Question about Acer AL1716 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor or pcu problem

While working on the computer the screen goes white or gray and sometimes with lines through it. I move the mouse and nothing happens. I even press the menu button the the monitor and can see the menu but nothing else. I hooked the monitor up to my laptop and it worked fine but when it is hooked up to the original tower after a while of being on the computer it goes out again. I have to reboot the computer to get the screen back to normal. Is this a problem with the screen or something in the tower. I uninstalled the video card and monitor and reinstalled it and it did the same thing. Please help, what could the problem be?

It appears that your graphics card is defective. If the monitor works on your laptop and reinserting the graphics card did not help, I would suspect the card itself.

Ghosting


I know exactly what your talking about. I've seen in many times. It' happens too in CRT monitors as well as LCD. It could ALTHOUGH be as simple as a bad cable catching interference. Most likely though, it sounds like a bad LCD driver board or video board. If you have warranty, call it in. Otherwise see if it lessens with adjustments of contrast and brightness up and down. This directly affect the driver board power and can improve it enough to be tolerable again.

MONITOR PROBLEM


This may not be a Monitor problem. So if you can try to get to test monitor on another computer. Check carefully the data cable to ensure there are no bent pins. If it turnout to be a monitor problem then at only 6 months -Acer should replace it. If the monitor works - you should have the graphics card on the computer checked out. If you feel you can do this - and you can- basic checks come back as another request.
