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.)

A: 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:

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.

I have the problem that my monitor sometimes does not recieve a signal. It appears that the computer has powered up and i can hear the PC working and all the mouse and keyboard lights are up and running. I have switched monitors and sometimes the second monitor will work fine, sometimes not. Sometimes rebooting works, sometimes not. I haven't changed the system physically in any way eg. added RAM etc. I removed the extra cards and vaccummed them. Thought i had solved the issue. But now a month later it has started happening again. I suppose i would like to deal with this situation whilst i can still use the computer and access the internet and before it stops, maybe, completely? I did hear, i think, one long peep on booting up. It just caught me by suprise and sounded different than normal. Oh! and when my daughter was using it the other day, it just blanked out and there was no signal.Thanks

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.

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

Hi guys, I recently upgraded my PC after struggling with my old one for years and years. I was using 2 screens with that computer, but on this new one the monitor wont detect.

The monitor in question is a ViewSonic 17" ve710s. It uses a VGA cord. My GFX card is a 1080ti. My main screen, the BenQ works in both the VGA and the HDMI. The ViewSonic only has a VGA, and I had to buy a little converter thing just to get it to plug into the GFX card VGA port. The monitor itself is old, but it works. Except it won't detect.

You guys have any idea's? I'm at my wits end on what to do. I don't have the coin (I saved everything for this new PC), but I'm willing to go out and buy a new monitor if I have to. Having only 1 monitor is ridiculously inefficient for my work. The GFX card has 1 HDMI slot, 4 Displayports and a VGA slot. I'm worried if I do buy another monitor, that it won't work either.

I am posting this for a friend whose computer seems to have died yesterday.

It is a newly built PC.

AMD Socket 754 mobo
Athlon 64 2800+ CPU
450 Watt PSU
1 GB (2x512) DDR RAM
265Mb Geforce FX 5500

I built this PC for him about 5 months ago. All parts were ordered new.

He has had no trouble until now.

He turned it on last night and opened his browser and the PC froze. He did a forced reboot and nothing happened. The fans turn but no beep and nothing to the monitor. Sounds to me like a ground short.

Could it be anything else? It has been really hot lately (28 C)(approx 90-95 F) could it have overheated and fried the CPU. It seems unlikely to me cuz it was only on less than 2 minutes before it froze.

Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am gathering all possible causes since I am unable to get to his house to repair it for a few days.

Thanks in advance,


A:No signal to monitor

Reseat the memory and video card, maybe its just a little loose; not all systems will beep in such a case.

Another possibility is that the power supply has partially failed. If you have another one to swap in then its a quick thing to check.

Hey guys, I'm having a problem. My old p4 2ghz prescott from 2002 made quite some noise. That's why I decided to replace the cpu fan(not the heatsink or anything, just the fan). because it was hard to fasten the new fan to the heatsink( it was slightly larger than the old one, so the screws didn't fit), I disconnected the old fan, and put the new one on top. Before I did this, I took out the graphics card to have some room to place my screwdriver. I also unplugged some cables like 1 for the motherboard power(the one that has 4 connections 2 by 2 in a square shape) and one for the floppy drive. I connected the new fan, put my card back in, connected the other stuff, and then the signal on my monitor was gone. I hear the fans spinning, I see some lights, etc. I hear no beeps whatsoever

What I have tried so far:
Test the monitor+monitor cables on another pc-works perfectly
put another graphics card in my agp slot-doesn't help
double checked to see if my card was inserted properly and deep enough
disconnected the floppy drive, the hard disk and the cd/dvd drives-didn't help
double checked the motherboard power cables. I didn't touch the first one, and the second one only fits in 1 way.
clear the cmos-didn't help

Does anyone have any ideas what it could be? I'm thinking it either has something to do with my processor(maybe it broke because I pushed too hard on the heatsink??.. who knows) or there is some cable wrong, although I have no id... Read more

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.

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:

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.

what video card and what driver?

Go to control panel -> administrative tools -> Event viewer

Pull up last few warnings get Event ID's and sources -> go to www.eventid.net type in the event ID and source and it sometimes will tell you if its an incompatible driver and what version you need. I needed catalyst 7.6 to be compatible with my monitor on my last computer, I had 7.7 and it would not return from sleep mode.

In most cases I have seen it is almost always a compatibility issue between the drivers and your hardware, not always just your graphics card or chipset.

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 have had an issue like that before, tho my issue was kinda stupid, but I share it anyways,

I have a game card installed in my computer, and found out that your monitor "HAS" to be plugged in to the game card and not the motherboard itself, otherwise it wont turn on, or you get a message sayin, please reattach to game card on screen, also check to make sure that your monitor cable lines arn't kinked in anyway and check the heads for any bent wires that dont like they are suppose to be. that would be my guess, common error for me lol hope this helps

hope you guys can help me. been searching for the solution but none seem to work

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.)

You need to provide full and detailed specs of the hardware you bought.

I have an Envy and an AOC monitor that I purchased just under one year ago. Worked perfectly since the day I opened the boxes and set them up but I recently moved and now I can't get the monitor to get a signal. I've tried unplugging, holding down power buttons and a couple other things but still nothing. I'm pretty confident I'd be able to test a few other possibilities but I don't know *what* to check. Also, if it's something covered under warranty I'm running out of time as it expires in 4 days so I need to do something fast!!!

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 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?

Ok heres the problem.....and its really, really annoying me!
I bought:
Abit KD7
512mb PC3200
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!


A:No Signal To Monitor

Uh oh...That doesn't sound good.

Are there any POST beeps?

You probably need the newest Abit BIOS flash, it may not have supported teh 2100+.

Hi! I'm building my first gaming PC. This is what I have:

AMD RYZEN 5 1500X 3.5GHz Quad Core Processor
MSI-B350M PRO-VDH ATX AM4 motherboard
Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB (1) DDR4-2666
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1050Ti 4GB graphics card
CoolerMaster Masterbox Lite 3.1 microATX Mid Tower Case
EVGA B3 550W 80+ Bronze Fully Modular ATX Power Supply
LG 25UM58-P 25" 25601080 60Hz Monitor

The issue I'm having is that I've connected the HDMI cable from the graphics card to the monitor and its not picking up the signal. I tried switching which hdmi port it went into in the monitor, I got a displayport to HDMI converter and plugged that in by itself to the monitor, then plugged both the HDMI and display port from the Graphics card to the monitor, still nothing. Everything seems like it's running smooth inside but when I was putting it together I was confused about the vga and perif cords that came with the power supply. It doesn't look like they go anywhere. My graphics card seems like it gets it's power from the motherboard and the only outlets it has are the outer dvi, dp and HDMI outlets. Any idea what it could be? Am I missing some other part? I've attached some pictures to help. Thank you.

While playing any game, my monitor blinks off with a No Signal message and a few seconds later my computer finishes crashing and I have to reboot. I've replaced the graphics card, ram, and motherboard, and ensured all drivers are up to date, but I'm still getting the exact same issue. It only happens when playing games - I can leave it running the desktop for as long as I want.

Any suggestions on how to fix it?

A:Monitor - No Signal

Hello simplex409,
Does it blue screen before crashing ?.
If so, zip up your minidump files and we will take a look at them, maybe they will tell us what is going on.
To find them go to, C: > Windows > minidump.
Zip them up, and upload them with your next post as an attachment.
Also can you fill in your system specs, thanks.

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.

Hey there I'm sure you have dealt with plenty of this but I've tried everything I can think of to get my new build to at least show video. This is my new rig:

Video Card: GIGABYTE GV-R465OC-1GI Radeon HD 4650
Ram: OCZ Gold 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EARS 1TB 5400 RPM
Mother Board: ASRock M3A770DE AM3 AMD 770 ATX
CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 630 Propus 2.8GHz

Now the problem is that I had plugged an old monitor into the vga slot on the video card but I don't get a signal to the monitor although everything else including the graphic cards fan is running fine. Please if anyone can help I would be greatful. Also let me know what you think of the rig. Thanks.
