no PC stated,
and what does this mean.
"showed nothing."
2nd monitor ,did it work on not? please be clear.
I guess you mean the 2nd monitor works on this unstated PC.
but not the 246 ,as it is dead. or shows odd things? no photos off odd presented,
246, is 6 years old today.

ok , PC dead, but is it silent, it must blow 2 fans desktop.
ok, does the GN246HL fail on other PCs.
if not it is good.
if yes,it is bad, simple no?
all test monitor directly to a PC, DVI jack.
this monitor is only 6 years, old and is LED backlighted

what does this mean?
Dual Link DV-I.??????????
this monitor has only one DVI port (and vga , and HDMI)

now test 1.
NO pC connected
power on the monitor,
it shows LOGO sign , ACER logo message seen for 6 long years but today is dead.
Now turn it on again and push menu button, on monitor.
you get OSD screen windows, from the monitor brain and it works
and looks good , but only for 10 seconds at power on.
the 10 second rule on OSD, means you must do that fast.

the controls are in the manual
page 22

Hi, you can try the following process:

This process will restore the c:drive with the original software that is installed when youpurchase your netbook. follow the steps to rebuild the c:drive which will be reformatted.

Check the BIOS settings
-Make sure the acer d2d (disk to disk) recover setting in MAIN is ENABLED
-Exit the BIOS and save changes. the system will reboot.
- Activate the BIOS by pressing the F2 key as your computer starts up.

TO START THE RECOVERY PROCESS (here's where it didn't do anything)

-Start the system
-While the acer logo is showing, press alt and f10 at the same time to enter the recovery process.
-Refer to the onscreen instructions to perform system recovery

Hello Peggy
Bad news, if you forgot your hard disk password there is no way to help, just buy a new one, and recover all your operating system again.
sorry, but at least its my opinion

what great question, i guess you mean HOME or neighbor hood AC power went dead that it, or what?
no PC stated, just Veriton.
lots and lost of models of slim disktops and bigger.
we can not guess what PC you own.
it has thing called PSU, that turns 120vac (usa voltage) to DC voltages that chips use.
and that is all you need just that.
the auto power on feature is a BIOS feature only
after all windows is dead, at a power failures.
not ALL BIOS have this features, did you go to
and read your manuals first.

answer , on all PCs, made , some can, some can't and for sure is not turned on new PC, you must turn it on, if it is offered in your BIOS pages.
My PC here, a server even can turn on by TIME of day. then off by time of day, or pick go to last STATE at loss of power.

no PC stated, so I cant wax smarter, not me,, not anyone really

Hello , Zodidi
no Laptop stated, at all, just Acer.
1000s of models. all very different.
NO OS stated, Windows, or Chrome or linux?
most times, like 99%?
lack of sound, is a bad driver, and 99% by folks upgrading there OS.
did you? do that?
The driver must match your sound chip and the OS you run.

if it is windows. click control panel, click system
bingo windows version stated there.
the PC has model name,

here is your support page poster here 1000s of times.
tell them what you have first, what PC, by SN or by clicking names.

You will need to send the laptop to acer for repair service. they will re-flash the bios update to get the laptop working again.

you simply don't have the tools required to do it at home.
