No signal to monitor

Q: No signal to monitor

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.

Preferred Solution: No signal to monitor

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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:

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.

heres my problem when i plug in everything, it turns on and everything. The
monitor has no signal and doesnt turn on even though i connected it to the video card. The fan on the video card works however. Anyone help me out?

A:No signal on monitor, please help

Welcome to Techspot !
That looks like it could be a very cool machine .
Have you double checked all your connections ,cleaned terminal with an eraser, etc.?
Try new power and data cables to the monitor?
Can you test the monitor on another machine?
Can you test the card on another machine ? a lot of retailers can do this for free.
I notice the card has a DVI and an Analogue terminal.You should be trying both terminals .It might also be better to disconnect you HDD 's while you are trouble shooting .All you want to do is get to BIOs setup for now .
Ati does list having a problem ' No screen image with DVI and flat panel' but I am not sure that involves you.

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

A: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

I've recently bought a gaming tower (custom made) (not by me) due to my laptop being old. I have also bought a new monitor (Acer) on a separate site, today I've been trying to set it all up but when I turn everything on my monitors logo comes up on the screen and then it goes straight to saying no signal. I've tried turning everything off and back on again and disconnecting and reconnecting the cables but nothing seems to be working. the only thing I can think is that there is another cable needed but I'm not sure what the cables I've got are.

1. power cord for PC Tower
2. power cord for monitor
3. VGA cable
any suggestions would be much appreciated

by the way the monitor only has a VGA port if that helps

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?

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?

A: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 just built a Pent4 1.6 mhz
Asus P4S333 board, Kingston PC2700 Value Ram 512 meg and a Geforce 4 ti4600. The case is an Antec 400w P/S
I booted it for the first time and it seemed everything in the tower ran. The fans (including the one one the Vid card) and the light is on on the mobo. I am unable to get a signal to the monitor.

I tried a different monitor and it still didn't work so that was out. I put the video card in another computer and that worked fine. I moved the ram around and removed and reinserted the chip. Still no signal to the monitor. Any Ideas? Thanks, Rob

I am to repair an IBM NetVista ( 40 GB HDD, 512 RAM, XP Pro), but I can't get a signal to reach my monitor. I have tried two different video cards (nvidia vanta-16). I know that the monitor works because it is connected to a working computer. When I try it on the computer I am working on, it displays "No Signal" and red, green, blue and white bars underneath the message. What is my next step?

A:No signal from Monitor

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.

My computer specs are as follows

12gb DDR3 corsair RAM
Intel i7 2.6 ghz
750 gb HD
1000 watt modular PSU
2 nVidia GTX 260's running in SLI

The issue I'm having is my monitor is not receiving a signal from the graphics card, which leads me to think that the gpu is damaged. However the power to the gpu itself is working fine. I have also tried taking the cards out of SLI and just using them separately including swapping the cards places. Nothing...

I then tried removing components that may directly effect the gpu such as the ram and other peripherals, I cleaned and inspected each and replaced them into their slots, still no luck.

The only thing I have not done is remove the CPU or use compressed air to clean out the pci-e slot, I will be trying the compressed air, however I don't see it as a likely solution so I am posting for some help.

The reason I believe that it may be an issue other that my graphics is because I would think it likely that both my graphics cards would fail at the same time, especially when the computer was running just fine minuets before the monitor lost signal and powered off

I've tried various other small things such as remove the battery from the mobo, switch dvi cables, all connections tight on my modular PSU, I have had similar issues in the past, however they seemed to fix themselves faster than I was able to troubleshoot the problem.

So it may still work on its own, however unlikely. Or I have a faulty component, either m... Read more

I am having trouble with my pc starting up, yesterday i went to turn it on and got no signal to the monitor although i can hear it boot up and makes sound from windows start up but no signal was detected on both my monitors, the graphics card fan is running extremely loud so i thought it might be that,
so i switched to an older card and that seemed to boot up fine but was told it was running lower since not enough power was getting to the card,
my current card is a 9800gtx+ and it requires 2 separate power connections my older card doesn't so it's less power hungry by a long shot.

so where is the problem lying would you suspect my mobo is toast or the psu?
it's not a new pc btw has been running fine for 2 years and psu is more than capable of running it.

A:No signal to monitor

Hi kitaz.

If your system works fine with your older card, then your motherboard is not "toast". What are the specs of your older card? Also, what PSU are you presently using? Also ensure that both power connectors are plugged into the GPU.

Before putting in the 9800GTX did you uninstall all previous graphics drivers?

The problem is that i'm not geting image on the monitor, it says "no signal". The problem is not from the monitor because it works in another computer.

It started happening after I changed several things in my computer. I have a Medion Titanium MD8383 XL that has a Nvidia Geforce 6610 XL. I changed the memory cards from two 258Mb to two 512Mb, and installed a new CPU cooler, Verax quattro I , and a new VGA cooler VF-700AlCu.

The new fans on the CPU and on the video card seem to be working.
I tried with the old memory cards and it still didn't work.
Where can the problem come from?

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?

Hey! i have been playing black desert online lately,which means that my pc have been going non stop for the last two weeks. it has not been turne off once. i have ofc put my pc screen(AOC) in "slumber mode",but when i pressed the keyboard it would turn on again. Now suddenly, i was playing, my monitor turned black and gave me the sign " no signal". i have checked the cable (HDMI) everything was fine,have tried different inputs,still does not work.

Should i just give it a rest for a while or is there some other issue perhaps?

A:monitor does not get a signal

If you have been gaming on it NONSTOP and haven't powered it off even once in the last 2 weeks, it's my guess something overheated and caused damage to the system. I would take off the side panel and see if you see anything that looks burnt/charred or if you smell anything "burnt."

I get on the screen "Please Check The Signal cable" And I get NO BEEPS. HDDS are spinning. CPU fan running.

I read through another forum to find out what others have said and tryed and tryed a few of my own.

This PC i built hasnt been running yet. So can't see BIOS, nor can update any drivers.

Right now I only got the on Board Video card, since I haven't got any PCI express X16 card yet to fit the slot (I may get one when I get more money).

Here's what I tryed. Unplugging connector that connects the video card at the back of pc and repluging it, I tryed that a few times. Removing the the 2 RAM I had and tryed one of them at the time. PCI slots are empty at the moment. I tryed to only put the one HDD on my IDE Controler, instead of two. I cleared the CMOS (jumper). removed floppy cable.

You would think the MB would beep if there were an error, but it doesn't

Here are my spec:


CPU Pentuim 4, 3.20GHz

2 x 512MB RAM DDR

2HDDS (Master: Maxtor 6.4GB, works fine, Slave Maxtor (i think) 40GB)

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....

So I recently build my first gaming pc and everything seems to be running fine except my monitor won't get signal

A: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.

A:No monitor signal

Make sure the cables are securely fastened and pushed in. What CPU do you have? Because the CPU may not have integrated graphics, so only the GPU can transfer a signal. Just keep the GPU in all the time, it allows for better performance even when surfing the web (hardware acceleration.)

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!

i brought a computer from Time a few months ago and everything was working ok. since then ive brought a better computer. i decided to put a new harddrive in the Time computer as i needed more room for storing files so i brought a SATA one off the internet (as a friend recommended it. the original one was IDE). i managed to get it all installed (took a while) and everything was ok. but 2 days later i updated the graphics drivers for the radeon 9200 inside it (from ati.com) and since then my computer all loads up normal but when i click on my name to login at the windows login screen my monitor says 'no signal'. so i have to restart my computer about 4 times and it will be ok. ive reinstalled windows and put no drivers on and it still does it. do i need different drivers or is there something i should be doing?

any ideas?

*edit* since i posted this i switched the Time computer on and at the login screen the blue screen appeared!! i looked what it said but it dissapeared in about 3 seconds and the computer restarted. it said something to do with ATI. so im presuming the graphics card.

A:No Signal on monitor

Jammy - pull the new graphics card and put the old graphics card back in. If the problem goes away it's 99% sure you got a bad card (or drivers). I had the same problem (video freeze, signal "disappeared", etc.) with a GeForce.

I apologise if this is in the wrong section...And I apologise for another one of these threads.

But I'm at a loss what to do. Heres some background info...

Ok I bought a computer off ebay which came with a P5VD2-MX-SE MoBo. It hard an external PCI-E GFX Card (Can't remember model) NVIDIA I do believe. Since I've had this computer it repeatedly crashed at random times/Applications crashed (with the windows reporting error) and randomley froze.

I managed to narrow this problem down to the graphics port on the actual mobo been the problem due to onboard graphics working perfectly when I used that, the graphics card itself worked perfectly in another computer and I purchased a new graphics card EAH3650 I think, and the thing still crashed etc. Occassionally it would say the VPU had to reset or something because it failed to respond to commands (when I was using the PC)

A month or so ago I had problems I think it was that the monitor would display anything OR it wouldn't get past the Windows Loading screen and finally I removed the secondary RAM stick and the computer started working fine again.

So the other day I had been using the PC and switched it off for updates, was working fine...Then when I switched the thing back on...I got nothing...No signal to the monitor. After this I figured its about time to replace the MoBo so I purchased a new P5N73-AM and installed everything (correctly I assume) hooked everything up GFX card etc...Even bought a... Read more

A:No signal on the monitor

Always suspect the cable first... and often it is just the connection socket and plug... remove and reinsert to see what happens, as a good first step.

I'm currently running a PC with XP and using GeForce 7100 / NVIDIA nForce630i for my graphics.

I've got an Acer AL1716F monitor plugged in through the normal VGA plug. On the back of my CPU there's also a DVI-D plug and I'd like to plug in an Acer AL1916 in. The 2nd monitor has your standard VGA output so I bought a VGA to DVI-D adapter and tried plugging the 2nd monitor in with your standard VGA cable. Got everything plugged in, turned the power to the monitor (and CPU) on and...nothing. "No Signal".

Is it even possible to hook up this monitor this way? Anything I can do to make my setup work?

Thanks in advance.

So I connected my main monitor onto my graphics card, and my second monitor onto my Mobo's white plug thingy. My main monitor is working perfectly fine with a VGA converter to the white one.

I want an extended screen but I dunno what I'm doing wrong, please help ;~;

hi you need to hook both monitors the graphics card. usually the motherboard graphics gets disabled when a graphics card is installed.

So last night before I went to bed I was on my computer everything was working fine. I come back to use it this morning and my monitors aren't doing anything. The lights are blinking as if they are in sleep mode or something. I have tried plugging the monitors in to my laptop and they both work fine. I have tried another video card in my computer and nothing showed up with that one either. I got it to start up and had signal a few times but now don't seem to be having any luck at all. I also tried putting the video card in to the second slot that I have and that didn't work either. Would this be a motherboard issue or maybe a power supply issue? I'm running out of ideas here.

Thank you for any help!

My husband & his friend built his pc; He knew from saving the info what sort of ram to get when he decided to get more. He got the ram today installed it & well now we have no signal on his monitor.

We Have tried the following

*switching the new ram to a different slot
*tried using the old ram same issue no signal
*tried the monitor on a different pc -- it works
*Shaking out/cleaning the pc thoroughly
*checking the video card & replugging all its parts back/on
*reconnecting the harddrive (bout to do)

Any suggestions because at this point we don't know what is going on. The computer is booting up; it is giving a green light; we had issues the first couple of times when trying to turn the pc it basically stuttered where it'd come on turn off; come on turn off. Finally after re-installing the ram it came on & has come on ever sense so we figured it was due to the ram being backwards maybe?

One day i get up and try to use the computer. I get a no signal floating from my monitor even though i still hear the post beeps my computer beeps after it sucessfully boots up. I reset my computer several times to no avail. I try reseating my graphics card and nothing. I take out the graphics card and try to boot with onboard graphics. I see the normal boot up text and beeps, but after that, the screen is just black. I borrow a graphics card from a friend and it goes back to the no signal onscreen. What should i do? is it a bad mobo or a bad grapchics card? or is it something else entirely? Thanks for your help in advance

i built a computer for my brother. here are the specs.
asus a8n-vm mobo
512mg corsair vs
antec tp 350w
athlon 3500
(onboard video)

the problem is even before i turn the computer on i get no signal on the monitor. when i do turn the computer on, all the fans are running, cd drives work, i could hear hd activity, the light on the mobo is on but still it says no input or no signal on the monitor. i tried reseting the ram, and reseting the cmos, and also tried having only the cpu,ram, and psu hooked up. and the 4[in connector is pluged in. Im using an adapter for the monitor because theres only a vga plug for the monitor which uses a dvi cord. the monitor works fine on a different computer. i tried everything and have no clue why im getting this problem. any suggestions?

EDIT: i just saw a post earllier from johnwill saying that vga to dvi converters dont really work well. so that might be the possiblity. maybe get a videocard instead of using onboard?

A:no signal on monitor

It could be that your onboard vga is disabled. Have you tried using a seperate VGA card or it could be that your monitor is damaged

I have a compaq presario (don't laugh, it was free!) model 5000. When I turn it on, I get no response from the monitor. The indicator light doesn't even change from orange to green. Before I get any wisecracks, YES, the monitor is connected. I don't even get a "no signal" warning. What I do know about the computer: it was purchased brand new, so no refurbished parts; and the previous owner tried to swap RAM cards, but didn't know what they were doing. That's about when the infernal thing came into my possession. Any suggestions?
