Monitor issues Acer 5610-4621

\015 Hello: We have an Acer Aspire 5610-4621 purchased new in 2007. Originally installed with Vista. Within the first year there was an internal part changed and the monitor screen. The computer would take the screen and make everything checkerboard style red and black. We had the monitor changed again just for months ago. Now the computer screen textbecomes unreadable where you get a bunch of lines of broken text. I dumped Vista, wiped the hard drive, re-formatted it, installed Windows XP service pack 3, downloaded all of the driers for XP from the ACER website. Everything ran fine for a period of 2 weeks trouble free. Now when the copmuter boots up the screen is all wonky and the text is brocken up even in 'safe mode' sometimes the screen shows the main screen in triplicate one below the other and the text is undecipherable. Any ideas or suggstions? Harry\015

Answers :

\015\012 I suspect it to be more of video card problem rather than a LCD screen issue. If you have and external monitor. Plug the same to the monitor . toggle the display from the LCD to the external monitor, by pressing the FN+F8 key a couple of times. IF the display is bad on the external display , its a bad motherboard or video card .
\015\012 If the display is fine , its the LCD again. Sometimes the LCD cable gets cracked or cut , because the connecting cables are routed closely with hinges and are damged when the LCD screen is closed .
Sounds like a bad video card honestly. I doubt the monitor was bad.

I have an Acer X1700 desktop - 3 days old by the way. Runs Vista Home Premium. 1 day after arrival, pushed power button. Monitor light is blue, flashes the Acer logo, then says "no signal" and blue light turns yellow. The fan in the tower which operates very quietly, normally, is very loud at that point. Have been able to power down the tower and the monitor, unplug all from the wall, hold the power button on the monitor down for 20 seconds or so, turn it all back on, and then it boots just fine
