Question about HP Pavilion Computers & Internet
Just had it repaired and hooking it up, but monitor says no input signal. Did we put a cord in the wrong place?
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.

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.
