    Black screen

    Thanks, a couple of quotes, an explanation of what we can see and an attachment; This only if the monitor info given is correct, the only way of testing the onboard video using your Acer Nitro VG240Y would be by using the VGA port on the MB and the VGA port on the said monitor, this because...

    Sorry, should have asked for the same info regarding the screen that you are connecting to.

    Black screen

    The one beep suggests that your PC hardware is passing the power on self test and that the problem is external, the video cable and/or the screen being the only two things that it could be. This supports what has been said above. Can you post the correct MB details for us so we can check the...

    Black screen

    Does your MB have an onboard speaker like the one in the attachment - does the computer normally beep once when you first boot up. If the onboard video is also not working your add on GPU may be ok. NB: Always best to list everything that you have tried in your OP ;)

    Sorry but no such a MB, Gigabyte make the AORUS range of board, no matter as we have the CPU details and it does provide video so your MB should do as well. Remove the add on video card from the PCI-E slot on the MB, connect your screen to the appropriate video port on the MB, reseat the RAM in...

    Second monitor suddenly not working

    It would appear so if the monitor works when connected to one GPU but not the other. Your options include getting the suspect GPU tested by a tech or if you are prepared to chance any testing yourself, swap the problem GPU into the working GPUs slot on your motherboard to see if the card works...

    No Display and PC Shutting Off

    First thing that I would do is get yourself a good quality brand PSU that is known to be working, anything Bronze efficiency rated and 300W or above will do for testing. Aerocool are on the avoid list when it comes to PSUs, see example thread here

    Second monitor suddenly not working

    Have you tried connecting the GPU end of the video cable from the monitor that is working to the GPU that is being connected to the second monitor that is not giving any display.

    We could do with knowing the brand and model name or number of the CPU, motherboard and the power supply so that we can check the specs of each, this will tell us if you have the option of onboard video and if your power supply is likely to be the cause of the issue/s.

    This HP Laptop that I posted about a couple of days ago

    Hello isteppenwolf, A clean install is just that and there would be nothing on the drive other than Windows 10 until you install the system drivers, benefit of doing this is you would still have the recovery partition on the drive for any future emergency + there would be no HP bloatware...

    No HDMI signal despite HDMI cable being connected

    Sorry but have to ask, are you making sure that you are not connecting the screen to a HDMI port on the MB instead of the GPU. The “HDMI No signal” message on the monitor means that the monitor itself is ok and that the problem is the source of the video signal or the cable that is meant to...

    My computer randomly crashes after i installed a new gpu

    Can you post the brand and model name or number of the PSU. To try and rule out the GPU as the cause, have you tried leaving the new hard drive connected, removing the new add on GPU from the MB and using the appropriate video port on the MB to see if the PC still has issues.
