Question about HP Pavilion Slimline S3123W Desktop PC - REFURBISHED
Before this happened it would freeze every so often. even when shutting down, it would stay on the "shutting down" screen for way too long. but, now when i turn it on it says the monitor cant detect a signal from the vgi or dvi input, and this computer only came with the vgi input....?
It sounds like your computer has been having some trouble for some time. My hunch is that there is nothing wrong with the monitor at all.
Usually, when you see this warning on the screen that there is no signal, the monitor is trying to tell you that it cannot talk to the computer. This means the computer either a.) will not boot or b.) your video card in the computer has stopped working.
Does your computer make all the usual noises when you start it up? Can you hear the hard drive clicking and the fans come on?
Have you reseated the video connection on the back of the tower?
My guess is that something was going out before and it is now gone. The first place I would look to diagnose this problem is the hard drive.
Hard drives fade to fail sometimes, and when they are fading, the entire computer becomes painfully slow.
Hope this helps
