Resolved Question:

I'm getting a "No Signal" on my Viewsonic monitor. It was working fine until I disconnected it from the computer in order to move it. After reconnecting, it's not getting a signal. I changed out the power cord just in case it was bad. A new video graphic card was installed last week, but the monitor had been working fine after that.

ok

Customer:

ok it's done

cyball83 :

do you have another cable to check it

Customer:

no

cyball83 :

do you have another monitor to check it

Customer:

i've already tried to replace the monitor with another and still it says no signal, and check cable

Customer:

i was thinking of buying a new monitor cable

cyball83 :

if you are sure the computer is working fine then it the signal cable

cyball83 :

not power cable

cyball83 :

please specify the make and model of the computer

Customer:

that's what i was thinking. maybe the pins are bad

cyball83 :

please specify the make and model of the computer


cyball83 :

if the power light is glowing steadily and the hard disk led is blinking that means the computer is working.please check that

Customer:

it's an HP Pavilion a1440n, but has been rebuilt with two hard drives and tons of memory plus a new video card upgraded to run games

cyball83 :

ok when did you rebuild the system

the computer light is glowing steadily and led blinking.

the computer was rebuilt 3 weeks ago by a computer expert friend

cyball83 :

are you chatting from laptop or desktop

Customer:

desktop

cyball83 :

ok you can try this monitor's cable on the other one

they are not compatible since the two pc's have different video cards. This pc I'm on now has the standard video cable, the other has the 8-pin white cable
