You should try this monitor with another PC to find out if it is your PC problem or your monitor problem.

Acer Aspire 5536 only gives black screen when i connect power supply


  • Nothing is more annoying than a monitor that refuses to turn on. Make sure your Acer monitor is plugged in to a functioning outlet. If it's plugged into a power strip, try replacing it with a new one or moving the plug to a different outlet. Ensure that both ends of the power cable are plugged in firmly and securely, and that the connection to the monitor is not loose.
Cable Issues
  • Your Acer LCD monitor will usually accept DVI and VGA inputs. If you have an older computer, a VGA cable should work fine. If it doesn't have a VGA port, you'll need to obtain an inexpensive DVI to VGA adapter at your local computer store. A DVI cable, however, is compatible with most modern computers and offers superior picture quality over VGA. Make sure you're using the cable that's compatible with your system, and that you have the proper conversion adapter, if necessary.

Can i upgrade my old monitor to a new acer 19" Acer Monitor


Hi Ricky,
In most situations you won't need any special connections, as most LCD screens have the same VGA interface sockets and cables as your older screen.
Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
Best wishes,

Hi, I have a Princeton LCD17D flat screen monitor and the screen keeps going black after 20 seconds or so. I power up my PC and it turns on then black. If I turn it off and on again the same thing occurs....


It's getting power, it's just not getting signal from the data cable. The cord that connects to the monitor, (not the power) is typically the reason it is going into standby mode. This can also happen if your graphics card driver is missing on your operating system, but you said you tried the monitor on another machine, so I narrowing it down to most likely be the data cable. Try another cable.

The Acer Aspire L100 is a desktop computer powered by a special DC adapter and power cable. The computer's motherboard incorporates a fuse designed to prevent any power surges from damaging the computer. If the fuse burns out due to a power surge or for any other reason, the computer will no longer function. You can check the motherboard fuse for damage yourself, then take it to a trained technician for replacement if needed

Shut down the Acer Aspire L100 and turn the tower around.

Press the "On/Off" button on the front of the tower. If the computer will not boot and the fan does not turn on, the fuse may be burned out.

Unplug the power cord from the rear of the tower

Turn the tower on its side and remove the Phillips-head screws connecting the back panel to the Aspire L100's cabinet.

Pull out the motherboard assembly gently from the back of the cabinet. The internal fuse is located on the motherboard behind the DC power jack, which is to the right of the monitor jack

Let me know if this helped..

    I need the acer monitor drivers for windows seven al1706a


    As I'm sure you're aware Acer doesn't offer a specific driver for this monitor. However, any driver for your video card that offers a 1280 x 1024 screen resolution should work. What screen resolutions does your current driver offer? If you want to update your video driver download a newer video driver from the firm that made your video chip. You can find out what you've got by launching Device Manager. (click on the start button and type device manager into the search box) If you decide to update your video driver click on Display adapters entry in Device Manager and right click on the video chip entry that will emerge as a subgroup. Select update driver software from the choices displayed when you right click. Then tell it where the driver you've downloaded is located.

    I would try this monitor with another PC first to verify that it is not PC problem.
    Most common failures in the monitors are due to bad caps in the power supply/inverter board, we want to find out first if it is the monitor or the PC problem.

    I switch on my PC, ensuring that all cables, leads and power supplies are connected properly. The tower powers up no problems at all. I switch the screen on, the green led lights up, the screen is completely black. A blue box appears centrally on the screen with the text 'power saving mode'. The green led light turns amber and then the screen just goes black.

    Please don't suggest going to control panel, as I can't get that far.

    PLEASE PLEASE CAN ANYONE SUGGEST ANYTHING give me

    Monitor Acer Problem


    I agree it isn?t the monitor but I would suspect the video card you are connecting it to or the PC itself. Generally if a monitor doesn?t detect a video signal it will go into hibernation mode, typically displaying a no signal warning and changing the LED color from green to amber. When you start the computer is anything displaying at all? Are you sure the PC is powering up and booting?
