WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty
if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty
even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems
computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
Check your RAM.
The RAM is located in the middle of the motherboard.
There are tabs that you can push to release the RAM.
Remove it and put it back in place until the tabs pop out.
Loose RAM can cause your computer not to start properly where you want to see a video signal.
Make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket
if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free
Restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard
Check the vga lead for secure dust free connection or try another vga lead.

SOURCE: A display problem in my Acer desktop pc

techguru 2009: First thing disconnect all power. Remove all drives (hard drive, CD/DVD, Floppy). Then remove all PCI cards. Also slowly remove the Memory cards. You should only have the motherboard w/processor and the power supply connected, do not connect the monitor or mouse\keyboard. If you have a CMOS battery also remove it. Careful turn the power on, you should hear several beeps. That is letting you know that there is no memory installed. Turn power off disconnect power cord. Slowly install the memory cards, keyboard, mouse, monitor. If you have a pci video card install it now. Turn power on. you should see the bios loading then error message there is no disk or operating syste. turn power off and start connecting one device at a time so your bios can recognize it. This should let you know if you have faulty hardwareby isolating each install. If you still have problems let me know.

SOURCE: ACER Aspire L100 Desktop is dead?

If the hard drive is OK then you can remove the hard drive from the desktop case, and insert the hard drive into a USB 3 1/2" hard drive adapter case, this should come with a power adapter. These are available at your friendly computer shop.
Boot up the laptop then plug this USB hard drive adapter into the laptop's USB port. The laptop will see this as an external USB hard drive. You can open the various folders and files on this external drive and copy the folders and files to the laptop.
You can delete the Windows folder and Program Folders on this external drive to free up disk space and use this as a back up drive etc.
If you are not sure how to remove the hard drive and install it into an USB hard disk case, then I suggest you get a computer savy friend to help you.

SOURCE: Acer AM5641-U5520A will not

If you removed the memory modules and there is no change then I would start disconnecting one device at a time to see if that is causing the problem. Start by disconnecting the cd/dvd rom and then try booting the computer. Then try disconnecting any floppy drives or pci cards(except for video card). If it has a pci/agp video card then you will need to remove it and test it in another computer or test a working one in the problem computer. If it has built-in video then you will need to test a working video card in the problem computer. It could also be an issue with the power supply so remove it and test it in another computer or swap it out with a known working power supply. Also check the mother board screws that hold the board to the chassi are tight(the board uses them as a ground). Blow any dust out of the case and verify that there are no loose connectors. Also verify that the monitor is not the problem by testing it with another computer. Usually when a CPU is defective the computer will not respond to anything and will act "dead" so it does not sound like the CPU. If everything else checks out then it could be a bad motherboard.

Nothing showing up on the screen, definitely not a monitor issue the way you describe it. And you did all physical repair checks and such? Then the most likely problem I see is with the operating system. Windows Vista is so glitchy that any number of things could go wrong with it. I wouldn't put it past that OS. If you could get past the monitor issue perhaps you can uninstall that OS and upgrade to windows seven. Otherwise I'd take it in for a more professional diagnosis =/

Aces Aspire M1640 desktop-pc starts but the monitor says NO SIGNAL. Tried various monitors and videocards without result. Can't find what mainbord is in it to have it changed. Regards, Toine


black out can be caused by series of things. Power supply is one. Second is the motherboard, memory and the processor aside from the video card. Motherboard and processor can be isolated,first is to remove the rest of the devices such as hard disk and cards and memory. Beep sound means your board is still doing fine. Re install all the devices and power on again. Good luck

No input signal


Hi, there is a posibility that the issue is caused by your system unit. NO INPUT SIGNAL occurs when system unit fails to start properly. One possible reason is the power good signal was not sent back by power supply to mother board. You can check for any shorts or grounded device in your system unit. If you can reseat all the cables (power cable, IDE cable), expansion cards, memory cards even microprocessor that will be good. Another thing you can try is to power cycle your computer. If you are not confident enough to do those stuff you can call your computer vendor and ask for assistance.
