Message on monitor screen= "No Connection - Connect Signal Cable"

After turning off the computer and cleaning out the dust in the CPU, we reconnected everything and now the monitor is giving us the above message. We cannot find our manual. What do we need to do to get the monitor up and running again? We would like to use it in digital mode. Thanks.

This message is pretty standard and translates into: "I'm fine but your cable or video card isn't."

You may have dislodged the video card while cleaning or possibly bent one of the fine pins of the video connector.

Check the seating of the video card, pulling it up slightly and pushing fimly back into the slot (sometimes the contacts aren't contacting) and then the video output connector.
Pull the latter and examine it carefully for bent pins, not missing ones since not all pin positions are used and those may be empty.

Whats the problem with no picture on the monitor but the cpu is working


Can you observe any LED lights on the monitor panel when you try to turn it on. If no then check your power cables. If you can see the LED lights but screen does not show try to unplug the VGA/HDMI cable and clean it by blowing air through the plug and then reconnect it. Also try to turn on the monitor without connecting it to the monitor as this will verify if the monitor is OK because if it is it should display a message to check the input signal or no input signal is detected. If it does and you are still not having a display then the problem is probably in your CPU and more specifically in the VGA card.

Monitor keeps shuting down


what do you mean by "computer starts"????? plz write full detail. first remove your monitor cable from your cpu cabinet. if you are able to see "no signal" message on screen then your monitor is working. if you aren't seeing anything on your screen then there is some problem with your monitor. there also may be problem with your VGA connection (VGA or D-Sub wire). remove and reconnect this wire from both end. first reconnect it from your monitor and then from your video card. if it dosen't fix then you have to check that all led's are glowing on your cpu cabinet or not. if only power led is glowing and other led's always remains off, then there may be problem with your video card or ram or hdd. first open your pc case, then if you have video card, then remove it and put it again. reconnect your hdd sata wire. remove your ram and place it again. if now also not showing anything on your screen, then there is problem with your motherboard bios.

Screen will not stay on, getting message no input signal


The message input signal means no signal is being feed to the monitor.
Check the cable use to connect the monitor to the video card.. fix and secure the connection.
If the computer is reading and you know its working, check the video card.
Turn off the CPU disconnect the video card from the motherboard and reconnect.
Try to open your CPU and see if it reacts with your monitor. If nothing happens replace your video card

Whenever i turn on my pc it says no input signal.i dont know whats wrong with it.is it the motherboard or the hard drive?


When you power up the cpu check your smps is working?
Then check num lock key on key bord if it is on and off when you press numlock then your cpu gives dispaly to monitor ok.
but if it not constant on or off no change when you press num lock key then you have to open cpu cabinet.
Refix RAM memory .
Clean dust from motherbord chipset.
Pull out cmos cell for 15 minutes so bios settings are reset to defaults.
then check.
refix all connection to mothebord like ATX power supply from smps.

Monitor signal cable troubleshooting


hi, there is some loose contact in the connection. Take out the cable end from the VGA socket and check the pins inside the socket for any bend inside the socket. Reconnect it, tight the connector with the socket bolts. If not solved, try for any loose solder or wire breake.
Thank you
