It could be that one of the computers supports analog and the other supports digital. You should be able to switch between the two input methods directly from your monitor via the buttons in the front.
Hope this helps.

Monitor flicker


Have you updated any software, drivers, any hardware changed? Have you reseated the monitor cables? Changed the resolution? When it's in safe mode the resolution is different, you can check it in Display Properties, by right clicking an open area on the disktop and selecting Screen Resolution, then boot to normal desktop, check screen resolution.

Has black screen that says no signal input check video cable. Video cables checked and are good.


If you are so sure that cable is good and plugged in properly in both the end ( ie monitor as well as cabinet) and teh computer is turning on ... then you can try to turn the computer on in the safe mode

fore that when its turning on - keep tapping the F8 key on the keyboard and it will give you an option where you can select that you want to start it in the safe mode ..

once its on then you need to reduce the screen resolution for that

right click on any empty place on the desktop and go to properties.

it will open a window which says Display Properties under that look for a tab which says setting and from there you can reduce the screen resolution

You can get back to me if it does not help you

Sir i an having a intex crt monitir model 151. when i switch on the system booting is fine when windows open ther is no raster only a messege (high frequency) is comming.when i connect cpu into another...


That is because your screen resolution in very high..means out of frequency of the monitor. Restart your pc and press F8 to get safe mode options.once you get safe mode window select Enable VGA mode using up or down arrow keys and press enter. Now you will get your desktop.

Now right click on an empty space in desktop and go to properties and go to settings tab. In screen resolution tab change the resolution to 1024 by 768. Then press Apply and OK. Now you can restart and see your computer works fine.

My computer will turn on but my monitor does not get a signal and I've tried this on two working monitors and two different power chords. The lights on the keyboards don't even work. Any solution?


I was just dealing with this last night. My pc would come on, but I kept getting a "No Signal" message on my monitor. I first plugged the machine into a known working monitor. It worked fine so that eliminated the video card issue. Then I plugged the monitor into a different computer...it too worked. So I knew that the monitor was good. I then switched the cord from the faulty monitor and still didn't get a signal. I proceeded investigating the issue. I found that if you boot the machine in safe mode, it actually caught a signal. So...I figured it must be something to do with the resolution. My solution: Boot the machine in safe mode, change the resolution in the control panel and reboot the machine. If it doesnt catch the signal booting in safe mode, I suspect it is a faulty video card. You are likely to find what you are looking for online at zipzoomfly.com or newegg.com

No sreen after startup window


Boot your system into safe mode and reduce the resolution to your monitor. It is set to high and blacksout because of memory. Besure to use F8 in order to enter safe mode before windows start.
Good Luck

No video display


If the video card is built into the motherboard then try starting in safe mode and reinstalling the drivers from scratch. Download the latest drivers from the dell website. Safe mode will reduce the resolution and use a generic VGA driver. If your video card is plugged into a PCI slot try unplugging the video card and using a different slot and going through the same process. If you are still not getting any output to your monitor and you are positive the monitor is fine then you may need a new video card. To be sure, if the video card isn't embedded to the mother board, you could take it out and try it in a different computer. Hope that helps.
