    I have an nvidia 8800 gt and it just started this yesterday 22 Feb 09. While playing COD WAW The monitor displays message that it is going to sleep and the screen goes black. Restarting the computer will bring it back for a few minutes and it happen again. Each time this happens the time becomes les and less so I think it's a heat problem. I'm still tring to come up with a solution.

The graffics card was over heating. It apears the card has an auto cut off switch to turn it off to prevent damage. I removed the card and blew it out with compressed air to remove the dust build up in the fan and componets. Also the graffics card was tight against my TV tuner with little room for air flow. I removed the modem card for I do not need it and moved the tuner card in its place. This gave me an inch of space between them for better air flow. The card is working perfectly again.

K8NF4G MOTHERBOARD IS NOT WORKING


Your Video Card (Graphics Card) is probably bad. To isolate the problem connect another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same NO Signal Message then your video card is bad. If the Borrowed monitor displays and works correctly, then your original monitor is bad. The fact that your monitor displays the No Signal Message on it shows that the monitor is ok.

If you have a laptop, the video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

NO VGA DISPLAY TOSHIBA SATELLITE M300 FOR VISTA


Hi What precisely do you mean by VGA display, is your laptop not displaying anything on lcd screen,or its having problem giving display on an external monitor connected via a vga port.
if there is no display on the laptop LCD screen, then turn the laptop on and observe for beeps sounds and hard disk spinning sound if still no display is available plug the laptop to external monitor and again restart the laptop. if there is no display on the external screen and laptop is displaying well in LCD, Then most probably you need to press some keyboard combination on laptop keyboard eg: Fn + f4 , refer to your laptop manual also.

Monitor gets signal from computer but doesn't display. Monitor will display message that says no signal when unhooked from computer but will not display menu


Sound like it could be corrupted video driver. I would try holding down the F2 key to reach the system bios. Select vga for the video display if in the bios...then save and restart. If you can't get to the bios screen, try F8 and see if you can get safe mode...if so...it should allow pc to use the vga driver and thus hopefully display will work. If you get in and see windows, then you most likely ned to remove the display driver and reinstall it.

If still not working, try hooking monitor to another video port. Might need to get a conversion adapter to fit to vga port, or dvi port or whatever else you might see.

My monitor ( with less that 6 months use) has been going off while someone is using it--- says out of signal and i have to restart the comouter... and this is not stopping even with a restart


julezj, You will need to connect your monitor to a KNOWN GOOD pc that DOES NOT have the screen saver set to do a time out when the keyboard is inactive. Whenever you state a problem with a monitor on fixya, please mention the monitor technology you are dealing with. CRT (TUBE) or LCD flat screen!! IT HELPS IF WE KNOW TOO!!! Did it really display a screen message that read "out of signal" or did it read "OUT of RANGE SIGNAL"??? Is this monitor used to display HIGH resolution gaming and other high refresh rate imaging? Will this happen if you only have the WIN-desktop showing on the screen? Get back to me with more CLUES as to what happens on the screen. 12fixlouie Bye for now.

E-machine computer not displaying anything on screen


Press F8 while booting and select Safe Mode to see if you can get video. If you do it could be a driver problem and you could uninstall the Display Driver in Device Manager and try to boot normally and look for an updated driver. Reboot into Safe Mode again and select Cancel if prompted to install drivers when restarting to avoid reinstalling the existing drivers if it fails to operate after doing so. If still having issues it could be a failing video card or motherboard if the video is integrated.

Monitor receives no signal, hard-disk light is on


You might need to change your AGP video card (the card where you attach your monitor cable). If a separate video card is not present, you might be getting your video directly from your mainboard. If the latter is the case, you can buy or borrow a PCI card with video port, insert it in a PCI slot in your mainboard and attach your monitor there.

NO SIGNAL What do I do?


These messages are normal when the computer truly goes into suspend mode or loses the video signal (such as when the computer is suddenly turned off).
If the monitor displays any of these messages when the computer should be displaying video , do the following items until an image from the computer appears:

1.
Ensure the computer is really sending a video signal. To bring the computer out of suspend mode: move the mouse, press the spacebar, and press the suspend button on the keyboard twice (the suspend button has an icon that looks like a quarter moon).
2.
Ensure the video cable is connected (and connected to the correct video port).
3.
If you are trying to view video from a set-top box, DVD player or similar device, use its menu system to set the proper video output channel so that it matches the video connection are using. For example, if the monitor is connected to a satellite receiver via a second HDMI connection on the back of the receiver, select HDMI-2 (or similar) using the remote control for the receiver.
4.
Turn off the monitor using the monitor's power button and then restart the monitor.
5.
Cycle the power on the monitor as follows:
1.
Turn off the monitor. The power light on the monitor should be off. Leave the computer turned on.
2.
Unplug the power cord.
3.
Wait 5 seconds.
4.
Plug in the power cord.
5.
Press the power button on the monitor to turn on the monitor.
One of two things happens:
1.
The image from the computer displays on the monitor and you can use the computer again. This indicates that the monitor was unable to detect that the computer had awakened from suspend mode. Turn the monitor off when it is not being used or disable suspend mode. For some computers, updating the BIOS corrects these types of suspend problems.
2.
The power light on the monitor comes on but the screen displays one of the messages again. The monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer that it can detect and use. Continue using these steps to adjust the Windows display resolution to the Monitor's native (default) resolution.
6.
Adjust the Windows display resolution to a setting that is compatible with the monitor:
NOTE: The native resolution setting for your model of monitor can be found in the Monitor User Guide, the monitor's product packaging, and product specifications.
1.
Restart the computer and press F8 repeatedly after the first logo screen.
2.
Select Safe Mode .
3.
Windows should open showing a Windows desktop with lower resolution and fewer colors.
4.
In Windows Vista, click Start , Control Panel , and click Adjust Screen Resolution in Appearance and Personalization.
In Windows XP, click Start , Settings , Control Panel and then double-click the Display icon and select the Settings tab.
5.
Move the slider bar until the native resolution for the monitor is set, click OK and restart the computer.
6.
If the native resolution is not available from the slider bar, click Advanced Settings , click List All Modes (from the Adapter tab), select the resolution, and click OK .
If the native resolution setting is not available as a selection in Windows, you can temporarily use 1024 x 768 to complete these steps. However, you should update the graphics driver on the computer. Updating the graphics driver can provide more display resolutions to Windows; possibly including the native display resolution for the monitor.

Check for S3 video driver updates at S3 Graphics Home Page (in English).
*
Check for Intel video support and downloads, Intel Downloads (in English).
*
If you own an HP or Compaq computer, HP hosts video drivers and some video driver updates at the HP Software and Drivers site (in English)
7.
Connect the monitor to another computer that you know is working to determine if the monitor should be serviced or replaced:
*
If the monitor displays an image from another computer, you know that the monitor works. Troubleshoot the video connection and graphics adapter on the computer.
*
If the monitor remain blank when connected to another computer, the monitor signal processing hardware may be bad. The monitor should be repaired or replaced.

When it's turned on, the light on my monitor blinks but the screen doesn't display anything. Why might this be happening, and how can I fix it? Monitor will go on for a split second, then screen will go...


they normally turn off like this when they aren't receiving a video signal from the pc (same as when you turn off the pc). make sure that it is connected properly, and that the video output is activated. try disconnecting from the other monitor while its on and connect the problem monitor...if it still isn't working then there may be a problem with the cable or the monitor itself. Try another VGA or DVI cable. Hope this helps
