Asus monitor "DVI No Signal"

By Luhy ·
I just moved from Brooklyn, NY to Elgin, TX and my monitor no longer works. It is an Asus VH236 and I use a DVI to DVI wire to connect it to my PC. When I turn on my monitor the light on the monitor turns blue and the screen reads "DVI No Signal" for a moment, then the light turns orange and it goes black. The PC remains blue and fine the entire time. What has changed? Do I need different wires in a new state? Did my monitor break somehow? Thanks for any help

It sure sounds like the video card has gone bad,

so, you may have to procure a replacement, unless your mothrboard has on-
board graphics. These aren't normally as full-featured or powerful, BUT, it
beats looking at a blank screen. If you have an on-board graphics, the jacks
will be similar, but probably not DVI, probably SVGA, you might need a different
cable to hook up the monitor (which you know IS working after your PS2 experience!)
Check the back of your computer, see if you have the VGA port, and connect your
monitor to it. You may need to re-enable on-board graphics in your BIOS when
you boot up.

Check the PC's monitor settings

If you have another video cable, try swapping it in.

Check the video settings on the computer.
Control Panel > Display > Change Display Settings (for Win7)
Depending on your hardware this might be accessed through a utility that is manufacturer specific to your video card (or both).
