Answers :

Hi,

Based on publish specs of the Acer AL2016W its maximum resolution is 1680x1050. If the PC is fine then perhaps the issue is that the PC is set to display higher than the 1680x1050 max res of the Acer LCD. What is required is to lower down the Screen resolution of the PC. This can be done by booting into Safe Mode (on boot, press and hold (or tap continuously) "F8", display will be "Windows Advanced Options Menu", use up/down arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and hit the Enter key. Right click on any clear area of the desktop and click on Properties, click on the Settings tab and move the Screen resolution to 1680 by 1050 pixels or lower. In some cases, you may need to lower down also the Screen refresh rate. Reboot.

hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
When you say you have it plugged into the on-board video output.. does that mean there is a graphics card installed too? used to be graphics card installed? if there is or was then its possible that there is a bois setting that tells your computer to use the existent or non-existent graphics card. either was your onboard is going to shut down. This is one theory.. but since its is turning off once you get to your desk top the more likely reason is that its software based and you either have the wrong resolution, driver, or refresh rate selected to use when windows boots. Toy around with diffrent resolutions, refresh rates, also if you have a graphics card plug it into that. your on board most certinly will not be enabled if you have a graphics card.

VGA MODE in vista:

Restart the computer and immediately start pressing the F8 key, once\015\012per second. At the selection screen, use the up/down keys to select\015\012"Enable VGA Mode", then press the "Enter" key.. If it works, it will\015\012bring up the basic VGA drivers in "normal" Windows and should allow you\015\012to install the Vista compatible drivers for your new card. After\015\012installing the new drivers, restart the computer and if it remains in\015\012VGA, you should then be able to adjust the resolution, etc. from the\015\012"Display Properties".
