Hey there everett 403, my first suggestion would be that your video card is malfunctioning. You have not mentioned if you installed one. If you have one installed, begin by removing it and switching your monitor connection to the onboard port. If this works to get the screen working, then next step is to replace the video card. If it is still not working, try removing your ram. Check it for damage of any sort. If good, reinstall and ensure to seat properly. I would also check the light on your motherboard. If it flashes, there may be a problem with your board, such as burnt capacitors. If these solutions do not solve, please include info on configuration and peripherals, and anything different you have been doing with your machine as of late. Good Luck!

M93p suddenly the screen goes black screen

Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

Good luck

What would cause computer not to turn on when the power is loaded and the screen to stay black?

Im sorry about your situation.

Does the computer turn on??
If the computer turns on do you hear or can you see the fan working??

If the computer turns on does it stay on or does it shut down after a few minutes??

This will help us determine what is going on.

Z 5600 Acer will not power up get lines across screen or white screen or black screen and no booting up

Try plugging in an external monitor. Then reboot. That will answer your first question - "Is my monitor fried?"

Oh wait, the Acer Z5600 is an all-in-one. Does it have an external VGA port? Should have. Acer support is here:

Suddenly my e-machine monitor stopped working. After unplugging the pc then turning it on, the screen is black with the e-machine logo. It also says F2 and F10 (bios and I forget.) What do I do/

It isn't the monitor at fault here, the boot stops at BIOS screen because the BIOS cannot find the OS - either it was corrupted beyond access (try a Repair install if you have important data on it, otherwise just do a full reinstall - much safer) or the hard disk has died (replace it and reinstall).

Computer says no HDMI signal and monitor screen turns black

you computer does not use HDMI but your monitor has a HDMI port in the back. Change the input on your monitor via the buttons on the front.

My monitor suddenly lost signal and hasn't returned

do you mean the processor fan that is located near on the left top corner on the motherboard? if that stopped working then turn of your pc immediately. probably the cpu overheated. if that fan does not work replace it immediately as it will burn the cpu.

HP monitor problems

Look into trying a PCI video card. I doubt the monitor went bad, however, the onboard video controller for the PC may have.
