Question about Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Acer Monitor boots up w/computer then "no signal"

I disconnected my Acer monitor from my desk top and attached it to my laptop so I could have a bigger screen to work from. When I went to reconnect it back to my desk top, it would start up, the computer would boot up and the monitor would get as far as the Windows screen that appears right before the computer is fully booted, and then all of a sudden the monitor goes black and the "no signal" message comes on and it eventually goes to sleep. If there is something wrong with it recognizing the desk top, why would it go through all the boot up steps and then decide it doesn't recognize the desk top anymore? What can I do besides get a new computer?

You must have disconnected it while the pc was running.damage can occur while doing this as can a keyboard (they are not like USB devices that can be plugged and unplugged while "hot".)

Sounds as though you have a backlight issue. How old is the monitor?
The keyhole with the lock sign is for a security lock to lock the monitor to a desk so it cannot be stolen.

Screen comes on says Acer then No Signal, and goes out. if shut power off and then back on get same result.


This means the monitor believes it's not connected to the computer. Verify the cables first of all. Then try booting in safe mode (F8 key at PC startup) in order to verify that the PC is sending data to the proper video port (you might have a dual VGA / Digital output, for example, and the monitor might be connected to the wrong PC port). Quite often, a "bad signal" will be the same of "no signal"; and you can have a bad signal if the monitor resolution on the PC is set too high. This could happen if you installed a high-resolution capable monitor, and then replaced it with a not-completely-plug-and-play, lower resolution one. The PC would keep sending hi-res signals to a monitor which can neither interpret them, nor tell the PC "please slow down". To check this last possibility, reboot your computer while the monitor is ON. When PCs reboot, they usually drop back to standard VGA signaling, which all monitors understand. If the monitor abruptly comes to life and displays a boot screen, then goes No Signal again after several seconds, you've got a resolution issue; get in Safe Mode with F8 key at boot, and modify the screen properties (right-mouse button on the desktop, then Properties).

If everything else fails, try also connecting the monitor to another PC or laptop, to see if it works there.

Emachine destop not recognising acer lcd monitor


It sounds more like the computer isn't starting up. The "no signal" message is coming from the monitor itself to tell you it's on but there's nothing coming in to display. Normally no special drivers are required for the monitor, and you'd see at least the computer maker's splash screen and BIOS messages if the computer was starting up properly.

You'll need to determine what is keeping the computer from starting up. Make sure it's getting AC power and that the power light comes on when you press the front panel power button. You may need a power supply. If the computer comes on but doesn't boot you may have memory problems or trouble with the motherboard. But your monitor is working properly.

Why do I get a "No Signal" on my Acer x193w monitor?


sounds like a video card issue.  Check the screen on another computer.  If it is doing the same thing, it is the monitor.  If it doesn't, then you have a video card issue

For DVI you need to probably upgrade your cheap graphics card, something not that expensive would be a ATI Radeon HD2400 Pro, it'll do. May want to check what pwer supply maybe required on your PC.
