I just bought a new PC and i tried it in the store it worked fine but when i used it back home and plugged it into the monitor it didn't display anything all i heard from the computer is 1 short beep and then the windows welcome sound.
BTW my motherboard is an acer q67h2-am

try using another monitor, 1 beep means everything is ok and your components have booted up fine. I figure its a problem with your monitor or monitor cable. Dont worry, your pc is fine...

No, its not that. Ok do one thing, try connecting your pc to your tv via hdmi and see if it works. And what port are you using on your monitor, is it dvi or hdmi or display port? and do check in your monitor settings menu that the port is selected or not.

Yes and since i tried the pc in the store before i bought it i think the vga port doesn't work and i might have to buy a dvi cable

Do check it with the dvi cable and check to see if the cable is properly connected to the graphics card and not the motherboard port; also see if there isnt any loose parts.
