Black screen and no signal

  R1ch1984 18:01 05 Feb 2019

Hi all So I'm getting black screen of death let's say. I turn pc on and my monitor gets no signal. My monitor is fine I've tested this on another pc. But I've also noticed when I turn pc on and I get no signal it also appears my pc Doesn't boot fully. Normally it takes 15secs to turn pc off holding the power button down. But I've noticed since this black screen and no signal when I boot the pc it takes just 1 sec. If that makes any sense. Please help

Does your PC have a Graphics Card or, is the graphics on-board?

However, if your Monitor powered-up and getting no signal from it's PC, it should display some kind of "No Signal" logo.

Check its Power Supply

I have a graphics card. I have already checked the power supply and yeh it does say no signal logo then disappear. I've tested the monitor on another pc and it works fine.

Then it's probably your Graphics Card.

First thing to do is to take it out and re-seat it. If it still doesn't work, suspect it has failed but, just in case, plug the Monitor into the on-board Graphics. If you still get a "No Signal", then there is something more serious going on.
