No video


Your Windows 95 System runs on a lower screen resolution and would have a low profile HW used for the same purpose. If you connect to a new Monitor the resolution capabilities of the monitor would not match the VGA capabilities of the old Mother Board Video Chip. How ever this troubleshooting needs to get more info from you. Is the display showing any signal while the system starts, atleast the initial Bios startup screens. If the monitor is not responding to even that, you may have no other option than getting a monitor which can match the system configuration. There are third party devices which can be added to the system externally or internally to enable the latest LCD to work on this board but i may not recommend. Good Luck.

VGA connection works, DVI does not


Everything seems perfectly normal...

When you connect the computer to the monitor via an analog VGA cable, you get signal on the analog input.
When you connect them via a DVI cable, you feed the monitor's DIGITAL input, so the monitor doesn't get any signal on it's analog input, and informs you about it.
You have to select the digital input from the monitor's On Screen Menu, and then start the computer up - you should see the picture OK.
Also remember to set the display resolution on your computer to match the optimum (native) resolution of your monitor - this will give you optimum picture quality. In case of VA712B it will be 1280x1024.
Good luck and please come back with a testimonial if helped.

I turn on my pc all fine screen says no signal help please


Verify that the VGA cable is fully seated and connected. If you can test the computer on another monitor or test another computer on that monitor. Are you getting any video display on the monitor? Does it display the start-up screen then goes away when windows starts? If so start the computer and press F5. A menu will come up and select to start computer in VGA mode. This should bring up windows so you can change the screen resoloution to something the monitor can handle. If the computer does not display anything and the monitor is testing good then the on-board video or video card might be faulty. You could change the video card if it has one or add one to the system if it has on-board video. You could also try re-setting the BIOS jumper to clear the cmos or pull out the watch battery for 20 seconds. Another thing to try is to disconnect all hardware...cd-rom, hard drive, floppy drive, and memory dimms and see if it boots up with display. If that works the you will need to re-install each piece of hardware one at a time and re-boot until the problem happens again. Once it does that is your problem device. You could also try swapping out the power supply and see if that is the cause of the problem.

Secondary monitor from a Laptop


If your laptop doesn't automatically detect the external monitor, there will be a function key you need to press to activate the external monitor connector. It's often on the top row of keys, but different manufacturers put their function keys wherever they like. The key will normally have a marking that looks like a little monitor screen. Connect your external monitor, hold down the F or Fn key and press the monitor key when you find it. Usually the first press will turn on the external monitor and turn off the laptop screen, then the second press turns the laptop screen back on. Some brands or models may not turn off the laptop display, though.

No signal on first boot


This would usually indicate that there is a problem that is causing your computer to not boot correctly all of the time. What you have described could be many different problems and without more information I cannot say which one it is.

1. Hard drive. I have ran into Hard Drives that for some reason do not start up correctly right away when you put power to them. This can cause the initial startup to hang possibly indefinitely.
2. Video Card. Something probably firmware is causing your video card to not start up properly when power is first applied.
3. PSU. The power supply could cause similar problems if it cannot supply enough power because the highest power draw is when you first turn on the computer. When you push the reset button the power is already being supplied to most of the components and the ones that did not have enough power to start properly before can do so now.
4. CPU. If the CPU has some minor problems it can cause similar problems. In any case to fix it you can try clocking down the CPU but you are better off replacing it.
5. RAM. I have had similar problems with RAM. Clocking down the RAM fixed the issue.
6. Settings in BIOS. I would check to make sure the setting for init display on boot is set for PCI-e.

No any video signal from the video card


When you power on your computer do you hear any system beeps from the PC speaker? When the computer is turned on it will run through a system check and one of the things it checks for is the presence of a working video card. One beep typically means everything checked out ok and your graphics card is working and it will continue to boot. If you are getting past that initial test I would next look at the monitor and see if it can handle the signal that is being sent to it. Are you not getting any of the boot up text display?
