Question about Computers & Internet
Haven't used computer in few months since IDE cable was messed up. Bought a new IDE cable today installed it and started my computer, when i started i could see my screen come on for a few seconds (Saw words and everything else) and then went black and my monitor went on standby.
Got on my laptop and plugged my monitor up to my laptop and monitor worked fine.
Plugged my monitor back into my old comp (Desktop) and once again i started it and it showed words for a few seconds then blacked out and went on standby and said ''No Signal'' Don't know what is wrong would please like some help! Thanks
I have post on my link how to simply troubleshoot that..
but by the way.. here are some tips that you can do..
first check your CPU if it is still running after the monitor is black out..
if it is running it means it is not your power supply.. but im not telling it not that totally..because maybe your power supply is malfunctioning...try to remove the memory and then clean the connections of the memory..the coppers i mean..then put it again in place properly... try to open your pc again.. if nothing happens try to contact me at my ym...email@example.com..

Since you opened up the PC the first thing to do would be to make sure the graphics card (if it is a standalone card) is seated properly. Remove it, blow out any dust, and re-install it. If that does not fix the problem, or if the graphics are built into the PC, try getting a cheap video card (or borrow one from a friend) and that should fix the problem, since you have ruled out the monitor as the problem.
Also, it could be a problem with the power supply. I'd chase down the graphics card side first though. If that doesn't work, try the same procedure with the power supply.
Note: I have run into instances where an AGP slot got "zapped" by someone opening the case and not taking proper static precautions, so be careful, always unplug the PC and ground yourself to the case before touching anything. If you try a video card you know is functioning and it still doesn't work, pick up a PCI graphics card and see if that works.
