Having problems with your Acer PC Desktops ?

I have an acer t160 & the tower will attempt to start up but the monitor wont start. we have changed to a different monitor, but the computer does the same thing.


Answers :

Try opening up your computer first, and reseating the motherboard ram which possibly may be causing the no post situation. If that does not work, check to see if there is a graphics card on the motherboard. If there is, uninstall it and plug it into the onboard video connector.

If any of these situations are not applicable to you , and you do have built in video, its possible its port went out. Your fixable solution in this scenario would be to buy a video card for your computer and plug it into the motherboard expansion slots (Theres currently AGP ,PCI , PCIe x 1 , PCIe x 16)

If you are unsure of what you have on your motherboard visit www.bustype.com and print out a picture of the different slots, and then compare it to what you have in your motherboard so you can take it to the store and choose a product that is appropriate for your desktop.
