Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have an Acer X1700 desktop - 3 days old by the way. Runs Vista Home Premium. 1 day after arrival, pushed power button. Monitor light is blue, flashes the Acer logo, then says "no signal" and blue light turns yellow. The fan in the tower which operates very quietly, normally, is very loud at that point. Have been able to power down the tower and the monitor, unplug all from the wall, hold the power button on the monitor down for 20 seconds or so, turn it all back on, and then it boots just fine


Answers :

I would get ahold of acer. It should be under warrenty. sounds like a hard drive issue to Me. Just because it is new doesn't mean it was right from the start. My neighbour had the same problem with his acer. I told him to but a dell or hp. good luck.
