Re: DVI no input signal......VGA input active.
Are you running an additional Video card? Or are you using the built in one.
You might try cleaning the connector / plugs with acetone from finger polish remover or de=natured alcohol.
Never jam anything on a computer.
If its an add on card, remove it and reboot. Shut down and reinstall card and reboot.
keep me posted please,

This machine has both VGA and HDMI outputs. Depending upon your monitor, you have one of the two cabled up to it. Some monitors will auto-detect which input is active, but others do not. Check the monitor and ensure that if is has dual inputs (VGA/DVI) (VGA/HDMI), that you have the correct input source selected. This is usually done from the buttons on the monitor itself.
I have both ASUS and LG monitors with multiple input choices. On both, when the monitor is turned on, it remembers the last input source. Both monitors (and presumably yours, as well) have an INPUT selection in their SETUP MENU.
So, I'm suggesting you search your monitor for an INPUT selection option, then choose "VGA" rather than DVI / HDMI / AV / COMPONENT / CABLE / ANTENNA, etc.
Hope this helps.
When the computer is booting up, can you see the POST? No matter what resolution you set the computer to, you should at least see that if your computer is indeed working. If not, make sure your monitor is set to the correct input (DVI or VGA); there may be buttons for you to go into a menu system to select input. If you can see the POST but the monitor says "no signal" when Windows loads, then you'll need to go into SAFE MODE to change the resolution. To select that, press F8 just when Windows is beginning to load.
you need a dvi to vga adapter not a dvi to vga plug and you must also go into your graphics card setup catalyst control center if its ATI Nvidia Display manager for Nvidia if you boot the computer with it pluged in and you can see the boot screen on bolth displays then its an os thing just right click and select the display manager the activate all display's through the managers
The monitor connected to the system is set to receive video signals from the DVI port on the video card and it is not getting a signal.
Monitor is connected via VGA (Blue Connector). Fix by using the input select button to select DVI input)
The video cable is not connected to the correct port on the system (Or not connected at all)
The monitor is on, but the tower is not powering on or failing to complete the Power On Self-Test (POST). It the power LED on the tower is NOT on, or solid or flashing Amber then the tower is not posting. Flashing amber is normally a bad power supply, solid amber is the motherboard.
What type of monitor do you have? Most monitors will come with a DVI-to-VGA adaptor.(Sometimes and some models.) Also, when you say the monitor will not power on, do you see a message like "No signal detected" or anything like that or do you get nothing what so ever?
To verify it's not your system, connect a VGA monitor to your computer to see if it works. If it does, you know it is the monitor. Good luck.
