Are you familiar into the parts inside.?

if not, i will not advised you t do this.

-inside you can see the memory strip/module, resit it again on the slot.

if you are using an external video card, better to resit it too.

let me know.

When i plug up the L1975NW lcd monitor what should show up ?


"no input" means that there is no signal from computer or the monitor cable is unplugged. When you first turn on monitor it usually does a self test and then looks for signal. Not connected to PC will give a no signal. If it is connected but PC is off (not unplugged) then it should go into standby as you vid card will be sending a standby signal to any monitor connected. Sometimes the Plug and Play monitors need to register before it will recognize a standby signal from PC, so plug it up and boot up PC. Then shutdown normally, your monitor should go into standby when the PC shuts down.

Reasons of y signals not going to the monitor


Is the monitor showing a blank screen or is it showing the message NO SIGNAL??

If you have a Desktop try the steps below:
If it is showing the message NO SIGNAL, then the video card in the computer is bad, because when the monitor is bad, it will show nothing at all. To isolate the problem plug another monitor on the computer and see if it displays. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok, then your original Monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same as your original, then the video card in the computer is bad.

If it is a laptop try the steps below:
