Question about Acer AL1916B 19" LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Monitor dims for one account, not the other

I have a 3 month old Acer aspire and AL1916 monitor. As of last nite, whenever I switch from my GF's user account to my own, the screen dims dramatically. So much so that I can hardly read anything on it. Once I log off of my account and back into hers, the screen comes back at normal brightness. Then, going back to my user account, the screen dims again. What can I do to fix this? Thank you for any help you can give me.

I would first contact the GF administrator and ask them if they've heard of this before. Then I would contact Acer.

I have an acer aspire e3-111-c2kg. It is about 2 months old and when I switched it on today it just has a black screen and won't load


Hi there
Firstly, don't do anything drastic that would void the warranty since it is only 2 months old.
One of the possibilities is that it has been switched to external monitor only. <Fn> + <F5> is a display toggle which switches the display output between the built-in screen, an external monitor (if connected) and both. Try this first.
You can get a full user manual here, if you haven't got one with the machine.

How to change monitor aspect ratio for acer AL1916


The aspect ratio is expressed as two numbers separated by a colon (x:y). and they actually represent the relation between width and height of (in your case) your monitor.

Did you mean to change the resolution of your monitor? Could you please explain your problem in more detail? What is it exactly you want to achieve?

Screen sometimes lights up but mostly stays dim


You have a bad connection on the LCD ribbon, or a cracked LCD ribbon, or the Inverter is intermittently faulting, the backlight/circuit is faulting. It is hardly ever the switch....but it is under the end of the screen look for a tiny black stick.

Black screen on Acer 5100, but will work with external monitor


It sounds like the control board or cable for the LCD may be damaged. If you're still under warranty, you'll need to send it back to Acer to be repaired.

You're going to have to provide more info than that.

What were you doing when it happened? What are you typically doing when it happens? Have you checked your cables? Power connection?

As it stands, your inquiry will not receive much of a useful solution for you unless you let us know these things.

And don't rate me poorly for letting you know this. I'm here to help you. You have to HELP US help you.

Screen goes dim under different user


could be an issue of his resolution and refresh rate settings are close to being out of range for the monitor. Try lowering these settings to get better performance.

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.
