From what you say, I'll assume you see stuff on the monitor like the BIOS info,and the Windows splash screen. Then it goes black.
This happens when Windows loads the video drivers for your video card. Up until that point, you are using generic VGA drivers. I would guess the drivers are corrupt and the video card just stops working when it tries to access them.
You'll need new drivers for your card (you'll need to determine that--you can ask me directly by clicking on my name if you need help there). Then you'll need to start your computer in safe mode and remove the video card from the device manager. Depending on the directions you have for your video card, you may have to tell the computer not to install drivers when you restart your computer, but run the install program first.

No signal pops up on the screen


make sure your cables are tight. make sure you have the correct input selected on your monitor. swap your monitor on the pc with one from a freind that works. this rules out your graphics card and the pc. if all of these are correct you probably have a bad video input on the monitor. you may need it repaired.

Screen comes on says Acer then No Signal, and goes out. if shut power off and then back on get same result.


This means the monitor believes it's not connected to the computer. Verify the cables first of all. Then try booting in safe mode (F8 key at PC startup) in order to verify that the PC is sending data to the proper video port (you might have a dual VGA / Digital output, for example, and the monitor might be connected to the wrong PC port). Quite often, a "bad signal" will be the same of "no signal"; and you can have a bad signal if the monitor resolution on the PC is set too high. This could happen if you installed a high-resolution capable monitor, and then replaced it with a not-completely-plug-and-play, lower resolution one. The PC would keep sending hi-res signals to a monitor which can neither interpret them, nor tell the PC "please slow down". To check this last possibility, reboot your computer while the monitor is ON. When PCs reboot, they usually drop back to standard VGA signaling, which all monitors understand. If the monitor abruptly comes to life and displays a boot screen, then goes No Signal again after several seconds, you've got a resolution issue; get in Safe Mode with F8 key at boot, and modify the screen properties (right-mouse button on the desktop, then Properties).

If everything else fails, try also connecting the monitor to another PC or laptop, to see if it works there.
