You can check these:

Help Adding a 2nd Monitor to ALL-IN-ONE


Try using a VGA to VGA cable or a dvi to dvi cable because dvi-d and hdmi tend to lack the necessary pins to be converted to an analogue signal. A hdmi to dvi cable may also work

My computer starts up but the screen sa ys no signal


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules


Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.


Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty


If its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail.


Even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error.


Make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free.


Restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard


Check the VGA cable connection running from the computer to the monitor.

This cable must be completely inserted into both VGA connection ports, otherwise the video signal is not going to reach the display.


Disconnect the VGA cable from the computer and monitor, then look at the metal connectors on both ends.

If you are missing connection pins, the video signal is not going to transfer between hardware correctly.


To fix this problem, you must obtain a new VGA cable (at any computer or electronics store) to send the video signal.


Examine the power connection on the monitor.

If the monitor is not receiving power, it is not going to turn on.


Turn off the monitor for a few minutes, then power it back on.

Like other computer hardware, the monitor may not initially turn on correctly.


Move the mouse and press the "Enter" key on the computer keyboard.

If the computer is in sleep mode, the monitor is going to appear as if it does not have any display.



Hope this helps.

The spynet watch turns on the but the screen is blank I can hear sounds but can not see the menu screen


When exactly you lost the display?

Just right after turning on the computer?While working in Windows? Or every time you open a program or application?

If problem happened just right after turning on the computer, we have 2 point of failures: Monitor or the VGA CARD/MOBO Onboard.

To test your monitor. While computer and monitor is ON. Unplug the VGA cord at the back or the monitor and check if you will see a box moving across the screen says monitor self test.

If no display replace monitor.

It monitor self test passed. Connect computer to a different monitor and if problem persist then update the video card driver or the motherboard chipset. If all fails then you have to replace your video card or motherboard.

Pls do consider replacing the VGA cord as well.

Hope this helps.

HP Pavilion is powered on. Monitor is flashing green, red, blue and white.


Hi,

The monitor is performing self-test check and proves to be in good condition. Check vga(blue)/dvi(white) cable connections that connects your monitor and your desktop.

I hope this works for you. Goodluck! if problem persists, kindly reply for further assistance.

My monitor says there is no signal from my new Dell Studio


Try reseating the video card in your new computer. Sounds like it may not be seating in the slot properly. Take it out and put it back in with the power off and then hook everything back up and then see if you get video,.
