Cycling Monitor Power (sometimes) When Switching Between Fullscreen And Windowed Mode?

Dec 20, 2015

Just installed Windows 10 about a month or two ago, and ever since I upgraded (from Windows 7), whenever a program enters full-screen mode (a game for example), the monitor cycles its power off and back on for a quick second, which causes it to display its "power-on" logo on the screen (in this case, the Acer logo), and wait a few seconds before it goes back to the correct display.

I watched lately when it started doing this, and the blue light that shows monitor power actually flicks off for a quick second, and then comes back on. I've never seen it do this before, but it's like maybe Windows 10 is changing the monitor display output to some insane resolution maybe, and causing it to power itself off for a second? Or it's turning the output off for a second?

Customization :: Multiple Monitor Wallpaper Keeps Switching

Aug 10, 2015

I have 2 monitors in extended desktop mode and each one has a different wallpaper. I saved them as a theme but after a little while, they seem to switch witch screen they are on (monitor 1's wallpaper goes to monitor 2 and monitor 2's wallpaper goes to monitor 1). If I go back and reselect my theme, nothing happens so I have to select a different one and then reselect my theme for it to go back the way it should be. After a little while they get messed up again.

Performance :: Resume From Monitor Power Off

Oct 22, 2015

So i just upgraded from Windows 7 to Win10 a week ago and everything went smooth as silk. I will said this is the first time i can remember doing an in place upgrade, I always format and do a clean install about once a year but ive been busy so i took the lazy route.

Issue is i have my power settings set to None and my power options set to turn the monitors off after 10 minutes. I have it set to Never sleep. After the 10 minutes passes the monitors power off as expected but when i move the mouse or hit keys on my keyboard it takes at least 10-15 seconds to initiate the monitor power on. This was 1-2 seconds in Windows 7. Its pretty minor but its irritating as hell.

Installation :: Monitor Not Working After Power Outage During Upgrade?

Sep 13, 2015

About 2 weeks ago I was upgrading Windows from 7 to 10. wehn at about 35% through there was a power outage and all power was lost.

When the power came back on, I switched my computer on and the screen was blank, power was getting to the screen, it came up with the ACER brand name and then said 'signal lost' and turned off.

The computer does something, but I'm not sure what as I cant see anythign on the screen, I connected 2 different monitors to get the same response.

What can I do to get the computer working properly, I'm not sure if the upgrade was sucessful or not and need to get information from the the PC.

what I can do to get the use of the computer back again without deleting all the data on it, or how I can transfer the files to another PC.

BSOD :: Put Into Sleep Mode And Now PC Is In Power Loop

Sep 1, 2015

I installed windows 10 about a week ago and all was working fine until I decided to try sleep mode a couple of days ago. I activated sleep mode but noticed after powering off that my PC was turning back on for a few seconds before powering back off in a loop. I didn't think to much of it and powered it off at the wall thinking that would clear any sleep errors. Well I've come back to use it after a couple days and it's still is stuck in a power loop of starting for 3 or 4 seconds before powering back off again in a continuous loop!

No chance to go into the bios, no sign of windows, just an endless power cycle!
