I have a AcerPower F2 computer here and when I boot it up, the lights indicate that the computer is going through the motions of booting up, but there is no video, not even pre-post. It has video on board. I tried to use a different video card, but still no post. It does not have an AGP slot, but I tried a PCI video card. Do you have suggestions?

Re: Computer boots up but no video display.
If it has onboard video and you've added a video card, sometimes you need to disable the onboard video in the BIOS as it won't send output to both when they are there. I would try a different monitor and eliminate that as a possibility also.

have you tried booting from last known good config , and if you flash your bios by unplugging yr pc and removing the cmos battery for 10-15 mins and then replacing it back then power then turn it on that shud do the trick other wise you have a hardware issue that can only be sorted by replacing the hardware
Do you have video going to your monitor? If not the beeps mean you have a bad memory stick in there. If you have video the beeps are the bios telling you that its not set right. More than likely you have it set to run too fast. Go into your bios find where the processor speed is located and choose a lower freq. rate. Its probably set too high for the memory you have.
If your PC doesn't boot up using the hard drive, you can check that by looking for the F2 or F12 displayed on the screen during boot up. Then start pressing F2 or F12 quickly to get setup.
In setup follow the directions and set your "boot device" to "hard drive"
Hope this is what you needed.
It seems that your first boot was on cd or dvd, or may be your hard drive did not detect, to check both of them go to BIOS set up by pressing F2 or Delete on your keyboard to enter set up. When you are in set up mode go to Boot menu (if you can not see boot menu go to advance). In a boot menu select HDD as a first boot and Cd or DVD as a second boot, if you can not find your HDD it means that your HDD did not detect, and you need to replace it with a new one. Hope it gives you a solution
reset boot formate to f12 but first lets get that blank screen off keep pushing f2 f2 f2 f2 thre or four times intell first page starts up then push f2 then use arrow keys on key board and at bottom booting log you shoud be set up on f2 change boot log f12 then pressf10 to save restart computer then when computer starts up push f12 then run windows under d: drive the it will ask you start windows run windows from disc or trouble shoot go to run windows after that you shoud be ok.
This indicates that your computer is configured to boot on the floppy drive. 1. At the start of the computer Press F2 2. Go to the Boot Device Configuration. 3. Enable Hard Disk Boot Priority. 4. Set the First Boot Priority to Hard Disk 5. Save and Exit.
Please let me know of the outcome. Thank you and regards.
If you look at the monitor there will be an led light on the front that is always orange or yellow when the computer is off but still connected to the monitor. This led will turn green when the computer boots up, sometimes even showing a "no signal" display before boot. If you see the 'command line' text during the boot process (video info, BIOS version, POST text, etc) then the monitor is being recognized by the computer. If that text goes away and the led goes back to orange then it is a driver or operating system problem. Pressing whatever key is prompted at the lower left of the display, if you have a display, like F1, F2, F10, Delete or whatever will get you to the setup program and all is good with the display/computer connection and a green light will stay on. If you never get that green led light then either the video card is bad or not seated properly
