Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Black screen on startup. The monitor is okay, but remains off when I boot up my acer m1610. I can hear one bop (means okay) and run, but without video. Sometimes it runs with with video, sometimes not... I've replaced the two orignal transcend 2gb ddr2 800 (memtest+ was awfully red !!) with 1gb kingston ddr2 533 that works perfectly on another pc.


Answers :

Does the monitor give picture and stay on when connected to another pc? Also, does the monitor function properly in safe mode? If so, your video adapter may be set to display a resolution beyond the capabilities of your monitor. try this:
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Download the latest drivers for your videocard but do not install it yet.
  2. \015\012
  3. Boot into safe mode and uninstall any video card/driver software installed on your pc
  4. \015\012
  5. Go to device manager, expand video adapters, right click on all video adapters and uninstall (uninstall driver too if prompted)
  6. \015\012
  7. Reboot normally. If you followed the above steps correctly, the pc will automatically re-detect your video card and install a generic driver for it.
  8. \015\012
  9. Now install the video drivers you downloaded in step 1.
  10. \015\012
  11. That should do it. Let me know if this works or not.
