Re: will come on-then say no signal
If you mean the monitor is fine during the Windows booting process and then just as your about to go into Windows goes black then do this...
Start the computer
When the bios screen goes start pressing F8
A Windows Startup screen will appear
If you see the Windows Logo (the loading one) then hit reset and try again
At the Windows Startup page, select Safe Mode and press enter twice.
Windows will now load. Go into Device Manager (Start-Settings-Control Panel-System-Device Manager)
Select the video card, and uninstall it.
Reinstall your video card using the Installer package (if it's ATI or nVidia)
If this dosn't work, then post back and we will try something else
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

When you did the upgrade, the key would be on the packet the CD came in and also with a sticker for your computer itself. Operating systems never 'self activate', you always have to enter the key and you are usually prompted every time you boot the computer. This should not have come as a shock to you.
If you have lost that CD, or if it was a pirated copy, you will need to contact Microsoft.
There are keys out there and key generators, but fairly shortly M$ will shut you down as they realise different computers with different IP addresses are using the same activation key..
If you use your computer a lot, you should at least pay for the OS that lets all this happen. Just my view.
I think you are experiencing something that happens a lot when you change monitors, possibly 'downsizing'? Your graphics settings on your actual PC were set too high for the new, smaller flat-screen, so what you'll have to do is hook it back up to another monitor, even an older CRT-style one, and then do the following steps before hooking it back up to your new 14" LCD:
boot into Windows as usual, but on an older, perhaps larger monitor
right-click on any empty area on your desktop, then left-click on 'Properties' at the bottom of the little pull-down menu that pops up
when 'Display Properties' window comes up, click on the very last tab to the right, labelled ''Settings'
find the 'Screen Resolution' slider bar about two-thirds the way down that window, and adjust the slider control to a more standardized, universal setting, like '800x600', or even '1024x786'. Either of those should work with your new LCD flatscreen.
make sure you click 'OK' on that window, then 'Shut Down' Windows properly (using the Start button, and all that)
disconnect your old monitor, and hook your new one back up. It should work!
This happens a lot. I build HTPCs, so it's even worse the more 'options' you have, believe me.
Hope this helps!
There are a variety of problems when installing Adobe Acrobat, try using this troubleshooting guide, hopefully it will elimate your problem.
First, make sure you computer can handle the program..the minimum requirements are as followed..
* Intel Pentium-class processor
* Windows XP Professional or Home Edition with SP1 or SP2, or Tablet PC Edition; Microsoft Windows 2000 with Service Pack 2 (SP2)
* 128 MB of RAM
* 90 MB of available hard-disk space for the full version
* 800 x 600 monitor resolution
* Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 or later
And for the Adobe Reader 6.0:
* Pentium-class processor
* Windows XP Professional, Home, or Tablet PC Edition; Windows Me; Windows 2000 Professional SP2; Windows NT Workstation 4.0 SP6;
Windows 98 Second Edition
* 32 MB of RAM (64 MB recommended)
* 80 MB of available hard disk space
* 800 x 600 monitor resolution
-- Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.01 or later, Netscape Navigator 7.0 or later, or America Online 6.0 or later
Here are some other tips...Increase your available disk space.
Download where the activity is not so crowded.
Set your security levels and opions to default level.
Disable your firewall.
If the monitor displays POST messages as it boots, then your monitor is still working. It would appear that either your video card or your monitor settings need fixing. Try booting Windows in SAFE MODE and go to Control Panel. Select Display Settings and uninstall the existing driver for your video card.
Reboot your machine. Windows should detect your video card and install its proper drivers. If you've gotten this far, your monitor is working.
Failing the above, reboot in SAFE MODE again and this time uninstall your monitor. Try rebooting again and Windows should again detect, configure and install your monitor appropriately.
Most laptops go into standby mode when the lid is closed. To stop this, (Windows XP) click Start, Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, Power Options, then click on the Advanced tab, select "Do nothing" in the drop-down for "When I close the lid of my portable computer"
You need to lower the resolution into the monitor's range. 1024x768 is the usual safe one. Now, if you could tell the operationg system you are running it would be a little easier to help. I'm going to assume it's xp for now. You need to plug a different monitor into the computer, preferably a CRT, as they support a HUGE range of resolutions. Then you schould be able to see the screen. Right click on the desktop and click properties. Click on the settings tab on the far right of the new window. Now you should see a resolution dropdown. Change it to 1024x768 and click OK. Go ahead and plug the LCD back in and you should be good to go.
