Problem with the monitor, monitor cable, or video output. For monitor, if you have more than one input, make sure it's set to the correct one. Try a different cable. Try a different monitor. Check your video card settings--if you see the BIOS bootup screen while it's coming up then the Windows splash screen, then monitor blanks out, it's a Windows display setting. Boot into safe mode, then change settings--

  • Turn the computer on or Restart the computer
  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected (the top option)
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.

Optiplex 745 monitor goes to sleep randomly


In regards to your issue with your monitor: For a monitor to display "no signal input" there is likely a problem with the monitor making a connection to your input source (yes I know duh). First and easiest thing to fix this is to check your cables going between your computer and monitor, if your computer and monitor start out working and then fail to communicate, there is a good chance that the cable might be coming loose just enough that the connection fails. I might suggest that if you have, as you say another computer, that you try swapping monitors to check where the problem lies.

Hope this helps some.

My HP desktop fan turns on as does the green light, but there is a constant beeping sound and no display on the monitor


This error message mean that there isn't video signal from the video card going to the monitor.
Try reconnecting the video cable to the monitor. If this does not work then you may have a faulty video card.

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.

MONITOR WON'T STAY ON. not connected message then it goes off


Hook a spare monitor to the computer, if okay! problem in the original monitor, if both show the same symptom, it means the Video Graphics Card in the computer is defective. If possible change the video cord from the computer to the monitor, sometimes these cords fail.

I have an AOC monitor and a Lenovo computer. The monitor comes on and says no signal when and the goes off. I have no idea how to change the resolution when I can't get the monitor to stay on.


When the computer is booting up, can you see the POST? No matter what resolution you set the computer to, you should at least see that if your computer is indeed working. If not, make sure your monitor is set to the correct input (DVI or VGA); there may be buttons for you to go into a menu system to select input. If you can see the POST but the monitor says "no signal" when Windows loads, then you'll need to go into SAFE MODE to change the resolution. To select that, press F8 just when Windows is beginning to load.

When using computer for about 10 min, monitor goes blank with an error message of"No Input Signal" then computer rebuts several times. Any idea's?


Its possible that your computer maybe having a driver conflicting with your monitor. My suggestion would be reinstall the software that came with your monitor. If you don't have that go to the companies website that produced the monitor and download the newest monitor drivers.
As well for an extra double check, make sure that all wires connected to the monitor and the computer are in place.
(might check your monitors energy saving setting)
