Can't open windows, computer screen has

When I switch the computer on, a message: ATTENTION NO VIDEO INPUT floats around a black screen and I cannot get anything past this despite switching it off and on repeatedly. This first started while on a banking site and the screen went blank and after a while came back on and then blanked out again and then I got this message. I have checked all the cables and everything seems to be plugged in properly.
I am using Windows XP (well, I was!!)

    Thank-you, I'll try that. We have been having problems with our electricity supply and we often loose power for 2 hours or more. Could this have caused the problem? The computer is not on, but is plugged in during these power outages

I have a attention input not supported recanagle that continually scrolls around and around my screen and i cannot acces the menu or do anything. I disconnected it from my modem and then from the monitor...


Hello,
This is most likely because your computer is trying to display a screen resolution higher then tht monitor can support. Turn your PC on, and press F8 until you see a black and white menu. Select safe mode. Run safe mode and when windows loads, goto your control panel. Select Display and navigate to the resolution / settings tab. The screen resolution should be set to 1440 x 900 for this monitor to display video correctly.
If you need more detailed information on where to find the display resolution settings in windows I will need the name of the OS you are running... XP, Vista, Win 7 etc..
Regards, Chris

Screen went black and a window came accross the screen saying attention entering sleep mode......and then it said no video input...


It sounds like the problem is in your computer, hook a spare monitor to verify, if you have the same problem, it is your tower that needs to be checked out.

I have a blank screen on my HPf1905 monitor. I have a HPm7330n computer. How do I know if its the monitor or the video card? Monitor shows a message no input signal,then goes to sleep mode.


if the message you recieve is no input signal if only means that you have a problem with your video card, the monitor is fine but you need to have your video card check

Start in safe mode and change the resolution to 1024x768 and 60Hz refresh rate. Restart and reset the resolution at the native of your display and 60Hz refresh.

During setup, got a "INput not supported" message


Reboot the computer and enter into Safe Mode through pressing F8 repeatedly on the keyboard.

If Windows will not come up, then you have to access the system through system restore.

In windows xp, it's c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

In windows vista, it's c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

This is done through Safe Mode with command prompt or command prompt; depending on the operating system.

FLOATING BOX WITH ATTENTION INPUT NOT SUPPORTED


Your monitor has several different video inputs.
Go to the configuration settings on your monitor and select the video input that matches the video cable from your computer.

INPUT NOT SUPPORTED


Start your Windows in Safe Mode (pressing F8) during boot process and adjust your Display Settings to a lower resolution.... say 1024 x 768. Once fixed, you can play around again increasing the resolution a notch at a time. Fix ya!

When your computer is starting up, hit F8 and you'll see the safe mode, safe mode with networking, etc. screen...You should see a choice that says "enable vga mode". Select that and windows will start and the os will select a screen resolution for you. After that, everything will work fine...I hope.


Good Luck!

Attention No Video Input


Check your input cabling and connectors and make sure you have a good input signal. Put another tv on this same input cable and see what happens. Keever
