|Hi Mkirkland, Acer have a support webpage which may help:-|
I would not suspect the disk at this stage.
If *NOTHING* is appearing on your screen, I would suspect that first.
You advise you hooked up another moniter which also showed *NOTHING*. But this could be misleading, as are you sure it is recognised, by just connecting?
Please advise back on progress.
Good Luck - Keep us posted.
