The video prt where you plug in the monitor cord is broke off. What can I do so my monitor works?

Is the port broke off the computer or the back of the monitor? If its off the computer and you have expansion slot available on the motherboard you can get a video card. Make sure you get the right type as a PCI video card will not fit in a PCI express or APG type slot.

I have a acer m 1620. when i power it up the screen comes on and say no signal and then goes black. the fan comes on and continues to run but thats it. does anyone have any ideas?

It sounds like the video cable is loose, try unplugging it and plugging it back in. Also check if the screws on the video cable are tightened. If this does not work the graphics card has likely failed.

It sounds something else is wrong, try plugging out every pci, pci-e, and usb. If the problem still persist, try updating your motherboard driver and cmos driver.
If all the above fails, then you have a bad motherboard. Then there's nothing else you can do but buy a new pc or replace the motherboard.

It sounds like the placement of your video card on the motherboard is not correct. Try plugging out your motherboard of the casing and place it on top of the motherboard box with the black cover. Then plug in your video card and turn it on there and see what's going on.
If problem still persist, get an older pci video card. Then upgrade the cmos and try it again.

The computer was in use when the display cut out. The monitor is fine and the computer turns on but has no display on the monitor

I presume that you tried the monitor on another system to verify function. Try restart after 2 min power down and disconnect and try again, then take another "known good" monitor and try that. If both monitors give no image, video output is suspect. Many motherboards have the video output as part of the board itself, cost prohibitive to replace motherboard.
Sometimes you can plug in a PCI video card and bypass system video.

I would check the components inside the case...sounds like something wiggled loose while you were kicking it. Open the case...first check that all the cards (pci/video/RAM) are properly seated in their slots. Next make sure the hard drive plugs havn't wiggled loose. Post back if it still doesn't work

I have an averatec D1002UHCE-1 and for no reason the screen is not turning on. LEDs and Fans turn on but the screen does not show anything. What can i do?

Clarification - I have the same problem. Keep in mind that this is an All-in-one. There is no cable from PC to monitor. PC is built into the monitor. I suspect that the motherboard needs to be replaced, since even if it is the graphics adapter, it's on the motherboard...

Screen has a blue tint - no red

sounds to me either your video card is bad if your computer came with one or if your video card is integrated into the computer then the motherboard is bad.

Basically if you have a video card, it will plug into either a PCI or AGP slot and alot of times they overheat or the fans fail on them. If thats the case you would replace the video card. If you have integrated video on your motheroard meaning you don't have a card and you plug the monitor into the motherboard video connector then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

Component that the moniter plugs into is bent and broke off

Go and buy a new video card, but first you need to determine what kind you need, AGP, PCI, PCI Express, etc.
If you don't have the pin diagram for the vga connector you can ruin the motherboard.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.
