Hi kymani,

Try this:> Click Start>right click my computer>properties>hardware tabb> device manager> scroll to Monitors> choose uninstall>ok. Reboot pc and windows will detect and install the software for your monitor, check to see all systems go. If this does not resolve the issue, repeat steps substituting "display adapters" for "monitor". You may need the install cd or downloaded(updated software) to proceed with the adapters, but, if I remember correctly, you won't need it, anyway, don't worry about losing things, everything is replaceable or re-installable. If you need assistance with down loading new software, please look for me in "find experts - anaanymous - ."

No signal input


First, of course, make sure everything is plugged in properly and tightly. If that doesn't fix it try hooking up another monitor. If you have one. That will tell you if your monitor went bad or it's something with the computer itself.

COMPUTER IS FROZEN..ERROR MESSAGE SAYS CHECK SIGNAL


So the message you get on your screen is telling you that there is no signal coming from the computer, Screen and computer are different parts, the screen is not your computer.

So this means that your computer is either not connected to your screen or not turned on. if it is turned on and properly connected, you have a hardware problem, take or have someone come over to inspect the pc in person.

Computer does not boot up


Computer has three short beeps as it starts? computer RAM (memory) related issue.

If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.

Hope this helps.

Data is not sent to the monitor


The first thing to do is to pay attention for "beep" when your press the power button (or the reset button) to turn the computer on or reboot it. The beeps that a PC makes tells you a lot about the state of your computer. I couldn't quote for you the exact beeps to listen for, but your manual for your motherboard may tell you. Different beep pattersn tell you what is wrong with a computer.

I think for many common motherboards it is something like 4 beeps to tell you the graphics card has failed. Don't quote me, but that is at least along the lines of how it works if not the exact number.

If you're getting no display after starting your computer make sure you hear one beep. Then, listen for other activity. If you're computer has a floppy drive, listen for the 'floppy seek'. Otherwise, listen for hard drive activity. If it sounds as though there's activity along those lines but still no signal/display on the monitor perhaps check the cable between your PC and the monitor. Never hurts to just make sure the monitor is turned on of course.

If your monitor is on, and the cables are connected securely I wold restart the computer again and check for the beeps. I would be certain to count them and check the manual. Your graphics card may have failed if you hear abnormal beeps (more than one as one is usually the healthy indicator). If you hear no beeps then the PC is not even getting in as far as testing it's devices and could quite possibly be a motherboard failure.

I just got a new computer and is al pugged in ,but my moniter is not working right. Its all brand new, computer, monitor and speakers. help please


This sounds like more of a problem with the computer then with the monitor. The monitor is just responding the the signal.
What I have seen in the past, when I see the power save mode/blue/orage, is that the computer is having motherboard problems.
Since this is a brand new system, I suggest you call the place you got it from, and find out how soon they are going to be either giving you a new one, or how soon a tech is going to be on-site to fix the one you have.

If you got it through a retail store, call them first, but odds are, they will tell you to contact HP. But something worth checking. Depending on the store is how they handle return/replacement policy.
If you do have to call HP, have the computer information handy, they base everything on that (with Dell's, it the Service Tag, I don't know what HP uses).

1/2 of 1% of new computers are DOA, so this is not something completely unusual.
That's why they have warranties.
And with that said, the warranty will cover everything, except your time on the phone with them.

When i turn my pc on it tells me in a blue box no signal but the pc keeps running but i cant see anything i bought a new graphics it still doesn't work i bought a new monitor still doesn't work


The No Signal thing is your monitor saying it doesn't have anything from the PC to display; the PC has nothing to do with that.  Try refitting the card to the PC to make sure it's in there right, and if your PC boots then you should see something (especially if your cables are all plugged in right and your monitor is paying attention to the interface the PC is on, not some other source it could be fed (e.g. SVHS, composite, DVI-D...)

Computer or Monitor problem?


Seems like you have a bad motherboard. Try a different keyboard, mouse, and VGA cable, and see if it works. I fnot then you deffinitely need a new motherboard.
