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!!)

Hi Austin it sounds as though you have a problem with your graphics card drivers and your tv will not accept the lower resolution. Do you have another screen that you can connect to prove/disprove my theory? If your tv will not accept the lower resolution input then you need another screen to enable you to sort it out. Hope this is helpful.
Take a look at the back of the monitor there must be a cable which is connected at the back of your computer tower.
If you take a look at the back of your computer tower you will see that cable has a big plug with two screws on the top of it. It could be blue in color or may be grey. ( The name of that cable is Video cable )
Now what you have to do is to take that cable out of the computer. Now switch on the computer.
If you see a message on the screen saying " NO INPUT SIGNAL " :- That means your monitor is fine. If it does not shows that. Then your monitor is bad.
Remember the power cable of the monitor should be connected while doing the above steps.
Now incase you can see the "NO INPUT SIGNAL " message on the screen. Even then the problem persist.
It might be possible that the Video cable has gone bad. You need to consult a hardware technician for your monitor.
Hi, You haven't specified what monitor you use but the gray message is most likely due to your screen not being able to handle the high resolution. Try setting it to a resolution below 1600 x 1200. Best wishes, Graemevm
Check that your monitor is connected properly and tightly to the computer. If it is, then the monitor may be bad. Borrow a friend's monitor and try to see if it works, if someone else's monitor works, then replace your monitor.
Problem with the monitor, monitor cable, or video output. For monitor, if you have more than one input, make sure it's set to the correct one. Try a different cable. Try a different monitor. Check your video card settings--if you see the BIOS bootup screen while it's coming up then the Windows splash screen, then monitor blanks out, it's a Windows display setting. Boot into safe mode, then change settings--
Turn the computer on or Restart the computer
Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected (the top option)
Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
When you are finished with troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.
The video driver isn't set up correctly for the computer. You need to boot into safe mode - after powering on the computer, press the F8 key. You will be shown a menu. Choose Safe Mode with networking. The computer will boot using a very basic video driver. Right click on the screen and select properties. Click on the advance tab. Click on Driver => Advanced => Update driver. Once the driver has been updated. Go back to the drivers tab and click on mode. Select one of the modes. Close everything and restart your conmputer normally.
