Just had it repaired and hooking it up, but monitor says no input signal. Did we put a cord in the wrong place?

    Thanks got it taken care of. The PC repairman forgot to mention to us that after a new video card was put in we would have to put the monitor cord on the bottom of the panel horizontally instead of the left side/vertically.

Hello there, I am the computer technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya!

Since you had it repaired and transported it home this fault may be due to a loose connection. Or like you say it could be a simple task of placing the graphics cable in the correct graphics output port.

Install the monitor graphics cable into a horizontal graphics output port if possible. Doing this would therefore connect to the Graphics card if one is installed.

Plugging the monitor graphics cable into the vertical graphics output port would mean that you are connecting your monitor to your computer's onboard graphics output. Which will not work if there is a graphics card installed, in which case one must use the horizonal port, found on the graphics card.

If you have checked that the monitor cable is correctly plugged in and your problem continues then one checks the following:
NB: Turn off your Computer before doing the following:
Make sure the graphics card is secure in it's slot, push down on it lightly when the PC is off.
Check that the power connector to the graphics card is inserted: if applicable.
Ensure that the power supply connectors going to the mainboard are seated.

Check the Memory modules, one may need to be seated or cleaned. Clean the gold fingered connectors with tissue paper.

You may also find it of benifit to look at on eof my published works, entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Take care!

SOURCE: tv stopped showing my pc screen through hdmi cord

Try rebooting your laptop while the TV is on and select the correct input with your TV remote.

If that does not work, trying going into display properties in the Control Panel and setting up your TV as a secondary display from there.

- Start > Control Panel > Display Properties
- Settings Tab
- Right click on grey box next to blue box and select "Attach"
- Click Apply and restart your computer.

No signal on tv


Your Samsung has an Input Source button on the remote. If you are getting a "No Signal" message, you either have no cable, dish, antenna, or HDMI input to the television or have the wrong source selected. With the television turned on and/or a cable box, dish etc turned on, select all of your sources until a picture appears.

When I hook my tv up to cable I get no signal, if I just hook it up with antenna it works fine. How do I get my tv to work with my cable cord? Would be nice to view cable channels instead of just 3...


nialbert,

It sounds like you are hooking the cable to the wrong input (digital instead of analog) or you do not have an analog input. If you do not have an analog input you could run the cable through a VCR to convert the signal to a separate audio/video signal and send it to the TV via an auxillary input. Without the model number I can't give you much more help.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

My monitor, keeps saying it is going to sleep. VGA says no input signal, as well as DVI. And I know nothing about computers


If there is no output on the screen, check all you cables and connections and ensure they are snug and secure. If there is still a problem, it is possible your video card is to blame. As a diagnostic step, try hooking the monitor up to a different computer. Or hooking up another monitor to your computer. This will help eliminate bad cables and connections. If a different computer works on your monitor, then you most likely have a bad video card. If you monitor still will not work on any computer, then you most likely have a bad monitor.

Input not supported message appears when I hook the monitor to my dell computer.


This could be many things:

A. Your monitor is capable of receiving more than one kind of video signal - like a TV - and you need to change the input source (see manual).

B. Your computers video card is capable of outputting more than one type of video signal, and needs to be set for your monitor (Control Panels).

C. You are plugging the monitor into the wrong video port.

I need a printable version of how to hook everything up. Please. We have a PlayStaion2


  1. Place your ps2 in an area that will allow for plenty of airflow, and is relatively close to the television that you intend on hooking it up to.
  2. Step 2 Check your TV or monitor for available video inputs. The most common are composite cords, which come with a new PS2. This cord has one plug on one side, with the other side having three ends colored yellow, white and red.
  3. Step 3 Plug the single end of the video cord into the back of the PS2. Plug the other side of the cord into the corresponding colors in your video input on your television.
  4. Step 4 Plug the AC adapter (power cord), into the back of the PS2. The other side of the cord should then be plugged into the wall. A red right will appear on the front of the PS2, signaling that it is on standby mode, and receiving the required power.

My monitor is connected, as is my graphics card, but when I turn my computer and my monitor on, it says that there is no input signal.


Hello there:
I would start by trying a different monitor to eliminate the possibility of a faulty monitor.
if nothing happens you are going to need to investigate the video card. you can turn off the computer and open up the case and remove the power supply to the motherboard cord.
now remove the video card from the board and check to see that it isn't damaged or dirty . you can try to put it into a different slot if you are able to. now just hook up the powersupply cord back up to the motherboard and hook up the monitor to the computer and power up the computer than the monitor and see if it works if still nothing than i am sorry but you will be needing a new video card ok? i really hope that this is very helpful
best regards mike

Dell m992 crt monitor


If it's getting no signal, make sure the monitor is set for the correct input. This would be either analog (if your cord has blue ends) or digital (if the connectors are white). Depending on wt yhat your monitor is, a button on the monitor will help you set that. If it's set for the correct input signal, then switch out a different cable to see if perchance you have a bad cable out of the box. If there is another PC or laptop setting around, plug your monitor into that to make sure it's good and maybe even plug THAT monitor into yours to make sure there is nothing wrong with your video card. Let me know what transpires. If this takes care of things, please help me out by rating it accordingly.

I want to use my laptop as a monitor for my desktop


Check VGA cord connection, possibly try another, shorter VGA cord, plugging in cords BEFORE booting up computer, with monitor power on also. No signal is just computer telling you that it is not connecting.
You may have to go into Setup when computer boots up and turn on or select external monitor as some laptops may require this. Good Luck!
