Having problems with your Acer AL1916W 19" LCD Monitor ?

Same problem, acer sucks imo

\015 I have been using my monitor without problems until I recently started using a dual monitor setup. My primary display Acer AL2216W is connected to my Radeon X800 XL through the DVI connection and my secondary display Sony KDL-40Z4100 LCD TV is connected through VGA. Whenever I turn off my Acer AL2216W and turn it back on I get no signal. The only way I can get the signal back is if I restart the computer or unplug the DVI cable and plug it back in. But when I do that the Sony KDL-40Z4100 takes over as the primary display. Right now my only solution is to just not turn off my Acer AL2216W but I would like to fix this so I can turn it on and off when I want. Any ideas or fix to this problem?\015

Answers :

Similar problem with Acer AL2216W - sometimes DVI input don't work properly (but analog in works well in the same time) and I have blackness on panel - I just need to change resolution on my ATI video card for a moment and return to native 1680x1050 (resetting of the monitor?) and things go right. This is my 1st and last time when I bought Acer product. I just opened up and replaced few bulging capacitors (CapXon - known cheap ****) and I will never buy Acer again!!! It's simply ****!
I think I may have fixed it but I haven't rebooted my computer yet. I uninstalled the latest ATI driver version 9.3 and then installed an older driver version 7.3. Monitor now turns on and off and gets signal every time so far. I'll post back if it the problem comes back after I reboot.
