My computer does not support a digital cord and the monitor is stuck in digital mode - check signal cable - digital - will not even pull up the menu - although when I attach a digital cable and hook it up (to a friends computer) it works fine. I need to figure out how to get it to analog!

Is your computer connected via the HDMI cable? If not pull up menu and change to another input type. If it is HDMI, check cable ends. You can test by plugging into a Blue ray player and see if video plays on monitor as a test method to verify video coming from computer incase your video card has died for some reason..
Your monitor is going into sleep mode since it can not see an HDMI signal coming across the input. Check your cable though.. sounds like the biggest culprit to me.
Any contemporary monitor is able to switch analog/digital mode automatically if connection from signal source to monitor is set up properly.
Connect digital output from your graphic card to DVI input of the monitor. Disconnect any other signal cables from monitor and switch on both devices (PC & monitor). Wait a while. Monitor checks its inputs and a activates digital DVI, because it is only one active input on it.
If none picture excluding error message of monitor is displayed, go through these steps: 1) Check whether your monitor is set for automatic input selection. If monitor buttons have no response try to use analog input to activate screen (any picture, desktop background...) and then get monitor menu access by pressing menu button.
2) Find out what connector type has your graphics card in PC. Possibilities are: DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort and some their options. See Wikipedia for connector look if you are not sure. Remember that blue D-SUB (VGA) connectors are analogue and you cannot activate digital mode through analog VGA cable.
3) Use appropriate cable to connect monitor to PC. Example: Your PC has HDMI output. Use HDMi-to-DVI cable. Your monitor input is DVI and common DVI-DVI cable is not suitable in case you have PC with the HDMI. Note that DVI-to-DVI, DisplayPort-to-DVI etc. cables are available. You must buy right one.
Be aware that "Auto" button is inactive in digital mode of monitor.
This problem is often the result of a loose video cable connection on the computer or an incorrect video signal selection. Most monitors use a cable with "VGA" connector on the end that mates to the computer video port. Other modern computers make use of an HDMI (like the ones used to connect a TV to a BluRay Disk player) or DVI connector instead - either way if it is loose you will get the same "No Signal" message on screen. Make sure these connectors are making good contact with the port on the computer by seating them fully (or better yet - remove and reinsert). In the case of the VGA connector, most have two screws to hold them in the port - you should make sure both are threaded all the way in. You do not need to crank them down, finger-tight is more than enough.
Many newer - flat screen types in particular - do not have the video cable permanently attached. Instead, they use the same cord and connector arrangement found on the computer. It is possible that the connector has become loosened on the monitor end - especially if the monitor is moved / adjusted frequently. You should check the connections at the rear of the monitor just as you checked at the computer, too.
When satisfied that the connections at the computer and monitor are good, check the monitor again. If the message is still present, the monitor may be able to select between an analog input and a digital input via a menu item accessible from the monitor. Check your monitor manual for instructions to change inputs if unsure. If you are using the "standard VGA cable" (the one with the two screws) you should select the analog input. If you're using an HDMI cable, you should select the digital input. If you're using an DVI connector the input may be either analog or digital. When making a change, wait 5 to 10 seconds between toggling between the analog / digital selections to allow the monitor to sync the signal for proper display.
If you're still unable to display the desktop, it is possible that that someone has changed the BIOS options to select a different video card (if more than one is installed) or that the cable is defective.
VGA no signal means "no signal" from the computer on the VGA (blue plug) cable... ...if the computer works check the cord for loose connection or get a new cord...if the computer is hooked to the digital cable (DVI/white plug)...set the signal source on the monitor to digital...
Symptom : No Image on the screen. I cannot turn on the monitor.
Checklist 1 : Is the power connected properly ?
