No signal

By m4iu ·
When trying to bring up my home computer, it appears the cpu is functioning properly but the only thing displayed on my monitor is " No Signal". I have removed and replaced the video card with one from another computer but continue to receive the above message. I don't know how to get past this to begin to diagnosis the problem.

If the computer is on and the monitor receives a "No Signal," verify that the card is inserted all the way. verify that the monitor cable is connected to the computer.

Try the card in another computer. You may have a bad video card if the problem follows the card. If the card works with another monitor, then look at the cable coming from the monitor and verify that the pins are straight and okay.

I have already been that route. Another computer that is hooked up and works is fine with my video card and cable. Both computers are connected thru a network to the internet and with the second computer back with it orginal componets have developed the same trouble. Is it possible it have a shared virus and if so how do get past it to delete it from both computers?
Thank you

I hate to bring up the obvious, but check for a loose IDE cable. I found when swapping cards in one of my systems, it consistently knocked the IDE cable loose, so I'd have to re-tighten it on the drives and Mobo, or the system would just sit there. Also, is the system just beeping once like it normally does? If not, that's a sure sign of a problem.

Check for a missing or bent pin on the monitor's video cable.

"No signal" on new monitors means that there is no physical electronic connection between the inside of the monitor and your video card. It looks like your monitor cable may be screwed up. Try moving the cable in random directions while your computer is on and if you get a picture, force the cable to be in that spot all the time, for example, use a wood clamp to hold it there. Did you try other monitors? If that is the case, then try a different PCI/ISA slot.
