Question about Acer AL2216W LCD Monitor

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 ****!

More screen resolution


I have a solution to your problem, it is comprehensively explained in my published guide entitled How to set your Desktop Screen Resolution?
Hope this enables you to increase your resolution for a better picture.

If you are still unable to do so, then install the latest driver for your graphics card, either Nvidia or ATI

Thanks

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 think I may have fixed it but I haven't rebooted my computer yet. I uninstalled the latest ATI driver version 9.3 and then installed an older driver version 7.3. Monitor now turns on and off and gets signal every time so far. I'll post back if it the problem comes back after I reboot.
