Re: Blank screen after Bios solved ?
There is a conflict between this card and something else in the computer. It could be with other integrated video card present in the motherboard. If there are other cards of any type installed in your computer you should remove them first and try the ATI alone. Otherwise you might have a damaged ATI card, or a trully non compatible motherboard.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Acer Blank screen at startupMy Acer Aspire One notebook goes to a blank screen at startup. BIOS Recovery System
awful as it sounds, this is a fairly common problem with Acer Aspire
notebooks and it sounds like you have an issue with the BIOS - as long
as you can see the power button and hear the fans running to indicate
that it is not a power issue. Luckily, these notebooks come with a
built-in BIOS recovery system that should get you up and running without
damaging or losing any of your files. Know that doing this may void
your warranty, so if you have a warranty, you should talk to Acer
directly. Follow these steps EXACTLY, and it should work for you:
Format a USB memory stick to FAT. Make sure it is bootable.
Put the FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file in the root directory of the memory stick.
Rename the BIOS file: ZG5IA32.FD. It is important that you get the file name exactly right.
Remove the drive.
Turn the Acer off, but make sure you have a working battery and AC power connected.
Insert the USB memory stick into a USB port.
Press Fn+Esc and press the Power button at the same time. After a few seconds, release Fn+Esc.
The power button should be blinking. Press it once.
At this point, the BIOS will flash - don't press anything or
interrupt this process. If you've done it right, the power button will
stop flashing and the notebook will reboot. When it is all done,
everything should be set to reboot.
Because you have an Acer Aspire One and you are getting the blank
boot screen, I'm betting that this will solve your problem. If you are
still having problems after following these directions exactly, then let
us know and we can try to troubleshoot hardware or screen issues that
may be the culprit.
Dear user, if you are trying to access bios for setup of CD ROM as a first boot device and having problem to access the bios then here is an advice for you.
most of notebooks or systems have a special key assigned to select the boot device at startup without entering in bios setup. therefore please hit function keys at startup like F9,F11,F12 when you start system. F9 and F12 keys are most commonly used for boot device selection.
check the BIOS setup screen, when you get the ACER screen press F2 or F10 or the DEL or END or ESC key one of those will get you into the bIOS SETUP. Once there revise the boot order, make sure the CD is first to boot then HDD. Also review to see if the BIOS recosgnized the HDD. the symptom you are describing may be a bad HDD.
reinstall os.bios should be preset to boot from cd/dvd but if not power on then press delete key or escape key till bios loads-in boot opt. select cd/dvd drive first boot.put os disk in drive and restart when asked to press key to boot from cd do so.follow inst. instructions.after insall detects previous version of xp select repair (r key) and follow inst. should solve startup problem without losing data.if not reinstall os but select leave files intact instead of format or you will lose all files.
Seems data corruption on critical files. Download my upload HDD Regenerator v1.51.iso (less than 2MB), burn onto CD (as image, not as data!). Boot from this CD and scan the whole Hard drive to recover any data corupption (may take nights!). You may need to change to Boot from CD first in BIOS.
It could also be that the video card is not compatible with this monitor. After the pc boots up, can you get into windows? Does the monitor always go out at a specific time on boot? Say for example; you boot the pc, windows startup splash screen comes on; screen does a quick flash and goes blank. Then it maybe the BIOS setting for the video. Try changing the IRQ setting. You could also try putting the video card in another slot. Do you have the manual for the motherboard?
