This occurs due to the Monitor display cable not connected properly. Please double check the cable from Monitor to the CPU(the main box).
You could also try removing and inserting the cable again.
Please be careful and don't apply excessive pressure as you might break the monitor cable "pins" if inserted wrongly.
This should fix your problem. (Assuming both the CPU and monitor are switched on.)

The monitor turns on but says "no signal"

Usually this means either your cable isn't connecting properly to your computer or there is a compatibility problem between the monitor and the computer. Are you getting the "no signal" message AFTER you have connected the machine to a working/ turned on computer? Because the monitor will ALWAYS say "No signal" if it isn't hooked up to anything. Also, you will want to verify that none of your pins (from the end of the cable) is missing, and that your cable is firmly seated into the port on your computer. Other than those things, you really need to say a lot more than just, "The monitor turns on but says 'no signal'" for anyone to be able to assist you.

MONITOR Dell older model says no signal

The first thing to check is the cable between the tower and the monitor. If you have done this, then hold the power button until the computer shuts off...wait 5 seconds and then turn it back on. If these two things do not work, then it is likely that the integrated video part of the mother board has failed.

No clicking sound from the signal lights on my 09 equinox

So what is the problem? Are your signal lights working?

The "click sound" that could be heard in grandpa's old car came from the bi-metal flasher "can" that was used to turn the indicator lamps on and off. The Chevrolet brand vehicle built in 2009 and named "Equinox" did not use the old-school "can" to control the turn signals. It uses one of those new-fangled things called a computer, which uses solid-state drivers to operate the turn signal bulbs. Therefore the "clicking" that was produced by the bi-metal element inside the can is no longer heard.

However, for those that forget and leave their turn signals on (because they no longer have the "click" to make them pay attention to the turn signal indicators screaming at them from the instument cluster area), there is a message that displays on the Driver's Information Center (another one of them new-fangled computer thingys) that tells the driver that the turn signal has been left on. If the driver is still not paying attention (you know, busy texting, or what-not..), Then the chime module will start sounding off with a "dinging" sound.

For drivers that really get into their phone conversations, texting, music turned up to 10,000 decibles, or simply just gawking at all the ugly cars that they are flying past at mach speed, the vehicle manufacturer has made the volume level of the dingy thing configureable so it can scream at the driver a little louder.

This subject is covered in the 2009 Chevrolet Equinox Owners Manual.
If yours is like the ones most people have, The cobwebs come off pretty easilly with just a dry towel. Look under "turn signals" as well as "Driver's Information Center".

OR...If you want to get completly away from grandpa's old beater, you can go ahead and allow the turnips to grow from the cover of that old-fashioned book thing that is occupying space in your glove box and use your fancy computer thing-a-ma-jig to download a PDF version by using that mousey....whatchamacallit, to click the link below....or the one above! Wow! now THAT is rad!

My dell 470 wont boot up every thing seems to be working but when i turn on i get a blank screen and no signal displayed Edward

This means that your monitor is not receiving a signal from your graphics card.
Here are the things that you can try:
-Disconnect and reconnect your monitor from your computer.
-Try using a different cable to connect your monitor to your computer.
-Try connecting your monitor to another computer, if it works there it means that there's a problem with your graphics card and it may require a replacement. If your monitor is still saying no signal even if it has been connected to another computer that works fine then the problem is with the monitor.

If the computer is turning on but the monitor is not getting a signal it sounds like your video card is bad. Fairly easy and inexpensive fix. If you could supply the make and model of your computer I could let you know the card you need and supply installation instructions.
