    Hello ecurbshe,

    Can you give more detailed information on exactly how you are connecting the external monitor? Do you have a dual vga card?

A few things to go through to attempt a signal--

1) when you connect the video cable are you hitting the Function (Fn) and F-key that corresponds to the video switch (Usually Fn key next to the Alt and Shift keys... and the F5 key at the top of your keyboard)

2) right-click anywhere on your desktop and select Properties. This should bring you to the display properties. go to the 'Settings' tab and see if it shows a second screen and attempt to activate it.

3) if that doesn't work your computer may require that you have the video cable plugged in before you turn it on. plug in the video cable and restart your computer.

Monitor states No signal. this is a new computer, just today


Make sure you are connecting the monitor signal lead to the correct signal output on the rear of the machine. Some desktops have extra video out connectors when they have a graphics card fitted. If yours has a graphics card the display connector will be away from the back USB ,audio and keyboard ports and near to some silver pop out panels near the bottom of the tower.

Aspire AX1200-U1510A starts but monitor doesn't show anything. Monitor works with an odl Dell.


If an old Dell monitor works with your computer then that monitor has something wrong with it.

Try to plug in the monitor to a wall outlet but do not plug it to your computer. If it still doesn't show anything, then you should replace it. You can contact the manufacturer of the monitor. You might have a warranty for it. They might fix it or replace it with a new one.

I hope this helps.

Acer ASpire M1100 shows No Signal on monitor


Any time a monitor says "no signal" that message is originating from the monitor itself, and not from the computer. A monitor in a room by itself with no computer will say "no signal" for a brief time, if it is turned on. So, if you have tried other monitors also with no luck, then the problem is either the video adapter of the computer, or something that is keeping the computer from booting in the first place (power supply, hard drive, memory, motherboard). A power supply can be tested with an inexpensive tool. Everything else needs either a swap out with a known good stand-in, or else an expensive tool to know if it works.Does the fan come on when you turn the computer on? If so, maybe more likely to be the motherboard, hard disk, or memory. If not, more likely to be the power supply.

Acer aspire m1100 desktop getting a no signal on monitor, how do I get my pc to open


My Acer Aspire M1100 would not boot and had no signal to the monitor. I thought the video card or motherboard had gone bad. I tinkered with it for over 2 years (yes I'm hardheaded) and finally realized the processor had worked itself loose. Reseated the processor and it works fine again. Hope this helps someone.

I have an Aspire X3200, its been in the garage for a year and when I switched it on it starts and sounds like it all working but there is no signal going to the monitor, I know the monitor works because...


It could be the cable going from the computer to the monitor -- what type of connection is it using? It could also be the port on the motherboard where the cable connects. If the monitor accepts different cable types (such as SVGA or DVI) try a different connection and see if it works then.

The monitor keeps saying no signal


Turn power off to the tower and the monitor before making any connection changes.Make sure that the Blue connector from your monitor is connected to the Blue connector on the back of the computer tower. If this doesn't work you should try the monitor with another computer, just to check that the monitor is working. If the monitor works on another computer you may need to buy a Graphics Card. Next, try another monitor with your tower- If the problem still exists it is likely you need a Graphics Card.

My monitor will go on when i turn my computer on and it says no signal than goes black?


First we need to determine whether the PC is causing the problem or the monitor thats causing the problem. Try hooking up a different monitor (that you know works) and if it works fine, then you konw the other monitor is bad. If the problem persists, then you know that its something to do with the PC. Most likely the video card.

I have acer aspire series computer for 2 years.one day when i open my computer my monitor display no signal what are the reasons


Hi! it means that the monitor is not picking any signal from the tower or computer.Check all physical cables first esp the video cable from the monitor to the tower.Check if the computer has power by checking lights, sound coming of the machine. Check if monitor cable is securely plugged in to the vga or hdmi port.If you are using a adapter for that cable try to directly plugin the cable without using the adapter.If still no signal, check if you have a external video card or internal.if you have a external video card and thats the one that youre using then remove the external video card(you need to open up the tower and physically remove the external video card) and connect the video cable to the onboard card then check if will get a signal.hope this helps...

Computer or Monitor problem?


Seems like you have a bad motherboard. Try a different keyboard, mouse, and VGA cable, and see if it works. I fnot then you deffinitely need a new motherboard.
