Recently ive come across a problem with my computer. If i have the monitor turned off and then turn my computer on, after the computer starts up and then i turn my monitor on the "no signal input shows up".

However if i open my monitor first and then open my computer everything works fine :)

Can someone tell me whats wrong please

Hey liger636.

It's normal, when you turn your monitor on for a few seconds for it to show 'No Input'.
The signal hasn't made it to the monitor yet from the video card, so it can lag a little sometimes.

However, if this continues for longer than a few seconds it may indicate a problem with your video card or monitor.


Cheers,
Deon :)

Yea it stays in the "no signal input" mode untill i restart my computer with the monitor on while the computer starts up

Hmm i always leave my computer on overnight and have been doing so for quite a while so i duno if that would be the cause of the problem.

Also recently i wiped the dust inside my computer with some toilet paper gently. Could that have triggered it??
