Cannot run a monitor on Aser Aspire SA80

G'day i have brought a friends pc home to repair, as it is riddled with issues, and the registry is corrupted...The pc was running on the owners lcd monitor, but now that i have brought it home and hooked it up to my lcd, 17'crt and 19' crt, it will not show anything on the screen! I also brought it 'here as im on B/Band and they are still on dial up, so as to speed up my repairs...I'm stuck, Elp? TIA

Try pressing the F8 key when the computer starts to boot up. When you get to the safe mode screen, select Enable VGA mode. Evidently your friend's monitor can support resolutions and/or refresh rates that yours does not. Oh and one more thing, please rate this solution with a fixya rating. Thanks!

    So when you turn on the computer, you don't get a post screen or anything? No Acer logo? Nothing comes up?

    Okay, is this a standalone video card? If it is, remove it then reseat it in the slot.

    A lot of computers will have a built in video card. This is built directly into the motherboard and is usually beneath the keyboard / mouse ports, colored blue. Other computers that have an actual video card, the monitor will plug into a card which plugs into the motherboard. If that's the case, unscrew the card, remove it, then put it back in again making sure it is completely seated in the slot. Put the screw back in again. I've seen this happen many times when a computer is moved. And, yes, make sure you ground yourself before touching the card. :c)

Acer aspire sa80-9b7z won't start up. Fan starts


Firstly check the monitor, if you get 8 beeps as it is starting up, this points to graphics problems. Trying another monitor. If the problem remains, swap the graphics card or use the onboard graphics card.
If this fails and, more importantly, you are not getting any beeps (single beep would indicate your CPU is ok), the problem is likely to lie with the motherboard.
To help you further, please repost with the number of beeps if any, you get as it tries to boot up

Have an acer aspire sa80, formatted hard drive, no missing : Multimedia Audio Controller Video Controller (VGA Compatible) USB Controller drivers. I use a dongle to access wireless internet, and as usb not...


Hi,
You need drivers for your system.
All the official acer drivers for your system are here :-

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/power_s260.html#driver

As listed at the site:-

Realtek Audio Driver is your Multimedia Audio Controller.
NVIDIA VGA Driver should be your Video Controller, if that don't work try SIS VGA Driver.

SiS 661 chipset driver should fix your usb problem, if it dosn't update windows to SP2.
Get that from here: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/. Then try again with SiS 661 Chipset Driver.

You should also install the rest of the drivers for your aspire sa80.

You said you had no access to internet so burn the drivers using a friends computer (one with internet) and install from the disc and you should be fine.
