Hi nobumsteers,

This is most often caused by your VGA cable becoming detached from either the back of your computer or it's connection to the back of the monitor. First, check by unplugging both connections and re-attaching them firmly back into both ends.

If it still displays the no input signal error, then most likely your computer's video card is not transmitting signal to the monitor. So we need to make sure that the video card is working.

If your blue connection in the back of the computer is located near all of the rest of the cables (very close proximity, less than 1 inch apart) then you are using an 'on-board' video card. If you purchase a new video card and place it in one of your lower, available PCI or PCI-Express card slots in your computer and connect your VGA cable to that, you should have video again. But this would be a solution to a defective on-board video card, which if it is still under a warranty should be repaired by your Manufacturer.

Hope that helps.

SOURCE: DVI no input signal......VGA input active.

Are you running an additional Video card? Or are you using the built in one.
You might try cleaning the connector / plugs with acetone from finger polish remover or de=natured alcohol.
Never jam anything on a computer.
If its an add on card, remove it and reboot. Shut down and reinstall card and reboot.
keep me posted please,

Model dx4300. Why does monitor indicate no signal input?


This machine has both VGA and HDMI outputs. Depending upon your monitor, you have one of the two cabled up to it. Some monitors will auto-detect which input is active, but others do not. Check the monitor and ensure that if is has dual inputs (VGA/DVI) (VGA/HDMI), that you have the correct input source selected. This is usually done from the buttons on the monitor itself.

No signal when i used vga monitor connector to pc, no problem in dvi


Michael,
I have both ASUS and LG monitors with multiple input choices. On both, when the monitor is turned on, it remembers the last input source. Both monitors (and presumably yours, as well) have an INPUT selection in their SETUP MENU.
So, I'm suggesting you search your monitor for an INPUT selection option, then choose "VGA" rather than DVI / HDMI / AV / COMPONENT / CABLE / ANTENNA, etc.
Hope this helps.

How do I fix the error no vga input signal no dvi input signal monitor going to sleep


Check if you VGA is properly settled in the PCI slot. Try to take it out, clean the slot for dust.
If that doesn't help, it is well possible that you VGA is not working any more.

HP w2207 no vga input signal, no dvi input signal monitor goes to sleep


There is no signal coming from your PC.
excuse some of the solutions as sounding dumb, but we have to explore all possibilities.

Check the power cable going into the computer
Check the power input disconnect switch on the back of the power supply and make sure it is on
If the pc is plugged into a power bar, make sure it is turned on and the breaker isn't tripped
press power on the PC and make sure the lights are coming on.

now for the solutions that may actually help.

disconnect the power from the PC
if the video is on a card, remove and re-seat the video card
hook the power back up, connect the monitor and try again.

the CMOS on the computer may need to be reset.
I hate totally clearing the CMOS, so what I usually do is remove 1 stick of ram and power up. If the system is alive again, power down, put the RAM back in and power back up.
If that doesn't work, turn the system off, put the CMOS jumper to the CLEAR position for 15 seconds, put it back to the Normal position and then power back up.

Basically, if the monitor works on your friends system but not on yours, the the problem is your system, not the monitor (assuming it isn't working fine til it gets into windows...if that's the problem, you have a driver or configuration problem)

No input signal


Make sure the connects of the vga cable is in the computer good and into the monitor good. If you still have a problem look inside at the pins or prongs on the end that plugs into the computer. Make sure none of them are bent. It will look like some are missing, but that is normal.

If they are not bent and you have both ends of the cable secured tightly, then your VGA Video Card might be bad. You can try the monitor on another computer and if it comes up ok then for sure the video card is bad on the original computer. If you get a no input signal when you put the monitor on another computer then it's possible the monitor is bad, in that case try another monitor on your original computer.

I have a HP m7570n. How do I use a flat screen tv as a monitor


This depends on the TV's available inputs. The Pavilion m7570n has only a VGA output in the standard configuration.

Thus if the TV has a VGA port, turn off the computer and the TV. Then connect a standard VGA (RGB or D-sub 15-pin) m/m cable between the computer and the TV. To use the TV speakers, connect a 3.5 mm audio patch cable between the computers Line-out (green speaker port) to the VGA audio in. Turn on the TV and set the input to VGA (with the Source or Input button on the remote or the TV). Then turn on the computer. Windows XP should find the correct resolution to work with the TV. (If you turn on the TV after turning on the computer, you may get an unsupported signal. Press Ctrl-Alt-Del twice to restart the computer.) If it doesn't work, you may need to connect a different monitor and set the computer to a low resolution before connecting the TV and the computer.

If the TV only has composite or component video inputs, you will need a VGA to video converter (http://www.svideo.com/pctocomponent.html for example). A VGA to component cable will not work; those are for projectors that read an RGB input. TVs interpret YPbPr.

If you have added a video graphics card, you may have an HDMI and/or DVI port(s) on the card. In that case, check the specs of the TV. Some TVs will support HDMI or DVI-HDMI inputs from a computer. Others will not (since computer video signals are not the same as the signal from a set-top box). If you use a DVI-HDMI connector, make sure to use the HDMI port labeled for DVI and connect the audio cable as with the VGA connection. If you use an HDMI connection, you may need to set the sound properties to that of the HDMI port. (Find the control panel item for sound (under Hardware) and then select Manage Audio Devices. Set the Playback properties. If it doesn't work, use an audio patch cable.) Some TVs have RCA audio inputs for the HDMI-DVI connector. In that case, you will need a female 3.5 mm to RCA M/M adapter (if you use a 3.5 mm patch cable). There is a similar device if you want to use an RCA audio cable. You may need to enable the video ports on the graphics card before swapping monitors.

Some video cards have a TV out. In that case, connect the appropriate connector (should come with the video card). Then connect to the component, composite or S-video input on the TV.

Again turn off the TV and the computer before making any connections.

You will probably need to provide your own cables for must of these connection options.

I hope this helps.

My dell inspiron 530 shows a block with red, white, green, and read, can't get to the my programs????


That "red white green and blue" block is a color pattern tester. that means the monitor is on, but is not receiving a signal, so its running tests. If your monitor has Digital input and VGA input, you may just need to switch inputs. Look for 1 or VGA if youre using the blue hook up. look for 2 or digital or dvi if youre using the larger white hook up. Some monitors also have 'auto detect'. If you are in "auto detect' bbut the color box is still there, then your monitor is not receiving video signal from the computer. It could indicate a bad cable or no signal being sent by the machine. If you try another monitor, you can see if the machine is working. I would try a monitor setting for VGA-1 first, since thats most common.
