T3256 The problem that I'm having is, when I turn on my computer, it starts to boot up, then I hear a click & my monitor goes blank & displays a "no signal" message. The power is still on in the tower, but nothing else. Do I need a new motherboard, processor, or what? Thank You for your time, Gena

    I bought a new power supply & installed it. Unfortunately, it didn't fix the problem. The monitor still went blank within a few seconds of turning it on. If you can think of anything else that might help, let me know. Thanks for your time, Tolegirl

    I have exactly the same problem. Tried with another monitor - no luck.

    Mine sometime crashes straight after the big e display, other times after selecting safe mode etc. Sometimes it even gets to the windows xp startup screen and either goes black"no signal" or just freezes.

Sounds like you may need a new power supply for your computer.

Here's a link for reference

If you are not comfortable taking your pc apart you should take it to a repair shop.

That sounds like a software problem like a virus or a damaged driver or bios. if any hardware is to blame it would be your video card(the peice that you plug your monitor into) if this is sodered directly into your motherboard take it to a repar shop or if your feeling abitious replace it yourself. it shouldnt cost anymore than 50 dollars for the repair. 100 if the video card is removable(but on the upside that means that your getting something 3times or more powerful than the one your computer origonally came with and will maximize your capibility).

If it seems like the computer completed the boot process but the screen is blank, try the steps below.

The problem will either be the monitor or the video card inside the computer. Connect another monitor to the computer to isolate the problem. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays and works ok, then your original monitor is bad and the video card is good. If the Borrowed monitor does not work then the video card inside the computer is bad.

If the computer did not complete the boot process then try the steps below.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the computer is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.

Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

My Acer Aspire M1201 Desktop will not boot. I turn the power on but all I get is the Acer logo followed by "No Signal" and the monitor goes blank. I keep hoping I will finally hear the beep noise...


Hi,

If you are seeing the Acer logo on boot up then the machine is working. The problem will be your graphics drivers being corrupt.
Try starting the machine in Safe Mode. To do this repeatedly tap the F8 key as it's just starting up. It should take you to an advanced menu with Safe Mode at the top, select that with the cursor keys.

If it allows you to boot in safe mode then wait until Windows loads and then right click on My Computer/Computer, select manage from the sub menu and then Device Manager.

Click on Display Adapters and uninstall the drivers. When its done unistalling the drivers restart the machine in normal mode. It should boot into Windows. If it lets you boot into Windows I suggest that you download and install the latest drivers from Acer's support website.

If you need anymore help please post back.

Good luck and regards.

When i turn on computer screen is blank and the hard drive light is a solid amber for a minute then nothing....bad video card? Does same on two different monitors.


Video is on-board the motherboard on this model BUT you can buy (or borrow) a video card pretty cheap. When the computer starts up, do you hear any 'beeps', etc.? Might be something other than the video card...

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.

Monitor won't stay on. Error message comes up that says "no input signal", then monitor goes out.


Problem with the monitor, monitor cable, or video output. For monitor, if you have more than one input, make sure it's set to the correct one. Try a different cable. Try a different monitor. Check your video card settings--if you see the BIOS bootup screen while it's coming up then the Windows splash screen, then monitor blanks out, it's a Windows display setting. Boot into safe mode, then change settings--
  • Turn the computer on or Restart the computer
  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected (the top option)
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.

MONITOR GOES BLANK


Did you recently change or install a program that would affect the resolution and card output? Try booting into safe mode by holding the "shift" key during boot. From there right-click on the desktop and hit 'properties'-> 'display properties' -> 'settings' , check your resolution and drop it to 800x600 and then reboot. If everything goes back in normally make sure you have the right windows drivers for your video card. You can also check the driver version and settings while you're in safe mode. Sometimes the windows update drivers can act screwy and I would recommend getting them directly from your card manufacturer.
