Cool it :-)

Does it have a fan? Is it working? If not check it has power and replace it if necessary.

Is the heatsink getting hot? Check there is airflow over the heatsink. If it has enclosed ducting blow any accumulated dust out with compressed air.

If the the heatsink is not getting hot than the thermal bond with the GPU and/or memory is broken. This is the techy bit: if you don't feel comfortable with this either get someone else to do it or buy a new video card.

Go to an electronics shop and buy a tube of heatsink paste. Take the video card out of the computer and remove the heatsink assembly (they are usually secured with four screws and/or plastic clips. Remove the old thermal paste off with a plastic or wood scraper (this is important! you don't want to scratch the chip casing or the copper) and clean it off with alcohol. Drop a little new paste on each surface you cleaned. A little goes a long way here, a lot just makes a big mess when you squeeze the two surfaces together, so go easy with that stuff. Replace the heatsink assembly making sure its good and tight and you should be good to go again.

Trying to connect Lenovo IdeaCentre desktop to HP w1907, monitor keeps popping up the message like " no input signal' on VGA or DVI, DVI is always checked as default. Then going to sleep right away. Push...


wow no OS stated, nor model of Lenovo.... (so generic answers)
i guess you have no manuals on any of this. right>?
is this HP question, if the HP monitor works on other PC its ok.
so end HP worry. (my guess is HP is OK, totally) 19"LCD is OK.


leaving what, LENOVO.!! (unnamed? a stinkpad?)
this is a HP forum, so cant tell the hot key for External VGA
on any Lenovo. but you can RTM the book on it. easy.

that HP VGA monitor message means.
1 thing, the 3 video and 2 sync lines are dead.
in non geek means the VIDEO CABLE IS DEAD.
try running the PC in F8 mode this puts WINDOWS< (is it./)
in to LOW RES mode (poor) and all monitors work there.
all. (last 25 years)
if still dead, you need to use the hot key to turn on VGA, on all laptops
my HP laptop as 3 modes, VGA on , VGA off and AUTO.
nice no? that AUTO.'
The PnP wakes up the port. is that magic.

The VGA port must work, and the LCD both.


is this one of those beasts called an all-inone desk top
than name you used tells the helper nothing
as that name used for many form factors.
all in one
regular desk tops.
and more.even pocket pc.
now idea at all what you have (hp is clear on that end=)

How to get laptop connected with vga connector to


Unplug the television. Connect the VGA compatible monitor cable from the laptop's VGA monitor Output to the VGA Input on the back panel of the television. You will need a splitter to connect the audio cable from your laptop to the VGA Audio Input on the television. Never mind if you have speakers connected to your computer.

Press the Device button on the remote control or on the television front panel to display the Device Selection Menu. Select the device you want to view, in this case VGA. The only compatible resolution is 640X480 at a sync rate of 60 Hz.

Do not leave stationary or letter-box images on-screen for extended period of time to avoid uneven picture tube aging.
