Not working even after the reset. When I am on Facebook, I don't see the blue background behind comments. I just see it completely white same as the background! And when I look at slightly lighter tint of black than completely black, for example when on YT you look the the bar on the left showing your subscribed channels, I see it a little bit reddish.

After I press the auto button and choose any of the things and confirm, it says auto config and does some things with the monitor. During the while I can see the colors perfectly. But after it finishes, it's back! Same for the Reset button. And oh yes, do you see the shadowed background behind this text? I just DONT! I see it completely white...

Why does it take so long to see my desktop icons when I power on my Acer AL1717 monitor?

bsellers, Tell me in "seconds", "minutes", how long is "so long". Do you even see the "boot screen" pop-up when booting the pc? You should see that first if lcd monitor is turned on first. Are you running a Windows OS? Will a "known-good" VGA monitor work ok when connected to your PC?? Will your AL1717 do same thing when connected to different "known-good" PC?? Did you even look at the "date of manufacture" on the rear of your monitor? Retrevo .com lists 1717 as time to retire??? Was your unit produced in "06" or "07"?? Let me know results of doing some simple "swap-out" tests. 12fixlouie

Normally, when the monitor is switched on, a blue screen is shown momentarily, with 'acer' right in the middle, before it shows the image that the computer is sending. But now, the screen does not show...

It sounds like either a bad signal input , possibly from a loose plug on the cable from the PC or bent pins on the plug / the video graphics card in the PC/ or the settings on the monitor need adjustment. Use the OSD (On Screen Display)
First check to make sure both ends of the cable from the PC to the monitor are not damaged and are seated good & tight.
If those are fine then unplug both cables from the monitor & leave unplugged for 10 minutes or so to see if the screen has an automatic reset.
If that does not work then use the monitors OSD (On Screen Display) to adjust to default settings. If that does not work, plug the monitor into another known good PC.This will tell you right then if its the monitor or "Your" PC.
Here is your manual if needed

My acer al1717 just started having resolution

This is 2005 model year, it is due time to check for capacitors with bulging top/seal, leakage in the power supply. See example of failed monitors as a guide here so you know what to look for:

Need to turn off internal audio on flat screen to use headset


When you plug in a headset or mic into the bottom or the side of the monitor, this should automaticly disable the internal speakers on the monitor.

Acer AL1717 moniter hissing and goes black

Include me in the people burnt (no pun intended) by crappy quality Acer monitors. Will never buy their stuff again. Ironically, this infrequently used external monitor burnt out overnight, just a few hours after I had actually checked out and decided to buy an Acer Windows 8 15.6" i5 laptop. Definitely not buying Acer again.

Acer Monitor AL1917 W

When you unplug the data cable from the PC, you should usually get a 'no signal' message from the screen itself.

Other LCDs (like in this case), you have to plug it in and turn it one slightly before your PC goes on, so it can auto-adjust to the resolution your PC has.
