There must be a connection problem from monitor to pc, check the pins to see if any are bent in the plug to the pc. If it is a seperate graphics card, check that it is seated correctly in the agp (brown) slot and not come loose. Try booting in safe mode (F8) on boot and select boot Windows in safe mode(this will run pc with normal vga driver and not the graphics driver), and see if it stays on, if it does it is a graphics card driver fault, so re install.

Can you try a different monitor? A friend's?
Or connect the monitor to another computer?
If this Maverick then you may need an updated driver.

Specification of part place in the heat sink of the acer al1716As lcd monitor power supply pcb,i cnnot recognized burnt already,is that IC or has 6 pin


Transistors are with just three pins, so what you are seeing there should be an ic and not a transistor.

It is ics that have numerous pins, transistor have just three legs(pnp) or (npn).

So what you see is an ic.

Take care.

My Acer AL1716As monitor simply does not come on. LED (red or green) is off as well. Should I have any part replaced or perhaps fix it myself? Thanks, Fernando!

Before you do anything else, disconnect the monitor from the computer, then try to turn it on and see if you get any life out of it, if you do then there is a problem with your video card or video cable. If you get nothing then you have to start working on the inside of the monitor.

If you will look online you can probably find a copy of the service manual that will help you tremendously.

Given your description the monitor is getting no power from the power supply. So after unplugging the monitor, the first place to check is the fuse in the internal power supply, you will need a multi-meter. If it is blown you will have to order a new one from Acer. If the fuse is good then the problem will lie with one of the micro switches on one of the circuit boards -- it is sending a false reading to the power supply and forcing it to turn off. This is where the service manual will be critical because there are so many differences between monitors I can't tell you where to go next if the fuse is good because there are just too many possibilities.

Monitor repeatedly flashes Acer logo and computer display in cycles

We had the same problem with the 17" we bought in Aug. Sent it back for repair. Acer sent it back without fixing the problem. Started doing it again in Nov. This time I called a supervisor and they sent me a new monitor. Well yesterday it started doing the same thing. You can fix it temp buy unplugging it and holding down the on-off switch for 30 seconds. Please let me know if you have a better fix.
