    Not a damn thang comes up on the monitor. Tried using the vga plug instead. Still nothing shows on the screen. The power button won't even cut the monitor off.

    same issue...plugging the power cord in give me 1 sec of blue on the power button, then a quick blue flash on the power button then off with no display coming on at all...

    For the last few days I have had to unplug the power cord from the monitor to get it to go on. The power button does nothing. Today, I unplug/plug the power cord in and I hear a humm for two seconds, get the Gateway logo on screen for one second then screen goes black.

On these it is usually the power/inverter board that causes this problem.
I repair quite a few fpd series models.

whatever the monitor is connected to is producing a signal that cannot be detected by the monitor. Check the settings on the device. If not post the device info.

I have an AOC monitor and a Lenovo computer. The monitor comes on and says no signal when and the goes off. I have no idea how to change the resolution when I can't get the monitor to stay on.

When the computer is booting up, can you see the POST? No matter what resolution you set the computer to, you should at least see that if your computer is indeed working. If not, make sure your monitor is set to the correct input (DVI or VGA); there may be buttons for you to go into a menu system to select input. If you can see the POST but the monitor says "no signal" when Windows loads, then you'll need to go into SAFE MODE to change the resolution. To select that, press F8 just when Windows is beginning to load.

My HP Pavilion a6642p PC has a monitor but the monitior says no signal input

If it says no signal input, then your computer is not putting out a signal. Possibly a bad video card. Also can be a computer that never really boots up and passes the POST. Unless the POST completes, it won't send a video signal.

Computer not working with Samsung LCD TV

Your PC isn't working, the "CMOS Checksum Error" is a BIOS error. It has nothing to do with the monitor.
You have to let the PC load the default settings and try to boot up, if the defaults doesn't work, you have to reconfigure the options in the SETUP program. To enter Setup press "Del" or "F2" in the POST screen.
