Hey!

If you get that message on your screen. It is possible that there is no communication from the tower to the monitor.

Please make sure that the cable that is connected from the monitor to back of the tower is properly connected.

Also check if the lights on the tower are on and try to check if they're the ones that you normally see when you use your computer. It could also be possible that the computer is encountering a problem.

Hope this helps! :D

Power went off no monitor is giving check cable error


If you're seeing a "Check Cable" message on the monitor - it's working. If this message appears, it means the monitor isn't receiving a signal from the computer. Cable could be loose, or video circuit has failed.

I have a e machines desktop that will not boot up. I turn it on and the monitor says no signal. I think it might be stuck in hibernation mode. The fans on the tower start but thats about it. If some one...


No Signal means you Display or Monitor is not getting signal from Video Card.
In this case:
1. Check if all the cable are properly plugged in. Check on both monitor and computer back. 2. Check if cable is not broken. 3. Try unplugging cables and plug them back. 4. Try some other monitor or cable. 5. If cables are fine than problem could be with your video card.
As you are getting No Signal that mean your monitor is working fine. Problem is either with cable or video card.

Ok when i turn on my aoc monitor colors like blue green red white pop up i can never use my desktop


I would suggest that you try another monitor. If the monitor continues to light up with these colors and you do not see your computer desktop, then I would tend to think that your computer may have a problem with the video card or driver. Do you get a message on your montor with words like "no connection" or "No signal". If so, this means that the monitor is getting no video signal from you desktop. Try disconnecting your monitor plug and removing power from the monitor in an attempt to reset the monitor. Try also to turn off and unplug your computer. Leave the computer unplugged for about 10 minutes and start it up again. This may reset your computer. If you monitor video cable will disconnect from the monitor, you may want to get a new cable. These cable do go bad sometimes and are available and inexpensive on Ebay.com

Try these ideas and let me know how you do.

Thank You,

I have a samsung 17'' lcd monitor.when i power on my monitor without data cable i got a message on screen CHECK SIGNAL CABLE.when i connect data cable my lcd is going to power off.please help?


The message says that the monitor doesn't receives signal - which is normal. Since the problem appears only after you plug in the cable in means that the problem is located there - something is wrong with your pc, most likely the video card has died.

When i turn my monitor on it goes on and shows the acer logo then says no signal and just goes off and this just happened one day i have never had any other problems with it before


If you monitor shows no signal that means it is not connected to the computer properly and not getting any video signals from the computer. You need to check the vga cable properly Try removing the cable from both ends and and reseat the cable. Try another VGA cable. If you are using a Graphic card make sure the card is connected properly
Please feel free to get back for any further assistance.

Samsung color monitor


This problem may arise from monitor as well as from cpu.
First of all check it by unplugging the VGA monitor cable.
This will display the "Check Signal Cable" depending on the model of the monitor. But a message will appear rolling on the screen, if it is not a very old monitor.
If the message is appearing OK and green light is continuously on, that means ur monitor is working fine.
The problem may be with VGA cable or with the booting of CPU and probably the RAM. Recommended solution is to reconnect the RAM and then try, if u think u can do. Otherwise call a hardware engineer.
If there is no message and still the light is turning green and yellow. That means the problem is definintely in the monitor.

Thankyou,
Your well wisher
