Question about Acer X193W LCD Monitor

Open Question

Monitor blinks and goes black randomly..

Hello, I've recently bought a new computer, about three weeks ago or something like that.

Here's the specs:
Operating System: Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1
System Manufacturer: Acer
System Model: Aspire M5640
Processor: Intel Core Duo 2.40 GHz
Memory (RAM): 3 GB
System-type: 32-bit operating system
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GS
Storage: 500 GB
Monitor: Acer x193w

The problem is, is that my monitor will randomly go black. The monitor will stay on, as the little blue light stays on, but the only way I can get the picture back is by shutting the monitor off and turning it back on. I've also noticed that it sometimes blinks and when it blinks it seems to make the screen a *** bit darker, not much, barely noticeable, heck maybe I'm just dreaming... I've tried pushing in the power cord more, doesn't help. I've tried unplugged the power cord and plugging it back in, doesn't help. I've tried making sure the connection from CPU to the monitor is correct and hasn't seemed to help.. Possibly something is loose because when I type, my desk moves, thus my monitor moves, so something is loose somewhere.

  • Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.
  • Seven blinks - High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33kV and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits.

Screen appears on for three seconds then goes black


Try the monitor on another computer that you know works, If it works on another computer then that means you have no video output on the original computer and you'll need to reseat the memory on that computer.

If you get the same response on another computer, then that means the monitor is bad and you'll need to replace it.

it does not sound like it is a computer problem, but a monitor problem. you need a new monitor because last i checked, those monitors either cannot be repaired or the cost exceeds that of a new monitor. sorry.

Samsung monitor randomly flashes black


> brand-new out-of-the-box

Presumably, it has a "warranty".

So, take it back to where you bought it, and demonstrate the problem to them, and make them repair/replace it, under warranty.
