Question about Computers & Internet
I have an acer monitor that was working fine with my HP PC before they put a new motherbard and hard drive.
No sometimes the PC does not recognise the monitor when I try to boot up.
It will most likely not be the monitor at fault, but the video card in your computer.
If your monitor is working like a monitor should, then it is a bit of technically dumb equipment. It can only do what the video card tells it to do in essence.
So if your video card does nothing, then the monitor can not do anything.
When your computer first starts (when the monitor remains blank) do you hear a beep, or a series of beeps from the computer?
If you get 1 quick beep, that is good, if you get a beep, followed by 2 quick beeps, then check the video card is in the computer correctly by pushing it into the slot. It may have moved just slightly out of place between the time it was installed and the time it was hooked back up, particulary if the motherboard and video card were changed at a shop and the computer had to be transported.
Also check the memory is in the slots correctly.
If your unsure on what these look like, then please post back and I will try to explain them in more detail.
Hope that helps =)
