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.
I bought two new sticks of RAM 4GB each, still... Read more

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.

Hey, so yesterday my PC and monitor were both running fine however come today, I turned on my PC and monitor and the monitor has no signal to the computer. All connections are plugged in, I've tried using the motherboard dvi port instead of the graphics card, I've also tried a hdmi cable as well and still the same result.

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. I've tried using the PSU from my other machine but it still happens. I've tried assembling it outside of the case 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?

2-year old gateway desktop computer with AMD dual processors and 1 g memory. Few days ago, the screen froze. Restarted the computer and nothing happened. No signal to monitor, no beep, no sound. The power light and fan were on. Hd light came on for a while. Put recovery disc from gateway or window xp installation disc in DVD drive and again no signal to monitor. The DVD light did come on for a while. No sound from computer during the process. The monitor works.

Any way to fix or buy a new computer.

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


-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

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?


A: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.

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?

So, I came in this morning and twice while playing some games my monitor just decided to not get signal and go idle. I then replaced my 8800gt with my brothers 8800gt to see if that was the problem and right on startup, no signal right off the bat. I then plugged my old one back in thinking I'd try to see if it was a driver issue, but same thing with no signal right on startup. I've tried removing and reseating ram one at a time for faulty sticks. I've tried an old PCI video card thinking my PCIE slot might have shot, but still no luck. I've reset the CMOS, and checked every other possibility I've come across. I've tried just about every single solve I've come across through my google searches and nothing seems to work. Any help on this matter is appreciated. My monitor is a 22" acer, PC is a dell XPS 400.

EDIT: I've also tried another monitor and still nothing happened, so that rules out a faulty monitor.

A:Monitor Not Getting Signal

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.

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

Hello I have just recently went over to a friends house and I brought my cpu along. Well we were trying to fix his and were using mine as a model to see what goes where. I opened it up and tilted it to get a good view. Then I closed it back and turned it on but the monitor said no signal. I had my cpu on earlier and it was workimg fine until now. Everything else is on just the signal thing. Could anyone help me please? It would be appreciated.

A:No signal on monitor help please


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.

The Video cable from pc to monitor is OK

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?

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?

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.

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.

My monitor gets no signal sometimes. for example I will leave the pc off for like 5hrs, then turns on the monitor says no signal. but each time I reseat the gpu it goes back to normal and does not experience lost signal not unless if turning it off for like 5hrs. this is a new pc build came from dubai and shipped to philippines for like 2months and this problem was like 3weeks already.

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.)

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 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!

A:Hmm No signal to Monitor!!!

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.

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)

1 Floppy drive.

15inch CRT monitor (working).

A:No signal monitor

Pull the memory out and see if the system beeps then

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

A:No signal on monitor

You repaced a fan - does it start when you power on? (cpu fan)

Is it plugged into the CORRECT mobo socket?

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

Just built a new SFF PC (shuttle SB83G5) put all components together everything is plugged in and in the right place, been checking for hours, even put it together again, and every time i power up all fans and lights are on but no BIOS on the monitor, just says no signal, iv heard of this before and ive tried running the monitor off both the internal GPU and my 6600GT but to no avail, ive tried taking the battery out to wipe the CMOS but when i boot i get the same problem, im running out of solutions and starting to think ive broken something. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

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?

My pc was working fine and suddenly I am getting a no signal message on monitor. I replaced the battery in the pc but still having same issues. Not a pc guy so kind of at a loss on what I can check next. It's an alien ware build with dual GEFORCE 450 cards. About 4 years old.
