Question Acer Predator XB3 no signal ?

Jan 19, 2021
Hi everyone,

So a few weeks ago I bought an Acer Predator XB3 (Predator XB273KGP) and I had a few problems with the monitor not waking up from sleep mode. Now I make sure to turn off the screen first when I put the pc in sleep mode and when waking up I make sure to turn on the pc before turning on the screen. When I do it that way there are no problems. Annoying but it just needs te become a habit. If the monitor does give a "no signal" error, then I need to restart the pc.

I have my pc connected to the monitor with 2 displayport cables, the ones that were included.
I also have my ps4 connected to the monitor with hmdi. I manually change the input of the monitor by using the monitors menu when I want to play the ps4. This was not a problem at all until now.

Now when I change back from hdmi to dp I also get a "no signal" message and need to restart the pc.
Does anybody know what is wrong and how to fix this?
