Question about Acer Computer Monitors
Screen goes black after loading to desktop. Says no signal.
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.
