The computer isn't giving you that message; it's coming from the monitor. It means the monitor is working properly but is not getting any signal from the computer. Your computer is not starting up for some reason. You'll need to find out what is keeping the computer from starting properly.

That more than likely means the video (graphics) card inside the computer is bad. The monitor seems to be ok if it is displaying No Input Signal. Isolate the problem by connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it t the computer. If the Borrowed Monitor displays the No Input Signal then your video card inside the computer is bad. If the Borrowed Monitor works and displays your desktop icons, then your original monitor is bad and the video card is ok.

My computer is an Acer Aspire ASE-360-U-A3503 desktop computer and I still cannot get the power up button to shut off no matter how long i press on it. Then the monitor cable connector on the CPU is not...


You seem to have two problems here: The power button and the video connection.
It should take 4 seconds of continuously holding the power button in for the PC to shut off, unless the settings under Power Saving say that doing this action should have a different outcome. Check your settings. If all is correct and you still cannot turn the machine off, you may have a deffective toggle switch. This is something you can get at Radio Shack or other electronics store.

Regarding the video connection: There's a set of buttons on most monitors where you can choose the input source. Your monitor has probably been set inadvertently to receive a DVI signal while it's connected via a VGA cable, or vice versa.
Good luck!

Upgraded RAM, Now CPU Says "No Input Signal. Go To Power Save."


I would check the documentation to ensure you purchase the correct memory. If you purchase the wrong memory type, it could cause issues like these.

Got BSOD on my XP computer and have traced it, I think, to the video card - getting "no input signal - going to power save". Would this prevent to computer from loading or going into safe mode?


Yes, a bad video card could prevent the computer from starting at all. Your monitor is going into power save mode because the computer isn't sending a video signal. This could be due to many things, power supply, memory, video card, processor. Try blowing all the dust from it and reseating all the components.

Hp w1907 monitor not detecting vgi input from original HP x3122 computer


It sounds like your computer has been having some trouble for some time. My hunch is that there is nothing wrong with the monitor at all.

Usually, when you see this warning on the screen that there is no signal, the monitor is trying to tell you that it cannot talk to the computer. This means the computer either a.) will not boot or b.) your video card in the computer has stopped working.

Does your computer make all the usual noises when you start it up? Can you hear the hard drive clicking and the fans come on?

Have you reseated the video connection on the back of the tower?

My guess is that something was going out before and it is now gone. The first place I would look to diagnose this problem is the hard drive.

Hard drives fade to fail sometimes, and when they are fading, the entire computer becomes painfully slow.

Hope this helps
good luck

It means that the monitor is not receiving a signal from the video card of the computer.

Possible failures are as follows:

1. The monitor input cable is no longer connecteds to the video casd.
2. The computer is not powering on
3. The video card has failed
4. The input Select option of the LCD is set wrong

No input signal


Hi, there is a posibility that the issue is caused by your system unit. NO INPUT SIGNAL occurs when system unit fails to start properly. One possible reason is the power good signal was not sent back by power supply to mother board. You can check for any shorts or grounded device in your system unit. If you can reseat all the cables (power cable, IDE cable), expansion cards, memory cards even microprocessor that will be good. Another thing you can try is to power cycle your computer. If you are not confident enough to do those stuff you can call your computer vendor and ask for assistance.

Power problem


That seems to point to a problem with your video card.  Try taking it out and putting back in.  The power saving mode message comes purely from the monitor and only means it isn't getting a signal.  Also check the connection to the monitor and maybe a different cable.
