Here are some troubleshooting ideas:

1. If you have a LCD monitor, look for a source button on it and try pushing it (with the computer running) and see if it cycles between analog and digital.

2. If you don't have a source button, try the auto adjust button.

3. Try unplugging the power from the monitor for 30 seconds, then plug it back in, and turn the monitor back on.

If none of the above works, then it's possible that your video adapter isn't working.

If possible, try connecting another monitor to the computer and/or connect the monitor to another computer. (I know most people don't have a second PC, maybe a friend or neighbor can help with this.)
This will help you isolate where the problem lies. If the monitor works, then the video adapter may be bad. Depending on the model of the computer, you may be able to have a new one installed.

Hope this helps!

How do I fix my no source signal?


If you are referring to "no source, no signal or check your monitor cable", or something like that message on your screen, it means the monitor is not able to connect or "read" your computer unit.

The first thing you can do is check the cable that goes from the monitor to the computer if it's loose. Try the monitor on other computers using the same cable if it works. You may also try switching cables.

If it is working, do the troubleshooting on the desktop computer side, check the power cable if it's securely plugged-in. Check the power outlet. If you're done checking the obvious and still not working, have it checked by an experienced computer service technician.

Thank you for using fixya, hope this info helps you.

The screen reads no signal


eMachines flat-screen monitors offer high quality at low cost.
eMachines flat-screen monitors are compatible with most brands of PCs.
Issues with eMachines flat-screen monitors can arise from faulty power sources, cable problems and incompatible settings.
These issues can be resolved by testing step-by-step each possible cause.

Plug the computer's power cable firmly into a working AC outlet.
Press the computer's power button.
Check the LEDs on the front of the computer case to confirm that the computer receives power.
Plug the eMachines monitor's power cable into a working AC outlet.
Press the monitor's power button.
Check the LEDs on the front bezel or power button of the eMachines monitor to confirm that the monitor receives power.
Orange or blinking LEDs indicate low power or no signal.
Green LEDs denote a working connection..

Perform a monitor self-test.
Switch off the monitor.
Unplug the video cable from the monitor.
Press the eMachines monitor's power button.
An eMachines logo, Windows logo or "no signal" message indicates that the monitor is working properly.

Plug the eMachines monitor's video cable into the video port on the computer.
Attach the monitor's included DVI-to-VGA adapter to the monitor's VGA cable if your computer has a DVI port (15 or 25 pin-slots with 1 side slot) in place of a VGA port (15 pin-slots, no side slot).

Press the eMachines monitor's input button to change the monitor's setting to match the computer port used.
Set your monitor to DVI if connected to your computer's DVI port.
Set your monitor to VGA if connected to your computer's VGA port.

Connect the eMachines monitor to a known working computer with a known working video cable if the problem persists. Contact Gateway, eMachines manufacturer, if the monitor issue is not resolved.

Display not shown?

1) Does the monitor show No Signal?
If so go on.

If not;

Use another known to be good monitor, and monitor cable, on your desktop computer. Be aware that the problem may be the monitor cable.

Or use your monitor cable, and monitor, on another KNOWN to be working computer.
The monitor isn't receiving a Video Signal. Means the signal is not reaching the monitor. Could just be a bad monitor cable.

2) If the monitor is good, and the monitor cable is good, the problem is the computer itself. The computer isn't working.

You may see LED lights light up, hear fans running, and maybe even the Harddrive spinning.

Problem could be the Power Supply.

A) IF, all of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

B) EACH fan only uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

C) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power. Just depends on what Processor it is.
(Older Intel Pentium III processors, and AMD Athlon processors, use less power than 51 Watts)

Not enough power? BIOS will not turn the Processor on.

Solution is to test the Power Supply's 3 main voltage power rails, or use another KNOWN to be good, COMPATIBLE power supply, for a test unit.

The 3 main voltage power rails are;

A) 3.3 Volt power rail

B) 5 Volt power rail

C) 12 Volt power rail

Test is done with an economical Multimeter, set to DC Voltage.

Post the model number of the IBM Netvista desktop computer. You will find it on the back of the computer, next to the Windows product key,
(XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX), or up on the side of the computer tower.

How do i get rid of "CHECK SIGNAL CABLE" on my 17" flatron wide monitor?


"Check Signal Cable" message is shown on the monitor only when their is disconnection between PC & monitor or if the cable is faulty. You can get rid of the message, which is built-in the monitor. Try changing the faulty cable.

My screen doesnt get a signal from the computer what could be wrong?


There could be three reasons for the same .
1. Loose signal cable: Check and reseat the VGA or DVI cable from the back of the system tower to the monitor.

2. Bad monitor : Disconnect the monitor cable from the back of the monitor check if the monitor displays anthing .

3. Bad video card : Try connecting an alternate monitor to check if the same is displaying anything on the screen.

Computer powers up, but monitor shows a self test


Your video output is bad. Either the video card, or the onboard video built into the computer. You need to swap out the card or add a card to bypass the built in video port on your computer.

Computer not booting up


Could be one of two things:

1. Signal cable from monitor isn't hooked up. (either monitor end or computer case end)

2. Video card in the computer is damaged and not putting out signal. This is unlikely though as usually this will trip the motherboard into beeping when you turn the computer is turned on.

Monitor not working


If you have another cable to try that's a good bet. or buy one... you can always return it if that's not it. tho i suspect if you jiggled the cable and it worked thats the most likely suspect.
