    No beeps in the beginning. Starts up fine. All fans and lights come on but will not show anything on the screen. It is not the video card because I replaced it with a brand new one. I also put a operating disk in and it still would not come up. So I am not sure what it is.

If you have another monitor try it, if it works then you have a bad monitor. If a different monitor doesn't work in it then it could be the motherboard or CPU. If they are bad there is not test for that, the only real way to test them is to buy one piece at a time and see which one works. Also if your monitor has a power adapter check it. Sometimes those do die and not the monitor.

    I would guess the processor is dead. If it were the motherboard then you probably won't get the lights and fans. But with the processor being out that would give you lights and fans. Since there is no beeps I would definitely check the CPU(processor).

Computer starts but moniter stays in sleep mode .. moniter works on different comp .. will adding a vid card to my comp fix this problem ??

Actually, Yes. It seems like you have answered your own question... Especially considering the monitor works on another computer.

Do you have another monitor to test on this computer?

Although another consideration could be if you recently installed or downloaded a program which may have changed your video output range to a setting your video monitor wont handle. If this is the case and you can start the computer in safe mode, this will allow you to go into your properties settings and change it back. This way, a new vid card is not req.

Good Luck

When I start up the Acer Aspire M3710 Desktop it won't do anything but run the processor, it won't give any results of the POST and it also refuses to show anything on my screen (no Signal)....

1. Check the video cable (the one going from the monitor to the video card) 2. Check if the video card is properly connected to the motherboard (must be tightly plugged into the port)3.This could also mean that the drivers for the video card are not correctly installed

My computer starts up fine no beeps all lights and fans all run fine when i start it up. But it dont show anything on the moniter. It is not the video card. I put a new video card in it thinking that might...

Not a clearcut answer unless you are experienced at bench testing. I will say that nine times out of ten it is the motherboard and not the cpu. If you had another system that would accepts your cpu, you could install that and check but you absolutely should not try this if you are not experienced and know how to do this properly. You also should check the motherboard for burnt areas as well.

There is a slight chance it is the power supply. A bad power supply can sometimes give enough power for the fan and lights but still be bad.

Comp not reading montor

It sounds like the on board video has failed. I would try installing a video card on the motherboard. Then in the bios at start up, disable the on board video, so it will use the video card instead.

I hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa,

Moniter dosent work

I have been fixing one for a customer. At first I thought that it was the typical burned out powersupply. Delta Electronics has created a replacement. The old REV 00 is 185 watts peak. The new REV01 is 185 nominal. Was the shaggy067 did not take the time to look up is that the 610 is an "All in one" modular monitor/case.
This customers is the first one that I have replace the power supply and it still does not work. I believe the flourescent backer of the LCD1.gif is shot. I will not know for sure until I find another one. The S-video works fine, so I am testing it using my projector. Everything works except the lcd panel.
check out for how to disassemble and replace the power supple. By the power supply from and not from the crooks on ebay1.gif. They are the only authorized rebuilders of the power supplies.
