    power supply is fine, as it lasts long enough to display the message, then puts the monitors into sleepmode. He left the pc running whilst he was out this morning, came back and this problem had occurred.

    If it is set to hibernate/standby I think you'll have to see if you can get into the bios. Usually "Delete"/"Del"/F10 etc. holding down key until you see the bios screen. Then look for "Load Default Settings" to see if it will skip over your current settings.

    But "no vga" should not show up for this reason. This means there is a problem with your video. Changing the monitor was 1 thing now look at your pc hardware; Video Card. You can get one almost anywhere that sells computers/parts. You open your case watching to see where your video cable connects to the back of you pc - then inside your case. That will be your video card. If you don't see anything like this it's ok, then you have only "onboard" video from the motherboard which does go bad! So you would seat your video card into the proper slot, pci etc. If your an average computer user, a 64 bit pci card will be fine. There about $20.00 compared to the next price up of around $60-$80.00. It's very easy to change out. I think this will be more helpful in solving your problem.

How do I fix the error no vga input signal no dvi input signal monitor going to sleep


Check if you VGA is properly settled in the PCI slot. Try to take it out, clean the slot for dust.
If that doesn't help, it is well possible that you VGA is not working any more.

Will my hp pavilion a 420n support a 19" flat screen monitor


Hello,

I have to assume you are currently using the larger size called a tube type monitor and would like to have an LCD or flat screen type monitor connected to your computer.

To connect to new LCD flat screen monitor to your computer would be exactly the same connection as what you are currently using.

The only problem you could run into is the connector itself. Some of the flat screen LCD monitors do not have the older style connector called VGA, usually blue called DB15, because it has 15 pin connector. They may have only have the newer style called a DVI type. Some do have both types.

Please be sure the LCD you want has the older style DB15 connector to connect to the rear blue VGA input of your compter.

Good Luck

I have a HP m7570n. How do I use a flat screen tv as a monitor


This depends on the TV's available inputs. The Pavilion m7570n has only a VGA output in the standard configuration.

Thus if the TV has a VGA port, turn off the computer and the TV. Then connect a standard VGA (RGB or D-sub 15-pin) m/m cable between the computer and the TV. To use the TV speakers, connect a 3.5 mm audio patch cable between the computers Line-out (green speaker port) to the VGA audio in. Turn on the TV and set the input to VGA (with the Source or Input button on the remote or the TV). Then turn on the computer. Windows XP should find the correct resolution to work with the TV. (If you turn on the TV after turning on the computer, you may get an unsupported signal. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice to restart the computer.) If it doesn't work, you may need to connect a different monitor and set the computer to a low resolution before connecting the TV and the computer.

If the TV only has composite or component video inputs, you will need a VGA to video converter (http://www.svideo.com/pctocomponent.html for example). A VGA to component cable will not work; those are for projectors that read an RGB input. TVs interpret YPbPr.

If you have added a video graphics card, you may have an HDMI and/or DVI port(s) on the card. In that case, check the specs of the TV. Some TVs will support HDMI or DVI-HDMI inputs from a computer. Others will not (since computer video signals are not the same as the signal from a set-top box). If you use a DVI-HDMI connector, make sure to use the HDMI port labeled for DVI and connect the audio cable as with the VGA connection. If you use an HDMI connection, you may need to set the sound properties to that of the HDMI port. (Find the control panel item for sound (under Hardware) and then select Manage Audio Devices. Set the Playback properties. If it doesn't work, use an audio patch cable.) Some TVs have RCA audio inputs for the HDMI-DVI connector. In that case, you will need a female 3.5 mm to RCA M/M adapter (if you use a 3.5 mm patch cable). There is a similar device if you want to use an RCA audio cable. You may need to enable the video ports on the graphics card before swapping monitors.

Some video cards have a TV out. In that case, connect the appropriate connector (should come with the video card). Then connect to the component, composite or S-video input on the TV.

Again turn off the TV and the computer before making any connections.

You will probably need to provide your own cables for must of these connection options.

I hope this helps.

Cpu says no input vga signal, then goes to sleep


The no input VGA signal just means that the monitor is not receiving anything from the graphic card on the tower. Is the card a digital (DVI) output card? You'll know by the connector, it's white and slightly wider than a standard VGA connector. If so, perhaps the monitor is set to the wrong input?

If that isn't the case, and the computer is using an on-board or built-in graphics controller, you could try resetting the system's CMOS settings by setting the clear-settings jumper on the system board, or simply remove the plug and CMOS battery for a few minutes. Check the computer's documentation on the exact steps to do this.

Hope this helps!
