
5. Switch on ur PC.
6. Still u may get scrambled display/wavy screen, but wait for 5 minutes.
7. Press reset button on ur PC.
8. Ur PC might work.
9. Switch it off.
10. Connect the power supply pin back as it is.
11. Power on ur PC.
thats all.

Removal of fan power, makes the GPU to get high heat, it a reflow technique.
Remember, not to touch the GPU portion (heat sink), as it may be in higher temperature.
Try this, it works most.

2nd monitor doesnt work either


Ensure your are running the monitors in dual mode still. Open your Nvidia Control Panel and click on "setup up multiple displays" Then on right panel you should see where to select your option on how to run the 2nd one. You might need a driver update from Nvidia, especially if you recently took an update from Microsoft.

Hope this helps

Nvidia geforce 8800 gts code 43 due to vista home premium


Well if you installed the correct drivers for your video card and have the proper power supply requirements, then the vertical lines you're getting most likely indicate that your video card is bad.

Try it in another computer if available, or get another video card.

your card is probably overheating. the alphadog editon has an extremly small cooling for the gpu. try cleaning it with a caned air spray and check the NVIDIA control panel to see the temp. of the GPU if the problem is solved try running a game benchmark to see if that works.
