Question about Acer P205H Widescreen LCD Monitor

Open Question

Acer P205H I am using the monitor as external for my laptop gaming computer. This is the second monitor I have tried. I returned the first one because it developed a flicker of horizontal lines going from the top to bottom of the screen. I initially thought that it was because there are 2 computers side by side but when I moved my computer to the other room I still had the problem. Now this second monitor is developing the same problem. Another strange thing is happening. When I set up this monitor it automatically adjusted for the type of graphics used. IE Older computer games. The first monitor never did that. Now this one has stopped doing it and is starting to get the same flicker.

Your problem is not the drivers or hardware it is in your settings. Goto windows hardware settings for your monitor. Look down where it says refresh rate. Write that number down then go to the manufactures web site. Enter in your favorite search engine your monitor model and to to the manufactures site. Check to see what they recomend as your optimum and maximum refresh rates. Pay attention to the screen size also this plays a huge role in performance and out of sink refresh rates. Just out of coureosity are you overclocking your cpu or ram?

Ok we must remember when we setup any device on our PC, one of the many non PnP devices is and LCD Monitor, your PC should always be shutdown before installing a new Monitor. If you did not do this you could have damaged the I/O port on your PC. Not a definite, but possible! When you plug up a monitor or any serial cable while the PC is still on, it is of a low voltage which can casue some issues for you! Sounds like this one is yours!

Hi
What do the power button lights do when there is a signal to the monitor and when it has a signal taken away from it ??
I believe your power boards have failed capacitors and need to be updated. Seems they used some crappy ones in some of these models.
I fix quite a few through ebay and that is a common problem, sorry to say.

Unless you monitor is HDMI capable I don't think it is possible without some sort of adapter.

Cannot view some webpages with acer p205h on ubuntu


This is unlikely to be a monitor issue, more likely a browser issue.
Please ensure you have the latest version of Ubuntu, Firefox and/or Google Chrome.
If this does not solve it, let us know which web pages you're having trouble with so we can take a look.

My computer has reand black lines all over


To determine if the video card or the LCD screen is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop, power up the external monitor first the boot up your laptop. The video data will automatically divert to the external monitor. If the image on the external monitor is normal the the fault is in the LCD screen.
Either way, I suggest you return your laptop to the supplier because it should be still under warranty. If you try to fix it yourself you could void your warranty.

I have my acer p205h 20 inch monitor hooked up to my tobshiba laptop and it works great except it will not go into sleep mode when laptop goes into sleep mode the monitor goes to there is not signal check...


Unfortunately, this is a standard problem, as when your laptop goes into sleep mode, it shuts off power to the secondary monitor, without giving it the signal to go into sleep mode. You could try digging around your settings, but most likely you'll just need to turn off the monitor when you're not using it.

Depending upon the video port/s you have on the graphics card, you need to connector one video cable, either the DVI or the 15pin DSub to the monitor.
