Hi, i have a acer desktop computer bought from currys, one of the cheaper ones with integrated graphics, over the past couple of weeks it as, on a couple of occasions when turned on, stayed on the acer screen on my moniter.... before loading windows. it has got to the point now where the acer logo will not dissapear from the moniter, and consiquently windows will not load. the computer it self sounds fine when i switch it on, no beeps, smoke etc, i have tried using the f12 button, well all of the buttons but nothing happens. It got to the point yesterday where i almost stripped my other pc down trying different components ie, hard drive , ram chips, graphics card, but nothing happened still stayed on the acer screen, i have also tried unplugging everything form the motherboard except the fans to see if it would show an error but still just the acer screen came on with a messaege no signal input before the acer logo stayed on. please can you help me, many thanks paul

Acer monitors all display the ACER logo when you turn them on. There are one of three most likely issues with the system.
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.
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.
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.
Has your monitor worked for it in the past? This may be a stupid question, have you also tried to use your monitor with another computer?
It's possible your graphics controller is out, have you checked the cables insides to see if any wires are bent? Or have you tried to use another cable for the monitor to tower connection?
If you have done all of the above and the monitor works with another computer, it's possible your GPU is out :(
If your GPU is out, you can buy a new one in it's place and it will plug into a PCI slot, chances are your graphics card is integrated.
Do you get any beep codes on the computer? Another odd chance could be the computer itself is actually dead, even if a computer is dead a motherboard can still be active since electricity can still flow through it.
I hope this helps. x: I hope your problem is resolved sooner than later.
You should be more specific next time - is it a laptop or a desktop computer, do you have additional graphics card, etc? I've already googled for a PC type. You have a desktop PC which comes with integrated graphics. It has two video ports onboard - VGA and HDMI. Which one did you try? It could also be that you have additional graphics card installed. In this case integrated graphics card is turned off automatically. Sometimes people accidentally connect their display to the wrong port - you should check that. It could also be, that you don't see any video output, because of faulty hardware like RAM, CPU or the Motherboard. Do you hear any beeps or other sounds during startup?
The Video (Graphics) Card inside the computer is not working. The fact that the monitor displays NO Input Signal shows that the monitor is working. Try connecting another monitor to the computer and you'll get the same NO Input Signal messaged because the monitor is not receiving a signal from the computer as an input source. Also you can try your monitor on another computer just to validate that it is ok.
The simple answer is because you are playing a rather modern game on a computer that is not provisioned for playing modern high-end games.It looks like this model of computer includes an integrated Intel graphics chip with only 128 MB at the most. Intel integrated graphics chips are notorious for not being very good with games (unless the game si 5 years old or more). To play modern games, you need a computer with a discrete graphics adapter, and bare minimum 5000 MB to 1 or more GB of memory on the graphics card. Higher end systems might have several GB of on-card memory (it's been a while since I have checked).
Unfortunately it is not possible in a lower end computer. Lower end computers have integrated video cards on the motherboard. High end gaming laptops typically will have a replaceable graphics cards but generally run over $1000 (for the laptop)
Anything with Intel graphics chips are so so terribly sub par to even the cheapest discrete graphics cards I'm afraid.
You can build a budge gaming desktop for around $700.
Comment back if you have any questions.
As per Acer this computer model has a Integrated SiS Mirage Graphic onboard card or a seperate AGP 8x Add-on Card (selected models). It looks like the game you are trying to install requires advanced graphics card.
Please specify the game you are trying to install and also specify if you have a AGP card installed (and what is the make and model of the same).
If you do not have a AGP card installed , we can check the game specification and try to install a AGP card and check with it.
Yes you need to disable the integrated card in DEVICE MANAGER---go to START> right click on MY COMPUTER>PROPERTIES>HARDWARE>DEVICE MANAGER then choose display adapters and double click the device and at the bottomchoose "Disable this device"
