You have to look up the model number off the board and see what chipset you have and so forth and so on. Without the model number off the board there is no real way to tell

Lights come on. Fans turn. No video.

Try an external monitor. If that works, reseat the video cable at the motherboard and at the LCD. Otherwise, the LCD is probably dead.

Why does my Acer AM5100-U5201A not displaying any images anymore?

I had the same issue, and found the problem to be a bad motherboard. I simply replaced it with an HP Pavilion board, and I can now get as far as booting up windows. However, It looks like I'm going to have to reinstall Vista, because it BSODs during boot every time.

Acer Aspire M5100 AM5100-U5313A AMD 4400 will not boot. Powers on but does not display boot sequence... Monitor acts like it is not hooked up... tried onboard card as well and pci express. I am thinking a...

Could be. Sounds like a repair shop issue if no system info is appearing.

This may be pointless, but try it anyway: -

It shows symptoms of RAM error, except it lacks warning beeps or led flash usually associated with this. Some PC's don't have this function.

Remove all RAM and replace one stick only, presuming you have at least 2 sticks. then try the same thing with the other sticks, one module at a time.

It's rare, but RAM does fail and it causes these symptoms. Also, if RAM is mixed and incompatible, this would also occur.

Mixing RAM may also kill the good RAM.

Next, check your PSU voltage readings ie 5v rails and 12 volt rails with a good quality multimeter. Or you might try another PSU.

Really need to have it physically in front of me to give a better answer.

Processor update..

The problem with Store bought PCs is that there is no way to tell how fast a proccessor you can safely put into one before it becomes overclocking, but in theory your exact motherboard should support an AMD Athlon X2 5800+ 1000 Mhz FSB. Now if your willing to take a risk, you could buy a 6400+ but be warned, the computer may not recognize it, or it may just underclock the proccessor, if the processor supports 800 Mhz FSB. I said the 1000 Mhz FSB because it can underclock to that speed, and also because they no longer offer 800 Mhz flavors at the sites i order from. Hope that helps.

I knew som adevice

You need to go online to the manfacturer and go to their support page and download a manual for your motherboard. It should give you all the specifications and the different processors your board will support.
