How do I get out of no input signal


Hello
The video signal is not getting into your display.
Check the connections on both sides of your cable (display side and display card side). If that didn't help, switch off your PC, make sure youre display card is in its correct place (try taking it out and putting it back again). Switch on your PC and check again. If the problem continues, try replacing your display card.

Dell backlight indicators


A computer monitor has a front-mounted LED that displays its current status and flashes in the event of an error. When an error occurs, the flashing may be accompanied by an error message on the screen. If the screen does not display an error message, the problem most likely falls into one of four common categories.

Unsupported Display Mode A video card has the ability to send output to the monitor at many display resolutions and refresh rates. However, no single monitor is capable of supporting every possible display mode. When the video card sends an unsupported display mode to the monitor, the monitor shuts off to prevent damage and blinks, or displays an error message. Standby Mode b> When a monitor detects no video signal from the computer, it assumes that you have turned the computer off and enters standby mode to reduce power consumption. Dell and HP monitors display an amber light when in standby mode. The status light on an Apple monitor blinks slowly. Incorrect Power Supply Some monitors such as certain Apple Cinema and Studio displays use external power adapters. Because different power adapters may have similar connectors, these monitors are designed to detect when an incorrect power supply is connected and blink the status LED rather than attempting to turn on. In the case of an Apple display, the LED blinks in an alternating short and long pattern. b> Backlight Failure b> A flat panel LCD display has an LED or fluorescent backlight that illuminates the pixels and makes it possible to see the contents of the screen. If the backlight fails and requires replacement, the monitor is unable to display any information. In some cases, you may be able to resolve this issue by turning the monitor and computer off, disconnecting and reseating all cables. If the monitor still has a backlight issue, it requires professional service.

Dell optiplex light turns orange


Does anything ever post on the screen when you hit the power button?

Maybe the monitor is bad or the video card inside the computer is bad. Normally if the video card is bad the monitor will display a message of No Signal. If you are getting no message then I think your monitor is bad. To isolate the problem you need to put another monitor on the computer.

Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, family member or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed Monitor displays and works, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does the same as the original monitor then your video card is bad.

My Dell Inspiron does not boot up only the solid amber light on the Motherboard on I try everything and still nothing works please help


Not so sure about this but I hope this will help.
-try to disconnect all the cables from the back (monitor, keyboard, mouse, usb's, power cable, etc.)
-then disconnect all the card (video card, sound card, NIC) if all are integrated then you dont have to.
-connect just the power cable
-try to turn on the computer and check if it beeps
-if it does not beeps need to replace the motherboard but before you do this check if the fan will spin even for a single second if does not spin then you also need to replace the power supply as well
-if it beeps then turn it off again.
-connect the video card and connect the cable of the monitor, keyboard and mouse
-turn on the computer then check if theres any display
-if theres no display check for any beep indication. and right it down on a piece of paper on how many times it beeps and if its long beep or short beep.
kindly provide an email if this things does not work so that I can give you a resolution.

To start, please don't be technical as I know next to nothing about computer problems and fixes. I have a Dell XPS and a wide monitor from Dell that I have had since December of 2005, with no problems....


The meaning of the beeps depends on what type of BIOS you have on your system. Since you're saying a short continuous beep every 60 seconds it sounds like you have no power, you have a loose add card inside your computer or a electrical short. Since you have mentioned your monitor, you may have a loose video display card. Do you have power and will the computer turn on but no display ?

No signal on monitor when powered up 3 long beeps


Hey there,

Beeps generally point to RAM, this would also be why the monitor has no signal as the computer wouldn't be POSTing. I'd suggest reslotting the RAM and if this doesn't work then swap out the stick with a new one :)
