No signal to monitor

Question: No signal to monitor

Hello,
I have a pc build and have been using it for a few months now and for some reason signal is not found on my monitor. I have tried different cables and even taking out the graphics card. I?m not hearing any beeping and everything seems to be connected correctly. I have a gigabyte graphics card but can?t remember the name of it. I also have a MSI b350m gaming pro mother board.

Answer: No signal to monitor

Without a detailed description of the hardware(processor, graphic card, power supply, etc.) in your PC and a description of the monitor connected to it and what Windows version is running in your PC, you make it difficult or impossible to help you.

Sorry for the long text, I'm trying to send as much information i have.

Hello forums!
A few years ago i built a new gaming pc because i wanted to be able to play high quality games. But since day 1 i've had nothing but problems. Whenever i play one of my high quality games such as "Assassins Creed, Tomb Raider, Battlefield 3 or Primal Carnage" the monitor goes completely blank showing a "no signal to monitor" sign after gaming for between 5 minutes to up to 2-3 hours. The monitor sometimes also shows different color stripes either for examples: orange, pink or grey. The sound of my friends on skype usually keeps going for about 20 seconds before going silent, the sound of the game shuts off instantly or goes in a loop or starts with a loud buzzing sound. The fans and the LED's on my pc are still going but i can't control anything on the pc making me have to force restart my pc on the power button.
I've been on this forum before talking to this guy who is helping me but he's been quite busy lately so i need some extra help.
I've updated all drivers to latest, i never overheat, the GPU does not go over 51C when gaming and CPU never goes over 51C either.
I've upgraded my 650W powersupply to a 850W power supply and is one of the highest rated best performance power supplies you can find.
I tried to RMA my graphics card but they found nothing wrong with it and sent it back.

My monitor (ViewSonic VA720) is set to turn off after 20 min in the WinXP Power Options Properties. The monitor goes into standby correctly, but will will oftentime not come back on after resuming. It will just show a black screen and the lights on the monitor indicate it's in standby. Pressing the power button on the monitor seems to have to effect. When turning it back on it will say signal out of range, and then go back into standby. My system is:

ABIT KX7 333R
AthlonXP 2200+
MSI 6600GT 128MB AGP (Driver 163.75)
Windows XP SP2

The only way to fix this is to reboot the machine, which is not always convenient. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hi everyone
We've just picked up a second hand PC & Monitor that we saw booted up and working before we paid for it.
We've connected it with all the same cables that the chap gave us - but the monitor is saying that it can't get a signal (VGA no signal) and then goes into sleep mode.
It's a Compaq Presario - please can anyone give any idea as to what is possibly wrong?
thanks!

Answer:just bought a PC and monitor - monitor can't get signal

Check the rear of the PC. You might have two connections there. You need to connect to the port that's on the horizontally fixed graphics card and not the vertical motherboard's connection.

I've suddenly gotten this problem: Return to my pc after a while and find that the monitor has gone black and pressing the power button gives the message "No signal". Moving the mouse or pressing buttons don't result in a wake-up. The hard disk lamp is blinking so it seems it's working (in this case video capture).
I have turned off the screen saver and I don't use put computer/HD to sleep.
Anyone having a clue?

Answer:No signal to monitor - monitor has gone black

I would probably say that there's a part that's burned out inside it. It's a specific part that I don't actually remember the name of. Don't know how long you've had it but I know that it happened to one of my Hannspree monitors. If I were you I'd Google the make of your monitor going black because it's not technically a Windows issue. As soon as I did a little research I determined that I could send it to the manufacturer to be repaired luckily it only initially cost me $50 and I made a mistake sending it Fed Ex.
**Actually. Can you get the menu up for the monitor pressing the menu button on the monitor itself? If not there's a problem in the monitor like I mentioned.
Having two monitors obviously is great because you'll know it's not the graphics card.

So at my friend's house, whenever it rains or bad cloudy day, there is no WiFi signal sending from main floor to 2nd floor. So I recommend them to install a Linksys RE6400 range extender to boost the signal, on the existing Linksys AC1200 unit, and the setup of that extender is wacky. It somehow works after a while, but w/o the 5GHz band. But the other day when they re-plug in that extender, there is no signal (even on a sunny day)

So today, I try to help them to re-initialize that RE6400 by going thru the instruction, totally no signal(on a sunny day). Now, assuming it's a defective DOA unit, is there some range extender that is high quality ? And has a nice and simple setup software? (just in case pushing the WPS button doesn't work)

And more importantly, should we unplug the extender when you don't use it? Or are you suppose to always leave it plug in? If you unplug it, would you lost all the setting on that extender?
 

Answer:no WiFi signal during rainy day and signal booster doesn't work, & what's the good signal extender?

Ouch!
Use a wire. Extend WiFi via remotely placed access points.

When I boot up my system, the monitor does not receive a signal unless I flip the rocker switch on the back panel at the power supply, off and on again, then it will receive the signal and boot up. However that is an improper shut down. I have tested other power supplies and the monitor, as well as checked the connections and pins.

Faulty Motherboard, I have seen this occur, if you flip the power switch before windows starts (most BIOS POST's in 10-15 seconds) then it isnt an improper shutdown.

You can swap out the PSU and ensure all your cards and peripherals are seated correctly, but I think the Mobo is a definate loss.

My buddy recently purchased parts for his new comp.
We put it together and everything seemed to work fine...we started installing windows XP on it only to realize that we need SATA controllers for his RAID hard drive.
We went on another computer and created the needed floppy only to come back to locked up system.
The computer boots up but it doesn't go into any sort of screen... in fact the monitor displays NO SIGNAL.
We checked all the cables...no bent pins...no motherboard beeps!!!!
Replaced graphics card...no luck...unpluged/pluged all of the things except taking out the CPU...nothing.

I should mention that we frequently were taking the floppy drive in and out of the computer because we had one floppy drive and would go back and forth between his old computer and this new one.

It worked fine. We shut it down, turn it back up with no response.
Please give us some suggestions.
Thanks.


His components:

CPU: AMD Athlon XP 3000
MB: Asus A7V880
RAM: 1GB of Crucial (checked motherboard manual for compatability and
it was fine)
Graphics Card: Radeon 9800Pro 256 mb
Case: some sort of gamers case with a 420W power supply
Hard Drive: Western Digital 80 gig

Question: No Monitor Signal

Actually shut my P.C down for once over new year to give it a breather and now if I try to start it up as before I'm getting a message on the Monitor saying No Connection Check Signal.Heres what I know for definite. No beep when switched on. All lights working, Fans Working. Unplug monitor from Mains then start up it works. Switch monitor of with button on front of monitor it works. i've read it could be this that and the other but its gets a bit technical after that for me so any help greatly appreciated many thanks

Answer:No Monitor Signal

The fact you get a message "No Signal" shows the monitor is working.You are missing the signal from the PC to the monitor.No beeps seems to rule out memory and graphics card problems which is usally the case. Check the cable fron the PC to the monitor is not loose or has bent pins.

If I switch the monitor off when booting the p.c it works. Checked cables and heres my novice head coming in, does the cable from the monitor have 14 pins going into the 15 pin because according the the monitor handbook the missing pin is the no connection pin.

There is a blank on the male monitor plug 2nd row 2nd or 3rd in.I am a little confused with what your are writing.Are you saying that the PC does not run with the monitor plugged in but will run with the monitor unplugged? How is the monitor powered? Is it wired through the PC? that is is there a single connection to the mains and the monitor loops out of the PC?If this is so try running the monitor direct from the mains on a normal 3 pin plug.You may have a short of some kind in the base unit.

Question: No Monitor Signal

Ok, I am new at building my own computer, but I have done just this. I properly attached all of the wiring and everything is connected right. My problem is that when I turn on the computer I get a no signal message. The monitor itself works fine, as does the card. The motherboard is a SiS 648FX, and the card is an ATI Radeon 9200 AGP. Should the system boot right up to bios on the first start, or is there somthing I need to do before I will get a visual? If it helps diagnose the problem, I have no keyboard lights, but mouse is on, and my reset button flashes the light, but doesn't reset the system. Could this be a motherboard or CPU problem, or am I just retarded?

Answer:No Monitor Signal

Hm...  What are the specs for the comp?  Well, I would advise you try running the computer with the integrated video card (If it has one), and see if you can get to BIOS from there.Oh, and yes, I believe you're supposed to see BIOS on your first boot.Btw, does your computer make any beeps when you turn it on?

Ok I went on vacation for a week came back and my PSU was fried. Powered on for about 10-30secs then killed the boot up sequence. No big deal $150 and almost an extra 200W of power later I have a new 750W PSU installed awesome all problems fixed! Not exactly. I go to boot up my computer after plugging everything in and everything fires on like it should minus my VCs aren't outputting any signal. I have 2 EVGA 8800GTS and both are plugged in just fine but no signal from any of the 4 outputs. So my computer stays on as it should but I'm getting no output signal what so ever. Thought it kinda curious that the problem would flip flop on me after I install the new better stronger PSU. Any tips would be appreciated.
 

Answer:No Signal to the Monitor

Try one video card at a time, in other words, remove one and try it then remove the other and reinstall the first one and try it. If you have on board video, try that. Double check that EVERYTHING is connected properly to both power and data cables. Double check the memory sticks: remove 'em and reinstall 'em... clear the CMOS while your at it.... oh yeah, be sure to unplug the power cord from the PSU every time you start pulling cards and jumpering jumpers and checking cables and such....
Good luck!

I recently opened my computer to add ram to it. I had 1 gig and added 512 to it.

This is how it looked before:
-512-
-open-

-512-
-open-

After:
-2 gig-
-512-

-512-
-open-

I arranged it like that cause I heard th pc loads from the closest one first so it is faster to have the bigger one there. I used a grounding strip of course.

When I went to start my pc, my monitor was not getting a signal. I then opened it up to check the side. It turned out the ribon cable connecting the optical drives to the mother board had come lose. I don't see how this relates to not getting a signal to the monitor because the cd and dvd drives don't effect this. In fact, this happened before and it just said that there were no optical drives found, so I opened it up and fixed it. This time, however, I noticed that one of the small sides of the insert slot on the mother board had crafted off and two of the spoke things were slightly bent (obviously due to the thing getting ripped out when I opened the pc door) because the thing wasn't fitting back in. I then bent them back up and reconnected.

I already figured this wasn't the problem though as I explained above. I've noticed my video card being a little wobbly when I went to unplug the monitor the last few times I opened up the comp. However, it seems to be plugged in. I don't know what is going on. Can anyone help?

Answer:monitor not getting a signal from pc

Make sure RAM is seated fully. Also try removing the 2 512mb sticks and boot. If it doesnt work, try just the 512 sticks like you had in before. Also, put the 512's in the same channel, rather than in separate channels like you show in your 2nd illustration.

Also, what do you mean by "spoke" things? And what on the board is chipped off??

Hello all, new to the forum so please forgive me if this isn't the right place to post this.

The problem I am having is with my son and daughters computers (they have one each). Both of their monitors are reading no signal. I have read through threads etc and will go down the road of checking the motherboard, RAM graphics card etc later.

What has happened is we are getting a lot of work done to the house and my kids had to take their computers out of their rooms and move them for storage. They have been sitting on our dining room floor for a month and to be honest there has been a lot of dust about (in particular plaster as somebody put their foot through the roof just above where the computers had been stored!).

We have reinstated the computers but both of them are showing "No Signal" on the monitors. We have tried swapping the monitors with each other and they both show "No Signal". It is a bit of a coincidence that both PC's would breakdown together and don't know if it is something simple that I am missing. Both computers turn on and beep but that's as far as we get as the monitor switches off. All cables correctly connected, could it be something as simple as the dust in them both?

Sorry to sound such a fool but totally stumped as to why both of the computers would show the same fault at the same time. They are both Zoostorm but bought a couple of years apart.

Many thanks in advance.

Answer:No signal to monitor

same prob; a couple ideas.

Hi, Lisa- I have the same prob right now. I tried a couple easy things, but they have not worked, so I am going to have to dig in and try more serious ideas.

But here is an easy one for you that might work.

(before you goof around inside the comp, you need to be certain you know how to do it safely - there are components in there that, even when unplugged, can shock and possibly electrocute you; plus, goofing around in there can shock the comp, damaging it from your static electricity.)

The beep heard when you start the computer actually is a code for something. You can google "POST beep codes," or similar, and figure out what, of five or six messages, the pattern of beeps mean. ("POST" means 'power-on self-test.')

The usual, brief but cheerful POST one-beep means everything is OK, as far as the hardware of the computer goes: RAM is working, motherboard is working, video is working, and keyboard is detected and working - off the top of my head, I don't know what else.

If that is the beep you hear, then the motherboard is OK, and the RAM is likely OK. It is also likely that the video processor is OK - the video processor might either be built into the motherboard, or may be a card that is plugged in to the motherboard.

Either way, it doesn't usually have an effect on the beeps: if you hear the one beep, then the video part of the computer is OK, and the problem is some other mystery - I could... Read more

Hi there!

I got a new system yesturday, a computer with a LCD monitor. When i turned the computer on the first time nothing happend to the screen. It didn't react to the computer. Then i pressed the power button on the screen and every thing worked. I got into windows and decided to change the resolution to the standard lcd size, i also did some other stuff such as testing sounds etc. Then it happend - the screen went black and it gave the message "No sinal, going to sleep" (or something similar)

I obviously tried to restart but it didn't work. The monitor tells me "No signal recived and does not react to the computer. The computer seems to work (I hear fans but i don't see anything on the screen.

I've tried with both the analog and the digital but none of them work. (Well actually the analog one kind of worked once but then went black) So it's random but in 19 of 20 restarts - no reaction at all.

I've also tried the lcd monitor on an old computer and it works so i guess it would make sense to say that the computer is the problem.

Any ideas? Has any one heard of these problems before. And what should i do?


The video card is a Radeon 9600 and the monitor a Fujitsu S17-1

With kind regards; Horsie

Answer:LCD monitor - No signal

When you first turn on the computer, does the screen come on at all? Does it show the boot up process then goes blank when it goes into Windows? If not, this sounds silly, but first disconnect the reconnect both ends of the video cable, cpu side and monitor side. Check that the plug is fullyseated on both sides of the power brick for your monitor. If that doesn't work then do you get a lot of beeps (6) when you first turn on the computer? If you do then the video card probably died. (Do they still use beeps for post testing?)

Question: No Monitor Signal

I recently built a computer from scratch ? lots of fun. But I have run into a problem with my monitor. Everything was working fine when one day I turned on the computer and the monitor couldn?t find a signal (Samsung model # S24D390HL). This happened frequently. My temporary fix was to unplug the computer, the monitor and the HDMI cable and then plug them back in. The monitor then worked fine. I found what I thought was the problem: updating the graphics card drivers (ASUS GTX660 NVidia card). That seemed to do the trick but then one day I turned on the computer, no signal, unplugged everything, and still nothing. I spoke to Samsung who suggested that maybe Windows (Windows 7 Pro) was updating drivers and got interrupted which corrupted the drivers. They suggested trying a different monitor to get a picture, updating Samsung drivers and then re-connecting my Samsung monitor and then disabling Windows graphics card update. They said it?s better to update directly from NVidia site. My current dilemma is that I only have another older model monitor with a VGA connector. I tried connecting it to the onboard motherboard (ASUS Z87-Pro) VGA connection. Nothing. Is there a way to disable the graphics card without physically removing it from the motherboard so I can use the onboard VGA connection?

Answer:No Monitor Signal

Sometimes it can be enabled in the BIOS but with most MBoards the card needs to be removed...

Question: Monitor No Signal

Hello,

Today, my computer's monitor wouldn't show any signal. My computer seems to work fine since the Windows 10 music plays after boot. I tried another monitor and another DVI wire with no results. I'm starting to think the problem's with my GPU. What should I do?

My computer's around 5 years old and it's a custom built desktop. I don't know the specs since I can't plug a monitor that works on it.

i changeg my case yesterday and now for some reason am not getting any signal to my monitor. i tried changing the vga and clearing the cmos(someone told me it worked for them), but none of these worked. is there something that i might have missed? like not plugin some wire(like from the tower to the mother board)? i have a windows xp pro, epox mobo(which is only showing C1 on the mobo), kingston ram, and amd xp28oo. before i changed cases it all worked fine, so i dont think there is a incompatibility problem.

Answer:no signal on my monitor

Not nearly enough info. Is the "E" for eMachines? If it is, the monitor is working fine & there's something wrong within your tower.

last night the computer was working fine but today when i just added another 128 mb ram it wont send a signal to the monitor for some reason so i took the ram that i just put in back out and tried to boot then but still i get no signal to the monitor and im getting really frustrated to the point that im gonna throw the computer and the monitor in the middle of the road. i had this problem before and the guy in the store told me it was just the way the wireing was set up or something like that but the only thing i did was take the hard drive out to transfer some files to another computer but then i put it back the same way and then i tried the ram thing but still no signal

please help
 

Answer:no signal to monitor

Go through all the basics: check that the memory is seated, check the video card as well, they can sometimes pop out of the slot. Do you get a single beep from the system when you boot up? That indicates that the system has checked hardware and all is ok. Since you messed with the hard drive, check all the connections there, and that you didnt pull something else loose when you worked in the machine

Question: Monitor no signal

Hello,

We just moved and are having a problem with our computers. The monitors are not getting a signal yet they are connected properly, appear to be working properly otherwise and the computers appear to be working fine. Both were working previous to the move and have been moved before with no problems. They also both went in seperate trips.

To troubleshoot I tried connecting one monitor to the other computer, switched the cables, and confirmed that the cables were connected properly. It doesn't make any sense that they would both stop working. That is why I think it is something obvious that I'm missing.

Please let us know what you think.

Would a faulty CPU cause no signal to the monitor, I have 2 new motherboards both onboard graphics)and 2 cpu neither of which will send a signal to the monitor when I start them

Answer:No Signal no monitor.

A faulty monitor would also cause the same result. Or it could be the CPU's are not sutable for the board, assuming that the two CPU's are the same, tried on two identical boards. Or perhaps the Power supply.If you give more detailed info about the cpu's, boards, monitor, other hardware, and what you have tried to do to fix your problem, someone may be able to help.At the moment all that is knows is that you have a problem, and that is is no signal to the monitor.

Hi

I fitted a new heat sinc, added some a RAM chip and fitted a DVD re-writer to my pc today. Nothing too tricky there, although im far from being an expert.

When i went to boot the machine back up, i didnt get the normal green light on my monitor or any sign of anything happening. Instead i got the orange light suggesting no signal was being received.

The PC booted up fine making all the right beeps etc as it used to.

Ive plugged the monitor into my laptop since and its working fine.

I tried re-seating the video card too, but that made no difference.

Looking at the mobo etc inside, i cant see anything not plugged in, based on the work i carried out i didnt touch anything else. Though i did blow out some dust.

Thinking back, this is the 1st heatsink ive replaced myself - and i had no idea how much thermal compound to use. Used a spot about the size of a quid coin and piled it fairly high - is this too much and has shorted something maybe?

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks.
 

Answer:No signal to monitor after some DIY

Are the parts you added compatible with the PC? Have you reset the CMOS? Refer to your mobo manual.

Hope you didn't use a vaccum (some wet/dry have blower adapters). A can of air duster is the best.

Hello there! So my question is this. Im just building my new gaming pc with some good specs such us Msi Z270 Carbon Pro,Msi 1050TI GAMING X 4GB,Coolermaster v850 Gold series (PSU),Collermaster Nepton240m aircooler and then i have 2 ram DDR4 HyperX (8gb) and Intel Pentium G4400 for now. So my problem is that my pc is working but there ia no Beep (Post) or signal in Monitor. All the cables are on their place. That means that i get the led from Mobo,led from GPU,all 6 fans are working perfectly and even the led on RAM's is on so that means that my RAM's should be fine isnt it? Anyway. No beep,no nothing and no signal. Do you know what is that supposed to mean? Im really dissapointed because i gave already 900 euros for all this and i get nothing from the pc. By the way the monitor's led works fine as well but no signal at all.

I've just done a new build, which consists of:

Asus P7H55-M
2x2gb Corsair RAM
Intel i5
Win Power +Plus 750w PSU
ATI Radeon HD 5850

I put all the pieces in place but I get no signal to the monitor. I've tried removing each component one by one until I am left with only the CPU, but still the error continues. I've tried the onboard graphics when the GPU isn't connected but it still happens. What could it possibly be? I've reset the CMOS, reseated the RAM and CPU, but nothing helps. I've also tried unplugging the power and holding the front power switch on for 30 seconds but to no avail.

I've never even heard of the PSU brand so I think it might be a problem with the quality of that. It was 32 so yeah...not great quality. There is no beeping although I'm not sure if the motherboard even has a beeper?

At the moment, I'm trying to get it working with the onboard graphics to eliminate the possibility of a graphics card error.

I've tried:

Removing each component one by one until left with just the CPU.
Unplugging the power and holding the on switch for 30 seconds.
A known working PSU.
Reseating and re-plugging everything.
Resetting CMOS.
3 monitors via 3 different cables - VGA, DVI and HDMI.
Building it outside the case on a non-conductive surface.

I'm baffled. Thoughts?
 

Answer:No signal to monitor

First test to do is prove the monitor and it's cable works, on another pc, or vga out on a laptop, (if you have a spare pc or can use one for this check.)
Then when you can rely on the monitor, connect it to the onboard vga socket, leave your video card out of the motherboard for now.
Connect your hard drive and a DVD drive.
Look for a 4-pin socket on the motherboard near the CPU, it needs a lead from the PSU, (if relevant to your pc).
Press power on button. What happens? Any activity from HDD or DVD front LED?
Any fans running in PSU or CPU ?
Any text on screen?
If no to all, then PSU is suspect.
If you can try a different PSU and still no activity, then motherboard is suspect.
If LED on DVD flashes, hold in power button to force shutdown.
Power on, Press your BIOS access key (F2 or Esc or Del whichever yours is).
Can you see BIOS screen, then 'On board devices'?
If yes, then set the 'on board devices' / 'integrated graphics' to enabled.
In boot sequence, make CD/DVD drive 1st, then 'on-board SATA' 2nd.
Then F11 to 'save & exit'.
If you get this far, it's probably going to be enough to install Windows, connect to the net via CAT5 cable to modem/router, activate Windows etc.

ok, been researching this on my bro's pc for 6 days. no help. the problem: previously working pc runs fine, but monitor stays off (orange light). something different than the other posts: i use quick keys and after i was sure pc started up xp professional, i ran winamp and played music fine, though monitor was still blank, meaning that cpu, sound card, hd work fine i think. i've done what i can to diagnose problem for 6 days. reseated everything, switched out cables, switched out 6800 gs pci-e for another new card. switched out monitors, even tried booting off different hd. in my mind, that only leaves mobo. i pressed power button on mobo for 30 secs, and cleared cmos.i hear all the normal beeps during startup, all fans on. leds on keyboard work fine. can't see bios or anything. my monitor only displays override when i power on. i'm only thinking maybe there's some capacitor or something on mobo that allows signal to pass through vid card, and maybe that blew. i've been reading many pc help forums, and this one by far is more comprehensive and ppl have a true desire to help others, so here i am.

I then press one of the buttons on the monitor, and it comes up with a message that says NO SIGNAL, and shows the three colors. I have to shut off my computer, wait a couple of minutes, then turn it back on, and it works fine. This happens maybe two or three times a day, and it's not at any specific time, I could be playing games, on this internet, or just listening to music.

Hi,

I have a weird problem. When I turn on my computer the monitor has no picture and says "power saving mode" which it usually says when the computer is turned off. If I take the plug out the monitor says "No signal, check cable" - so there is a connection? When I plug the monitor on the integrated videocard I see picture just fine, also tried plugging the monitor on another computer and it works there too. So I took the computer to the shop to have it looked and when I got it back they said they didn't find anything wrong with it - the videocard and everything was working just fine. So I got home tried again and it worked, I saw picture through that videocard again. Now the next day it stopped working again. As much as I've checked over the past couple of weeks the temperature levels on the video card are withing normal range and I have never clocked the card or cpu either.

Any ideas what I should do and if it really is the video card problem or could it be something else?

Thanks

OK me and my brother were kind of done building my new Gaming PC. We installed all the basic components, etc etc. When I turn on the PSU I see no light on the motherboard and nothing happens. But when I turn on the actual computer there is a light on the motherboard, all fans are spinning fine and I don't think I can hear any beeps though.

When I connect the monitor cable however, it still results in no signal, nothing happens. Am I supposed to be connecting my 8800GTX in a specific way, maybe it's a sign showing that I haven't connected it properly or it isn't connected at all? The 8800GTX also seems kind of wobbly, even we haven't screwed it properly in yet, should it still be this wobbly?

Also can you explain why an LED on the motherboard does not switch on after I turn on the PSU but only after I turn on the computer? Is that another sign of some wrongdoing?

I would really appreciate your analysis, but please don't jump to the conclusion of faulty RAM etc! And people who know what they're talking about only please!

Answer:monitor has no signal

Should be under the hardware section.

Check the monitor has power.
Check the monitor is set to the correct 'source'
Check the GPU has power and is seated correctly
Check you are using the GPU's port and not the MOBO.
If its still dead, try using the port on the MOBO instead.

If that all fails, test the monitor on a difference machine to make sure it works.

Let us know how you get on with that.

While playing COD 4 last week the screen suddenly went black with red lines going down it. Few seconds later Vista crashed. Rebooted and immeditly noticed that the BIOS splash screen had funny grey shapes all over it. When Vista loaded the graphics were very distorted and it soon crashed.

Turned the computer off completly and left it for a few minutes. Turned it back on the computer seems to power up all fans start going lights come on but theres no signal to the monitor. Checked all the connections then tried monitor on different computer just to confirm that monitor was ok.

Naturally I thought the problem was related to the graphics card so decided it was time to replace my 6600GT with a brand new 9800GT. Arrived yesterday. Fitted it powered up, same. No signal to monior.

Then tried stuff like taking 1 ram chip out and trying in different sockets. With no change. Then went out and spent way to much money on a 700w PSU. Still exactly the same.

Next step I guess is a new motherboard but has anyone else ever had anything simmilar or have any ideas?

It is possible that the computer is not powering up. It could be a bad power supply. If you are going on just a few lights lighting, Fans turning and CD Drawrs opening and closing that is not a true indication that the system is booting nad the power supply working properly. If you have a spare power supply available you could try swapping it into the system to test it.

Hi

CPU ?? I think you mean your PC, the CPU is the widget inside that does the clever stuff.

Chances are whilst transporting and fiddling in something you clearly have no understanding off you have either dislodged something or you have zapped it with static.

However dont give up hope, it may be something simple, such as a bent pin on the monitor lead or your memory chip has come loose, you need to get a good light inside and check that all the components are seated correctly.

Also check the add on cards havent worked loose, expecially the one for the monitor.

I swap motherboards fairly often so when i do so before i take my old MB out i just plug up the necessary components (harddrive,memory,videocard). so this last time i hooked it up and everything worked fine, so i took out my other board and reconnected everything to my new board(cdrom,3 1/2, harddrive,and videocard). but when i turned it on my monitor said "NO SIGNAL" so i took my videocard out and put it back in ...nothing, i repeated this several times hoping that it would take, but that didnt happen. so i tried another video card in several different slots but i kept getting the same message on my monitor. I i began to think it was my monitor or cable so i took my case and all and hooked it up to a different monitor, it just showed a black screen . could this problem have been caused because of the other components i hooked up the second time, or is there something else that caused it?

Answer:My monitor won't/can't get a signal!!!

A couple things to check. First check the cable from the monitor for bent pins. I have seen this a couple times.

Also check the clear cmos jumper to make sure it is on pins 1 and 2. Occasionally you will run across a board shipped with it in the clear position (pins 2 and 3 ).

A few weeks ago there was a power surge that killed my old PSU. I just got a new one today, I put it in, and now my monitor isn't recieving a signal. It's not the monitor because the monitor works fine with another computer. When I turn the computer on, everything else seems to be turning on right, it makes the beep noise that it's supposed to when it starts, and the video card is running as well. The new PSU is 500w, same as my old one. I even tried unplugging and starting again, or turning off and on the PSU switch, but that didn't do anything either. Anyone have any idea what the problem could be?
 

Answer:Monitor has no signal with new PSU

maybe the surge did something to your graphics card too? It's not likely, since there would usually be some sort of beep code at POST. However, i stress the word "usually" because it's still possible. Try changing the graphics card, or if the card is integrated into the board, get a PCI card.

If you currently have an AGP card in it, test it with another AGP card.

If you currently have a PCI card, or integrated graphics, then test it with a PCI card. With many computers, if a computer is set to start on the integrated controller, it will ignore the AGP card until you change the settings in the BIOS. It will, however, see the PCI card and use it instead of the integrated controller. (I'm almost certain about this, but almost isn't completely)

I've read a few of these threads I've seen but none of the solutions suggested haven't helped.

Midway through playing a game, both monitors flash black and display a "no signal" message. I've tried using another monitor with my computer with the same problem. I left the screens black for about five minutes before I decided to reset, and now I simply can't get anything on my monitors (both of which work on another system in the house).

Is there anything anyone can suggest that may help?
I've tried:

Cleaning my base unit.
Testing monitors with another system.
Testing another system with monitors.
Despite seeing no image, I tried to boot into safe mode.

Unfortunately, the only system specs I can remember are that I'm on Windows XP 64-bit and the graphics card (which I think may be the issue) is an Asus GTS250 DK/HTDI/1GD3 (Details from it's box).
 

Answer:No signal to monitor

Video input problems can be caused by many things, but to me it just sounds like your graphics card died.

To identify the problem (I assume the computer still 'starts'), please tell me:



Do the monitors work on another computer?

Do you have a computer in which you can try the graphics card? If so, please do and share the results.

Have you had any heat related problems before?

Does your motherboard produce any beeps on startup?

Heat crashes mostly happen during long gaming-sessions, or when the computer is on for a long time.

If the motherboard produces (a) beep(s) on startup, see this for info on the problem.
If the monitor(s) work on another pc, they obviously aren't the problem.
If the graphics card works on another pc, there's probably something else that has died, like the cpu.

I hopes this helps you along (if still necessary ofcourse)

Question: No Signal Monitor

Alright I have looked everywhere and my husband and I are pretty stumped.The problem we are having is when we turn on the computer it does not show on the monitor says no signal.  Tried hooking up to a new monitor same thing so we figured a video card.  Tried that and still same result.  He tried replacing the motherboard and processor and still no progress.  We hooked up my monitor to his computer and it does work.  So I am guessing its something to do with my desktop.  Last possible thing I can think of is memory? ram?Any ideas?

I'm getting no signal when I connect my monitor. The port is connected to a ribbon and then connected to motherboard. I have tired disconnecting the ribbon on reconnecting. I was not having any issues with the monitor before I disconnected it and reconnected it.

Could it be the ribbon that is bad or am I looking a bigger problems?

I have widows xp and when my son turned on his pc today it said no signal going to sleep. I put the monitor on another pc and it works fine. So I then took out the video card that I put in a year ago (it has an intergrated one in the mother board also) and the monitor does the the same thing I don't know what to check next if it's not the monitor or the video card. Any suggestions? I am a single mother of 3 with a limited income so I would like to figure it out myself with help here rather. Thanks all....

Alright so it worked when I left to go pay a bill. Come back and it has no signal. I tried the PC on my TV to see if it worked and it does no problem, so I know the PC is not at fault. Tried a DVI cable and a VGA. Tried restarting and powering off everything.

Answer:Monitor not getting signal.

Ok I fixed it. When I plugged it in to the TV there was something with the current session and I deleted it and all is good.

My buddy recently purchased parts for his new comp.
We put it together and everything seemed to work fine...we started installing windows XP on it only to realize that we need SATA controllers for his RAID hard drive.
We went on another computer and created the needed floppy only to come back to locked up system.
The computer boots up but it doesn't go into any sort of screen... in fact the monitor displays NO SIGNAL.
We checked all the cables...no bent pins...no motherboard beeps!!!!
Replaced graphics card...no luck...unpluged/pluged all of the things except taking out the CPU...nothing.

I should mention that we frequently were taking the floppy drive in and out of the computer because we had one floppy drive and would go back and forth between his old computer and this new one.

It worked fine. We shut it down, turn it back up with no response.
Please give us some suggestions.
Thanks.
His components:

CPU: AMD Athlon XP 3000
MB: Asus A7V880
RAM: 1GB of Crucial (checked motherboard manual for compatability and
it was fine)
Graphics Card: Radeon 9800Pro 256 mb
Case: some sort of gamers case with a 420W power supply
Hard Drive: Western Digital 80 gig

Answer:Monitor SAYS NO signal, I NEED BIG HELP

Are you able to put the graphic card in another slot? The fact that the vid works in another system, tells you it's ok. Have you tried swapping monitors? You know your monitor works. Put it on his machine. If it still doesn't work, then it's not the monitor. Here's what I would do......

Strip the machine to bare bones. Pull EVERYTHING out. All you should have is case, motherboard, video card, memory, keyboard, monitor. That's it. No disk drives.

Boot the machine. Any video? If not, then it's your MB. Can you change slots (if it's PCI)?

If the machine does boot with video (and barks about not disk), then start adding one piece at a time. Everytime you add a piece, boot it up and check the vid. I would add them in this order:

floppy
RAID controller
mouse
RAID drives
DVD
sound

Anytime you build a system, that's the best way (I found) to put one together. You then have tested each part before you put a lot of time in the machine before you realize you have to do it all over again!

Hey all,

OS: XP
video card: Geforce FX

I have serious problem, my monitor receives no signal anymore and therefore I can't acces my computer.
The Video cable from pc to monitor is OK
the monitor receives electricity.

First action, tried another monitor (other video cable and other screen) => still no signal

second action: tried an other video card. (this was a really old one => unplugged my geforce FX and plugged the other card into the PCI slot =>stil no signal!

Does this mean that the problem will be made by the motherboard? :-(
what can I do? to check what is really the problem? What if my motherboard is the cause? Will I still be able to acces all my ancient files and outlook mails?

please help me out!
greetings!

Hi everyone, I'm new to posting on this forum but over the years it has proven very useful in helping me. So I'm really hoping someone here has a answer to my problem

Ok basically what's happen is my optima computer turns on, optical mouse lights up, keyboard lighs however don't light up and the monitor stays in standbye mode and says breifly "no signal". So basically you can not use the computer at all. However if I pull the blue monitor cable out the message on the monitor changes to no cable connected so it's oviously connected fine.

What I have tried:
Ok so first I tried unplugging the monitor and setting it up on another computer and it worked fine, so ruled out that problem. So I then took the monitor back to the computer that's got problems and tried the monitor cables off the other computer the monitor just tested fine on thinking maybe it was a fault with cables. However this didn't work. So I then left the computer for a few days. Then I tried hooking up a new mouse thinking that maybe the mouse isn't functioning and in turn isn't taking the monitor off stanby mode so it can resume to windows. I thought this because the broken computer is actually running, all lights are on, fans working it's just as if computer from startup is in stanby according to the monitor "if that makes sense". This at first worked, however once the computer loaded to windows it froze on the startup screen. I then h... Read more

Answer:Monitor has no signal

So let me see if I can clear this up for myself:

The monitor cables work fine.

The monitor itself works fine.

The monitor even worked for a bit hooked up to your son's computer

But, at the moment, the monitor won't work with your son's computer.

Is that correct?

I know this question has been asked before but I searched the archives and none of it seemed to help. My monitor has just recently started saying "No VGA signal".. I haven't changed anything, it just happened randomly. The video card is only about 2 or 3 months old so I don't see how that could be the problem. I borrowed a monitor from my grandma and tried hooking that one up but it just has a blank screen (it is a really old monitor though.) I tried using new chords with the original monitor and I still get the No VGA signal message. The computer boots up fine, and the fans are running and everything, but there is no picture on the monitor after the No VGA signal, and then the monitor just goes to sleep. So is it the video card or what? We just upgraded like a said a few months ago, but I have an old video card that I could try.
 

Answer:No VGA signal on monitor..

Without a signal to the monitor how are you ensuring that the computer is truly booting up fully?

Please post your system specs, To include Make and model System if Big Box, or same info for the following if custom or home built, Mother Board (including Revision number), Processor (Exact Model Number), Ram, Video Card, Hdd(s), Optical Drive(s), Power Supply Manufacturer Model, Wattage and Amperage on the +12V Rails, OS, and any other peripherals installed on the motherboard.

Question: No Monitor Signal

I recently began to build my own PC. It has inside:

P4 Processor W/ HT
Intel MB (D845GVAD2)
450 Watt Power Supply
DVD ROM and DVD-R/ DVD+R
2 HDs 100GB and 20GB (Neither has an OS)
1 stick 512MB (333 MHZ DDR)

Also I have not yet installed any modems, NICs, or any other additional cards yet.

When starting the computer I get three beeps and no monitor signal. Everything else is started as normal.

Also, I am not to sure of the wiring on the Motherboard being correct, no detailed instructions were supplied. Went to Intels website for help and there were no helpful diagrams available for the wiring.

Now i know this thread has been made before but my situation is slightly different, see about 2 months ago my BIOS crapped out and so i ordered a new one, when it arrived i popped the old one out and put the new one in no problems thus far... So i switch on my PC and all of the fans start and i look up at the monitor and it gives me the no signal sign (it doesnt say it but theres this thing on the screen that basically suggests that and it happens everytime the monitor goes off)

So I'm thinking that its either a faulty bios...the wrong bios....or my CPU / Mobo is broken

So heres what i know:
-The PSU is OK b/c i was using it in another pc prior.
-The RAM is fine for the same reason, its been used in another pc and both sticks of 512 DDR1 are OK
-Ive reset the CMOS
-Unplugged monitor plugged back in
-Took out everything except the motherboard and put it back in
-Re-Applied thermal paste
-Did the whole turn off the PSU and hold down the button for 30 secs....

and stil nuthin'

Any help is appreciated

My SPECS-

-680 watt SunTec PSU
-AMD Sempron 3100+ 1.8GhZ (i think)
-1 GB of ram (2x 512Mb)
-Ati X1900 XTX 512MB
-Mobo is First International Computer K8MC51GLF

and yeah i'm upgrading soon anyway..b.c that Card doesnt belong with such a crappy system ^.^

I got a computer that was wiped clean, I know everything worked before I got it, now I am trying to install the os and can't get signal to the monitor??? Please help!!
 

Answer:No signal to monitor

First thing I would do, is (if you have not had this pc on and working before) check which video output socket that your monitor is plugged into.
Is the pc using integrated graphics, or does it have a separate graphics card?
Be sure you have monitor attached to the correct socket, i.e. for integrated graphics you use the motherboard blue VGA socket.
It's possible if there was a previous owner, they used a different setup to what you expect.

Recently i've attempted for the first time to build a computer, but i've had several problems and am afraid that I will never get it to work.
My problem is after I install the parts to the motherboard and power up the motherboard and CPU I get "No Signal" on the monitor.
I have litterally tried every solution to fix this problem the the problem still exists.

These are some of the solutions I have tried so far
. Build outside of the case
. Keep the essential parts on to test ( CPU + Fan, 1 Stick of Ram, Graphic Card )
. Tried to use the onboard graphics ( Taken the graphic card out for meantime )
. Tested the ram in different ram slots
. Clearing CMOS

Just to add that I have had 2 motherboards, 2 CPU's and 2 kinds of 4GB ram, since I was convinced they were the ones faulty but obviously they weren't ( Replacement for the 1st CPU and a refund for the the 1st motherboard then got a different motherboard, DDR2 ram for first motherboard then I got DDR3 for the next motherboard )

Here are the specs:
( Original Motherboard ) Sapphire PC-AM2RS790GX Socket AM2+
( Orginal RAM ) Corsair DDR2 4GB RAM
( Current Motherboard ) Asus M4A79T-E Socket AM3
( Current RAM ) Corsair DDR3 4GB RAM
AMD Phenom II x3 720 ( Socket AM3 )
Corsair 750W PSU
Asus HD 4870

So far I have tested 2 motherboards and 2 of the Phenom 720's but still the fault exists.

I have a problem with my desktop monitor, while playing Neverwinter Nights 2 on a previously stable computer, the screen went black followed by the No Signal message on the monitor. Subsequent reboots dont even bring the monitor out of standby.

The monitor is fine, I hooked it up to the laptop and used it as a second display and no problems.

My desktop posts fine, one beep as usual, keyboard light blinks once, optical drives check for inserted media, and the hard drive chitters away for the usual peiod of time until it gets to the log on waiting for my input which obviously I cant see at the moment. I normally have the monitor connected to the grafics card using the digital connector, but have tried the DSUB connector too (monitor supports both - ViewSonic VX24 (I think that model number is correct but not sure) LCD) with no joy on the desktop.

I have reset the bios, reseated graphics card and memory sticks, re-plugged in all cables on the motherboard.

Mobo = ASUS K8V-F, with AMD Athlon 64 3400. 1gb memory (2 x 512 PC3200)
Grafics = Winfast A400 (NVidia Geforce 6800 GT, 256m)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is the problem with the computer it's self? Or with the monitor... a few things that you could try is putting in a new VGA, or rebooting in safe-mode. Let me know if this helps.

I have tryed it in safe mode and it does the same thing, it is not on the internet and have loaded nothing on so i dont think it is a virus, the last thing i did was resit the graphics card and also played around a bit with the monitor setup in display settings (as I connected it to a tv. I presume that has something to do with it... Any ideas?

Awhile ago, my house had a power surge and my computer burned out. After attempting reboot, everything seemed fine but the monitor would not get a signal. I talked to the support website for my motherboard, described my problem and they came to the conclusion that the motherboard was the problem.A week later, my new motherboard arrives, I try booting and have the same problem. I ask the website again and they now believe that the RAM is the problem, I replace both sticks of RAM with two new sticks, try booting and have the same result (I have tried booting with each stick one at a time, no difference)Next I try replacing the video card, after booting with all new components, I am still getting the same result.Finally I replace the power supply, assuming that is the only thing left that can be a problem, and still the same thing, no signal.I am very annoyed with this problem, I was wondering if anyone had any idea on a solution? I have tried resetting the CMOS which didn't help either. I am also 100% sure that all components are seated correctly and all power connections are secure.Thanks,MrTwigEdit: I forgot to say that I tried 3 different monitors each time I replaced a component, just to be sure.

Hi All,Have a desktop PC (Core i7, DDR3 RAM, Gigbyte motherboard, ATI 4850 graphics card, Windows Vista, Coolermaster case, hooked up to a GNR 19" flatcreen monitor). Boot up machine into Windows Vista no problems, after roughly about four-five mins, feed to monitor goes, monitor signalling 'no signal'. Machine seems to continues to run, fans, hard drive activity etc. Nothing seems to bring the monitor signal back except for rebooting. Reboots back into Windows, rinse and repeat. No software or hardware conflicts visible in system settings. I popped the case to see if the graphics card had become unseated, appears ok.What do you guys think?Any help appreicated!

Question: no monitor signal?

My computer dose not send a signal to my monitor, the power supply isnt the problem cause the fans are working and the keyboard/mouse light up...I have no clue what to do I really need some help, much appreciated!
 

Answer:no monitor signal?

Just because the fans run and the lights are on does not mean the computer has booted.

Unless the computer boots, there can be no video display.

Does the computer give the normal single "beep" and play the startup music, or is all silent?

Okay...I am having lots of trouble trying to fix this problem. While on my computer, my monitor just randomnly goes blank, and the color of the light changes to an amber like color. I then press one of the buttons on the monitor, and it comes up with a message that says NO SIGNAL, and shows the three colors. I have to shut off my computer, wait a couple of minutes, then turn it back on, and it works fine. This happens maybe two or three times a day, and it's not at any specific time, I could be playing games, on this internet, or just listening to music. And sometimes, the computer will randomnly restart after the monitor says this. I am wondering if anybody has had this problem, and if anybody knows a solution. It is very annoying when I'm in the middle of something.

- Could it be a motherboard problem???
I have an MSI KT-3 Ultra 2 motherboard.

-What about a graphics card problem??

Answer:NO SIGNAL in Monitor

Please don't double post. It just clutters up the forums.

Install the drivers for your monitor. You may be running it at a setting it can't handle, like your refresh rate or resolution may be too high.

Also reinstall your video drivers. What Detonators are you using? Most likely it's a video card problem, if your comp is resetting.

And as usual, double check and triple check your connections.

It could also be a PSU problem :haha:

recently, and it worked, except it ran as a 1500+.....finally worked out wat it was! FSB was at 100, not 133! So i tried putting it at 133, but everything kept hanging so i tried it at some different FSB speeds.....it worked fine up until 128FSB! Then during a run of 3DMark my pc just turned off. And now wen i try to boot up, it seems as though its booting fine, but there is no signal to the monitor!

I have a Radeon8500 128mb, but i dont think this is the problem, as i've tried my old TNT2, but still nothing works! Please help, as i wasnt overclocking anything, just trying to get it to run at normal speeds ffs!
