No Signal With Acer Al2216 Monitor


I have used this acer monitor with 32 bit xp system and upgraded to windows 7  64 bit system. On initial hookup everything worked fine i then had to get data off the old computer and hooked it back up and the monitor then showed no signal. So i unhooked the old computer with xp and rehooked the new windows 7 computer and it shows no signal as well. Please advise how i can get signal back to monitor and if it is advisable to swap computers if i am going to have this issue. I still need to use the old one with the data that is on it.

Monitor Loses Signal In Media Center

Running windows 7 rc on a dell dimension e521. Runs great, except for the odd thing that has been happening lately. Randomly, while watching tv through windows media center, i'll hear the sound that usually plays when a usb cable is unplugged, and then my monitor will lose its signal. There is no way to get the signal back, as i've tried unplugging and replugging the monitor in, both power and dvi. Ive tried ctrl+alt+del. I usually have to hard restart, and then my monitor comes back on when the bios screen comes on. I want to say its a driver issue, but it happens so randomly, i just cant tell what it is. Any guesses?

Resuming Windows - Blank Screen - Monitor No Signal

We have tried a half dozen times to turn on the windows 7, 64bit system without success. The resuming windows message appears then the screen goes blank then the screen goes to looking like there is no pc attached at all and reports no signal. We have been using the system regularly and almost daily, on shut down there are updates 1 of n to install. That happened the night before the crash and it was 1 of 1 and taking over 15 minutes so i turned off only the monitor so we could sleep.

Acer Monitor X223h Problem

I have been running windows 7 pro. (Clean install) as a dual boot (xp) on my lenovo thinkpad r60. There is one problem that i have not been able to fix & that is when i want to connect a acer external monitor - x223h or al2216w. Windows 7 does not detect the monitors at all.

In other posts i have read that i just need to click the "detect" button but this does nothing. The acer & lenovo site both don't have any windows 7 drivers for these monitors & when i rang them for help they told me it is a know problem with windows 7. Has anyone had this issue with acer monitors & fixed the problem ?

Live Tv Shows No Signal But There Is

Windows media center tv hangs after re-installing windows 7, quite naturally i had to re-tune tv within windows media center. It appears to have download all the channels and schedules, but it states there is no tv signal when i know there is. In the past it has looked for a tv signal and just hung. At least i get a message now stating that there is no signal. All the channels are there complete with channel numbers and programs. I decided to re-tune, but how can i do that? Would a file delete be in order?

Kworld Usb Tv Tuner - Unable To Determine Tv Signal Configuration

Kworld 399u usb tv tuner "unable to determine tv signal configuration" windows 7 media center (64 bit) i have just upgraded my 64 bit vista machine to windows 7 and am no longer able to use my kworld 399u usb tv tuner in media center.

It worked fine under vista, however after upgrading i was asked to set up my tv signals again. After media center runs "examining tv signals" for several minutes, it displays the message "windows media center is unable to determine your tv signal configuration".

I have tried downloading and installing the latest windows 7 drivers from http://uk. Kworld-global.com/main/support_down.aspx?Mnuid=1338&modid=22, but this does not make a difference.

I rolled my machine back to windows vista and the tuner works perfectly again, even after installing the latest drivers.

Dual Monitor Problem - 2nd Monitor Detected Black

Ok, so i have a dell that was running vista and two monitors. When i upgraded to windows 7 pro i ran into the infamous black screen problem and fixed it. However, i only fixed my main monitor. When i open the display window, both of my monitors are detected but my secondary monitor shows a black screen and the monitor itself says there is no signal detected from my pc.

The strange thing is my pc thinks its working (i can drag a window from my working monitor towards the black one and it moves out of my working monitor into the black screen). I currently have both of them plugged in using a dvi to vga splitter and i have also updated the drivers by clicking the "update driver" button in the monitor properties window. Please help if you can!

Cannot Move Windows From One Monitor To Other - Dual Monitor Setup

I have two monitors of the same resolution connected to an ati radeon hd 4300/4500 video card. In windows 7 extended mode i see a full working desktop on one monitor, but only the background picture on the other - the four-square flag motif again a blue background with wispy lines, butterfly etc.

No taskbar, icons or anything else. On one occasion briefly the mouse cursor appeared on it instead of on the full desktop image. If i try to drag a window on to the second monitor it won't go there. The settings are landscape with two mointors "1" and "2". I have two images but how can i use the second one?

Acer Aspire 6930 Problems

Since i upgraded my acer aspire 6930 from vista to windows 7 i have been having many issues, including the blue screen of death twice. Another problem is updates. Whenever i attempt to download updates it takes me directly to the vista updates page and then just sits there for ever "checking updates". In an attempt to force my system to use windows 7 updates i went directly to microsoft.com and surfed my way to the windows 7 updates. Now it's "searching for updates on this computer" it has been doing this for approx 20 min and nothing is happening. Not to mention it won't find any becausei haven't managed to download any since i upgraded.

Among many other minor issues, the last problem is the fact that when i go to programs through the control panel and click on 'turn windows features on or off' it sits there for quite a while but when it's done the screen is blank.

I'm thinking the upgrade hit a snag, part of my computer thinks it's still vista while others act like windows 7. Of note my bf who has the exact same system as i do - bought at same time - and upgraded the same day as i is not having these problems and certain features on his system are completely different from mine.

What do i do? I still have the recovery disks from when my system had vista on it, do i try to recover it from those? I'm reluctant to use the 7 recovery disks because i assume they will have the same issues. Please help.

Acer Aspire One Webcam Not Working

I have an acer aspire one 10" model w/ built in webcam. I purchased in july 2009, model came installed with xp. I recently upgraded to windows 7. Acer will not support me because i have upgraded and they insisted i purchase tech service for assistance. Ridic! The device manager displays webcam and states it is working properly. It also states driver updated. I have uninstalled it restarted and reinstalled, but it still is not working.

I use to be able to click it open, now  when i click pic it just displays the information but no where on my computer am i able to actually open the device for picture purposes, quite frustrating in finding answer on web, seems to be a lot of people giving answers or links to driver scan sites.

Broken Acer Upgrade Dvd

I installed my windows 7 upgrade dvd after i received it i believe some time in january 2010. As i put the disk into a dvd container, it broke. I tried acer customer service who told me to contact mentor media. I tried but there was no response from mentor media so i complained to the canadian corporate office and the better business bureau. Finally someone left a message with my order number. I tried accessing the mentor media site with the order number to no avail.

I never received a replacement disk and was told today that there was no way of getting it because mentor media was out of existence. How can i get a replacement of a disk i need to re-install a windows 7 upgrade? Otherwise my acer computer may be useless. Perhaps looking for someone i can pay to copy their acer upgrade dvd [ the green one] and send it to me or create an iso file so i can make a replacement.

Acer Win 7 Upgrade Offer

I bought acer computer on 28/1/2010 and immediately ordered upgrade and as it refused to accept my visa debit card i had to pay by telegraphic transfer to the bank in czech republic. Order status still says pending payment but i have been advised that mentor media have definitely received payment. I emailed them several times and never got a reply. I phoned acer who were diabolical and kept saying it is being handled by mentor media but the contract is with acer as everything up to the order confirmation is from them. It is only when it gets to payment that it changes to payment in czech republic.

I have been cut off by acer a couple of times and they refuse to take on board all my information plus refuse to put me onto a manager. I bought the computer from staples in oxford, england as my son said to get this one as it had windows 7 upgrade offer and they say it is acer who is dealing with this but acer pass the buck to mentor media who are more or less dead as they never reply. Pass the parcel has nothing on this and i am absolutely disgusted by all this.

Acer Aspire Refuses To Shut Down

I bought an acer aspire 5738 just before christmas and sent off for the windows 7 upgrade disc and installed it. It was working fine until today, when all of a sudden it refused to shut down.
I've left it for over an hour, and all it that happens is the screen switches off after a while. Every occasion so far, i've had to hard shut down the laptop. I've tried restoring from an earlier point, closing everything down via task manager before shutting down and the various windows diagnostic tools, but nothing seems to be working. I don't understand why it wasn't a problem until now, and is now screwed up, as i haven't installed any new software in a couple of months. Can anyone help me?

Acer Win 7 Home Premium Oem

I have an acer aspire desktop pre installed win7 home premium oem x64 – it is needing a complete clean re install, only thing is i don't have a windows 7 home premium oem dvd. I only have a retail win7 dvd that i purchased a while ago for my partner- so is it possible to use the win 7 home premium dvd retail to re install my acer oem?
 
Does it work by changing the ei. Cfg file from – channel – retail to oem?
 
Or just by removing the ei. Cfg file?
 
Would any of the above work and if not is there another way around this? Now for what i mention on the above and having read the microsoft laws i am assuming this is boarder line from being illegal. As all of the above has been purchased by myself. And i don't want to use the recovery partition as full of bloatware.
