Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Acer lcd monitorX221W : 18 months old, no prior problems. Today, image suddenly went out. Upon restarting, the name ACER comes on , fades after a few seconds, then the prompt to fill in Password. The image decreases in intensity and disappears in seconds. After numerous repeats, turning switch on and off, the same occurs. After image fades, the lime green light at the bottom center front stays on, but no image appears on screen The CD for this application will not play. Thanks...........Han


Answers :

Sounds a lot like the backlight for it is just about dead. Nothing you've done can cause this to happen, and it certainly isn't a setting on the monitor or PC.

\015\012The backlight can be bought as a part, and replaced by a technician (or yourself if you have a rough idea what you're doing). By the time you find one, buy it, ship it, fit it... it might not be worth your time for the cost of a new 21" widescreen monitor.

\015\012You'd probably recoup some loss by selling it as faulty for parts too.

\015\012Still, be 100% sure before you do it... borrow a monitor and plug it in. I bet the borrowed monitor won't behave the same way. =-]
