Displayport gives no signal

Q: Displayport gives no signal

Hello no gives Displayport signal So I bought a new monitor the MG Q and tried plugging it in to my PC via displayport the monitor comes with a DP- gt miniDP cable from GTX DP to monitors miniDP and the monitor gives no signal However the computer does recognize the monitor and for example gives the sound alarm for new Displayport gives no signal device attached I can also see the device describes as quot Generic pnp monitor quot and I can see it in the Windows's own control panel for monitor the nvidia control panel pics in the end But it won't allow me to set the monitor to use I suspected that the cable might be broken so I tested it with my UX LN GeForce M laptop which has a miniDP I plugged it to the monitor from laptops miniDP to monitors normal DP the monitor has both DP and mDP and wow image straight away So the cable should be fine I guess But this is somewhat of an different situation as I use different port in the monitor compared to my desktops GTX And I don't have other computers or gadgets that I could use to test the monitors miniDP port Next I plugged in the monitor via HDMI to my desktop and that worked just fine It recognizes the monitor without problems Using my old XL Z monitor with DVI MG Q with DP or the MG Q with HDMI DP at the same time I can see the MG Q being connected twice but it only chooses the HDMI connection and doesn't let me change it to DP even though it shows the connection Here are some pics to explain it better sorry about the fact that it's in my own main language Multiple panel settings window It shows the MG Q on the top under GTX the one not clicked but it won't let me click it to use Sometimes it lets me tick it for a second but instantly ticks the box off The monitor nro is the MG Q via HDMI Surround PhysX window shows that I've connected the monitor via DP but it is greyed out It also won't let me make a surround set with the Xl z mg q DP Changing resolution settings only displays the HDMI connected monitor So I tried uninstalling the Nvidia drivers freshly installing them did not help at all Neither did uninstalling the generic pnp monitor so the computer would reinstall the displays drivers I also freshly installed from Win Pro - gt Win Pro and no difference was intended to do that later on anyway so I thought that I might check if it helps my laptop is running Win and it's DP worked after all I also went to BIOS and checked that iGPU is disabled monitor setting is set to PCIE instead of auto no use I would also test the GTX 's DP on other desktop computer but I can't Anyway I'm somewhat suspecting a software hardware compatibility issue as the monitor is being recognized Doubt the fact that the monitors miniDP or my graphics cards DP port is broken What should I do or try I really want to run the monitor via DP so I can utilize the Hz refresh rate Tech specs PC P Z -V PRO GEN bios v i K GTX DC vbios AS x GB Mhz DDR AX PSU Win Pro Monitor s MG Q XL Z

Hi guys I'm wondering if you can help me,

I just bought a new R9 280 to replace my HD 5830.

I installed it properly and there was no video output to my monitor.

The 5830 is now back in and everything is fine so not sure what's going on.

I've tried using the vga slot instead of HDMI on the R9 280 and there's still no output.

I have a window's 8 laptop. It is about a year old. A few months ago it just suddenly stopped getting a strong wifi signal in my room. The wireless router is in the other room. I assumed that it was just our router, a belkin, and started using an ethernet cable rather then replace it. However, I am visiting my girlfriend and the router is in her room. I took my laptop to the other room and suddenly I only have one bar of connection and nothing will load, like it does at my house. Even sitting right next to the modem get 3 to 4 bar signal strength. I have no idea what to do. I have ran virus checks and malware checks. Nothing turned up. I tried checking to see if my wireless driver needed to be updated but it says that it's up to date and functioning properly, which clearly it isn't. My wireless driver is qualcomm atheros ar9485 802.11. Please help.

Sorry for that long title. Anyway, I was watching some YouTube videos when my wi-fi suddenly stopped worked. With this, I don't mean that I'm not catching signal from my router. I mean that my computer isn't receiving signal from any network. I don't know anyway to fix this, it never happened. I also won't buy a new computer. I got this on Christmas and I think that 7 months isn't that old. Also, the only tutorial I found doesn't applies to my computer (It was for a mac ). I have no idea of how to fix this and if you know, PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!! (If you are curious of how I am posting this, it works with Ethernet connection)
It's an ASUS computer with Windows 8.

I need to extend my signal on my router. It is not going as far as I need. The place where I need it has an Ethernet port in the room but I would need to be able to wire from the piece of equipment that I decide to use there. It would probably best be a router unless an access point can have ports to hook up to additional equipment in the room that I already use. I know it is best to stay with the same brand and my router is NETGEAR DGN3500. Can anyone tell me what they would use? Thanks.

A:What would you recommend to extend my wi fi signal

Best to use either Wireless Access Point or Wireless Router (disable DHCP,VPN, SPI and NAT)

Example #1 using two Wireless Routers (note interwebs = modem)

Example #2 Using Wireless Router with Wireless Client Bridge with Wireless Access Point

There are also PowerLine Wireless (one box connects to our router lan port) uses AC power

These are the options you can use or just use Access Point which has Wireless features. That would connect to your Router as shown in the first example. Port 1 goes into the single port of Access Points to extend your Wireless where the room is not getting enough single to it.

Your model is also ADSL modem and router all you need to buy is either Powerline set or AP (Wireless Access Point) which has wired LAN connection port.

Hi, I've been away camping for a couple of weeks and now that I'm back my desktop computer no longer connects to the internet. As I state in the title, however; the signal strength says it's "very good".

I've tried removing the connection and re-adding it, I've tried moving the wireless USB/removing and potential disturbances, but to no avail.

Any help would be much appreciated!

A:Signal strength: Very good, Access: Limited connectivity

Turn off the Modem
Turn off the Router
Turn off the PC
Turn off all network gear

Do this for 30 seconds.

Then slowly turn on the modem (DSL or Cable)
Then the router
Any switches
Then the PC
Then the rest of your network.

I have a wireless ubee modem. I have had it for a will now and it has worked great up until yesterday. I can't find my wireless signal for my internet. I can hook up the usb port and get the internet just fine, but when I turn to wireless I can't even find my wireless signal name to hook up. I know my laptop is still getting signals because my modem is still finding my neighbors signals. Please help!!!

A:Lost My Internet Signal

Are you using someone else internet service via WiFi? If your now they power cycle the internet modem and your wireless laptop. Power cycle means reboot them or power them down then power them up. Internet modem can be reset but you would need to call your ISP and let them send a signal to hit the box (reset it) or walk you through the steps to do it on your end.

Sounds like a bad connection somewhere. Make sure everything is properly fitted and in the right place. When you replaced the GPU - Is that the only component you unplugged and removed? Try putting in the old card to see if it works. If it does, you could have a bad GPU.

Hi guys, I have a Cisco dual band wireless router that I previously bought to cater for my house network to support older device that runs on wireless G and new devices that runs wireless N.
One set to N only on 5Ghz
Another set to Mix mode on 2.4Ghz

Now that all my older devices has all being replaced with devices that supports wireless N.
If I disable one band, and enable only one, the N-only mode on 5Ghz. Will it help boost the signal or network in any way? If not, is there anything that I can do to fully utilize the dual band capability of the router since that now I do not need to run dual band.

Thanks. (Sorry if my questions sounds stupid, I'm not so good in this tech stuff)

A:Boosting wifi signal

No, your question is valid 100%, it isnt stupid. The only downside about 5GHz, is its range. The 2.4GHz band has been around longer and the 5GHz one is still an emerging technology. I had a dual band router in the past before I switched to an ISP that forces their own router on your, and I noticed no noticeable difference in performance. The 2.4GHz is fine for any average user. I would distribute the more heavily used to devices to the 2.4GHz band since it is more consistant. the 5GHz band can be used for any device that is connection heavy (Skype calling, etc.). Keep in mind though, a lot of computers and devices still dont support the 5GHz band, you will notice this when you search for routers/connections on your devices.

trying to resolve an issue with my homebuilt computer crashing while playing games. I had an HIS Radeon 5770 installed. I removed it and put in a Radeon 6670. When I powered the computer up, I got "no signal" on my display. I removed the new card and put in the old card again. "no signal"

I tried both in another PCIe slot. "no signal"

For the record, I have a Rampage III Formula mobo. There's no onboard video, so I can't try the computer without a video card.

A:No monitor signal

Make sure the cables are securely fastened and pushed in. What CPU do you have? Because the CPU may not have integrated graphics, so only the GPU can transfer a signal. Just keep the GPU in all the time, it allows for better performance even when surfing the web (hardware acceleration.)

Hi folks, I'm having problems with my wireless connection on my desktop computer and I'm really stuck! The signal regularly drops to 1 bar and the speed will fluctuate anywhere between <1Mbps up to 11Mbps (although it's usually at the lower end), and sometimes it will lose connection with the router all together.
I've used a Belkin USB dongle and more recently a TP-Link PCI Express card, both N150. My router is a D-Link N150. Both the dongle and the adapter have had the same issues. In comparison, my Lenovo Z570 laptop and before it got destroyed my housemate's HP laptop had no issues, which basically leaves me with just my PC as a possible cause or some sort of setting somewhere.

PC spec:
Motherboard: Asus P7H55-M LE
Processor: i3
OS: Windows 8

It just got here today and I hooked it up and it looks like it's running fine, beeped once on start up and the LED lights lit up and the fan was spinning. However, when I hooked up the monitor it says "No signal" for the DVI and VGA. I've tried two different monitors to see if that was the case but still said "No signal". This is frustrating and since the computer is new and expensive I'm scared to open it up and start messing with things because I have no idea what is what. (I'm only 15 btw, my parents don't know about computers at all so I'm by myself with this) Please help!

A:No video signal during boot sequence

The video card may not be recognized/accessed until the computer boots up fully. Do you know if you have an Onboard video port on the motherboard?? If so, try connecting to that and booting the computer to see if it shows anything on first boot and then goes away as soon as it goes to boot windows..

Could check the BIOS settings for anything to do with how video is treated, if it is set to try and use both Onboard or an extra video card, try switching it to only an extra card. However, if the card dies and you're forced to use onboard you will have to reset the BIOS before you can use it again.

The 220 is less than half the performance value of an 8800. Of the 200 series, you would need a 260 to better a 8800.

Personally, I'd go for GTX 550Ti or better as they are the newest GPU's and use less power for their performance level.

Hi guys, bought a new PC recently and got everything set up fine, except the GPU.

Its all installed correctly but when I go to install the drivers from either Windows Update or the given CD and restart to save changes, I lose video signal.

I see the boot screen and Windows 7 loading bar, afterwards my screen says "Mode not supported".

I'm using the Nvidia 560 Ti and my screen is a Samsung LE19R86BD.

Is the installation possibly switching to 1080 while my monitor isn't supporting it?

A:No video signal after installing GPU software/drivers

I've read that there are times when the driver can't properly read the EDID data from the TV, and causes display problem. Can you boot into safe mode, change the display setting to 1440x900, then reboot into normal mode? Looks like your nVidia card has both HDMI & DVI connection, maybe try changing connection from one type to the other?

The driver I found on nVidia's site is version 285.62. Is that what you have?

GTX EVGA no Secondhand -- had a w psu in it I installed the card and attached both pin power cables and I got a single beep no signal and my computer wouldn t boot into the operating system I figured this might Secondhand EVGA GTX 460 -- no signal! be due to my power supply being under the recommended wattage so I bought a Zippy w psu and I m still having the same Secondhand EVGA GTX 460 -- no signal! problem My old card still works fine so no problem with the motherboard I ve tried uninstalling the old gpu drivers and still nothing The error code that my computers lights display translates to quot Other failure quot which Secondhand EVGA GTX 460 -- no signal! according to dell means there is most likely a hardware failure Is this a common problem and is there a solution or am I now the proud owner of a paperweight Thanks in advance Nesh nbsp

A:Secondhand EVGA GTX 460 -- no signal!

Maybe Dell don't allow you to change the graphics card? Maybe you can try the card in a friend's PC.

Btw $230 is very expensive for that card, about twice the market value.

Hey Guys!

I just finished putting together my computer today, it seemed to go smoothly, took me longer than expected, but when I turned it on and plugged in my monitor, there was no signal detected by my monitor...

What steps should I take to figure out what is wrong or what should I double check before worrying that the MB is busted?

A:After building and checking for fan operation, no signal to monitor

I double-checked a lot of things... is it possible that the motherboard I'm using doesn't support monitors through the VGA cable? I don't have a DVI cable atm...

Also could the SATA cables from the SSD HDD or DVD drives interfere with this if they are in the wrong SATA port?

I am not sure what else I should try at this point... and its frustrating to say the least

I have a Gigabyte GA-MA785G-US2H mobo with radeon HD 4200 graphics. It has HDMI 1.3 and I have an old TV lying around which happens to have HDMI input. I just built a new PC so, I decided to hook up these 2 and make a Boxee box.

I have Ubuntu installed on the to-be boxee and on the new machine I have Windows 7 Home Premium.

When I plug in the HMDI cable, nothing happens, that is, no display on the TV. I even doubled checked everything-input, cable!

Am I doing something wrong here? The TV is a Hitachi L32S02A.

The cable is HDMI 1.3 one.

I even tried the new PC which has my Radeon HD 6770 on it-still nothing!

What should I try now?

A:No signal through HDMI

Change your resolution to 1366x768 or lower and make sure the refresh rate is 60 before connecting to the tv..? Set tv to hdmi1 or hdmi2 input.

I got a computer that was wiped clean, I know everything worked before I got it, now I am trying to install the os and can't get signal to the monitor??? Please help!!

A:No signal to monitor

First thing I would do, is (if you have not had this pc on and working before) check which video output socket that your monitor is plugged into.
Is the pc using integrated graphics, or does it have a separate graphics card?
Be sure you have monitor attached to the correct socket, i.e. for integrated graphics you use the motherboard blue VGA socket.
It's possible if there was a previous owner, they used a different setup to what you expect.

Hey everyone!

I have a LinkSys e4200 router. The wireless signal is not going through all the walls in our house. We have a spot in our house (that we often hang out in) that is unable to connect to our wireless network because the network is not able to be detected.

A friend gave me a Netgear WPN824v3 (RangeMax Wireless Router). This router has a repeater mode.

I was wondering if it is possible to setup the e4200 as the base station router and the netgear wpn824v3 as the repeater. I don't know if these devices will work with each other or not.

Any ideas?

A:£130 budget to increase wireless signal

Check this out. It is a wireless router that claims to have up to a 2000 meter range.. Even if it does half of that you would still be in great shape. At this price I am tempted to buy one myself even though I do not need it.

Also on a side note: could it be possible something is interfering with your router's signal? Cordless phone or similar device. If this is the case you may want to invest in a dual band router.

A:No signal to monitor

Video input problems can be caused by many things, but to me it just sounds like your graphics card died.

To identify the problem (I assume the computer still 'starts'), please tell me:

Do the monitors work on another computer?

Do you have a computer in which you can try the graphics card? If so, please do and share the results.

Have you had any heat related problems before?

Does your motherboard produce any beeps on startup?

Heat crashes mostly happen during long gaming-sessions, or when the computer is on for a long time.

If the motherboard produces (a) beep(s) on startup, see this for info on the problem.
If the monitor(s) work on another pc, they obviously aren't the problem.
If the graphics card works on another pc, there's probably something else that has died, like the cpu.

I hopes this helps you along (if still necessary ofcourse)

The monitor hasnt gain signal even if i restarted. It keeps sleeping, because it doesnt have any input signal. Also when i leave it on it suddenly gets signal an has display for a few secs or min, then loses it again. What could be the problem? If it never had happen before. What should i do or any recommendations, Suggestions?

A:No monitor display, no input signal

Update your video card drivers from the manufactures site. If you cannot get to that point, unplug your power and video card cord from the back of your computer, then hold in your power button for a minute. This will suck up the remaining electricity. Then of course plug it all back in. If this works still make sure to update your drivers\windows update.

A:No signal to monitor

same prob; a couple ideas.

Hi, Lisa- I have the same prob right now. I tried a couple easy things, but they have not worked, so I am going to have to dig in and try more serious ideas.

But here is an easy one for you that might work.

(before you goof around inside the comp, you need to be certain you know how to do it safely - there are components in there that, even when unplugged, can shock and possibly electrocute you; plus, goofing around in there can shock the comp, damaging it from your static electricity.)

The beep heard when you start the computer actually is a code for something. You can google "POST beep codes," or similar, and figure out what, of five or six messages, the pattern of beeps mean. ("POST" means 'power-on self-test.')

The usual, brief but cheerful POST one-beep means everything is OK, as far as the hardware of the computer goes: RAM is working, motherboard is working, video is working, and keyboard is detected and working - off the top of my head, I don't know what else.

If that is the beep you hear, then the motherboard is OK, and the RAM is likely OK. It is also likely that the video processor is OK - the video processor might either be built into the motherboard, or may be a card that is plugged in to the motherboard.

Either way, it doesn't usually have an effect on the beeps: if you hear the one beep, then the video part of the computer is OK, and the problem is some other mystery - I could only give guesses that would be more confusing than illuminating. You have switched monitors, so that is unlikely.

If you get two long beeps - they may almost sound like one beep because the gap between the two beeps can be very brief - then, that means that the compuetr is turning on, and doing a self-test, and figuring out that the video part is not working. (the beep lets you know, since there is no way for a message to come on the screen!).

If the beep pattern is something different, you will have to look at a general guide to "POST" self-check beep patterns, or find the guide to the beep patterns for these computers specifically. As far as I have ever seen, the POSt beep patterns have always been the same across computers.

If it is two long beeps, then the computer cannot operate the video processor part for some reason. This is totally independendent of whether you have a working monitor plugged in or not (sorry - as you figured out, no easy solution there).

Somehow, the computer has lost the ability to operate the video. This could either be due to hardware or software failure. Or, possibly, inadequate power coming into the comp - if wiring has been redone, it is possible that the power is not steady enough to push the juice through to run everything. It is also possible your computers have a switch to let you set power - like 120 volt or 220 volt.

The actual power supply unit in the comp - that converts electricity from the wall into the style needed for the various parts of the comp - could be dying, but i see that as kind of unlikely.

If so, this could be a problem - but that is a long shot.

It is probably either a physical problem with the motherboard (dirty, shorted out, bent til some connection broke), the video card (if the card is a separate plug-in) (card is not plugged in properly, is dirty, got twisted and some commection broke),

OR the problem is that the computer's most basic software instructions, BIOS (basic in-out system) has a setting that does not match your specific video arrangement.

(this is my problem right now).

normally, the BIOS can be seen on-screen, and changed, if you press a certain button on the comp before everything else starts up. This program looks like old "DOS" programming, and like a control panel with a lot of choices to go in and change BIOS settings.

If, somehow, someone changed settings for video, this could cause the problem. But you or the family w... Read more

I moved from New York to Florida a while ago, and i hooked up everything, but when I connect the DVI cable from the monitor to the video card, it doesn't work. (I used 3 DVI cords and the one that came when I bought the monitor) It worked in New York before packing everything.

Right now the monitor is using a VGA cord to my laptop to use it, so the monitor works fine. Plugging the VGA cord to the MOBO itself doesn't work either. Could it be the video card gone bad, and how do I check if the MOBO is the problem? Also, it doesn't play the sound when it went to that welcome thing as I waited for it for an hour to play, so I don't think it even starts

A:DVI no signal

When you tried the onboard graphics output did you remove the graphics card? if not try it.

It could just be that something inside the case has come loose, open it up and reseat all the connections.

When you boot do all the fans start running and can you hear if the hard drive is starting up?

A:Getting no monitor signal, no keyboard or mouse indicator

Let's see now, I think I might be able to give you a qualified guess as for your PC's problem:

kdkhan said:

1. There comes no signal on my monitor even standby orange light doesn't go green for a second.

2. Similarly there is no power / light on my keyboard and mouse while CPU fan and two other case fans are spinning and CPU led is flashing properly.

3. There is no beep sound whatsoever until I remove the RAM. The tower looks working but no output.Click to expand...

This basically would indicate that unless the PSU delivers inaccurate voltage, your motherboard is zapped by electrostatic discharge. Shorted, in other words. Personally, I've seen the very same symptoms on dozens of customer-PC's, and it's always the motherboard.

I recently build a PC at my own very first time. Surprisingly, it was 100% Ok and I used it for around a month.Click to expand...

Glad to hear that it worked your first time , but tell me this; did you (do you?) use the proper protection? Any of the following?; ESD-wristband, ESD-mat, PSU-cord plugged in grounded outlet, plastic gloves(/plastic screwdriver)?

You mentioned that you did build it for the very first time, so I did figure that you might be in the crosshair of classical beginner-mistakes (forgive me if I'm incorrect, I'm not trying to be rude or anything )

ESD is a very serious thing, and it costs the industry millions every year. When building PC's, it's very important to be grounded, or else you might zap components. Some damaged components might not even show any symptoms until after a very long time.

Later I sold my PSU and RAM to a guy as I have an other branded PC for my own use. Now I again bought used RAM of same specs i.e. DDR2 800MHz and a PSU of Coolermaster 650 watts and installed them in.Click to expand...

Let's see now, you opened the case up again, installed the components, and now your PC is displaying classical shortage symptoms?

I checked my monitor, hard drive, graphic card and RAM on other system and they all are working fine. I arranged an other PSU of 450 watt but no success. Even I replaced my CPU but in vain. While motherboard supplying power to all fans, its system light on board is flashing, and when I remove the RAM it properly gives the beep of no RAM but still nothing on monitor, keyboard and mouse. I tried different dimms but no luck.Click to expand...

You've tested every other component, and the PSU seems strong enough to support your setup, and your PC is displaying classical shortage symptoms.

Yeah... sorry to say this, but I think you've shorted your motherboard.


I think my mobo is OK as all fans are spinning, board and led lights are fine and it beeps when there is no RAM.Click to expand...

It usually still does that after a shortage...

I'm going to let some other TechSpot hero say his/her thoughts about this, but at least, I think your motherboard is shorted due to ESD from your latest component-swapping inside the case.

Provided of course that you did not use the proper protection against ESD...

I ve just done a new build which consists of Asus P H -M monitor signal No to x gb Corsair RAM Intel i Win Power Plus w PSU No signal to monitor ATI Radeon HD I put all the pieces in place but I get no signal No signal to monitor to the monitor I ve tried removing each component one by one until I am left with only the CPU but still the error continues I ve tried the onboard graphics when the GPU isn t connected but it still happens What could it possibly be I ve reset the CMOS reseated the No signal to monitor RAM and CPU but nothing helps I ve also tried unplugging the power and holding the front power switch on for seconds but to no avail I ve never even heard of the PSU brand so I think it might be a problem with the quality of that It was so yeah not great quality There is no beeping although I m not sure if the motherboard even has a beeper At the moment I m trying to get it working with the onboard graphics to eliminate the possibility of a graphics card error I ve tried Removing each component one by one until left with just the CPU Unplugging the power and holding the on switch for seconds A known working PSU Reseating and re-plugging everything Resetting CMOS monitors via different cables - VGA DVI and HDMI Building it outside the case on a non-conductive surface I m baffled Thoughts nbsp

A:No signal to monitor

First test to do is prove the monitor and it's cable works, on another pc, or vga out on a laptop, (if you have a spare pc or can use one for this check.)
Then when you can rely on the monitor, connect it to the onboard vga socket, leave your video card out of the motherboard for now.
Connect your hard drive and a DVD drive.
Look for a 4-pin socket on the motherboard near the CPU, it needs a lead from the PSU, (if relevant to your pc).
Press power on button. What happens? Any activity from HDD or DVD front LED?
Any fans running in PSU or CPU ?
Any text on screen?
If no to all, then PSU is suspect.
If you can try a different PSU and still no activity, then motherboard is suspect.
If LED on DVD flashes, hold in power button to force shutdown.
Power on, Press your BIOS access key (F2 or Esc or Del whichever yours is).
Can you see BIOS screen, then 'On board devices'?
If yes, then set the 'on board devices' / 'integrated graphics' to enabled.
In boot sequence, make CD/DVD drive 1st, then 'on-board SATA' 2nd.
Then F11 to 'save & exit'.
If you get this far, it's probably going to be enough to install Windows, connect to the net via CAT5 cable to modem/router, activate Windows etc.

Hi everyone I m new to posting on this forum but over the years it has proven very useful in helping me So I m really hoping someone here has a answer to my problem Ok basically what s happen is my optima computer turns on optical mouse lights up keyboard lighs however don t light up and the monitor stays in standbye mode and says breifly quot no signal quot So basically Monitor has no signal you can not use the computer at all However if I pull the blue monitor cable out the message on the monitor changes Monitor has no signal to no cable connected so it s oviously Monitor has no signal connected fine What I have tried Ok so first I tried unplugging the monitor and setting it up on another computer and it worked fine so ruled out that problem So I then took the monitor back to the computer that s got problems and tried the monitor cables off the other computer the monitor just tested fine on thinking maybe it was a fault with cables However this didn t work So I then left the computer for a few days Then I tried hooking up a new mouse thinking that maybe the mouse isn t functioning and in turn isn t taking the monitor off stanby mode so it can resume to windows I thought this because the broken computer is actually running all lights are on fans working it s just as if computer from startup is in stanby according to the monitor quot if that makes sense quot This at first worked however once the computer loaded to windows it froze on the startup screen I then had to reset the computer using the main power quot as Ctrl Alt Del wouldn t work quot and on restart we were back to scratch no signal showing again So again left the computer sit for a week Unplugged the computer tower today took it down stairs blew out all dust inside it thinking that might be the issue Then instead of hooking it back up in my sons room were it usually resides I instead unhooked my main computer and plugged my sons broken one in so it was hooked up to totally different leads and monitor Amazing enough it worked first go restarted it numerous times with no problems So did a bit of a cleanup and a few virus scans confident it was fixed unplugged it and took it back into my sons room Hooked it back up initially it started up fine no problems then froze when I tried to click on the start button So I restarted it again it loaded no problems went for a little longer then froze again Only after that restart were now again back to the no signal coming up on the monitor mouse still lit up light a christmas tree but no lights on the keyboard I m almost positive if I went to all the effort of unplugging it again and hooking it up to were my main computer is again it will work fine I m just totally stumped as to what the problem might be It has to be something causing a issue in that room but I m really stumped as to what The monitor was tested and works the changing of monitor leads didn t make a difference And all that really leaves different is the power cord However if the power cord was a issue why is the tower getting power and occasionally running then freezing If anyone could help it would be much appretiated I m so over pulling leads out and carting it around the house lol And my son is driving me nuts about getting it working for him I know a bit about computers have always fixed everything myself when it comes to them but in saying that I m not a genious either I can t afford at this stage to take it to our local computer guys but in saying that they have never been able to fix something I couldn t anyway I know this has got to be something simple but it s just driving me crazy Also if it was a graphics card I would think it would still act up when I changed it s location nbsp

A:Monitor has no signal

So let me see if I can clear this up for myself:

The monitor cables work fine.

The monitor itself works fine.

The monitor even worked for a bit hooked up to your son's computer

But, at the moment, the monitor won't work with your son's computer.

Is that correct?

A:No signal to my monitor unless I use onboard graphics

once youve insert a graphics card into the board it alot of time becomes the primary display. this setting can also be manipulated in the bios of some computer manufacturers. Your monitor is probably not getting a signal becuase the adapter is not enable in the computer or the settings of the card are not set to spec that can display on your monitor (resolution to high or low, refresh rate, etc)

So yesterday I was on my computer and my monitor started displaying a "check signal cable" message on my screen. First thing I thought was oh snap my video card took a crap on me. So I plugged the monitor into the built in vga port. Still same thing. Then I thought, I would try plugging the monitor into my laptop. So I plugged it into my laptop. The laptop registered it was there so I set up duel screens. The laptop knew that the monitor was there, you could scroll of the laptop screen to the desktop screen, but still the monitor reads check signal cables. I then decided that my VGA cable must be faulty, so i replaced that. Still same error. I really don't want to get a new monitor, I have fallen in love with this one.

Any Ideas?

A:Which router should I get for a stronger signal & help with laptop wireless

You will never find routers listed by distance (feet, yards, meters, etc). They use dBm to show the amount of power used to transmit the signal. Signal strength all depends on the line of sight, objects in the way, and other variables. Higher dBm is better if you are looking for maximum distance.

As far as laptops, they generally come with built in wireless NICs. You are talking about an actual express card that you plug directly into the laptop. Here is an example of an expresscard expansion slot:

The different channels on the router won't affect the signal what so ever. The different channels are used if you are in a suburban area with many wireless networks nearby or anywhere else with many networks in close proximity.

The only thing that comes to mind is that either your built in NIC is bad or you need a better one.

I would suggest checking your video cable unplug it and check the pins of they are ok plug it back in and make sure it is in properly and snug.

Then next thing to is check the video card make sure it is seated properly.

Make sure you have the video cable connected to the right connector you will have one that came with your motherboard and one to your graphics card make sure it is in the right one.

typically, dual monitors is not done with VGA, or if so, is implemented using a 'Y' cable.

I'm hoping you'll be able to temporarily use your system's integrated video chip on boot-up instead of your graphics card. Then you might be able to resolve this issue by uninstalling and reinstalling your video card's drivers.

If you had a spare to test it you'd be able to see but if thats a no option then all you can do is make sure you're leads are all in correctly ( if you have a graphics card make sure it hasn't poped out of the motherboard slightly ) and then just keep trying matey.

Try reseating the graphics card and while you're in there double check all data and power cable connections for tightness. It's possible something came loose during the process of moving the PC.

If that doesn't help, maybe the graphics card or possibly the power supply has failed. Even though it can provide some power, the PSU might not be able to provide enough total power. Just because a part is new doesn't mean it can't fail. What power supply did you buy and what are the other components?

A:Built in wireless wont give internet access even tho good signal

Did it work prior to this problem? If yes what did you change in the system? Go into the router administration and it should tell you if the router is connected to the internet. Belkin routers have this feature. Look and see under the DHCP (LAN) section if the wireless PC is being seen. Did you setup:

SSID: deephect
Mode: 802.11(b,g,n) Mix
Wireless Channel: 11 or set it to manually
Passcode? (password)

This above SSID and passcode have to match-up on the wireless device you're using.

On the router if you don't see connected, make sure you do a refresh and not a reset to factory default?

Every once in a while, my router fails (due to a problem in part by the supplier). The common solution to this is that i unplug it for a couple seconds, replug it, and the net comes back on.

Now i got three computers sharing this connection. Two of them will re-detect the connection, and everything works fine. Not so for the third system.

It refuses to detect. I have to end up disabling and re-enabling the wireless card, and it gets backs detecting again.

It is a rather cumbersome procedure.

Does anybody have any solution?

Are you seeing a lot of drops on the LAN and WAN (internet)

Router you got there as anyone updated the firmware on it? If you flashed the firmware on it and it does the same thing. Time to replace the wireless router.

**I don't know my computer specs and obviously can't get it from my computer but if you tell me where to find it on the chips, I can try to do that.**

My computer isn't very old, no more than a year, it's been working fine. No new software or hardware. I haven't moved it. This morning it wouldn't boot up properly. After clicking the button, it gave 1 long beep and 2 short ones. No signal to monitor. I didn't check keyboard or mouse. All fans appear to be working.
I replugged everything to make sure nothing was loose, and turned it back on. No more beeps, still no signal to monitor. Keyboard and mouse aren't lighting up.
I tried unplugging the power cord and pressing the button to clear the power. Still no beeps, no signal. All fans are still working.

Any suggestions please?

I need some help. Just built this system and I'm having some trouble. Specs below.

InWin X Fighter Chasis
Intel i7-860
Intel DP55SB Mobo
1TB WD Cavier
2900 XT Radeon
4GB Kingston Hyper V Ram
500 Watt Cooler Master (Prob going to return for 750W this weekend)

There is VGA out on the monitor and DVI into the card. I just got that cable today, plugged it in and the monitor says No Signal.

What should I do? Already stripped it bare, rebuilt - made sure things were connected and such...Could I have bought the wrong DVI cable? Thanks in advance!!

A:Acer laptop drops wireless signal

I have had the same problem with a Acer Aspire 5920g, we narrowed it down to being a incompatible router. How long exactly can you stay connected for? Does it drop off after 5 minutes and then do you have to reconnect it or it will eventually reconnect itself?
The 5920g we had i personally believe went wrong because of the wireless n capable adapter it had which when we bought it was one of the first out!
One thing that i would recommend to try though, if you have (or can get hold of) a usb network adapter see if you have the same problem connecting your laptop through that. Then we may be able to narrow down if its hardware or software.

So last night before I went to bed I was on my computer everything was working fine. I come back to use it this morning and my monitors aren't doing anything. The lights are blinking as if they are in sleep mode or something. I have tried plugging the monitors in to my laptop and they both work fine. I have tried another video card in my computer and nothing showed up with that one either. I got it to start up and had signal a few times but now don't seem to be having any luck at all. I also tried putting the video card in to the second slot that I have and that didn't work either. Would this be a motherboard issue or maybe a power supply issue? I'm running out of ideas here.

Thank you for any help!

Hi I have a computer that was working perfectly and after using compressed air it won t give a signal to the monitor the keyboard doesn t light beep monitor signal, startup on or no keyboard No up I m assuming no power to the mouse No monitor or keyboard signal, no beep on startup either and there is no beep when I start it No monitor or keyboard signal, no beep on startup Internet cable lights up when I connect it and the speakers make a quot pop quot noise like its receiving signal fromt the sound card I tested the monitor RAM and graphics card on another computer and they seem fine Fans are running okay and I removed the little circular battery from the mother board for half an hour to drain it but still nothing Does this sound like a motherboard problem I have a K N platinum and if you suggest it is this can you recommend a new motherboard as this doesn t seem to be easy to come by anymore Hopefully its not the hard drive Thank you for checking this one out and PS - baby steps are appreciated nbsp

A:No monitor or keyboard signal, no beep on startup

Compressed air, not treated by difluoroethane gas or other static electricity preventative, is a very dangerous destroyer of computers... We have seen at least 12 computers destroyed by Compressed Air... one I did myself in my learning days...
Since then, we have run a lot of tests with canned air... All that are not treated are dangerous. All that come from a bench tank are just about guaranteed to destroy a computer system board, CPU, or other critical components...
And the static electricity can flow through several components before it finds a way to ground.

I have a Compaq desktop which I have had sitting up for a while, it isn't but maybe 5 years old. I say it's been sitting up for about a year. Well anyways, I decided to break it out and get it going again. I got all my hardware, the CPU, HDD, 1GB DDR2 RAM, and a CD drive. I put everything back in properly and it does not POST beep at startup nor does the monitor get any signal. Anyone have any ideas what could be causing this problem?

A:No POST beep or video signal

See if there's anything in this post that helps;

Oh, and did you remember to plug in the CPU (4 pin) power connector..? That can be such a deal breaker.

Sometimes, a PSU can go bad while sitting around. I've had one myself that wouldn't restart after it was powered off. (That said, the caps were whining pretty bad while it was running).

i've just built a system with the following components:

ASUS P5G41T-M/CSM LGA 775 Intel G41 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 Yorkfield 2.66GHz 4MB L2 Cache LGA 775 95W
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST31000528AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5"
A-DATA 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)

no video card as i bought the mobo because it has onboard HDMI. the computer starts up, i get a beep, but there is no signal through either the VGA or HDMI outputs. i've tried it hooked up to the TV as well as a monitor. no OS installed on there right now, but i should still be seeing a BIOS screen right? anyone know what i should be looking at to fix this? appreciate any help!

A:New system build - no signal to monitor

Perhaps you need HD drivers for that port to work. Try using the analog D-Sub connector until you can install them after the OS is installed.

I am setting up a new ASUS M4A785T-M board and can't boot my OS because the bios is set wrong; I can't change the bios because I'm not getting a video signal. I'm using a VGA monitor/cable which I've verified are working with another laptop. The board puts out no video signal (as indicated by the monitor flashing the on/off light). I'm wondering if the board defaults to the more modern DVI format, or if I have a faulty card. Does anyone know if it defaults to DVI, or if there is any way I can get video to my VGA monitor?

Hey there I'm sure you have dealt with plenty of this but I've tried everything I can think of to get my new build to at least show video. This is my new rig:

Video Card: GIGABYTE GV-R465OC-1GI Radeon HD 4650
Ram: OCZ Gold 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EARS 1TB 5400 RPM
Mother Board: ASRock M3A770DE AM3 AMD 770 ATX
CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 630 Propus 2.8GHz

Now the problem is that I had plugged an old monitor into the vga slot on the video card but I don't get a signal to the monitor although everything else including the graphic cards fan is running fine. Please if anyone can help I would be greatful. Also let me know what you think of the rig. Thanks.

A:Need help, No signal to monitor

Can you test your graphics card in another PC?

I am having trouble with my pc starting up, yesterday i went to turn it on and got no signal to the monitor although i can hear it boot up and makes sound from windows start up but no signal was detected on both my monitors, the graphics card fan is running extremely loud so i thought it might be that,
so i switched to an older card and that seemed to boot up fine but was told it was running lower since not enough power was getting to the card,
my current card is a 9800gtx+ and it requires 2 separate power connections my older card doesn't so it's less power hungry by a long shot.

so where is the problem lying would you suspect my mobo is toast or the psu?
it's not a new pc btw has been running fine for 2 years and psu is more than capable of running it.

A:No signal to monitor

Hi kitaz.

If your system works fine with your older card, then your motherboard is not "toast". What are the specs of your older card? Also, what PSU are you presently using? Also ensure that both power connectors are plugged into the GPU.

Before putting in the 9800GTX did you uninstall all previous graphics drivers?

Sorry to bring this up again (i had another thread on this) but I recently moved my DIR-628 downstairs, the signal is extremely low. This router supports 5ghz but i set it to 2.4 ghz because some devices won't pick up the 5ghz signal.

The DIR-628 is connected to my modem(from my ISP). Can I connect my other router DIR-625 to my DIR-628 and use one as an access point and the other as the main router?

A:Extremely Low Wireless Signal

I would put back where you had it. The issue you are having now could be anything that's interfering with the wireless.

I am trying to repair a computer for a friend of mine It was given to me yesterday and would not post I cleared the cmos and all seemed to be fine until i tested it with the vga cable There is no picture from the moment you power on as in no bios screen nothing The vga cable has been tested on another computer and is working DVi works fine still I cant find any markings on the motherboard that tell me what make it is but i think it has intergrated graphics on the board as there is another vga port on the back the graphics card is a GS In Dvi signal ok vga no the bios i have enabled the pci express as the primary graphics device I think its a faulty vga port on the back of the gpu but maybe someone here might know better If this was the case i was thinking of suggesting he buy a dvi to vga adapter thanks for reading nbsp

A:Dvi ok vga no signal

well buying an adapter would certainly fix the problem if the regular VGA port is bad; he should have one already that came shipped with the card if purchased as an add-on component. do you know what chipset the motherboard uses? you can just run CPU-Z and find the make/model of the motherboard. there may also be information in the BIOS itself. if the computer was built by a manufacturer (i.e. gateway, dell, hp etc...) then you can look up the model of the tower and get the specs.

Hi, I am a AT&T customer with a 2Wire513 modem/router which is wired to one desktop PC and wireless to two laptops.

I have an old Linksys WRT160N router that I purchased right before AT&T sent me the 2Wire Gateway. My laptops are too far away from the gateway to get a good, steady Internet connection.
Is there a way to use my Linksys router between my two laptops and my gateway to provide the laptops with Internet, without the router having to be plugged into a phone jack?

I think what I need to do is install DD-WRT on my Linksys router first, but I'm unsure of where to go next. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm having the hardest time figuring this out and I'm completely stumped! Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

I have a computer here with Windows Vista on it and it was moved and now the Monitor doesn't get signal, when you turn the monitor and computer on the monitor goes straight into sleep mode (it's been tested on multiple monitors with the same exact thing happening)

The other day I went and bought a brand new video card to see if that would fix it cause I had the thought that maybe it was the video port, but it did the exact same thing after I installed the video card.

What's going on with it?

A:No Video Signal

are the video cards and the motherboard compatable? And did you already have the old video card in there working before and it just stopped recently?

I really hope someone can help me with this. My monitor is displaying a no signal message at startup, not even showing the windows boot screen. However, I plugged the cable into the on board graphics card and it works fine, it's only when I try it on my other card that there's a problem. I've cleaned and reseated the card, but no joy.

This is a completely out of the blue problem. It was working fine last night, tried to turn it on this morning, and this happened. Any advice? Or do I just have to get a new graphics card?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Try to check if it is well plug in the AGP or PCI Express slot in you PC. If yes then you Graphic card is dead you will need to change it.

Probably PSU components and has degraded overtime, so checking it out is worth a try. Especially if you are running one of the hottest CPUs of the olden days ... its a Prescott core right?
