Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

No signal to monitor and will not respond to manual shutdown.

This computer will not connect to a monitor when booting up. It never reaches a bios menu. Everything seems to be working fine. I have power to all fans as well as the Hard disc and CD drive. I can't see anything on the monitor to know for sure that it is booting completely. I have tested the monitor on another computer and it works perfect. Here are the specs Acer Brand Processor: AMD Athlon Duel Core 64 Bit OS:Windows Vista Home Edition Ram:4 GB 500 GB Hard drive Integrated ATI Radeon Graphics I have researched for a long time on this now and it seems that it could be hardware failure due to overheating. I don't have a way to check this though. I can not test the graphics card because I don't own one at the moment. I am just trying to get a little more help on the situation so I can fix it myself. Thanks in advance.

    I also have to unplug it from the wall as it will not respond to a manual shutdown by holding down the power button.

SOURCE: ATI RADEON 9550 X 1050 256MB --Someitmes Screen goes blank

try reinstall the video card driver !
check the back of the game box if 1.6 ghz is enough power its kind of odd if it does it just on that game cause your ram memory is enough !

get the new drive off the ati website !
it could be a multitude of problems ! the video card could also be overheating ! if the screens says no video signal after it stops you card is the problem!

also you motherboard could also only support 4x video card therse a lot to lean on here !

SOURCE: ATI Radeon 1650x Problem in Installation

Some games require high settings, they run on phsx, sli, 256mb-512mb. Ram is also a factor, When installing a good graphics cards some things change and it takes some power to run them. Although I made one run on 480 watts its not recommended, Later as you ad more features (upgrade) 550watts is some of the minimum system requirements to run at least one graphics card. If its still doing the same thing after the power supply, Another is make sure the upnp (universal plug and play) and pnp (plug and play) are enabled in the services menu.

When i shutdown my computer after that when lcd goes black then at that time a message shown on the black screen that "no input signal" and also glows little bit light with this message continuously.

Your monitor may have an option to set it as "manual" or "auto". If set in manual, you will have to turn off the monitor power switch each time. If it has the "auto" setting , it should shut off or "go to sleep" when it detects no input signal.

When i plug up the L1975NW lcd monitor what should show up ?

"no input" means that there is no signal from computer or the monitor cable is unplugged. When you first turn on monitor it usually does a self test and then looks for signal. Not connected to PC will give a no signal. If it is connected but PC is off (not unplugged) then it should go into standby as you vid card will be sending a standby signal to any monitor connected. Sometimes the Plug and Play monitors need to register before it will recognize a standby signal from PC, so plug it up and boot up PC. Then shutdown normally, your monitor should go into standby when the PC shuts down.

No signal

Check cable connections. Check using a different monitor.
The only other possibility is that you're trying to drive it with a signal that is beyond the capability of the monitor. But the computer boot-up (BIOS) screen won't exceed the monitor's capability.

When I turn on my computer the monitor remains dark unit after about 10 mins then I get the windows desk top. If I shut down the computer (normal shutdown)then restart I get the normal startup...

Try connect your monitor to some other box and try if it works the same way or as a normal pc boot. If it works well with other box, the issue is with the BIOS. Get the BIOS flashed with the latest version of flash program for the Bios chipset which your board is using. If the monitor shows the same symptom on a different box too.. you may need to get your monitor repaired. Good Luck

Video signal

If it worked fine before the AGP card was removed then the problem is probably related to your BIOS settings. The BIOS setting that controls the integrated video may be set to OFF.
  1. Insert an AGP video card
  2. connect the monitor to the card
  3. boot to BIOS
  4. check settings
  5. turn ON integrated video
  6. save and exit BIOS
  7. shutdown
  8. Remove AGP card
  9. connect monitor to motherboard video port.
  10. Reboot.

What happened?
