How To Fix “No Signal To Monitor” Guide


We all love working on high-speed internet, while it increases our productivity and increases the efficiency through which we perform our task. However, we all stumble upon many issues which freeze our monitor or stop us from working and gives no signal to monitor.

When the PC projects a “no signal message” on the screen, then in this situation, no picture or visual is displayed on the screen, as the monitor fails to receive and send the data. It isn’t very pleasant, trust me.

Such a situation arises due to faulty hardware’s an extremely old system. If you face a similar signal issue with your monitor, don’t worry, as we are here to help you. Below we have mentioned some of the techniques and tricks through which you can resolve your issue instantly.


Method 1: restart the computer

Just like you need extra time to boost up in the morning, your monitor also needs time to refresh. The most basic step suggested by every pro-tech-savvy is to turn off your device and switch it on again.


Yeah, I know it sounds simple, but it's effective. Sometimes your PC is facing just a simple issue that gives you a heart attack for absolutely no reason. It fixes many signals and network issues instantly. When it feels like your device is not working, be it a phone, laptop, or monitor, restart it and wait for results.

method 2:Check cable and power connection

Check if the wires and cords are firmly connected or not. Sometimes loose wire leads to no power supply to the PC, enabling a dark screen in front of you. Loose wiring can be a reason for your system not receiving a proper power supply.

If the computer still displays a no signal alert, it can be possible that the cable is damaged, don't worry, you can replace it easily. Just go to the online stores and order a wire according to your PC, or you can visit a nearby store and tell them your PC's name; they will give you a sturdy and durable wire which can withstand wear and tear.

method 3: Check graphic card and other inputs

The graphic or video card displays images to the monitor screen. If you see a no-signal alert even after following the above steps, then there is a chance that your graphic card is not working properly. You can open up the CPU and insert the same in another monitor to check if it is faulty.


If the graphic card doesn't work on another monitor, you can replace it as there might be some internal damage. Also, it is important to check if the other input sources are connected properly or not, i.e., VGA, HDMI and DVI inputs. These inputs connect several devices to your monitor and if it is loosely plugged, then chances are there for this error appearing on your monitor. 

method 4: Check resolution

Sometimes your graphic card does not support your monitor's visual resolution standards or is set to showcase a display higher than the monitor's capability of displaying; in such case, the monitor displays a black screen in front of you. One can change their screen display setting to solve this issue.

If your monitor display setting has been changed automatically, try to restart your device and boot safely. In safe mode, the monitor uses a lower resolution, which allows you to easily change the settings according to your monitor's capability. In case you are not sure about the exact resolution supported by your computer, you can check it on the brand's website.

method 5:Update graphic card hardware

Sometimes, your monitor supports a high resolution that your graphic card cannot process. It is advised to keep checking for updates on the website. Updating your graphic card’s hardware will fix several issues, and you will also acquire access to new features simultaneously.

method 6:Internal damage - connect with another computer

There might be any internal hardware damage stopping the signal or visuals from reaching the monitor from being displayed on a screen. If you are using an old monitor, chances are your computer's hardware is outdated, capable of supporting new and upgraded apps and software. Running new and latest software and high-end programs requires high processing power, which can easily heat your system within a few hours.

If you face a no signal issue, and everything seems to be okay with the system from the outside, then chances are there for your system to get damaged from the inside. You can connect your system with another monitor, and if it does not display the same message, then there is a problem with your monitor.


However, suppose it still projects the same message. In that case, you should consider calling a professional expert who is tech-savvy as she/he will provide you useful information by opening up the device and examining the hardware.

On the off chance, if you are not able to fix the issue, you can replace either your monitor or system with new one. I hope that this article helped you fix the "No signal To Monitor" issue.
