Your motherboard backup battery is gone.
This is a watch type battery mounted on the motherboard that powers the chip (CMOS) that retains basic information (BIOS) about your computer while it is turned off.
The battery is gone and not holding the time and date.
The battery is very easy to change, do you have a tower computer or a laptop and are you OK with looking inside the case for the battery?

Computer will not turn off

Which operating system >???
Learning how to use all of the settings and what they mean can help extend the life and speed of a computer.
The sleep, hibernate and shutdown settings can help save energy when your computer is not in use.
These modes are used when you are away from the computer for an extended period of time. The sleep mode will store any open information on the hard drive while the computer switches to a lower power level, but it allows you to turn the computer on and resume work where you left off.
Changing these settings in your computer is easy.
Click on the computer's start button.
Find the Control Panel option and select it with your mouse.
Select Power Options.
You will see several options.
There should be an option that is already highlighted or selected.
This is the current setting on your computer. Click on Change Plan Settings.
Your current settings will be displayed. Click on Change Advanced Power Settings.

Choose settings. Click on the plus signs in the new dialog box.
This will display any options that are available.
You will be able to change your sleep, hibernate, and shutdown settings.
For instance, you can choose to have your computer hibernate at a certain time, or even wake up at a certain time.
If you have a laptop, it will also give you the option to set these while plugged in, or if on battery mode.
Click on the Restore Plan Defaults button if you want to reset all changes back to the default setting for your computer.

Click the "OK" button when you are done selecting your settings.
Select the Control Panel box that still shows your basic power settings.
Click on the "Save Changes" button.
Exit the Control Panel.
Your settings are now saved and are in effect.

I turned off the power on my Acer Power 1000 desktop and now it won't turn back on. This has happened before but after leaving it overnight I could turn it back on. It's been 3 days now and I still can't...

You might want to run setup and see if that is way off. If so, replace the nickel cell battery on the motherboard. That saves the setup information, date and time etc. That goes, you never know. They only cost about $4

Date resets back to 2001 after being powered off

Try changing the time and date in the BIOS and then save the changes and exit. Then turn the computer off.

Wait a few minutes then turn the computer back on and if the date resets back to 2001 then that means the battery on the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced cause that means the BIOS isn't keeping information in memory.

The battery you would need is a cr2032 battery. Here is an enlarged image of the battery Im talking about:

Try unplugging and opening the PC and removing the mainboard battery. *It's about the size of a quarter, a little thicker though" Hit the power button about 5 times. (Mind you this will reset ther board to factory settings and you will have to go into set-up and set the time back) plug the pc back up and you may be in buisness.
Hope this helps!

No signal to monitor

Sounds like a bios issue. Check your manual for resetting your bios to default parameters. Good luck.
