Re: My monitor won't start

There must be a connection problem from monitor to pc, check the pins to see if any are bent in the plug to the pc. If it is a seperate graphics card, check that it is seated correctly in the agp (brown) slot and not come loose. Try booting in safe mode (F8) on boot and select boot Windows in safe mode(this will run pc with normal vga driver and not the graphics driver), and see if it stays on, if it does it is a graphics card driver fault, so re install.

I cannot get into my computer, that was set up yesterday w/ no problem today its adking for a password for outlook that I have never had, I

Outlook is the default email program.have you tried to configure your emails to go through outlook?you can clear all emails accounts in outlook if you have no need to use outlook to prevent the pop up screen from annoying you.i assume you do have system restore running which case choose a restore date from an earlier time than when the problem started and it should successfully restore settings to work around the issue.acer systems have their own restore capability which you must be careful not to activate or you will lose all your personal files as everything reverts back to factory install.i don't know which operating system you are on so any further advice is limited.

My computer turns on but is stuck on the acer screen del: enter setup and f12: boot menu are there but keyboard won't respond I've tried everything

First unplud everything except the monitor and keyboard from the system. This can help to narrow down the problem. If it boots after doing this then one by one plug everything back in until you find the problem device.

Also try leaving it on the Acer screen for a while to see if you eventually get an error code. You might even have to let it set there for 30 minutes or so.

Try and start it in safe mode. Rebbot the computer and as soon as soon as the computer starts to boot hit F8 several times this should bring it up in safe mode. If you get the compputer up in safe mode try to restore to a different date.

Let me know if this helps

This message is from your monitor ... there is something going on with your connection between the computer and the monitor. Check all connections - are you using the proper connection? Is there a switch to choose between several different methods? USB? RGB? Other?

Connected new computer to acer monitor and it says no signal all cables are plugged in. Tried a second monitor as well

The video-adapter on the new computer may be defective,
since it does not output anything to either monitor.

Take the computer back to where you bought it,
and get them to connect one of their monitors to it,
to prove that it works, or to replace it, or to fix it.

Computer will not load up - frozen on acer start screen?

Are you sure the monitor is plugged into the correct port? Also, check the monitor cable for bent pins. A small move shouldn't make this kind of difference. Eliminate that power strip and just plug the computer and monitor into an outlet.

Can not start my computer

Plug the unit directly to the ac outlet if it is plug into a surge protector. See if it boots. Did you shut it down yesterday or was it left running? Any bad weather last night? You could try another computer memory and see it is the memory. Not sure what it could be at this point. What type of system is it?
It could possibly be a bad power supply.

I hope this helps.

I just bought an X223W Acer LCD monitor. The texts appear blurred on the screen. What adjustment do I need to make it sharp? Thanks.

You probably need to up the screen resolution.
Start/Control Panel/Display/Settings tab/Screen resolution.
1024X768 minimum.
While you are in the click the advanced button then click the monitor tab. Your refresh rate will most likely by 60 Hertz. Down below that you will see a "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display" check box. Check it. Now click the drop down arrow for the screen refresh rate. Set this to the highest setting there. This will stop the flicker that gives a lot of people headaches when they spend a long time at their computer.
