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.
VGA no signal means "no signal" from the computer on the VGA (blue plug) cable... ...if the computer works check the cord for loose connection or get a new cord...if the computer is hooked to the digital cable (DVI/white plug)...set the signal source on the monitor to digital...
Hi, 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.

I have the same monitor & just had same problem. Did you find a solution to your problem? This is the second time my monitor has done this. The first time I had problem i unplugged it and disconnected it from pc. Plugged it into power source and blue pilot light came on then went off. I did see the LG logo on screen before it shut down. After several times doing this and pressing the power switch repeatedly it seemed to reset and recognized it was not receiving a signal and indicated this. I then reconnected monitor to pc and all appeared to work fine for several days. Now I again have same problem after sitting over night.
I have repaired similar FPD models. I have one of them on this very desk. The GatewayFPDmodels develop problems after a couple or more years of use. The repairsare fairly easy for the savvy technician. The power inverter board inthe back of the monitor contains some capacitors, they may be470 and220 mfd or 680 mfd depending on when they were made, @ 10 16 or25volts, with a 105 deg. C temp rating. They go bad due to heatissues and the currents they have to filter. Replacement of thecapacitors usually restores operation. Use capacitors of the sameratings as original for replacement.
Be advised, turning the monitor off when you are not using it will extend the life between these repairs.
Same problem here, but after using the plugging/unplugging method it eventually stopped all together. So, I took it to a local monitor repair shop (AM Stereo, Seattle). The problem is a power supply issue where the capasitors go bad. They fixed the monitor by replacing the capacitors for $70. In there experience, all monitors, regardless of brand, tend to use the same cheap capacitors which fail. He replaced them with better quality capacitors which may make this monitor better than it ever was. I'm back in business with a great monitor!
