    Install a video-card in your PC, and connect one monitor to each VGA-output on your computer. Does the monitor connected to the "new" video-card display anything, when you start the computer?

Hi - recently I've been getting a no signal message on my monitor - system is still runnung but no video. I have checked cables - all are OK - The computer is a Gateway DX4300


Three major components usually is causing this kind of problem. One is the memory card. Two the video card . and lastly worst is the motherboard. Check and clean your memory card first then put it back to its place of slot. Start your computer. If you hear one beep but still no pictures, the problem lies in your video card. If there's still no beep sound and picture, and you think your memory card is good, try to clean your video card, then start your computer. If there is still no picture, and you think your video card is good, then you have a problem with your motherboard. Indication that your cpu is working were, beeping sounds, lead lights blinking or changing sequence is present. If it is present, your monitor has a defect an needs to be replaced.But if none of this is present, we have a motherboard problem.

The monitor on my computer screen is fuzzy and shaking. After turning the computer on and off a few times, I get a clear picture. What's causing this?


With out seeing the screen and the connections to the video card I can assume that
it is the cable that is loose but it may also be the video card itself and or the LCD
monitor.
1. check the video cable from the monitor to the video card port
2. check the cabinet (PC) for accumulated dust around the mother board or the video
card and the CPU ( central processing unit). Dust is a heat collector and may render the
mother board and component to act erratic or fail all together. check all connectors
I hope this helps. Have a great day!

Every time i turm my computer on the monitor comes on and then says going to sleep the computer shuts down will not stay on. I can"t do anything, it keeps shutting down and the monitor shuts down.


this is a computer problem not a monitor problem whens the last time you cleaned out the computer as in air blasted to clean out any dust if the power supply over heats this would cause a shut down the other thing would be a problem with the mother board open case look at the stuff inside and see whats dirty cpu, power supply , motherboard dust a #1 killer of motherboards

I have a Gateway GT5056, no monitor will work.


The video card you have is integrated into the motherboard. You would have to buy a whole new motherboard to fix the problem. It would almost be cheaper to buy a new computer though.

Can the 310S PC Desktop Use HDDs running at 7200 RPM?


If there are unused connectors on the hard drive ribbon cables, and unused molex power plugs, then yes. Be sure to securely mount the drives in the case. Also check the jumper settings for all drives.

Signal to monitor goes in and out, mostly out


Hopefully, it is just the on board video that has gone bad, and not the motherboard. When you install a video card on a PC, that has on board or integrated video, you will need to access the BIOS screen on start up and disable the on board video. That way the video signal will come from the new video card and not the on board video.

I hope this helps,

Monitor went blank


Let's try to isolate the problem:

-If possible try both monitors on a different computer.

-does the computer makes any sound when you turn it on?... do you get any image at all when you turn it on?
