    Thank you maam or sir ( sorry I don't recognize your name so I can't recognize gender ) for letting us know. Do you mind me asking where you are from? Just wanting to know how to pronounce your name and have an idea of where you are from. No need to answer if you don't want to.

    Is the computer itself turned on? Are there power indications on the desktop, i.e. power indicators usually a green light or hard drive indicators ( usually a flashing red light as the computer boots up ). So far the only thing that seems to be turned on is the Monitor which is displaying the No-signal display. No-signal indicates the computer is not turned on or is defective or the cable between the computer and monitor is not fully connected.

Problem with the monitor


hi,

first of all,try to connect the cable to other device(laptop) to see if is working,because if you receive the message"No signal" then the monitor is working but the cable/signal did not cross to the monitor,then is working with other device then try again or check if you can connect the monitor with different port if you monitor has one vga/dvi or hdmi.

Tip

Monitor self test


to make sure that the monitor is working fine, just unplug it from the computer. make sure that monitor is plugged in a known good wall outlet and turned on. there should be self test feature check on it that scolls around the monitor screen. for no dell branded monitor there should be a message like No signal.

When my computer says check signal cable what does it mean?


Your monitor is telling you that it thinks it is not receiving a video signal from the computer. You need to verify which of three components is not working, the computer, the cable, or the monitor.

The first thing to do, obviously, is to check that the cable connecting the computer to monitor is good. You will need some extra components to do the checking. I'm going to assume that the cable is detachable at both ends.
First you can try replacing the cable with different one. If the replacement cable works, then it's the cable.
Secondly, you can try different monitor. If you connect this in place of the first monitor, and it works, it's a faulty monitor (needs repairing or replacing).
Third try a different computer with the original cable and monitor, if it all works it looks like the video on your PC has malfunctioned. (This might also be your conclusion if a system comprising a different cable and monitor fails to work with the original PC)
You might just be able to verify the cable by testing the connectivity of all the wires in the cable with a meter, if you knew the pin out of the cable at both ends.
If you find out the computer is getting a signal out, there could be many causes for that, each having its own solution (or not as the case may be)

I have a gateway 506gr the monitor says self test, check your pc and signal cable monitor is working. nothing responds whats up?


Try turning the monitor after the pc is on. I have one monitor that shows that message if it is turned on before the pc is. If that doesn't work then there's 2 things i can think of. One is the cable is damaged, big issue if is integrated, and second the video card. Even if it is integrated you can get a replacement one and disable the first one if it gives you problems.

CPU ON WITH NO SIGNAL TO MONITOR


Make sure your monitor has power and that the VGA cord or USB cord is properly connected. If your monitor has power (power light is on), disconnect the VGA or USB cord from it, but leave the power on. This will tell you if the monitor is working as it shold display a message like self check or no signal detected and then proceed to display a screen saver. If not then I'd suspect your monitor. If the monitor is ok, then try a different cable between your computer and the monitor. If that fails, then your video card may be defective.

I show on monitor "no signal" Check Signal Cable


Check that the "data" cable between your computer and your monitor is tightly connected at each end.

Connect the VGA-output port from a laptop computer to the monitor, to see if the monitor works when connected to a different computer.

Connect a different monitor to the VGA-output port on your computer, to see if that monitor works.

Failing all the above, the video-card on your computer is the problem, and needs to be replaced.

What does this mean?


It means that the monitor is not receiving a signal from the video card of the computer.

Possible failures are as follows:

1. The monitor input cable is no longer connecteds to the video casd.
2. The computer is not powering on
3. The video card has failed
4. The input Select option of the LCD is set wrong

Computer not booting up


Could be one of two things:

1. Signal cable from monitor isn't hooked up. (either monitor end or computer case end)

2. Video card in the computer is damaged and not putting out signal. This is unlikely though as usually this will trip the motherboard into beeping when you turn the computer is turned on.
