Are you using the VGA cord or the DVI? If using the VGA switch to DVI, maybe there is a short with the VGA plug inside the monitor. a VGA to DVI adapter on the back of pc should do the trick unless your computer has a DVI connection as well..

DVI ==> Digital Video Input
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,
and your PC's video-card has both DVI and VGA outputs,
then buy a DVI-to-DVI cable, and use it, for a better picture.
If your monitor has both DVI and VGA inputs,
and your PC's video-card only has VGA output,
then use a VGA-to-VGA cable.
Or, purchase a video-card with DVI output,

LCD Monitors having multiple inputs have option and option to select and switch between the displays from analog (VGA) or Digital (DVI) inputs. Go to the LCD menu and select input source (DVI)

1) No. The switch color should have been Green

2) No Signal on the monitor, indicates the monitor is not receiving a Video Signal from the computer.

A) Could be due to a faulty monitor cable.
Monitor cable is used on a working computer for a test,
Or,
working computer's monitor cable is used on the Advent for a test.

B) Could be due to the graphics 'engine' on the motherboard, or on the graphics card is bad.

[Graphics 'engine'.
GPU
Graphics Processing Unit.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU ]

If the computer is using Integrated Graphics, the GPU is on the motherboard.

(Integrated Graphics is also referred to as OnBoard Graphics. Meaning On the motherBoard)

You will know if it's Integrated Graphics, because the monitor cable will be plugged into the VGA connector, on the motherboard

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

Since you indicate an adapter was included, to adapt to a different port (Connector), it could be a VGA to DVI adapter, or a DVI to VGA adapter.

Your monitor may just have a VGA connector on the monitor cable.
Hence you would use a female VGA to Male DVI adapter.

Your monitor may be an LCD flat screen monitor, and has a DVI connector on the monitor cable.
Hence you would use a female DVI to Male VGA adapter.

DVI
Digital Visual Interface

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

VGA monitors are Analog.
LCD monitors are Digital.

A computer puts out a digital signal.

If a VGA monitor is used, the computer has to alter the Digital signal to an Analog one.
This slows down the video signal.

If your monitor (In any case. Not just this one), is an LCD flat screen monitor, it is best to use a DVI monitor cable, and plug into a DVI port on the computer, if available.

If your monitor is a VGA (CRT. Cathode Ray Tube), monitor, and you have a DVI connection on your computer, using the adapter will do you no good.

The adapter just uses the contact pins for VGA, that are present in that DVI adapter, and hence the DVI connection on the computer.

You're still just getting an Analog VGA signal.

Example of a female VGA to male DVI adapter,

http://www.directron.com/dvi.html

If the Integrated Graphics are suspected to be bad, a graphics card is used in the appropriate expansion slot, for a test.

If the graphics work then, the graphics card is left in service.

After I test the monitor cable my next procedure is to suspect the Power On switch, or the Power Supply, and go to the graphics next.

The reasoning is that Power Supply failure, is the number one cause of computer failure.
The next is the Power On switch, then Electrolytic Capacitors used on the motherboard.

(Specifically, any Electrolytic Capacitors used in the motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit)

If the Power On switch is bypassed, the diagnosis will reveal if the problem is the switch, or Power Supply.

Bypass the Power On switch, and the Power Supply comes on?
Problem is the Power On switch.

[One Power On switch I have found to fit a lot of computers. The Power On switch goes into the plastic Power On button,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html ]

Bypass the Power On switch, and the Power Supply does Not come on?
The problem is the Power Supply.

The Power On switch is bypassed using a jumper wire, from the green Soft Power On wire, to ANY black Ground wire. The contact made is a brief momentary one.

The jumper wire is used at the back, of the 20, or 24-pin ATX main power cable connector.

Please check whether you are using a DVI (Digital Visual Interface) cable or VGA (Video Graphics Array) cable to the monitor.The monitor will adjust automatically to the requirements of the connected cable.From the question I think you had connected a DVI cable to the monitor.Make sure that there is no loose contact between the ports and the cable.Also make sure that the proper settings on the monitor are done for the DVI cable configuration.

Monitor says No signal digital


Is ether the monitor or video card uses both DVI or VGA port. There may be a switch on the graphic card that changes it from DVI to VGA, often outside the card.

Also is the computer monitor set to the right setting if it can use both VGA and DVI, if using DVI (of any type) it need to switch to digital, and if using VGA it need to be set to analog. This may be a physical switch or using the settings button. (see manual how to change them)


PS: VGA port is a blue D shaped port with 15 pin holes, and DVI is a white rectangle port with one port being a line.

Dvi to vga


You will not benefit from the DVI input unless you have DVI output on your computer. The great advantage of DVI is that the picture is transferred in digital form all the way from your computer to the individual pixels on the monitor. If you only have VGA output on your computer then you will never get a better picture than by using a good quality VGA cable to link that to the VGA input on your monitor.

The DVI plug is designed to carry both digital and analogue (VGA) signals on the various pins, so "adaptors" exist to allow a VGA monitor to attach to a DVI output on a computer. Monitors may also support VGA input from their corresponding DVI input sockets, but the picture quality will never be better than by using a good VGA cable because it is still not using the digital capability of the DVI interface. What's more, because you may need more adaptors and thinner conductors in the cable, you will probably achieve a marginally poorer picture than with VGA to VGA.

When you next buy a PC or a new video card, get one with DVI to take advantage of your new monitor. In the meantime, your best bet is a quality VGA to VGA link.

Sorry that's not what you were wanting to hear, but I hope it will help you avoid further frustration.
