Good start. Suggest you borrow a working monitor & hook it up to your pc. Still no video? Your Pc system has a built in video card. It is part of the mainboard. The video is run by a intergrated controller. Either the controller is defective or just the video is defective. You do have an extra PCI (white in color) slot. You can add a PCI video card, however it may or may not function with the defective video controller.
This link below shows what your mainboard supports. This is only a referance. Some other sites show differant configurations not consistant with this link. http://www.acer.com.au/aca/acawebv2.nsf/7df5312841bde42a4a2563730019cf4d/e05b08dc3d5357fbca256f390083a0cf?OpenDocument
2nd link. This is differant.: http://www.productshub.com/Acer-Aspire-SA20/features/

If your power light is on and no long beeps from your computer then is your intergrated video chip is bad. Your system board dosnt support agp or pci-e video cards. You will have to settle for a pci video card here is a good computer store to purchase one. http://www.mwave.com/mwave/Deepsearchdd.hmx?%CustURLState%

I have an eMachine that the moniter will not turn on. I run a virus scan. But cannot get the moniter the stay on. the power light is on, the screen is not working.


The first thing we need to do is figure out if the problem is the computer or the monitor.

Have you got another computer around, a laptop will work too.

Moniter says no signal


You may need to replace the moniter cord or check the video card on the computer.

My Moniter Is Blank


First make sure that you have the P4 connector (the square one at the top of the board connected to your P4 power from the power supply.
From here I would disconnect the data cables from the hdd, optical drives, and remove all video/peripheral cards. You should have only the RAM, CPU, and power connected, then try to boot again.
If this works, then add 1 device at a time until it fails to start. This will isolate the component that is giving you problems.
With a single stick of RAM, try to get the computer to POST. (if possible, test the ram in another machine first to ensure that RAM is good)

Computer Moniter screen turned purple


Hi,

This is a problem with the video cards hardware or the driver itself depending on your card you should updaate your cards driver from the appropriate site,right click the desktop>properties>settings>advanced>ada... will then see the name and manufacturer of your graphic card
go to the appropriate website and download the latest driver,here are the three main graphic card manufacturers websites
1) nvidia.....http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.asp...
2)a.t.i.....http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html
3)intel...http://support.intel.com/
other things to check are
1.make sure your graphic card is securely fitted and if power is required to the card,then check the power connector is securly fitted and inserted
2.try changing your monitors lead from the v.g.a connector to the d.v.i connector at the back of the card,the v.g.a. is a blue connector and the d.v.i. is a white connector,and the d.v.i requires a d.v.i to v.g.a converter
3.where applicable install any monitor drivers however these are rarely required
4.run the direct x diagnostic utility,press start>run>type dxdiag >press enter,then go to the display tab and run the "test direct 3d" test
5.finally check all cables are securly fitted
if after these tests and tasks you still experience problems then change the graphics card and run the tests again,if you experience more problems then a new video/graphic card is required
any problems let me know
good luck .......
