    Not the Monitor, NOT the monitor cable; must be internal. What is the model number, and is it a Packard (Shudder) Bell? Model number should be located on the back of the computer, next to the Windows product key. (No. I do not care for Peckerd Bell. I see very LITTLE support offered, and what I do see is they want to charge Big $$$$ for any support) Post back in a Comment.

    Hi joecoolvette Packard Bell 2770 Graphics ATI Radeon X1600SE/Intel Core 2 duo/MS Model CUB IDOOA7, The monitor works quite well with my other Computer and the cable is fine, but over this past Month or so I was getting multi coloured lines on the screen and the Computer closing down, this got steadily worse and now I have a black screen. The computer itself is rumbling on and seems to be working, but just not communicating wit the screen or any other? I've ordered an ATI Graphics Card from EBay as a last resort, and should arrive by Wednesday , so hopefully it does help?

    I would say sir that is the exact thing to do. I commend you on your computer hardware prowess! (Don't 'e-slap me', lol! Power unplugged from computer, FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions) When graphics card is installed, (With monitor cable to it now), you will have a crude display on your monitor. Once drivers, and user interface software is installed, it will be OK. (User Interface; ATI Radeon graphics card? ATI Catalyst Control. Nvidia? Nvidia Control Center )

    And wow that was a quick reply! You must be online now. If I may ask what graphics card are you going to install, and what is the Power Supply maximum rated Wattage?

  • Les Reid Nov 03, 2012

    Hi Joecoolvette. The only information I have so far that I have ordered (ATI Radeon HD5450 512MB PCLE VGA/DVI/HDMI-P/N KP8GM. I am no expert in this field, so as regards the power supply maximum rated wattage, I am unsure at this point in time. I will not be back on my desk till 16.30 Sunday UK time but many thanks in the meantime.

    Suggest find out the system requirements for the graphics card. Specifically the Power Supply Wattage requirements. Probably will state 300 Watts or greater. I don't suppose Packard states what Wattage of power supply comes with your computer. This means looking at the label on the Power Supply. Sometimes on the side, sometimes on top. You'll probably be alright with the stock power supply. If you start having problems you may want to look into the wattage of your power supply.

    Hi Joecoolvette. AC Input 220-240V 2A 50HZ. fixYa has Emailed me to say they will close my promlem because it has run i'ts course unless I give more information, so I have said you are on the case ? But as I have said,The graphics card will not arrive until Wed/Thur so I would like to stay in touch !

SOURCE: HP Compaq 2710p: External monitor does not display anything


The display properties indicate the hardware is working, so it's likely just a setting.

On HP/Compaq models you will see a picture, usually on the F4 key that looks like a screen with two lines beside it.

You need to hold down the Fn key(bottom left) and then push the F4 key at the same time to cycle between LCD, external or both.
If it is a newer model, a menu will pop up when you do this asking if you want to duplicate the LCD on the external, switch to the external or extend the desktop onto the external. Select the appropriate setting or continue holding down Fn while pressing F4 to cycle between the settings to the one you want.

If you have re-installed the computer at some point with anything other than the factory recovery set this may not work and I will have to give you a longer set of instructions.

If this works please rate this as fixed, if not reply back and indicate what version of windows you're using and I will post the instructions for the "long" way.

My monitor says :"No signal" What is the problem?

To help you troubleshoot the monitor 'No Signal' issue, please find the steps given below:
- Turn off your computer.
- Unplug the cable running from your monitor to your PC and plug it back in, making sure the connection is firm. The most common cause of this error is a loose cable.
- Re-attach the cable running from your monitor to your PC. If the monitor is still not displaying a signal after firmly reattaching the cable, the problem could lie with the cable, especially if the cable has visible damage.
- Replace your monitor with another monitor if possible. If the 'No Signal' error still appears, the problem does not rest with the cables or the monitor, but with your PC.
- Open your PC case and locate your video card. Remove the card and then replace it firmly in its slot or, if possible, insert the video card into another slot on your motherboard. A video card that is not making a firm connection will not display images to the monitor. Close your PC case and test the monitor again.
- Replace your video card completely. Your video card may suffer from internal damage that is not allowing it to output a signal.
If issue persists, it is recommended to contact your monitor manufacturer for further assistance.

DS240WB worked fine but seems now not recognizing signal and fails to turn on

The reason why your monitor might not be recognizing a signal is because the graphics card in your pc might not be correctly plugged into a pci slot or your internal graphics may have a short somewhere. If the monitor turns completely off after it cycles Then it might be an internal problem with the backlighting in your monitor screen

Flatron W1943 sb monitor goes into power-saving mode. Does not display data.

If the monitor is displaying the "Power Saving Mode" signal to the monitor, then the monitors internal VGA board is functioning, so you can rule out a broken monitor. However I have seen monitors blow the internal fuse to the VGA board which causes a false "SLEEP" signal. If this be the case then it will require replacement of the fuse (usually a microfuse soldered onto monitor internal board) or most likely a monitor replacement.

To test:

Option A: you can connect another monitor to the monitor output on the back of the computer and see if you get a display. If this monitor goes to sleep, then it is likely that your Video card is malfunctioning. If you get a display, then it is definately the monitor.

Option B: If you have another computer, you can attempt to connect the monitor to another computer. Also most modern laptops will be equipped with monitor output, so if you have one you can check it. If the monitor sleeps, then it is definately the monitor. If you get a display, then it is definately the computer video card.

Hope that helps,

I have no signal on the screen, but does through the vga port. what it could be?

Check the choosen video input on the monitor to match the used one. Check the video cable for bended pins. Check with other monitor if there is a signal from the videocard. Check if you have connected the monitor to the right video connector, I mean, if your motherboard has integrated internal video and also there is another videocard, usually there is no signal on the internal one. Check the monitor with another computer to see if the problem is with the monitor. If the monitor is faulty, open it and check for inflated capacitors on the power supply board. Replace all of them if so. Check the buffer transistors between the video connector and the processor on the signal processing board.

Set up TV as monitor for laptop with Fedora

Try pressing the function key and the monitor key (Fn+ F key). This will cycle through the display modes (Internal monitor, external display, or both). Your monitor key will look like one of the following: 5eab006.jpg009092c.jpg41a2ff0.jpgUsually after you reboot the default setting should be to run the internal display only. Your monitor could possible have gone out, possible the LCD panel or the backlight.

Monitor screen begins as computer is booting up and then screen goes black. Message says there is no signal.

If the power light dims or changes color after the no signal message comes up, that means the monitor went to sleep.
While the monitor is plugged in and on and the computer is also on, Try unplugging the VGA cable from the monitor. wait 30 seconds and then plug it back in o see if the power button light comes back to normal color and the screen flashes on.
If not, then the monitor is not getting a signal from the computer.
If using a desktop computer,Try a different cord or try the monitor on another computer.
If using a laptop, you need to activate the laptop to use an external monitor. That can be done through the display settings, OR, most laptops have a shortcut key feature which usually involves pushing the Fn key and one of the F keys at the same time. The F key may say CRT/lcd or have a picture of a monitor and a screen.
If the power light does light back up and still no picture, There may be an internal issue on the monitor

Mitsubishi diamond pro says "no signal"?

You have tried the monitor on more than one known good computer, yes?

I believe about 4" inside this monitor in the back the vga cable or connector connects to a board with an in-line connector. Can you see if this connector (internal to the monitor) in connected?

Good luck...

Vga Port

hey there!

by default, you cannot connect a tv signal cable like that..mainly because, the monitor does not have a built in tuner :)

what you need to do is get yourself a tv tuner card, internal or external and you're good to go :) you would need your entire PC though..some external tuners allow you to connect without the PC itself :)
