I had this issue, it's the onboard graphics card being fried that is the problem. It also sadly stops you being able to use the extra graphics card slot in PCI-e. You'll need to replace the entire motherboard, though it's not one that is still being manufactured. A replacement board will cost £150. Luckily, currys have given me £305 towards a replacement, as mine died out of warranty.

My acer aspire m3641 just shows black screen


Is the computer booting? Fans spin? LED's blink? Sound? Have you tried another monitor? If so, check and reseat ALL cables. The specs indicate you have Integrated NVidia 7050 Graphics Adapter. You may need a aftermarket PCIe x16 Graphics Card to install in a open slot. Verify the cables are good and the monitor works on another computer first.

Will a falty fan cause the computer not to boot up


Depends on the fan. Yes, if its the CPU fan. They radiate heat like you would not believe. A chassis fan should not be much of factor. I'm undecided on a power supply fan. I guess that would depend on how power is being drawn.

Dead Aspire m3641


Make sure the power supply is working, don't depend on the battery alone. If power is OK, turn it off. pull the battery out and power supply out. Get access to the bottom and remove the RAM chips, and if you can get to it remove the button battery as well. Wait a few minutes, then replace the battery and then the RAM, then fire it up.

Monitor wont recieve signal from computer aspire m3641


Your Acer Aspire computer system is not POSTing, or passing the Power On Self Test.

Claim warranty support before trying the following as opening the chassis in some cases voids current warranty.

Open the side panel of the computer chassis and remove the RAM modules. Clean the gold fingered connectors of the RAM modules with tissue paper. Once completed clean the actual RAM slots/dimms on the mainboard. Carefully use a vacuum cleaner.

Reinstall the RAM modules in the correct orientation. Power on the computer system.

MY AMD PHENOM QUAD CORE HEAT SINK FAN IS NOT


First, check for dust. Compressed air works to clean it out.
Second, if the fan is not spinning at all when the computer is turned on, make sure it's plugged in - a wire should connect somewhere
If neither of those work, you may just have to look into a replacement fan, at the least, or a new heatsink/fan assembly. Make sure you get one for AM3 (as Intel sockets - usually designated with a number like 775, 1136, etc. - are secured differently.) They can run from cheap to over $100.

Would need more detail but sounds like it is a problem with your processor overheating because of ur fan situation. To be sure of this download a program such as speedfan to gauge your temps.
