Is my screen dead?

  edenworkshops 17:01 17 Nov 2013


I was given an Acer L1716 screen the other day. It worked fine, but yesterday while watching an apisode of QI on utube, the screen went black and the word "Acer" kept flashing on the screen, I tried this and that, re-booting, twiddled with all the switches on the front of the Acer screen, checked connections, but it remains the same.

Is my screen dead?

Thank you

sounds like you have lost the signal from the PC

check the cable connection fom PC to back of monitor is fully inserted.

try wriggling the cable it may have broken connection (try another cable if you have one)

If you get 'acer' flashing on the screen it means the monitor isn't getting a signal. That means the monitor is OK but your cable/GPU might not be.
