What kind of laptop and how old is it? Some laptops will shut the monitor off if the system gets overheated.

    Do you have good ventilation under the laptop while it is running? My Compaq presario R4025US will just shut off if the ventilation isn't good and it gets too hot, where my Dell Insperion 1100 shuts the monitor down. I would say to watch the heat, maybe watch the cpu usage and make sure its not staying at 100% Laptops hate running at 100% and do wierd things. Of course if it is running at 100% while you are doing nothing but surfing the web/ checking email etc you may have malware or a virus. make sure your windows is up to date and your antivirus software as well.

Why does my asus monitor always read "no signal".


nah that happens with me sometimes..
have you connect the cable properly?
if that still can't make it works, first turn on your PC and monitor..
then plug off the cable that power them, so that your computer and monitor will suddenly off..
plug it on again, then your monitor will work again..
that works on mine cause my CPU is too old and had a power problem..

Computer boots fine but the monitor is blank


if the monitor works fine on your laptop, the problem definitely is at the computer, possibly with the video card (if it is using one). it could have loose connection, or parts might have damages. it seems the problem is intermittent so electronic component of the video card could have parts partially damages or leaky components.
if your still using the motherboards built in video out put, try installing a new video card.

LG L194WT Monitor suddenly stop working


it is probably indicative of a switched mode powersupply trying to start then seeing a short and then trying to start again...this will cycle continuously until fault is rectified..any component that can drain the powersupply is the culprit...you need some way of detaching the powersupply from the load (monitor) to see if the power supply its self is the cause and also check if there is a loop back (a pulse) for continuous running.
