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,

    Now I have a bunch of question...gee thanks!

    Have you tried to do a system restore?
    Since I have no idea how much you have done, I will add a group of stuff.

    I do think a system restore will solve it but, read through this and apply those that fit.

    Since I have no idea on what all you have done, I have some questions / suggestions.
    1st: Have you Defragmented your computer? If not this month, please do so ASAP.
    2nd: How much free space is left on your hard drive? You need over 15% free space.
    3rd: Have you cleaned out you cookies, temp Files & Temp. Internet Files?
    4th: Every item you add or install anything on your computer, it starts running each time you boot up.This eats up your limited power and processor.To see this you will need to use the CRTL/ALT/DELETE keys to open up your TASK MANAGER
    On the right side you will see a TAB called START UP. Each item that is checked or ********** is running in the background.
    You do not need this stuff running. Its a gift of Microsoft to make it start faster for you and is no longer a needed item since you have so much power.
    Uncheck most if not all items, like MSN or YAHOO chat, Games and anything not directly related to the computer operation.

    And get the drivers for your sound. I am to assume its an onboard sound. You need to go to MFG's web page and their driver download.

    Thanks!

    Then it is still under Warrenty.

    Have them send a technician.

    Most mfg's will. If not take it back. get XP and not Vista. There are a ton of issues with the Vista OS.

Model dx4300. Why does monitor indicate no signal input?


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.

How to switch from analog to digital mode


Any contemporary monitor is able to switch analog/digital mode automatically if connection from signal source to monitor is set up properly.

Connect digital output from your graphic card to DVI input of the monitor. Disconnect any other signal cables from monitor and switch on both devices (PC & monitor). Wait a while. Monitor checks its inputs and a activates digital DVI, because it is only one active input on it.

If none picture excluding error message of monitor is displayed, go through these steps:
1) Check whether your monitor is set for automatic input selection. If monitor buttons have no response try to use analog input to activate screen (any picture, desktop background...) and then get monitor menu access by pressing menu button.

2) Find out what connector type has your graphics card in PC. Possibilities are: DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort and some their options. See Wikipedia for connector look if you are not sure.
Remember that blue D-SUB (VGA) connectors are analogue and you cannot activate digital mode through analog VGA cable.

3) Use appropriate cable to connect monitor to PC.
Example: Your PC has HDMI output. Use HDMi-to-DVI cable. Your monitor input is DVI and common DVI-DVI cable is not suitable in case you have PC with the HDMI.
Note that DVI-to-DVI, DisplayPort-to-DVI etc. cables are available. You must buy right one.

Be aware that "Auto" button is inactive in digital mode of monitor.

Maybe your BIOS switched to VGA output, try plugging in another monitor which has VGA input and change settings in BIOS for default output to DVI.

I loaded Windows 7 and now when I turn on the computer, the monitor says DVI input no input signal and goes to sleep. Can you help?


Do you have the correct driver loaded? Are you using DVI output on the computer? Is there a VGA output? If so, try using a VGA cable while you troubleshoot the video issue.

The problem might be with your ram. Try taking it out and putting it back in. You might also have a problem with the video card. Make sure it is secure and screwed in.

My DVI has no signal but my VGA does! what do i do? Please help me!!!


Your HP2009M monitor supports (3) methods of accepting signals from a computer. They are: 1) VGA, 2) DVI and, 3) HDMI.

You would connect the computer to the monitor using one connection only. Generally the VGA is the least desirable as it is an analog signal. The DVI and HDMI method provide digital paths into the monitor and often perform better. Your computer may only offer 1 or 2 connection choices, so you'll have to choose a cable type that is supported by both the computer and the monitor. The HDMI choice will pass audio signals to the the speakers in the monitor without needing to run a second cable between the stereo audio jack of the computer and the audio input jack of the monitor (located next to the HDMI jack) or to a set of external speakers (unless of course you prefer the external speakers).

The message you're seeing is normal. Once the monitor is connected to your computer, there will only be one active selection; VGA, DVI or HDMI. Since you're using the analog VGA jacks and cable, it is expected that you'll see a message that there is no signal present on the DVI (and HDMI) inputs when attempting to view signals on other inputs.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply, thank you.
