Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Acer desktop with no monitor output.

\015 Acer Aspire M3200 desktop\015\012Ati Radeon graphics card\015\012AMD processor\015\0121GB memory\015\012\015\012The desktop has no monitor output. When turned on the machine looks as though it is working fine, makes no funny noises - although you can never hear it when it reaches the windows vista log on screen. When a VGA cable is plugged into either of the ports (be it on the graphics card or mother board), there is no output from it.\015

Answers :

It is incredibly difficult to trouble shoot something like this even if it was right in front of me it can be hard. You really need to have an assortment of spare components for testing purposes.
There are somethings you can check though. First look carefully at both ends of the monitor cable. Check the plug ends to make sure that none of the pins are broken or bent. The ideal thing would be to have a spare cable. If you has a monitor output on the back of your computer aside from the video card you may need to select which source you wish to use in your bios\\set-up. But without the monitor it is impossible to change this setting. The problem is there is no way to be certain if it is in fact a bad card. If you know someone with a computer try using they're monitor and cable. If you have the same issue then you may need to get a new video card for it.
I wish I could be more help.
Ensure the monitor is on. If so, can you see ANYTHING while the computer is booting up? Even the first BIOS screen?
