Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have an acer, and the monitor and tower are hooked up, but the screen shows no signal and then fades to black. I read the previous answer for checking the source button, but I do not know where the source button is located

The could be a few problems here:

\015\012Unfortunatly I do not have a direct solution for you other than you needing to do some troubleshooting:
\015\012
\015\012Make sure that there is power to your PC as well as monitor.
\015\012
\015\012Remove your current monitor as place another to see if the problem recurs.
\015\012
\015\012If using onboard VGA then try placing a graphics card in your machine and test it from there.
\015\012
\015\012Remove your memory and place another, if you dont have anything else then simply reset your memory chips by removing them and placing it back in your PC.
