Monitor malfunction, says VGA Input: No Signal and goes to sleep

When I turn the monitor on, it says VGA Input: No Signal, and goes to sleep. I heard from an employee at a computer store that it could be the video card. I opened the back of my Compaq Presario SR2011WM to try and remove the video card, but it seemed to be connected with the entire computer chip. I would like to know if the video crd is actually the problem, and if it is, then I need to know how to remove it to replace it with another one.

    I take it this problem suddenly appeared? It sounds like you are right. That model usually has a built-in video card. That probably means it's got to be serviced by the factory. However, if you had a replaceable video card, it would be in one of the horizontal slots that are on the bottom half of your computer. There are two areas where things are connected. At the top of your computer will be the keyboard, mouse and maybe the video plus some USB ports.

If it was your video card, you would have no picture at all. Try to boot in safe mode and do into your options and make sure your hibernation is not on. Only other thing I can think of, it could be *********** board.

No signal when i used vga monitor connector to pc, no problem in dvi


Michael,
I have both ASUS and LG monitors with multiple input choices. On both, when the monitor is turned on, it remembers the last input source. Both monitors (and presumably yours, as well) have an INPUT selection in their SETUP MENU.
So, I'm suggesting you search your monitor for an INPUT selection option, then choose "VGA" rather than DVI / HDMI / AV / COMPONENT / CABLE / ANTENNA, etc.
Hope this helps.

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.

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.

HP w2207 no vga input signal, no dvi input signal monitor goes to sleep


There is no signal coming from your PC.
excuse some of the solutions as sounding dumb, but we have to explore all possibilities.

Check the power cable going into the computer
Check the power input disconnect switch on the back of the power supply and make sure it is on
If the pc is plugged into a power bar, make sure it is turned on and the breaker isn't tripped
press power on the PC and make sure the lights are coming on.

now for the solutions that may actually help.

disconnect the power from the PC
if the video is on a card, remove and re-seat the video card
hook the power back up, connect the monitor and try again.

the CMOS on the computer may need to be reset.
I hate totally clearing the CMOS, so what I usually do is remove 1 stick of ram and power up. If the system is alive again, power down, put the RAM back in and power back up.
If that doesn't work, turn the system off, put the CMOS jumper to the CLEAR position for 15 seconds, put it back to the Normal position and then power back up.

Basically, if the monitor works on your friends system but not on yours, the the problem is your system, not the monitor (assuming it isn't working fine til it gets into windows...if that's the problem, you have a driver or configuration problem)

I have a HP Pavilion A6403W, when I turn on the monitor the message comes up on the screen VGA input no signal and DVI no signal then it goes to sleep. CAN YOU HELP PLEASE


The monitor is telling you that it's NOT receiving a signal from the video card connected to your computer. Check the cable that goes from Monitor to Computer. Make sure it's secure. If it's secure, I would recommend you re-seating the video card, just make sure you remove power from the computer and you ground yourself. If you are not comfortable doing this, then I would recommend visiting a local mom and pop computer shop and have the technician take a quick look, should only take about 5 minutes for a decent tech to diagnose the cause.

Hope this info 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!
