If you have an onboard video card that you are replacing you have to disable it in your device manager before you install your new video card or there will be an IRQ conflict rusulting in no video from new card. Hope this helps you out.....

I have a Magnavox 15' HDTV monitor and it won't turn on, when I push the on switch on it turns green and a split second later it turns yellow. whats wrong?


This is typical when there is no communication with video card. Test on another PC. Re-seat video card on PC. Use VGA cable instead of HDMI or DVI. Make sure monitor is correct mode. Again VGA, DVI, or HDMI, depending on cable used.

Monitor is getting power but no sign of life. Even the On/Off button has no illumination.


Most cases of a monitor doing that would have something to do with the cables and ports. Ensure that your video card is mounted properly (don't do this while your computer is on), and check the plug in the back to make sure it's firmly attached. If all of this is alright, check the input ports on the back of your monitor, you may have a plug in the wrong slot or not in at all. Another attempt at solving the problem can be made by hooking the monitor up to a laptop or another computer to see if it turns on, if it does, there's something wrong with the computer itself. Anything wrong with the computer can include: An improperly mounted video card, a video card not receiving power (some cards require extra power, if you have an older card, don't worry about this), or your motherboard might have a physical issue (most likely not the case.)

Hi, I have tried 2 monitors with my HP Pavillion and keep getting NO SIGNAL INPUT. Any ideas what might be wrong?


The video card might be no good on your machine. If the video card is not integrated into the motherboard try removing and re-inserting it, then try to to see if you get a signal.

If the video card is integrated into the motherboard then you will need to purchase (or borrow) a video card, installing it into your computer plugging a monitor to that and try to see if you can get the power to turn on.

Of course first you should make sure that the computer is actually turning on before you spend money on another video card.

Hope this helps

When I turn on my gateway computer my monitor will turn on but will says "no signal RGB". is it my motherboard thats going bad?


If the monitor comes on with the Gateway logo and follows with no signal, the monitor is probably okay. If the computer seems to run with no display then I would suspect the video graphics card, but there are a lot of variables that I do not know. I suggest a computer repair store to check your system with an estimate.

I attach my monitor and turn the machine on and I get a black screen. When I pull the monitor cable out of from the monitor connection on the motherboard I get a color display on the monitor. What is...


When you disconnect the monitor cable, the display you see is from the monitor itself. It's telling you that the monitor has power and is working, but that you don't have the cable connected to your computer. So the trouble is in your computer, which isn't sending anything to the monitor.

Your computer may not be starting up when you turn on the power. This is pretty common, and may be due to a bad power supply or system board. Or something may be wrong on one of the devices connected to the motherboard (one of the drives or a card plugged in to an expansion slot). You'll need to figure out what is keeping the computer from starting. The easiest way is to unplug all devices from the motherboard except for the power supply and try starting the computer. If the computer starts up you'll know that one of those parts you disconnected is at fault.

Another possibility is that the video card (integrated video on the motherboard in most computers, or a separate card) isn't working. The computer may be starting up and getting in to Windows, but you just never get any video to the monitor. If you are hearing all the sounds of a normal startup (disk drive activity and then finally whatever startup sound your Windows makes), then you need a new video card. If the board has integrated video you just need to install a new plug-in video card of whatever type fits the available slot on the board.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

I turn on my pc all fine screen says no signal help please


Verify that the VGA cable is fully seated and connected. If you can test the computer on another monitor or test another computer on that monitor. Are you getting any video display on the monitor? Does it display the start-up screen then goes away when windows starts? If so start the computer and press F5. A menu will come up and select to start computer in VGA mode. This should bring up windows so you can change the screen resoloution to something the monitor can handle. If the computer does not display anything and the monitor is testing good then the on-board video or video card might be faulty. You could change the video card if it has one or add one to the system if it has on-board video. You could also try re-setting the BIOS jumper to clear the cmos or pull out the watch battery for 20 seconds. Another thing to try is to disconnect all hardware...cd-rom, hard drive, floppy drive, and memory dimms and see if it boots up with display. If that works the you will need to re-install each piece of hardware one at a time and re-boot until the problem happens again. Once it does that is your problem device. You could also try swapping out the power supply and see if that is the cause of the problem.

Monitor working properly but it sounds continously,very noisy


hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? Friend try this solutions:
Problem: Your Monitor Doesn't Display—The System Unit Issues a Series of Beeps Your PC uses beeps to communicate with you when something is wrong with the video setup. Check the settings on your video card to make sure that they're correct for your system. Also check any switches on the motherboard to make sure that they're set up correctly for your type of video card. (You should consult your system's instruction manual for details on this procedure.) Check to make sure that your video card is seated properly in its slot; you may even want to try inserting the card in another slot. If none of these suggestions works, try a new video card, or have your system examined by a professional.
In a pre-Windows 98, system, if you have two video cards installed at the same time, they can sometimes interfere with each other and cause neither to work properly. Try removing one of the cards; if this results in the remaining card working, you need to reconfigure one or both of the cards to better work together. (With Windows 98 and later you can install two video cards to run multiple monitors simultaneously.)

Problem: Your CRT Monitor Doesn't Display—It Makes a High-Pitched Whine This whine indicates that your CRT-type monitor, for some reason, is operating at the wrong frequency. Turn it off immediately—this problem could seriously damage your monitor! Now check the settings on your video card. Chances are that it's set to a higher resolution than your monitor is capable of displaying. If this isn't the problem, your video card itself could be defective. If your video card is okay, your monitor might be defective.
Problem: Your CRT Monitor Pops and Crackles and Starts to Smell Like the rest of a computer system, monitors can get dusty. When dust builds up inside the monitor, it can generate static charges.
It's also possible that the power supply inside the monitor has become defective. If the monitor demonstrates these symptoms, turn it off immediately and take it to a repair center. The technicians can either clean your monitor or replace the power supply if necessary
You may visit your monitor services center if the problems stills occur after performing the solutions mentioned. hope i helped you friend good luck

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.
