We just purchased an acer aspire 1700 desktop and there was nothing supplied to help us to connect our new computer. We have a laptop hooked up. We are replacing it with the new desktop. How do I hook it up?

Try to check the power supply at the back of your computer that they have works normally if the fan are not punctioning so it means your power supply are damage. But if they works just checked the connection inside or clean the RAM's pin by wiping of pencil eraser or rubber. Or check the processor that they dont have any overheat, just hold the heatsink of the processor and if it is very heat so your processor is damage.
There are numerous issues that could cause this but if absolutely nothing happens, no lights, no fans, nothing then check the power supply. Use a simple voltage tester to see if you have any voltage on the connectors going to the hard drive and cd/dvd drives. If not this is a pretty easy and relatively inexpensive fix. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more help.
try removing the bios battery and unplugging the unit, wait about 5 minutes and put battery back in and plug computer back up. Try to boot, if you still have not video, try hooking up a different monitor.
first you have to check if the power supplyof your CPU is not defective.or your power the one that is connected to the AC outlet. replace the power and try to turn it on if still not working purchase a new power supply that fits to your PC ....its up to you how many wattage your going to buy
Try these sequence(you need another one good computer to test and interchange component and you will find out the problem): - check your RAM, if you use two RAM start
computer using one and interchange it to find out which one is bad - if your RAM OK, check your VGA - if your RAM and VGA OK, try to check your power supply, sometimes defective PS cannot supply sufficient power to all component to work.
Since you have other computers available you may want to try swapping out a power suplly to see if that cures this computer. You just have to make sure of two things. The replacement power supply is the same or greater wattage and that it has the right connectors (newer computers made changes to the connectors).
Also make sure that you did not accidentally press the on/off switch on the back of the power supply. I did this once and felt kind of silly. Not all power supplies will have that switch, but a lot do.
Let us know what you find.
If it is new and only a few weeks old, take it back to where you purchased it from as if you want the restore cd's from Acer, they will charge you $20 or $40 plus shipping.
I hope this helps.
check the website for drivers. But it seems to me that there is another problem most computer boot up no matter what screen is hook up. have you tried any other monitors ? If you have and the work im not sure what your issue is but i would say that most likely if another monitor works that it is the monitor but if none of them work it is a graphic card issue. If you could let me know what you are running and i can help more i.e what window's and what type of graphics card you are using
