Post 3+ Months Ago

I had a computer built for me a little over a year ago. Everything was working fine. I left the tower running,turned off the monitor and went to use it the next day. On the monitor it said no PC input. I tried to reboot,it has power the fans come on but no beeps or anything else. I am hoping this is something I can fix myself as the place I bought it from is 140 miles round trip. Thanks in advance.

It may be a graphics card issue - if it has it's own fan see if that is still spinning, or carefully touch the pcb and check it's not too hot.

I missed the first reply.........sorry. The only thing that comes up on the monitor is no PC Input. It was working fine......till the next day when I tried to use it.

Just clarifying, the computer is still running fine but the monitor says No Signal Input right?

If thats the case, as far as my experience goes, 3 suggestions. The first and easiest suggestion, is your monitor plugged in securely? Two, as suggested before, your graphics card may have give out. Best way to check that out is to get ahold of or borrow a spare one and replace it with yours, see if that fixes it. Finally, and awkwardly, it may be that your RAM is screwed up or out of place. Its been known to cause this type of error if the RAM stick is corrupted. Again, test your computer with another RAM stick and see if that does it. Aside from those 3 solutions, I'm out of ideas.

Find a little jumper that says "ClearCMOS", should be 3 pins move the jumper across to clear the CMOS, then put it back, once youve done this try now.

*Note make sure you turn your pc off before doing this*
