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.

I want my monitor to work once again because it says cannot display video mode? i dont understand help me?


You didn't say which OS you're running. However, it looks like you need to restart your computer in safe mode. This URL explains how to get in safe mode. When the computer boots the video it will look a bit grainy and you won't be able to see the entire desktop without using the scroll bars.

Both XP and Vista don't allow you to perform such an operation through the regular procedure and, as a result, you will only be able to get a screen resolution of 800×600 with the consequence that some icons and programs won't be displayed correctly. This is because Safe Mode just loads only basic services and drivers which are strictly necessary for Windows to run.

Fortunately, by employing the following techniques, you can get around this restriction permitting you to get whatever screen resolution you want.

Windows XP:
  1. Right click on your desktop.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Click the Settings tab.
  4. Under Screen Resolution, drag the pointer to the right (where higher resolutions are located).
  5. Click Advanced.
  6. On the new window click OK, without modifying anything.
  7. Done, you should have successfully changed the resolution settings.
Windows Vista:
  1. Right click on your desktop.
  2. Click Personalize.
  3. Click Display Settings.
  4. Under Resolution, drag the pointer to the right (where higher resolutions are located).
  5. Click Advanced Settings.
  6. On the new window click OK, without modifying anything.
  7. Done, you should have successfully change the resolution settings.

Hello, Please Help :-( I've replaced a broken monitor on Acer asprie 5570Z I would like to use it again BUT. the BIOS & Windows Vista Ultimate OS have passwords. I remember the BIOS password but not...


Download, burn to CD and then boot Hiren's Boot CD to change the password of any account on a Windows PC to one of your choosing. If you don't have a CD - you can put this on a USB flash drive instead - but you'll need to ba able to boot from USB. This is a free download and there is nothing to buy.

I *know* this will help - good luck! Please rate my reply, thanks!

Cannon display this video mode


This message occurs when the display mode in the video settings is outside the parameters of the monitor.

One way to try and get past this is to boot to the F8 Menu (press F8 at startup till you get a windows start menu, and select the "Enable VGA Mode" for WIndows XP or "Low Resolution Mode" Vista/WIndows 7 and let the system boot to a 640 x 480 low resolution. Once at desktop, you can right click teh desktop and go to dispaly properties and increase the color and resolutiont to the OPTIMAL for you monitor.

ACER with Dell 24" monitor


If it is a Dell Ultrasharp 2408WFP it can display a max of 1920x1200.

Mirage 3 is integrated graphics I believe and integrated graphics have no business running such HD resolutions such as 1920x1200. It will choke or refuse to do that resolution generally.

Other 24" Monitors can do a max of (1920x1080) which is basically 1080 HD resolution. You need to find which monitor you have, what its max resolution is, and then find what the max resolution is that your SiS Mirage 3 can output.

No Signal


Not all monitors can display the same resolutions. You may have has the Dell monitor set at something the Acer can not handle. Try rebooting and if you can see the Dell startup screen press F8 as soon as it disappears. This will give you the Windows Startup Options menu, which is text and should display on any monitor. Then select VGA MODE, which is the lowest common denominator for graphics. You should be able to see the Windows display at a much lower resolution (ie, larger fonts and icons) than usual until you can reset your graphics properties to work with the new monitor.

when you say you have it plugged into the on-board video output.. does that mean there is a graphics card installed too? used to be graphics card installed? if there is or was then its possible that there is a bois setting that tells your computer to use the existent or non-existent graphics card. either was your onboard is going to shut down. This is one theory.. but since its is turning off once you get to your desk top the more likely reason is that its software based and you either have the wrong resolution, driver, or refresh rate selected to use when windows boots. Toy around with diffrent resolutions, refresh rates, also if you have a graphics card plug it into that. your on board most certinly will not be enabled if you have a graphics card.

VGA MODE in vista:

Restart the computer and immediately start pressing the F8 key, once per second. At the selection screen, use the up/down keys to select "Enable VGA Mode", then press the "Enter" key.. If it works, it will bring up the basic VGA drivers in "normal" Windows and should allow you to install the Vista compatible drivers for your new card. After installing the new drivers, restart the computer and if it remains in VGA, you should then be able to adjust the resolution, etc. from the "Display Properties".
