  prodway 17:46 16 Sep 2005


After buying a new 19" lcd monitor and setting up on my computer everything worked fine,unitil i moved the computer and monitor to a different part of the room.All i have done is disconnect everything carefully and reconnect it all again in another corner of the room now i dont get anything on my monitor other than "No Graphic Input!".Iv tried the monitor on another computer and it works fine.Iv tried a different lead on it and it still dosent work.Iv tried my graphic card in another computer and it worked fine.I cant put my finger on whats wrong.My computer is powering up,i hear it all working although i cant hear the windows intro tune as it starts up.
Can anyone help me?as i feel as iv tried everything.

Cheers Paul.

Put the old monitor on and check resolution

Check ur AGP settings in the BIOS ?

When you unplugged and replugged the monitor, sometimes you can disturb the graphics card in it's slot.

Switch off at the mains, and reseat the graphics card - and try it agian.

Another possible problem is thet you've accidentally bent a pin in the plug at the end of the monitor cable. Check it carefully for bent pins.

Sorry - I should have read what you said more carefully - pls disregard my previous post.

First check you haven't got the keyboard and mouse accidentally swapped over connection-wise. Easy to do!.

Second - failure to boot in such circumstances normally smacks of a bad connection, through disturbance of something. Try reseating RAM - all cables and cards - then processor.

Does you pc have onboard graphics as well as your graphics card?.......in other words are you sure you are connecting the monitor to the correct socket?

If it was CRT Monitor then the TFT will not work on old settings. Try starting in Safe mode keep pressing F5 as computer starts then you need to go to display in Control Panel and alter the resolution
