Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have purchased a new Acer computer and Acer monitor, however when I turn them on they come up with the message 'no channel'. I have tried pairing up my old monitor with new computer and vice versa. On my old monitor the message comes up saying 'no video input'. I can not see where I may have made an error with leads - I'm pretty sure I haven't. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the reply. Where would I find the video card? I have checked the pins on the cable but don't see any problems. The cable works in my old pc. I assume you mean did I need to load the computer with programmes, no it came with Vista and enterprise 2007.

    if you open the left side of f the computer you will see the card that the monitor hooks too just take the it and aclean it off a eraser works well for this and wipe it off good and then reinsert it and hook everything up and try to boot if nothing is working then you will probably want to get a new one walmart normally carries these or a computer store about 60 - 130 bucks

I have a cable not connected message on my screen even though I have all cables connected. I have a Acer X203H.

You might have a bad video card. Most of the new computers come with an "integrated" video card, meaning most of the components are 1 piece.

If you have another cable, try that, same with another monitor. Then if you are able, purchase a video card and test to see if that fixes the problem.

And if you have a warranty, this should be covered.

Acer Monitor Doesn't Receive Signal From Computer

can you test your monitor on another computer to verify the monitor is at fault? If the monitor is at fault its time for a new one, factory warranties on monitors are usually 1 year unless you purchased an extended warranty.Otherwise repair is usually more costly than buying a new one.
