Was you display acting strange before this. If so that could be a internal problem with the display (this is a common thing for older CRT monitor) the good news it can be repaired.
Ok that's the worse case Try booting in safe mode and then see if the lets you view you monitor.
If Yes cool If No
Try to unplug the monitor ALL plugs then you can try and different monitor (if you have one) and if that too doesn't work then you at least you know where the problem is.Now try replugging in the OG
Still no luck
then try from another computer go on-line find model get a (driver)
copy it to a disc and install that . You will have to go into BIOS to configure you boot sectors.

Cannot see desktop

Hi Not sure if you mean no display or just missing start menu, if former doe you have a light on the monitor, amber means no signal from PC, check the vga/dvi cable is secure or change for another if you have one, if green after boot do you see any display on start up then it goes blank (try starting in safe mode to see if you get the display.

If the later option, can see the screen but no task bar and start button at the bottom of the screen try pressing the Windows key on the keyboard, this should bring up the menu option.

Vista desktop does not complete start up?

It may be the monitor. If the monitor power light is on, or yellow, or flashing, but nothing displays, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor needs replaced.

My acer aspire one notebook doesnt work. i turned on pressing the "on" button. There nothing in the monitor. the only thing I see working is the power on button is lighted. and i hear soft sound...

Plug in another monitor to it ,serial port on the side and see if it comes up on it . Antther way to tell if it just your monitor feel the bottom and see if you can tell if the hard drive or the processor fan is running

When i start the computer the monitor doesnt go and the red light indicating an error apears. what that can be please?

Dear User,

Please refix the is display cable properly and check if the issues resolves.

Kindly check if any beep sound comes. To check is the system board is fine. Please press the Num Lock for 2-3 times and check if it responds(Led On/Off)
To check the monitor status, please remove the display cable which is coming from monitor and connected with System(Cpu), if it displays the message on screen then it passes the monitor test and indicates that Monitor is fine.

Please share the result.

My system is does not display

Aside from the obvious, to check the power switch on your monitor, check the power connection to the monitor in back of monitor and at power source, check power source is good, and check to see that the video cable from the monitor is firmly connected to the computer.
If this series of checks reveals nothing, you could try: Shut down computer, unplug the video cable from the back of the computer start computer, then shut down and replug it in, then rebooting your system.
If this fails, you need to check the monitor on another working system or check another monitor on your system and determine whether the monitor or your system settings are at fault.
Let us know what you discover.

Possibly 2 reasons:
1. Driver/hardware/software/application problem; or
2. Virus/malware.

You can consider:
1.1 Run in last known good configuration that worked (by pressing F8 to display menu choices prior to Windows boot);
1.2 In safe mode, Start/Run/type "msconfig" minus the quotes, uncheck everything in the Startup tab, reboot;
1.3 In Safe Mode, run your antivirus or run Kaspersky online virus scanner or anything similar;
1.4 Download/install/run AdAware or anything similar;
1.5 Check you Control Panel for devices with yellow or red markings;
1.6 Set your BIOS/CMOS to conservative/default/best performance settings (normally press Del on powering up);
1.8 Check/Clean your hardware: video card, memory, fan/blowers etc;
1.9 Booting without any USB devices plugged in;

Worst case scenario, use a recovery CD that came with your computer or in the absence of that, reinstall your OS using the 2nd "Repair" option.

Hope this be f help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
