    My monitor started getting blurry, so I hit autoconfig. Then it was ok, but every time I turn it on now it runs autoconfig! Of course, I have to press the auto-button about five times before it gets the correct setting.

    How do I stop auto-config from appearing every time I turn on the darn thing

    My Acer AL 1912 monitor frequently pops up with a grey box that says "auto config please wait". Sometimes the display goes all shaky. Then it cycles through shutting itself off and on repeatedly. Sometimes it is once every few minutes, sometimes it's ok for days, and sometimes it's just off and on every 20 seconds or so. I cannot get my work done with this going on! How do I fix it? I thought it might be my video card (NVidia GEforce 6800) but now I see that lots of people are having similar problems with this model of monitor. I downloaded a software update for the video card. But that didn't help. Which led me to search on the monitor. I have read something about taking the monitor apart and cleaning corrosion off contacts in the button part. Is this a viable approach?

    Yes, The same problem goes for me as well. The screen is shaky sometimes and stops after a few minutes, but right at this moment, it is shaking non-stop for the past 3 hours.

I'm having the same problem, don't think its the graphics card as it behaves similarly when I unplug the VGA. Must be a power problem.

If it gives you message about the resolution, set the computer to use native resolution of the monitor. You can change the resolution by right clicking on desktop and choosing "screen resolution".

Elke monitor heeft een menu-optie. Zoek met uw handleiding hoe u uw menu-opties voor uw specifieke model en daar toegang te krijgen is een optie om berichten of waarschuwingen weer te geven. U **** het uit daar.

Acer x193w LCD Monitor repeatedly auto configures.

Here is a link to get the manual:'s%20manual.pdf

Starting on page 15 are the directions for the monitor controls. Page 17 indicates a "RESET" feture to Clear the Old-Statuses of "Auto-Configuration". There are quite a number of setting for this monitor.

My acer AL1912 monitor keeps going fuzzy. It kind

An unusual problem for a flat screen monitor.
I suggest you connect the monitor to another PC to see if the problem persists since it could also be caused by the video card (or circuit, if on board).
Check your cables making sure they are solidly connected and wiggle them to see if you can cause the problem to come or go away; this would crudely check the shielding of them.
This kind of aberration could easily happen with a conventional CRT monitor if power supply filtering was failing but as mentioned, uncommon in a monitor that is essentially digital.

Auto Config Please Wait message

Each monitor has a menu option. Find out with your manual how to access your menu options for your specific model and in there is an option to display messages or warnings. You can turn it off there.
