Monitor says "No Signal" when trying to wake it up

I had that problem awhile ago, but the issue was a loose connection.

If you test your PC with another good working monitor/cable and still receive a no signal message, then the problem is with your PC.
The solution could be as simple as dust inside the unit interfering with the signal, and needs to be blown out, or try removing the power cord and hold-in the 'on button' for about 30 seconds to a minute; then reconnect the power cord and turn it back on.

Other solutions: open up your PC and take out and put back in the video card; remove the ram memory strips, rub the end gold colored strips on a clean cloth and put them back; or maybe you have a bad video card.

My monitor flashes on and off.If I press any button on the side of the monitor it comes back on. It has been doing this for quite some time. I've checked the VGA cord but it seems to be okay. It seems...

Well, it's impossible for me to say 100% for sure, but I think i know what's going on. It sounds like either the cable for the monitor, or the port on the computer are either dirty, or broken.
What usually causes this is the electrical signal from the computer is getting interrupted. It's the same thing that happens when you try to hold a light switch in between the on and off stages. Sometimes the signal makes it though, other times it doesn't.
Fixing this can be somewhat tricky. I would attempt these steps:
  • Unplug the cable and plug it back in.
  • Try blowing off both the port on the computer, and the end of the cord that plugs into it.
  • If you have another monitor available, plug that in and see if it still happens.
  • If you have another computer available, plug the monitor into it and see if it works.
If none of these help, then something more complicated is wrong with it.
Hope this helps :)

Lost the sound and YES my speakers are on and I have moved the bar all the way up to 100% ,,,not even as much as a peep,, the sound was on last night but its off now and I have tried to fix ix it.....

have you checked:
1. The audio plug that connects to the rear of your computer (not accidentally pulled out partially)
2. The other end of that cable which plugs into your monitor (usually a red and white plug arrangement, but could also be a small stereo plug)
3. That the speaker icon on your taskbar has not been accidentally "muted" (indicated by a red circle with a slash line)
4. Checked your audio properties (right click the speaker icon) for anything out of the ordinary?

If all of the checks above are good, and assuming your audio cable is OK, I would try and reload the audio driver. You could also try the Windows Troubleshooter. Search your Help for assistance on the troubleshooter program.

Ask me for more help.

Cheers, Steve

I have a viewsonic computor monitor...I was hook up to 2 monitors..When I unplug one I cannot get a signal from the one left...check all plugs and wires

Things to try.

Move the signal (VGA) cord going to the monitor from the computer, from the one output, onto the other output.
If you removed the primary monitor without changing your display settings, then your second monitor will have nothing to extend from.
Another possibility is that the second display is disabled since there is no monitor detected.

Also, Be shure the power cord plugged into the back of the monitor, is pushed in all the way. These tend to slip out a little when getting moved around.

Hope this helps.

Open the side of your computer. The card that your monitor plugs into may have come loose. Carefully pull it from the slot (you may need to unscrew it first or remove a bracket that keeps it stable; plus there may be a lever at the back of the card you may need to pull on) and then plug it back in again. It is not uncommon for this card (called the video or graphics card) to come loose when being moved around.
