Acer eMachines E725-4520 Notebook (the dash matters)
acer both them and gateway and packard bell long ago.
2009 made states your manual.

runnng VISTA , unstated by you and IS KEY fact ? what OS?

ok lines are 2 reasons,
1: overheated PC. ever clean it in last decade? fully, all vent paths all.
2: bad LCD, 2008 bad GPU, sold by many. then., all bad.

if this is your GPU it is ok. but nVidia 2008, is no good. Intel GMA 4500M
your GPU is this, if you told last 4 digit of model correctly 4520

we can not tell what you can do ever. (be god like that) but we tell you to ask on acer forum. we are not acer. or how test it, do you want to learn testing? that it. no shops in town to fix this PC? NO PC stated (OF 10,000 MODELS) NO OS state so no answers possible. (but generic) Fast boot is w10, so turn off fastboot that causes windows to load fresh, and clean. do that is many ways, here is alist in my PC it is also in the BIOS pages too.. fast boot. BASICALLY WE GO TO SAFE MODE. w10 made this hard to do, F8 key is now dead.for w10 just for funs and giggles they did that. but SAFE boot is still valid. the PC can have a bad HDD, we test it first, ask how, with smart app' then try to do the recovery mode.
the PC has strick 3 your out mode, boot 3 times and on 3rd failure you see the windows recovery mode POP the silly blue screens click set advanced options click startup settings click enable safe mode, and click restart

tad older post but not too old, and ignored.
it's an old monitor lucky you it works at all,
after all most are dead now, 99%
15 years old today.
if the OSD is dead under 10second from, power on
the Montors CCFL tubes are dead.
the fail these ways
1: dead for ever.
2: work intermitantly (you)
4: only 1/2 screen dead, (2 tube displays)
5; turn yellow, for white
6: dim, for ver.

never seen any 15 year old CCFL screens good.
not me unless parked on self for 10 years.
the clue is on last page, in your manual, the word "
mercury Hg toxic, it's there)
the cure is 2010 or newer monitors with LED back lamps
do that now, end the pain of #1 soon to happen.

Acer AL1912 19"... | Answered 2 days ago

old post, doing all 2018,
that is NOT the full model number, why post lacking that
or what OS you run ,windows, what?
ok windows login works, but what is a TILE?
ok this is simple really, you slammed the OS some way.
that means changed OS in wrong way.
NO OS stated, but now the video driver is WRONG
my guess is the resolution is in safe ,mode 800.600 and sure
is no good for most apps. sure.
not known the real name of this PC means I have to look them up backwards at, a real pain that is.
ok, me fooling about on ebay, it is and
Acer Aspire One AOA150 (for sure)
it came new with XP ONLY, so still running XP the virus magnet
that it?
here it is, click vga and load that.
if you upgraded to Vista or newer this will fail\
click control panel then click system
BINGO your OS is told to you, now , never post
computers questions lacking that KEY FACT, or answers will be wrong or ignored just like this one was for 12 months.

old post but the F20 has CCFL lamps and all are dead now
if used 10hr/day for 5 year they die, all do that.
if the flashlight test passes (see data on screen with Menu button pressed over and over the CCFL tubes died.
buy a LCD monitor 2010 or newer and with LED
end the pain of CCFL now. like most have now./

it is at least 12 years old today, amazon reviews
the silly book on it has no date (very rare that)
2006 is OLD!

This mentions the webcam

Amazon com Acer Aspire 5516 5063 15 6 Inch Laptop Computers Accessories

But this doesn't. Sometimes model variations are dependent on the country of sale.

Go to Start - Settings. In the search box put 'camera' as opposed to 'webcam'. That works on my HP, 'webcam' doesn't give any results.

You can look in your bios if you didn't turn it off by chance.
Otherwise you erase it from your hardware and look for it again in new hardware and install.

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
