Check the audio jack plug from monitor to cpu if connected correctly. The audio jack plug should be connected to the sound card for audio out. You can also check if the volume in the monitor is adjusted or mute
VGA no signal means "no signal" from the computer on the VGA (blue plug) cable... ...if the computer works check the cord for loose connection or get a new cord...if the computer is hooked to the digital cable (DVI/white plug)...set the signal source on the monitor to digital...
Try unplugging the power cable then pressing the ON button few times (yea, while the power cord is unplugged although it may sound silly), afterwards plug the power cable back in and try turning the screen on, if still don't works then its probably one or few capacitors have leaked and need to bee replaced.
If you still have warranty on it then its the time to use it,
If not you can try fixing it at an electric shop or try opening it by yourself, find out what capacitors are damaged and replace them.
A number of things can cause "No Signal" on a monitor
1) Check the cable between the monitor and PC is properly connected 2) If the PC has more than one display port try changing the display port the monitor is plugged into 3) Try an alternative cable between the monitor and the PC 4) Check that the correct input is selected on the monitor
