    Are you using the onboard video, or an add-in video card?

Either way, it appears as though whatever video hardware you are using is on it's way out, due to your having tried two different monitors with the same results.
If you are using the onboard video, take a jaunt to your local computer parts store and spend a few bucks on a PCI-Express video card. If you're even remotely handy with a screwdriver it's a ten minute install process, and will save you the expense of having a tech do it for you.
By the same token, if you are already using a third-party vid card, remove and replace it.

It is the video graphics card, or the motherboard, but you can sub out the ram memory one at a time as you test. It might be a bad stick of ram which would rule out the above mentioned

Compaq D315 showing no input signal


Check if the cable between PC and the monitor is tight and re-plug it.
Try using a different monitor - to check if monitor isn't broken. If another monitor works - it's a problem with monitor. It could be just a wrong chosen input - if it's true specify please your monitor type.
Try using the monitor on a different PC - if it works then you've a problem with your Compaq D315. Probably a problem with graphics.

My packard bell lcd monitor shows orange then sometimes green light but has totally black screen. If power supply giving insufficient voltage would this cause above problem?


> insufficient voltage cause ?

Well, anything is possible, but other things are more likely:

1. loose connections of the "data" cable between the monitor and the computer's video-card;

2. an electrical "short" in the data-cable;

3. a "dying" video-card.

So, try the "free" stuff first:

Check the connections.
Try a different cable.
Try connecting the monitor to a different computer (laptop?).
Try connecting a different monitor to your computer's video-card.

Then, consider buying & installing a new video-card.

Power on - blank (black) screen


Disconnect the monitor signal cable from PC and switch on your monitor. It should show some logo with Red, Green and Blue colors with a message similar to "No signal". If so, your monitor is working fine. Sometimes if the brightness and contrast is set to zero using controls present in the monitor, it will not show up anything. check wheather somebody set your monitor brightness and contrast to zero. If so incease them. As a last try connect to different PC and check before approaching a service center. I hope this will help you out. :)
