Having problems with your Acer AL1916ASD (Silver) Monitor ?

No image -- monitor remains black

\015 When I boot up my computer, my AL1916ASD monitor remains black. The on/off button flashes green, but doesn't respond to turning off or on. I have tried to re-boot, disconnect and re-connect power and VGA cables, but still no image.\015

Answers :

Without any instruments to check it with, substitution is the best test; in other words connect the monitor to another system for a minute or two and/or a different monitor to your system.\015\012(If you can do either, don't do 'hot' swaps, turn everything off and then back on again.)

\015\012If you've noticed it; you may have seen that the LED flashes if the monitor is left on and the system shut down.\015\012Removing the VGA cable from the back of your system (or the monitor if it is separable) should produce the same result; flashing LED. \015\012If this is the case, then your video source from the system (on-board of add-on) has failed.\015\012If the video chipset on the motherboard has failed, it can be disabled and replaced by an add-in board for a few dollars.
