Try opening up your computer first, and reseating the motherboard ram which possibly may be causing the no post situation. If that does not work, check to see if there is a graphics card on the motherboard. If there is, uninstall it and plug it into the onboard video connector.

If any of these situations are not applicable to you , and you do have built in video, its possible its port went out. Your fixable solution in this scenario would be to buy a video card for your computer and plug it into the motherboard expansion slots (Theres currently AGP ,PCI , PCIe x 1 , PCIe x 16)

If you are unsure of what you have on your motherboard visit www.bustype.com and print out a picture of the different slots, and then compare it to what you have in your motherboard so you can take it to the store and choose a product that is appropriate for your desktop.

Got an acer aspire ax3812 tower is on but screen stays blank got any ideas


Change the internal Ram sticks. This can cause a "Hold" in the BIOS boot process, thereby stopping the machine from going to the Operating System. Hope this helps.

Moniter reads no signal but tower light is on


Have you changed your resolution recently? Have you installed any programs recently? Have you made any hardware changes lately? Make sure the monitor is firmly connected to the tower and to the back of the monitor. Is the monitor plugged into the wall outlet? If you have two video ports on the back of the tower make sure you are plugged into the correct one, you may also try switching to the other port. Try another monitor if you are able to or try the monitor on another tower to see if you can isolate the problem to the monitor. Do you get anything appearing on the monitor when you first start the computer up? Have you been using a video card or onboard graphics?

System appears to come up, but the monitor is like it is not receiving a signal from the computer. Monitor works, tried on another system. have tried two different monitors on computer, same thing. also I...


see if one of the little wires inside the wire end from the monitor that goes into the tower is bent or messed up. If one of those are missing, the whole monitor is messed up. Also look on the back of the tower for the |O| picture. It should be blue.

Possible monitor or graphics card malfunction


The monitor is bad. The flashing is telling you that something inside the monitor has gone out. If it is still under warranty they should either fix your monitor or give you a replacement. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.

Acer monitor does not show anything except acer


"have three and same problem on different computers"
- you have 3 what? If you tried 3 different computers with the same monitor, your monitor might be bad and need repair. If your computer works fine with a different monitor, then it is your monitor that is the problem.

I do not recommend hat you attempt to fix monitors on your own.

Monitor Acer Problem


I agree it isn?t the monitor but I would suspect the video card you are connecting it to or the PC itself. Generally if a monitor doesn?t detect a video signal it will go into hibernation mode, typically displaying a no signal warning and changing the LED color from green to amber. When you start the computer is anything displaying at all? Are you sure the PC is powering up and booting?
