What is causing the strangest video error I have ever come across? [more inside]
See-through windows on an LCD? [more inside]
What is going on with my display? Some kind of "pan-and-scan" effect has been switched on and it's making me seasick. [more inside]
What is going on with my computer? Black flashes, weird picture artifacts, screen freezing. It's not the monitor (swapped that out already). Is it the video card? Weird pictures inside! [more inside]
My mother has an Acer LCD (model AL1715) hooked up to her Mac Mini. The warranty expired 3 days ago, and last night it woke up after being asleep for about 45 minutes with a black line across it - the image divided in such a way that the image has rolled - that is, the bottom is at the top and the top at the bottom, split not quite equal halves. Disconnecting and reconnecting don't work, powering off and back on don't work, changing the display mode on the mac doesn't work, and we can't find a reset button. Acer doesn't answer tech support phone calls (endless holds) or emails. Any ideas?
