Hello

 

My Acer LED Technology 24" monitor just went to "No signal" during game play. Any ideas?

 

I know including all information about my PC is helpfull. I am hoping you have a utility to run and show you for that :)

Is it possible you bumped the source button?  Have you tried powering down both the computer and the monitor and then powering them back on?

 

A utility isn't of much use if you can't see what's going on.

No button was bumped and that is how I got it back up and running. I tried the unplug and hold power button for 30 secs but that did not work.  This thing has been running screwy lately. Last week it powered completely off, PC and all. I am afraid something is dying and I would like to know what before it does :)

It did it again. I m now on my laptop. Help! :)  My PC is still running btw.

 

A restart fixed it again. Can someone please tell me if this is my graphics card going out or monitor? They are both 6 months old and within warranty.

Check the power cord on the monitor to see if it is loose on either end.

And check whatever sort of cable you use to connect video - VGA, HDMI or DVI - at both ends, the monitor and the computer. If possible try a different cable. If you don;t have a spare of your own see if you can borrow one from a friend.

 

Also, if your computer has on-board graphics as well as your video card try using that. If the output from that works but the output from your video card doesn't this is good evidence that the graphics card is faulty for some reason.

Found the problem. The fan on the GPU is not running.  Time to RMA I guess.
