This is the way how to examine where the problem is. Try this monitor with another computer. If still a problem, you have to check that you can see the image on screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons (Power on both cpu and monitor), there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken. If you cannot see any icon on the screen. I would say that there are some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or dark spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.

VisionTek Radeon HD 5450 VHDCI doesn't seem to recognize monitors?


Try one monitor at a time, if you get nothing, reseat the card, if you get nothing try another port like display port or hdmi. If you get nothing take the card out and try the onboard graphics. IF you get something with the onboard, replace the card.

Monitor shows no signal when put on. i've checked the graphic card and it seems to have no problem. RAM and CMOS battery are all fine but data refuses to show on monitor. Please i'll need...


A) Power Supply:
Power Supply has a weak voltage power rail.

!O_O!

But the LED's light, and fans spin?

1) If ALL of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor (CPU) can use 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Just depends on what Processor it is.

This is why the simpy little LED's can light, and fans spin; but Not enough power to turn the Processor on.

There are 3 voltage power rails;
A) 3.3 Volt
B) 5 Volt
C) 12 Volt
ALL are DC Voltage.

[In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC ]

Do you have access to a multimeter to test them with?
Around here an economical multimeter is $5 to $12.
Available at auto parts stores, (A wee more expensive)
I have also seen them on checkout aisle racks, at major discount stores.

I can guide you step by step.

OR,
Do you have a KNOWN to be good, Compatible power supply; that you can use for a temporary test unit?

B) Electrolytic Capacitors:
Specifically - Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors.

Some motherboards use nothing but those.
Newer motherboards went to using those, plus Solid Polymer Capacitors.
Finally, most new motherboards that are gamer style, use nothing BUT Solid Polymer Capacitors.
(Or whatever the new solid capacitor used is)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lut7MX5Dd_A

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague

C) Next,.........
The front of your computer is the Front Panel.
Disconnect all cables going to the Front Panel, for the USB ports, Firewire ports (1394/1394a), and Card Reader cables.

DO NOT disconnect the cable/wires from the Front Panel header, on the motherboard.

[The area of contact pins on the motherboard, that the Main wires go to, is the Front Panel header.

The main wires are the Power On switch, Power On LED light, HarDDrive activity LED light, and Reset switch, IF used ]

Still no?

Disconnect the Harddrive cable from the motherboard, (Data cable), and the power cable to Harddrive.
Do the same for the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)

ONLY things to be connected is the;
1) Processor
2) Heatsink
3) Processor Fan
4) Ram Memory

Graphics card, IF it is the only graphics solution.
Otherwise, plug the monitor into the Integrated Graphics of the motherboard.

[Back of computer in the I/O area. The I/O area has a rectangular sheet metal, I/O Shield around it.

Input/Output area.
Input: Mouse, Keyboard, etc.
Output: Monitor, Printer, etc ]

NO cables from motherboard connected to Anything, except Processor Fan, and Front Panel header.

Does the BIOS Setup screen show, when you press the enter BIOS Setup key?

Post back in a Comment.

Acer Aspire 5536 only gives black screen when i connect power supply


  • Nothing is more annoying than a monitor that refuses to turn on. Make sure your Acer monitor is plugged in to a functioning outlet. If it's plugged into a power strip, try replacing it with a new one or moving the plug to a different outlet. Ensure that both ends of the power cable are plugged in firmly and securely, and that the connection to the monitor is not loose.
Cable Issues
  • Your Acer LCD monitor will usually accept DVI and VGA inputs. If you have an older computer, a VGA cable should work fine. If it doesn't have a VGA port, you'll need to obtain an inexpensive DVI to VGA adapter at your local computer store. A DVI cable, however, is compatible with most modern computers and offers superior picture quality over VGA. Make sure you're using the cable that's compatible with your system, and that you have the proper conversion adapter, if necessary.

Hi, I have a Princeton LCD17D flat screen monitor and the screen keeps going black after 20 seconds or so. I power up my PC and it turns on then black. If I turn it off and on again the same thing occurs....


It's getting power, it's just not getting signal from the data cable. The cord that connects to the monitor, (not the power) is typically the reason it is going into standby mode. This can also happen if your graphics card driver is missing on your operating system, but you said you tried the monitor on another machine, so I narrowing it down to most likely be the data cable. Try another cable.

My computer's tower turns on but it doesn't display on the monitor, the monitor shows the normal Self test box so the monitor doesn't seem to be the problem. Also when I press the power off...


Make sure that the cable is connected from your computer to the monitor, and if it is wiggle it and push it in all the way. If it has screws, screw them in. If that does not work, check that your monitor is on the correct input (if it has multiple) then see if anything comes on the monitor. If nothing happens you should buy a new cable from the store. If all of those steps do not work your computer or your monitor might have a more serious problem.

Clarification - I have the same problem. Keep in mind that this is an All-in-one. There is no cable from PC to monitor. PC is built into the monitor. I suspect that the motherboard needs to be replaced, since even if it is the graphics adapter, it's on the motherboard...

Hi, The part where you see some color bars and blinking green led is what we call MONITOR SELF TEST. A diagnostic pattern consisting of four colors (red, green, blue and white) appears, and the LED flashes slowly. this happens when signal cable from the monitor is disconnected from the tower and leaving the power chord for the monitor plugged in. If the monitor works properly on a different computer. then its a problem with the computer's video card sending out signal. im 85% sure that its a problem with your video card.
