[u][b]LCD Monitor Shadow Effect[/b][/u]
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this very simple. No software or hard ware changes required.
The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise.
[u][b]Solution: [/b][/u]Keep the two cables - (power cable and moitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
Thank you.

We have had this monitor for about a year and it just started flickering with dark colours. How can we fix it?


If it is less than one year, then contact ACER, and exercise the "warranty" to get it repaired/replaced at _minimal_ cost to you.

I bought an LCD Monitor Model AL1916W,Acer. It was working good and for my job it was excellent.However, yesterday without any other problem the screen went to white.Power button went red.I closed and open...


christidis d, If AL1916W has white screen when connected to a "known-good" pc, then the units "switch-mode-power-supply" has gone bad. Most monitors have +5 volts and +12volts dc to power up the electronics. +12v for the inverter circuit which lights-up the 2 cold cathode fluorescent lamps, and +5v for the vga to lcd panel digital signal processing board. One or both of dc rails may be out of regulation and or a bit "noisey" due to failed "electrolytic filter capacitors" on the SMPS board. Let me know the brand name of the capacitors you find on the SMPS board. What is the "date of manufacture" on rear of monitor?

Grey bands and shadowing


Uninstall the video driver from the Computer, restart the Computer then reinstall it. Furthermore, check for any updates for the video drivers.

You may also connect the monitor to any other normally functioning Computer to check if the lines remain there.

If it's so then the monitor requires servicing.

Black screen after a year of use


Sine a flashlight on the screen and check for a dim image. If you see a dim image the back light needs to be replaced. After doing that you will want to try using another monitor cable and see if that helps. If it doesn't with the computer on and the monitor on disconnect the cable from the computer. If the monitor shows a no signal error the graphics card needs to be replaced.

Acer Monitor


I have no idea about the game connection, don't add to many questions to this, as you can research that stuff yourself as you are now a expert in your own eyes. There is a driver for that monitor located on the Acer website and they offer a 3 year warrenty on the monitor. I doubt the driver will fix your issue, but it is at least worth a shot.
If what you say is true, then it looks like to me you've tried just about everything that can be tried and I would lean toward explaining to Acer why you need a replacement monitor.

Input not supported


This is a communication issue starting with your docking station. Sometimes updated drivers are neede to insure that a device works with all devices between your pc and your laptop. Check on Dells website to see if there is an updated driver. In additon you may want to run the cd that came with your monitor, they are always shipped with a cd with drivers on them!
