Acer produces a number of LCD computer monitors. Acer's monitors range from 17 inches to 27 inches. Some monitors offer wide-screen viewing, embedded speakers, high-definition visuals, and various display connection ports. Acer computer monitor problems include common issues such as dead pixels, error messages, and blank screens caused by incorrect connections. Some reviewers have also detected image problems with DVD playback on some models.
"Input Not Supported" Error Message Acer computer monitors such as the G24 may issue an "Input Not Supported" error message when users set the display resolution too high. The G24's maximum display resolution is 1920x1200 with a 60Hz refresh rate. Maximum resolutions vary according to the specific monitor model and according to the capabilities of the computer's video card. b> "Input Out of Range" b> Some Acer computer monitors may report an "Input Out of Range" error message due to incorrectly set monitor refresh rates. Much like the display resolution, each monitor also has specific monitor refresh rates with which it is compatible. Blank Screen or "No Signal" Error b> Like other monitors, Acer computer monitors feature color-coded power indicator lights. If the power indicator light shows green, the contrast or brightness levels may be set too low and should be adjusted via the OnScreen Display. If this does not rid the monitor of a black screen, the monitor may be experiencing hardware failure. The "No Signal" or "Check Cable message" may indicate a problem with the monitor's cable connection with the video card. This error may also appear on a blank screen backdrop if the monitor is plugged into the incorrect port on the computer or if the computer is frozen and needs to be rebooted. Faulty power cords or outlets may cause the screen to be black and to show no power indicator color. b> Image Issues b> Some review sites such as CNET have reported problems with streaking and ghosting during DVD playback on some Acer computer monitors such as the AL1931. (A "ghost" is an identical offset image as the primary or desired image.) Unstable or unclear image issues may be caused by incorrectly programmed VGA timings or incorrectly installed monitor drivers. b> Dead Pixels b> Dead pixels and sub-pixels can cause a variety of display enjoyment problems. Acer will only accept returns on LCD computer monitors that have "more than four (4) defective pixels per million pixels." Further, the central area of the monitor may have no more than one defective pixel. Acer does not differentiate in warranty terms between pixels and sub-pixels. Hope this helps.
If you have the acer logo come up on the screen press F10 located bottom right or what ever number is assigned to reload your operational system, and do a clean install, warning all personal data will be lost.
two things you can do, first right click on your windows screen and look for "settings" this will open a dialog box where you can set the screen resolution. Set it lower and see if your screen is now filled. if that doesn't work go into the monitor setup (buttons on the bottom or side of the monitor) and try to set the verticle and horizontal size, since its only 3/4 of an inch you should be able to stretch the screen to fill up the space.
i just finished repairing a 20 inch acer monitor that had the same issue.... you have to take it apart and examine the power supply side of the monitor. there are capacitors that go bad on that board. you can tell be feeling the tops of them... the feel rounded. replace the capacitors and put it back together and it will work fine
To my knowledge, it is not the zoom that has to be adjusted but rather the horizontal width, zoom would expand all (to, bottom & both sides) whereas your only concern are the two sides.
Should the horizontal width not fully expand, then there is an internal problem with the horizontal deflection circuitry which could either be the yoke, a capacitor or shunt diodes. In certain instances, a below normal voltage at the mains or the internal power supply could also cause this.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
boot to safe-mode. (f8 pressed prior to windows starts) choose "safe mode" in this advanced boot menu. If the screen displays in this mode, it's a driver issue. If it fails, it's the screen or the vid card. Swap screens (CRT preferred) if it works vid card is good, screen is bad. If it fails you must use a known good vid card to isolate the point of failure
I have 2 acer AL2016W's and have the same problem. The earlier ones with the VGA only are the problem from what I can see, they just don't play nicely with the video card for some reason.
First, on your main monitor, click "Show displays in menu bar" on your monitor control panel. This will let you set the resolution for each monitor from the main one, click on the little monitor icon on the top right screen to do this.
If that doesn't work try this:
Connect one acer as the main monitor and one crappy vga crt monitor as the second.
Set mirrored desktop in the system preferences so that the crappy CRT is displaying the exact same resolution as the acer. (1680x1050 59.9Hz)
Disable mirrored desktop. You should now have an acer and a crappy CRT both running 1680x1050 in extended desktop mode.
Shut down, reconnect the acer in place of the crappy CRT.
This should "trick" your video card into having the right resolution, otherwise you'll just get the stupid "input not supported" screen, with no ability to auto configure or use any of the built in controls.
