Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. Could be a lot of things, even a virus. First, tell us about what happened. What were you doing just before the monitor stopped working? Did you download any software or make any changes to your computer?

It is so odd I just shut the computer down at night and the next morning when I turned the computer on it won't connect to the monitor, it came up with a no input signal and went into standby mode? It's not my computer i'm house sitting which makes it worse. I haven't put any new programs on and have only been using to check e-mails and internet seachers.

Ok. It just died and you didn't do anything. So when you go to boot up, you turn on the monitor, it powers up. Then you turn on the computer and it boots up but you see no input signal message displayed on the monitor. It could be that the video card died. First, verify that the monitor cable is securely connected to the computer. Also, try booting into safe mode (press F8 as you boot up). Does the monitor work when you boot into safe mode?

I know this sounds like a stupid suggestion, but I've had the same problem. Unplug both the CPU and the monitor from the wall (or power strip) for abotu 10 seconds, then plug them back in.

It might just be my type of monitor, but it seems like when I make any changes (including removing it from the computer) it's a pain to get going again.

Please let me know if this works for you.
