Your graphics card or chip is dead.
Check that the cable running from the PC to the monitor is securely connected at both ends and has not suffered any damage.
If it still gives the No Signal error then you need a new graphics card or motherboard depending on if its onboard graphics or a separate card.

Reseat the memory chips, if more that one tries then one at a time if only one change the socket to

the other one, if still not working try a difference memory chip 64, 128, 256, etc of the correct type

and see if the display come up if it does you have bad memory chips

Size of the memory chip does not matter, as you only want to check the display come up
