Re: monitor not recieving signal
Have you tried a different Monitor with the PC?
Sounds like a Video card problem. Try a different Monitor that you know works with it. If you have the same problem try removing the video card from the PC and then put it back in. Make sure it fully seats into its slot, if the slot has a flipcatch at the back of it make sure that swings up and locks into the notch on the video card. If there is a power connector on the video card make sure that it is plugged in.
If you try these and you still have a problem, please post a comment here, so I can further help you

There are 2 basic reasons for the "No Signal" message.
Loose video card inside the machine- if you're machine didn't come with on board video or if you are using an independent video card instead of on board video, the card can unseat at times, either due to movement of the machine or pulling on the video cord
Loose connection between the video cord and/or monitor and/or machine. Unless the plugs on both ends are secure (including tightening both screws to prevent loss of connection), the cord can dislodge just enough to interrupt your connection, causing a "No Signal".
If neither of these is the case, try hooking up a different monitor (if equipped, you can use an HDMI cable to your TV) to see if the "No Signal" message persists.If using a different monitor works, the issue is your Acer Monitor.
I was just dealing with this last night. My pc would come on, but I kept getting a "No Signal" message on my monitor. I first plugged the machine into a known working monitor. It worked fine so that eliminated the video card issue. Then I plugged the monitor into a different computer...it too worked. So I knew that the monitor was good. I then switched the cord from the faulty monitor and still didn't get a signal. I proceeded investigating the issue. I found that if you boot the machine in safe mode, it actually caught a signal. So...I figured it must be something to do with the resolution. My solution: Boot the machine in safe mode, change the resolution in the control panel and reboot the machine. If it doesnt catch the signal booting in safe mode, I suspect it is a faulty video card. You are likely to find what you are looking for online at zipzoomfly.com or newegg.com
have you checked the cord and connection to the video card?also you could try resetting the bios.unplug the power cord on the pc.remove the batterie on the motherboard.power it back up.remove power cord again and replace batterie and restart pc.
Sounds like your video card is bad. You will need to purchase a new one. On some machines there is 2 video connectors -like 1 on the motherboard and 1 other mounted in a slot just verify that you have tried both connectors if you have them before buying a new card.
NOTE: Usually the slot mounted video card will over-ride the motherboard video by default.
I have run into this a few times and it has turned out to be a bad motherboard.Also the power supply they put in the emachine is not very good.The power supply in them has caused the motherboard to blow.Im not saying it is your motherboard, that is just a good possibility.Goodluck
