Acer AL1715 Monitor - screen distortion, discoloration, several times each day

\015 Each day my Acer AL1715 monitor screen becomes discolored, blurry,\015\012disorted and useless. This happens repeatedly without any\015\012apparent pattern in terms of length of time it's been turned on,\015\012etc. For now it returns to normal after awhile but I'm very\015\012concerned that eventually it won't.\015\012\015\012Help!\015

Answers :

Certain versions of the Acer AL1715 monitor had a problem with the VGA socket. Specifically, the plastic case around the socket was not wide enough. The plastic lip interfered with the plug and so the plug does not seat properly. This causes all sorts of intermittent problems. The version of the AL1715 with the problem with had the UPC code of 0 99802 19889 3. I fixed several of these monitors by shaving off the excess plastic with a Dremel Mototool. A hand file would probably work as well. You have to remove the plastic back to get the clearance to do the job.

Is it in warranty if so did you ask acer support?Or you could check the settings[the buttons on the screen(if it has any)].Also in some cases it can be the videocard/chipset.

I have an NEC Multisync LCD 1770GX monitor. Is it possible for something to interfere with the display? I see screen distortion on and off during the day.

Sometimes it is barely visible - I can see light flickering in the blue areas in 'Windows', and other times it is quite severe to the point where I can't read items on my task/tool bar. It can stop very abruptly, leavi
