No input signal go to power save

PAVILION S3020N

HI
I LIVE IN MEXICO AND I BOUGHT MY COMPUTER ON MY TRIP TO US A YEAR AGO. IT WAS WORKING PROPERLY UNTIL IT STARTED DISPLAYING THIS MESSAGE : no input signal go to power save. I TRIED A DIFFERENT MONITOR AND IT HAPPEND THE SAME. I EVEN TOOK THE RAM OUT, CLEANED AND PUT IT BACK, BUT IT DIDN´T WORK. I WAS TOLD BY A COMPUTER TECHNICIAN THAT IT WAS THE VIDEO CARD BUT IN MEXICO IT IS DIFFICULT TO GET THIS KIND OF HARWARE BECAUSE THE PARTS FOR THIS COMPUTER ARE SMALLER, AND THERE ARE NOT IN THE MARKET(IN MEXICO) YET. SO I AM GOING TO ORDER IT BY THE INTERNET IN A US STORE. NOW, I NEED HELP TO FIND OUT WHAT KIND OF VIDEO CARD MY COMPUTER NEEDS, BECAUSE I´VE HEARD ABOUT 128MB OR 256MB, AGP OR PCI (EXPRESS), AND IF IT REALLY IMPORTANT THE BRAND. SO, HOW DO I ORDER IT. THANKS.

Well, you have one of the Slimline models, and there isn't any room for a standard sized Video Card, as well as the power supply probably couldn't handle a standard video card.

The motherboard for this computer has 2 expansion slots. The expansion slot for the graphics card is PCI Express.
Here's a link to the motherboards specifications: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c00910076&dlc=en

You will need a Low Profile Video Card. Here's a listing of some low profile cards from this US online ordering website, newegg.com (they are a pretty good place) http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=low+profile+video+card. This is probably what you need, and I was expecting a much more expensive price tag on one of these cards considering they are harder to find.

What do you use your computer for? Work, or do you play video games? If you play higher graphic programs, get one of the 256MB cards for sure. You may want to go with 256 anyways, but if you only use the computer for internet and work/school, 128MB is sufficient.

Hp pavilion slimline s3020n PC the computer says no analog signal the problem is all the time cant run the computer at all.i have not tried to fix the problem myself


Does the computer turn ON? (do you hear beeps?, do you see lights on the computer NOT THE MONITOR?, do you hear the fans?, etc...) it could be the monitor, try an other one, it could be the video card, swap it with a known good one ,it could be the VGA cable change it, etc... if the computer is all dead try an other electric outlet.

Good luck!
