If the displayed logo is good, but windows is not, it suggests a problem with the windows graphic driver or windows itself. In the early stage of boot, it uses a graphic display from the BIOS. This changes to the Windows display as it gets on its feet. If you have Knoppix or some bootable CD/DVD, try that. Then you will know if it is Software or hardware.

Sounds like the backlight or inverter might need replaced. It's pretty common on LCD monitors. It's best to call a local repair shop to do that unless you know what you're doing.

Hi...there,
It's turns blue to power safe mode (yellow) it's prevent futher damaged to your monitor. It's seems you got a busted backlight inverter. Need to replaced a new one...Since you only got it for a few months, send it back to Acer for a replacement of a new backlight inverter... Have a nice day!

Acer LCD Monitor only displays "acer" logo


You are correct, it could be a power surge that has caused it.

Try this..
Unplug the monitor from the wall.
Remove all the video connections at the monitor end.
Wait 10 minutes then plug the monitor back into the wall (do not connect the video leads)

Turn it on and see if it goes past the ACER logo now. If so, replace the video cables and try the computer.
If not, then one of these will apply and a tech will be required..
  1. The internal bios has been corrupted.
  2. The power supply inside the monitor may have issues preventing the video board from starting correctly. This could be as simple as a few failing capacitors.
Number 2 is the most likely cause with an Acer monitor though. Any local tech will be able to correct it fairly cheaply, but phone around for quotes..they can vary a lot.

My monitor turns itself off


If it's only a few months old then send it back under warranty.
The fault you have is the inverter circuit.

Hope that helps. =)
