Ensure that the cable to the back of the machine and the bottom of the monitor is properly connected on both ends. If another cable is available, switch it and see if the issue persists.

If you have another monitor, switch it out too. If you are still getting issues with the machine, it may be that the graphics chipset on your motherboard (or your videocard itself, if it is separate), is having issues.. If so, you'll need to contact the manufacturer or take it to a repair shop to see about getting it looked at and the parts you need replaced.

My Acer m1201 desktop computer will not come on.After turning on , then switch monitor off and on , It says ACER, then "no signal" .How can I fix it?


Acer monitors all display the ACER logo when you turn them on. There are one of three most likely issues with the system.

  1. If the monitor has multiple input jacks (VGA/DVI), check to be sure that the monitor is selecting the input that you have the computer connected to. One of the control buttons on the monitor should select input source.
  2. If #1 is not the problem, the monitor itself may be faulty. The input jack may not be working. Test the system with another monitor if possible.
  3. If another monitor doesn't work either, then you have a problem with the on-board graphics adapter for the computer. You will either need to replace the computer, or if possible, install a graphics card into the machine to take over for the failed portion of the motherboard.

My computer had not been used in a couple of weeks and when I turned it back on it started beeping and the monitor will come on but cannot see screen


The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

How do I get rid of osd lockout


Fix One:

Plug in the monitor and power it up. Hold down the Power button until you get a message saying "OSD Unlocked". If the problem persists after OSD is unlocked then unplug the monitor from the wall, wait 20 seconds and try again.
Fix Two:

Turn on the monitor and hold down the Menu button for 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.
Fix Three:

Turn off the monitor, press down the Menu button and then turn on the monitor. Wait 10-20 seconds. This should unlock the OSD.
Fix Four:

The Menu button may be stuck in a pressed in position. To get it "unstuck" you'll usually need to open up the monitor. This could be tricky unless you know what you're doing. Unfortunately there are too many models of monitor for me to provide detailed instructions. If you have warranty this is where you want to contact the manufacturer.

Comp. powers on, shuts down three times then goes into powersave


You may want to check the power supply fan whether it works properly or not. Also, you may need to check your BIOS setup if you had done anything with it.

Lcd monitor won't turn on


Hi,

the fact that there is no picture it doesn't mean that the lcd monitor wouldn't turn on or would be faulty.

It means that the monitor is not getting picture from the computer, the cord could be loose or the computer has a problem and its unable to start up or send signal.

you can try the monitor on another computer that works, to find out if the display works fine.

if the display works fine then the problem is the computer not turning on or starting up, if there is a fault or error you should hear beeps, the lack of beeps may also be a sign of a fault or a error.

What you can do is, unplug the computer for 10 minutes and try turning it on again, reconnect the display cable and try again.

Do you have a screwdriver and is the computer covered with warranty or not? if the computer is on warranty better not to get inside, just contact your dealer and get it serviced.

NEC Monitor turns off


Look at your power saving settings. It appears you have your computer monitor to go to sleep. I would change it to never sleep

I have a ACER LCD Monitor that will not power up when turned on. The power light does not come on. (AL1715)It was purchased under three years ago.


Check to see if the computer is turned on and that the monitor is plugged in. If all Ok, then your monitor is burned out. Do not open the monitor case and look inside because you can get a shock. Just replace it. Three years is about normal life span.
