No signal message on your LCD monitor screen means that your monitor is not receiving any signal from your PC graphic card. This problem "no signal" have nothing to do with the drivers installations. Have you check whether your graphic card is faulty or your cable connection properly connected/secured? ie VGA (D-sub). As far as I know there are no parallel connectors for PC Monitor connectors only, VGA(D-sub), DVI or HDMI cable interface.

Try to connect your monitor to another PC, just to test whether the LCD monitor is functional.

Hope it helps.

    It depend whether your Graphic card is onboard or using a AGP/PCI Express slot. If your motherboard does not have any AGP/PCI Express Slot you can use the a PCI Graphic card to plug into the PCI slot

    If your monitor works, then most probably your graphic is faulty.

Black screen during startup Acer Aspire L310


Has your monitor worked for it in the past? This may be a stupid question, have you also tried to use your monitor with another computer?

It's possible your graphics controller is out, have you checked the cables insides to see if any wires are bent? Or have you tried to use another cable for the monitor to tower connection?

If you have done all of the above and the monitor works with another computer, it's possible your GPU is out :(

If your GPU is out, you can buy a new one in it's place and it will plug into a PCI slot, chances are your graphics card is integrated.

Do you get any beep codes on the computer? Another odd chance could be the computer itself is actually dead, even if a computer is dead a motherboard can still be active since electricity can still flow through it.

I hope this helps. x: I hope your problem is resolved sooner than later.

Monitor will not boot up is reading no input signal


So either the computer isn't generating a video signal, the cable isn't carrying the signal to the monitor, or else the monitor isn't capable of receiving a video signal.To test this, first try a video cable that you know is good, in case your cable is bad, If it works with the other cable, the problem was your original video cable. If it still doesn't work, put your original cable back, and hook another computer up to the monitor. If the monitor makes the same message, the problem is with the monitor. If the other computer works when connected to this monitor, your problem was that the original computer isn't booting (which could be due to several reasons I will list below), or the video adapter is broken.Possible reasons for the computer not booting: bad power supply, bad power button, bad hard drive, bad memory, bad motherboard component. If you determine that it isn't booting, unplug everything except the keyboard mouse monitor and power cord, to see if that makes a difference. If it boots after that, something you unplugged was causing the problem, plug them each back in one by one, rebooting in between, and when it stops booting properly, the last thing you plugged in is causing the problem.

I have a Acer X203H Monitor. Everything is connected I've checked a million times. When my computer turns on it displays fine on the monitor, but the first or sometimes second time the computer goes to...


I would try this monitor with another PC first to verify that it is not PC problem.
Most common failures in the monitors are due to bad caps in the power supply/inverter board, we want to find out first if it is the monitor or the PC problem.
See examples of failed ACER due to bad caps here:

GRAY BOX SAYS NO SIGNAL AND IT GOES ON AND OFF


Hello,

The monitor is not getting a video signal from the computer (if it is connected to a computer)


Try the following steps first:

1 Turn off power and disconnect power cables from the computer
2 Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
3 Reconnect power cables and try to turn it on.

If everything remains same, the next step will be to re-seat memory modules.

Screen comes on says Acer then No Signal, and goes out. if shut power off and then back on get same result.


This means the monitor believes it's not connected to the computer. Verify the cables first of all. Then try booting in safe mode (F8 key at PC startup) in order to verify that the PC is sending data to the proper video port (you might have a dual VGA / Digital output, for example, and the monitor might be connected to the wrong PC port). Quite often, a "bad signal" will be the same of "no signal"; and you can have a bad signal if the monitor resolution on the PC is set too high. This could happen if you installed a high-resolution capable monitor, and then replaced it with a not-completely-plug-and-play, lower resolution one. The PC would keep sending hi-res signals to a monitor which can neither interpret them, nor tell the PC "please slow down". To check this last possibility, reboot your computer while the monitor is ON. When PCs reboot, they usually drop back to standard VGA signaling, which all monitors understand. If the monitor abruptly comes to life and displays a boot screen, then goes No Signal again after several seconds, you've got a resolution issue; get in Safe Mode with F8 key at boot, and modify the screen properties (right-mouse button on the desktop, then Properties).

If everything else fails, try also connecting the monitor to another PC or laptop, to see if it works there.

Monitor no signal


Your monitor cable is not properly connected to your computer, make sure you have it connected to the correct output on the back of your computer. If it is connected, make sure it is connected securely, not loose and half-cocked at the connector. If that doesn't work, try another cable.
