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.

    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.

No signal when i used vga monitor connector to pc, no problem in dvi

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.

I have an AOC monitor and a Lenovo computer. The monitor comes on and says no signal when and the goes off. I have no idea how to change the resolution when I can't get the monitor to stay on.

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.

Nothing comes up on the screen

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.

Possible Causes:
  1. Monitor is connected via VGA (Blue Connector). Fix by using the input select button to select DVI input)
  2. The video cable is not connected to the correct port on the system (Or not connected at all)
  3. 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.

Replacing monitor.

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.
