Viewsonic LCD monitor not recognizing HDMI input signal.

Q: Viewsonic LCD monitor not recognizing HDMI input signal.

hi all - ive got a problem with my new viewsonic vx2753mh-led monitor. its got 2x hdmi inputs and one vga.

the vga works straight off the bat, but whenever I try and plug the hdmi in it just says no input signal detected and goes black

I noticed in device manager that this was installed as 'generic non-pnp monitor' so after jumping through some hoops i managed to install the driver as 'viewsonic vx2753 SERIES'
Anyway this doesnt seem to have made a difference. still no input through the hdmi.

I have tested to cord on my samsung tv and it worked fine so it can't be a problem with the cord or the graphics card....

just some general info that might be of use:
windows 7 x64
dual monitor setup

the graphics is integrated on the intel i5 chip
my display adapters in device manager says Intel(R) HD Graphics Family.
it has a dvi out, hdmi out, and vga out.

thanks for any help you can give!

A: Viewsonic LCD monitor not recognizing HDMI input signal.

I have a Viewsonic which I'm also trying to run a media PC to connected via an HDMI cable, and I have noticed the exact same thing.

It was working fine for awhile, but recently I have been receiving an error on screen saying the "HDMI to DVI cable as experienced an error" or something to that effect. Note: I am using strictly an HDMI cable, not an HDMI to DVI as the message states (can't explain why I'm getting that message). I did the same thing you did, tested the machine using the same cable on another tv, and it worked fine on the other tv. What's strange is I can connect the cable box to the tv using the identical HDMI cable and it worked fine. Tried again using the same cable from the PC to the tv, and either 1) blank screen, or 2) shrunken screen with the aforementioned error which will go blank once I open Media Center.

Sorry, I don't have an answer, but it seems to me Viewsonic hasn't made a good product in terms of connecting media PC's, for some reason. Of course, my tv is out of warranty at this point. If you find an answer, keep me posted, I'll do the same.

I have a Viewsonic VT2430 monitor/tv, and a Windows Vista 64, with ATI 4200 graphics chip PC.

Windows automatically updated last night before shutting down. When I turned on the computer this morning, the HP w2207h monitor was not functioning properly. Each time I rebooted, I received the message "HDMI Input: No Input Signal" before the monitor went to sleep.

I do not believe it is a problem with the sleep and display settings as I have dual monitors and the EN9910 is functioning properly; both are set to NEVER anyway. Further, I have plugged our SONY television into the HDMI port and it works just fine.

I have also plugged the monitor into another computer, using the same cable, and both worked just fine. The hp monitor also functions in the utility mode. Problem seems to exist only when Starting Windows.

This has happened once before with a Windows Update, but I don't recall the solution.

Please help.


A:HDMI Input: No Input Signal -- Monitor Going to Sleep

Hello and welcome aspen can you just make sure the driver for that monitor is ok.

Software & Driver Downloads HP w2207h 22 inch LCD Monitor | HP? Support

But mate I also think you may have answered it yourself in another way. Can you remember when this started happening? If so system restore back to before that date.

Then it is just a matter of downloading any updates if this is what is - one or two at a time until you find which one is the culprit. Make a not of that one and each time it comes up untick it to download / install.

Hi there - I've been successfully connecting my tiny work laptop to my awesomely huge HP desktop using an HDMI cable for about a year now. Just connect the two, put the "HDMI IN" button to connect, and all is well... Except that every 4th or 5th time I do it, it fails and I get the "Game Mode No Video Signal" error instead. I try disconnecting & reconnecting, rebooting, waiting a while and trying later, etc. But, sometimes, it just won't connect no matter how I try to persuade it. Any ideas? Thank you,C.

Hello guys, I believe this is my first post on the forums, so please forgive my ignorance towards computers. My rig is pretty outdated by today's standards, but, until my current problem, I had no issues running video games, (Skyrim, SW:tor, CoD:MW 3). However, about a few weeks ago when I initially woke up the PC up from sleep mode, the desktop would show but then the screen would black, monitor light still green though. About a week ago, when I went to wake it up, the screen light turned green then immediately went orange and a "No Signal Input" warning flashed upon the monitor before it went black, no desktop view this time.

I initially thought monitor or video card. I switched both components, separately, with another PC in which both components are known to work, and the problem still persisted. I then tested the RAM individually, and also tested RAM with the other PC's that works fine. That stretched my PC abilities, thus I took it to a shop, and they did the some checks and came up with no definite solution other than motherboard or PSU. They ordered a 600w PSU and installed it with the same problem. My question is two part I suppose. Would, after those checks, it appear that the problem lay with the motherboard? And if so, would it be worth replacing a motherboard with such outdated hardware?

My PC stats, to the best of my knowledge:
OS: Windows xp sp3
GC: Nvidia 9800 gtx
PC: AMD (cannot recall specific model, but dated no doubt)

I did a search for this topic and came up with no relevant answers so I am putting it out to the group.

I just bought a new Samsung Monitor with digital input. I was under the impression that digital meant DVI which apparently it does not because the only digital input my monitor has is an HDMI input which has me scratching my head in amazement. I have a digital to digital monitor cable with DVI connectors on both ends but I can't use it with this new monitor so for now I have it hooked up to my computer via a VGA cable but I am completely amazed that there would be an HDMI port on a computer monitor.

HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface and it is used in Home Theater applications but it has absolutely no place in computer applications. HDMI carries both a video and audio signal and was created to replace a separate DVI and Hi-Def Audio cable in Home Theater applications but I am at a total loss to understand why someone would stick an HDMI port on a computer monitor. There is no way on earth anyone will ever get Hi-Def audio out of monitor speakers plus the fact that the signal is video only.

As a result I now have an expensive monitor that I can only get half the potential out of unless I can find an HDMI to DVI adaptor (and I hate adaptors) which will only add bulk to the system or I have to hunt for an over priced "boutique" cable that has an DVI connector on one end and an HDMI connector on the other and spend even more money that I shou...

A:HDMI Input On a Monitor? What The Heck??

Because many new video cards and monitors have HDMI and its a newer standard with features better suited to consumers. Why shouldn't they have HDMI? Its a smaller port that's easier to place on a video card and on thinner monitors - very advantageous for thin LED monitors and thin laptops. It does have the advantage of carrying audio as well, and some monitors do contain speakers and video cards with HDMI port do in fact ouput audio - no need for a second audio cable. And don't forget many people now connect their PC's to their TV's and surround sound systems that use HDMI ports - both on the PC end and on the equipment end.

DVI is being phased out in favor for HDMI and DisplayPort, and it is digital just like DVI so there was no deceiving marketing, HDMI would have been marked in the specs clearly as its considered a plus. DisplayPort will eventually replace both - it also carries audio. On smaller panels VGA will give near or the same quality anyways, so you're not losing half the potential anyway.

You can buy a simply ~$6 DVI to HDMI adapter or an HDMI to DVI cable and your problem is solved.
Or a DVI to HDMI Cable: - Hmm, only $12 as they are common and typically in this price range. Definitely not a "boutique" item.

Hey guys, for the past four years I've been running this computer, along with a 1024x768 Curtis monitor and a 1280x720 Vizio monitor. Up until now, I've had absolutely no problems with the dual monitor setup, both running off the GeForce 610.

Yesterday, however, the Vizio monitor, connected via HDMI, randomly stopped receiving input. The Curtis monitor (connected via VGA) still works fine.

What I've tried:

- Rebooting my computer, nothing. (I rebooted after all of the following attempts as well)
- Going to Screen Resolution and manually detecting another monitor. Nothing was detected.
- Going to Device Manager and scanning for hardware changes. Only the VGA monitor is listed as a "Generic Non-PnP Monitor", nothing about the HDMI monitor.
- Updating graphics drivers. I used the built in Windows driver updater, nothing. I used NVIDIA's site and downloaded the recommended driver, nothing.
- Switched the cables between the two monitors, the VGA monitor works while the HDMI monitor does not.
- Tested the HDMI cable with an Xbox, works fine (cable is working).
- System Restore to several days ago when both monitors worked, nothing.
- Booting in safe mode, nothing. (don't think this would work anyway... I tried...)
- Removing and cleaning graphics card, nothing.
- Attempting to detect the monitor via NVIDIA Control Panel, nothing.

Its a weird problem. It has been working fine for over a year and little bit more. Suddenly the monitor lost input signal, and went to sleep, while the computer is still running. The monitor hasnt gain signal even if i restarted. It keeps sleeping, because it doesnt have any input signal. Also when i leave it on it suddenly gets signal an has display for a few secs or min, then loses it again. What could be the problem? If it never had happen before. What should i do or any recommendations, Suggestions?

Update your video card drivers from the manufactures site. If you cannot get to that point, unplug your power and video card cord from the back of your computer, then hold in your power button for a minute. This will suck up the remaining electricity. Then of course plug it all back in. If this works still make sure to update your drivers\windows update.

I have a ~1 year old LCD monitor (HP f2105) that decided to suddenly stop working on my computer. My computer is on and running, but the monitor will only display "no input signal" and then goes into sleep mode. At the time it went out I was just browsing the internet - hadn't installed any new software or hardware recently or had not made changes to any settings or resolution.

To confirm whether or not it was a computer or a monitor problem I tried hooking up my old CRT and it does work, but interestingly only when I hook it up through the DVI port using a DVI-to-VGA converter. The LCD monitor will not work through either port and neither monitor will work through the VGA port.

I've tried using new cables but it didn't make a difference. I've installed the latest drivers for the monitor and for the video card (Nvidia GeForce 7500 LE) but again it didn't make a difference. I've also confirmed that the LCD monitor is still functional by hooking it up to another computer that only has a VGA port and it worked fine.

At this point I'm not sure what to do. Nothing appears to be wrong with the video card - I opened the case and it's seated properly, free of dust, fan working, no burning smell, etc.

Anyone have any ideas?

I keep getting random no input signal messages on my monitor at various times. Normally a re-start fixes it though but it's still a massive pain. I can sometimes hear my programmes/music still running whilst i get this message. Sometimes un-plugging the monitor cable and re-plugging it has worked. I've recently bought a brand new cable and it still persists. Also i've updated from windows xp 32 bit to windows 7 64 bit and i still get the exact same problem. I just noticed my cpu temp is 68 degrees which is really high so maybe it's that? Sometimes when it's stopped my pc will start up and just short or cut out after a few seconds and keep restarting. This is just proving a massive problem really. The latest thing is that it seems that as long as i'm using the pc it's fine!? The second i leave it alone or i'm watching a film or something it can cut out. Normally when it tries to cut to a screen saver or something, even though i don't have a screen saver set. It's just a bit odd really. Any suggestions are welcome, thank you guys.

A:No Input Signal message on my monitor

The things that first came to mind were the following:
- Your monitor is dying.
- Video card is too hot.
- Video card is dying.
Possible Solution:
- Try hooking your tower up to another monitor and see if the problem persists.
- Leave side panel open for a test run with a low powered fan cooling the video card (externally).
- Moving your tower to a more open space where cooling will become more efficient.

This morning I came in to use my computer, only to find that it was already on. However, the monitor displayed a 'no signal input' message. Thinking this was a bit strange, I unplugged the monitor and plugged it back in, only to find the same message. So I turned the computer off manually and restarted it, but the monitor still displayed 'no signal input'. The computer itself was making an odd clicking noise, and that little light shaped like a cylinder was blinking... so I plugged in another monitor we had, but that one displayed 'no signal' as well. I found out that someone had put the computer in standby when I had come in, which is presumably why the monitor wasn't working. But I don't know why it isn't working now. Any ideas what the problem is?

You might try unplugging the computer or remove the cmos battery for a few minutes
and see if the computer will reset. The clicking noise doesn't sound good, but you can

Hello, I've been building my first computer and I've finally gotten everything all hooked up properly. I checked that everything is plugged in(some things weren't, problem still persisted after fixing). Basically I turn on the computer for the first time), with the bare minimum things plugged in. It turns on fine, fans and stuff start running. The monitor is also getting power.

What happens is that the monitor just gets a no input signal-going to sleep message and goes to sleep. I have the OS disk in, and hit delete on the keyboard like im supposed to(confirmed keyboard is working). Not sure what to do in this situation.

Another thing, on my now previous computer if you dident press anything/click mouse the monitor just gives the same message and goes to sleep until you do so. Currently the mouse cannot be used to click (it does work, it flashes every now and then).

If you want to know what kinds of parts I have just ask. Any suggestions on what the problem is or what I can do?

I've just built a new computer with Windows 7 and a gigabyte brand radeon HD4890 and have been having the same issue as some other users with regard to the over/underscan.

I managed to correct the inch or so of unfilled space when displaying the desktop by using the under/overscan utility in CCC (thanks to info on this forum ^_^) but found that the problem still exists when I ran my first full-screen applications.

I installed, updated, and ran Spore: Galactic Adventures to take a look at how my system was going to handle everything, but found that the dreaded inch was back. The really odd thing was that when I switched Spore to windowed mode, the inch had gone and I could maximise to full-screen. Of course, the window header and taskbar kind of detract from the game, but this isn't necessarily an issue for Spore (which can hardly be described as immersive).

I am, however, concerned that this issue may pop up in other games where the window header and taskbar will detract from the game (if it operates well in windowed mode at all).

I plan on investigating further later today, possibly in the direction of motherboard and chipset drivers, but also testing with other games. Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on what could be going wrong here.


A:HDMI Input not filling monitor in applications

See if the tv itself has an underscan/overscan setting.

If so, use that and don't use any overscan in CCC at all.

As for the monitor problem, you may need to reseat the graphics card. To do that you will need to power off the machine, remove the power and other cables from the back. It's advisable to wear an anti-static wristband in order to protect your hardware from electrostatic damage. Then remove the graphics card and reseat, making sure you take care not to force it back in the slot.

A:How can I input video signal to my laptop monitor?

Welcome to TechSpot forums

It is unlikely that the laptop's video capability has a video in connection. So unfortunately I doubt this is a possibility. One of my workmates does have a USB tv card device which feeds a TV signal into the computer and this works with a laptop (aerial connects to device, device connected via USB connection to laptop).

Something like the devices for sale from this website would be required:

If you post details of the laptop model we will be able to confirm whether it does or does not have a video in capability.

This started when my monitor began to have scribbly swiggly lines and then windows would crash, followed with a BSOD (attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed) with a 0x00000116 stop code, and nvlddmkm.sys.
Every time I logged to windows, this would happen again within 10-20 minutes.
I tried updating my nvidia driver, no luck. Tried reverting back to an older nvidia driver, no luck. Same thing happens.
Boots into safe mode, no problem, but eventually even safe mode began showing swiggly lines in the background, but it doesn’t crash, and I could still navigate everything fine. So I backed up everything there. Due to problems of getting the safe mode prompt to come up, I ended up making it boot to safe mode by default from the control panels boot option.
I decided to disconnect and reconnect my video card, and also ram, dust out the insides, reconnecting everything to see if it helps. And install display driver uninstaller if I was able to boot back in to wipe out any residual drivers if that might be the cause.
However, after I reconnecting everything, the computer now won’t even boot or POST. It doesn’t beep when I turn it on. It powers on fine, all the fans spin. PSU, CPU and video card fan works.

It's the ram.
Try with just one stick and if that doesn't work, try it in another slot.
If you have contact cleaner or alcohol to clean the contacts, both on the ram itself and the slots, that'll be worth it's weight in gold.
Naturally, there's always a chance that it's something else that is not properly seated, so you can check the GPU and the main 24 pin connector to the mobo.

I have recently hooked up two Samsung Syncmaster 2243s to my HP Compaq laptop at work (waiting on an email for the specific model for the Compaq and Nvidia Quadro video card). Unfortunately, the second monitor says "Check Signal Cable" and will not display anything. Here's how I have it set up:

The first monitor is hooked up to the laptop on the VGA port and works fine. I have used extended display with my laptop screen and Syncmaster with no trouble. I hooked up the second monitor to the HDMI port in my laptop with a DVI-HDMI cable. At no point (eg. when restarting) does the monitor show anything but "Check Signal Cable".

I have updated my drivers (windows and Nvidia) and tried removing my display adapter and restarting, forcing the computer to reinstall the drivers. I have rebooted with the second monitor attached and unatatched with no luck.

The key point is that the computer recognizes the second monitor (with the Nvidia control panel I can turn off the laptop screen and set both monitors as my extended display - second monitor still says no signal although the first monitor, which works, behaves as if it were part of an extended monitor). Further, the second monitor works normally, as it was used on a previous laptop via VGA. What could cause the "no signal cable"? I did buy a second DVI-HDMI cable with the same result. Any help would be most appreciated.

A:Second monitor HDMI no signal

typically, dual monitors is not done with VGA, or if so, is implemented using a 'Y' cable.

A video card built to support dual video out is usually DVI with Y or two DVI ports on the card.

Hello, this technically could be combined/should be posted in my other topic, but this is an urgent need..

If you read my other topic about my monitor tinting, it is indeed my monitor, not my video card, not my power supply, and nothing to do with the computer itself. But, right now my monitor is fine to use other than the tinting.. I will be replacing the monitor with another monitor in the VERY near future. The only problem is that I tested the monitor on Windows XP and it worked fine on the computer with Windows XP (the one I'm writing this from) except the fact that it's also tinting on XP. This monitor says "Works With Windows Vista". It's an Acer x193w LCD monitor. I believe it's 20" or something close to that. I thought the monitor would have no problem from going to Vista -> XP - > Vista, but apparently something changed in the monitor that isn't allowing my computer with Vista to use it again. There are two slots on my new computer, one lower and one that makes the cord attach sideways, the bottom slot when attaching the monitor cord says "Input Not Supported", which means I'm guessing this is the right slot, as I do not remember which slot I originally used it on, and then the other slot says "No Signal".

A:Unplugged Monitor From Computer, Now No Signal/Input Not Supported.

If its a resolution issue you need to try and boot into safe mode. Do you get anything onscreen at start up or does it go immeadiately into unsupported mode?

I've never tried to get into Vista safe mode so I don't know, is it still done by tapping the F8 key or the F5 to get the boot menu? Anyway, once booted into safe mode you will be able to see the screen and reset the resolution to a supported one if that is the problem.

This started when my monitor began to have scribbly swiggly lines and then windows would crash, followed with a BSOD (attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed) with a 0x00000116 stop code, and nvlddmkm.sys.

Every time I logged to windows, this would happen again within 10-20 minutes.
I tried updating my nvidia driver, no luck. Tried reverting back to an older nvidia driver, no luck. Same thing happens.

Boots into safe mode, no problem, but eventually even safe mode began showing swiggly lines in the background, but it doesn’t crash, and I could still navigate everything fine. So I backed up everything there. Due to problems of getting the safe mode prompt to come up, I ended up making it boot to safe mode by default from the control panels boot option.

I decided to disconnect and reconnect my video card, and also ram, dust out the insides, reconnecting everything to see if it helps. And install display driver uninstaller if I was able to boot back in to wipe out any residual drivers if that might be the cause.

However, after I reconnecting everything, the computer now won’t even boot or POST. It doesn’t beep when I turn it on. It powers on fine, all the fans spin. PSU, CPU and video card fan works. My monitor has no input signal and goes to standby. Mouse and keyboard connected. Tested my monitor in two other computers, it works fine. Temperature indicator on my case are all normal.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Replace with a known good part (or use integrated graphics if you have it) at a time and see what happens.

Hey everyone,

I recently did a clean install of Windows XP on a relatively old PC. It was working fine for a week, but suddenly a few days ago I was not able to start up normally (the beginning couple startup screens had odd stippling and the text were offset slightly-kind of hard to explain exactly what it looked like). When it got to the Windows loading screen, it would hiccup for a second, a fan in my case (the video card fan I think) would rev up, and then the screen would go black, at which point the message INPUT SIGNAL OUT OF RANGE would show up and I would be forced to restart.

I can start the computer fine in safemode, though I cannot change any monitor settings (can't change resolution) and when I go to settings -> advanced -> monitor the "properties" option there is grayed out and it says Default Monitor and for the refresh rate I can only choose Use hardware default setting.

I then checked the device manager only to find that there was no monitor tab there. I sense for whatever reason that it's just not detecting my monitor, and that's what is causing the problem. I've installed the latest video drivers as well as motherboard drivers (I believe).

My motherboard is a GA-965-DS3 rev. 1.0
My graphics card is an MSI GeForce 8800 GTS 512mb
My monitor is a Hanns-G HW191D

Any help will be very much appreciated! Using only safemode is a pain.

I've just put together my 1st comp with one of my friends who has built several. After connecting my finished computer to my monitor, and turning the power on, my monitor just reads no signal! i have tried using two different monitors, and i have tried using the onboard video as well as my video card. can anyone help me fix this?

A:No Input Signal on my monitor after jsut building my computer

What happens when you power on? Does the system start up? Does it make any sounds at all? Do you hear the CPU fan going?

Any of that info would really help the people here solve your problem

Depending on how recent your system is, you may have a P4 power connector on your motherboard, or an 8 pin version of it (no idea what the 8 pin version is called, maybe one of the gurus can help you here). Most motherboards won't post if this isn't plugged in. Sometimes you'll even have a situation where your power supply only has a P4 connector, but your motherboard needs the 8 pin version. If this is the case for you, read you motherboard manual and it'll tell you if you need to plug the P4 into the 8 pin socket, or if you need to buy an adapter. Luckily for me, my friend's machine was able to support a P4 in the 8 pin slot.

EDIT: OH! And make 100% sure you aren't plugging the main ATX 4 pin into the P4 connector. That will mess you up good I think! The main ATX 4 pin should be connected with the main 20 pin, so you shouldn't have this problem, but just make sure!

Hopefully that wasn't hard to understand. I'm just a beginner here myself. Hopefully this info is useful to you in some way. I know how stressful it is when you get a new machine that won't POST!

Monitors goes to sleep and screen turns off, monitor lights goes from blue to amber-yellow. The only way I can use my computer is in safe mode with networking. My system is 3 yrs old, what caused it suddenly to stop working? I tried loading updates from this sight, but none of the normal things update or load in safe mode. I also tried resetting monitor in safe mode, once I try to go back to regular mode, it resets back to 640 x 480-59hz automatically. In safe mode there is not a 1920x1080 mode, so I set it to 1024x768 as my instructions says but still resets itself back in regular mode to 640x480-59hz. I need my computer for work, also cannot do system restore to an earlier point in safe mode. Please help me...

I have a suggestion, Kenneth. I know you're being assisted by an expert, but if you will, I might have a method since your card is an NVIDIA. Right click your desktop > go to Nvidia control panel > from here find on the left panel the menu option "Change resolution" > and note what resolution is highlighted in the panel under the "resolution" heading.If the resolution is lower than 1920x1080, try changing it to your desired resolution and see what happens. [Side Note] You may also want to check the documentation of your display to verify that it is capable of native 1080p and not an "upscaled" 1080i. Many monitors were labeled this way a few years back with a native resolution of 720p. If this is not the case for you, we are likely experiencing a driver and/or hardware issue. Try using another wire for your display. Many new games and home video are HDCP certified and require an HDMI cable for proper HD playback. This isn't always true, but it won't hurt to try. If your drivers are updated, your monitor has no issues and your 660 is in good standing, we can try setting a custom resolution within the Nvidia Control Panel. To do this just navigate to the Nvidia control panel I described earlier, but now hit the menu option labeled "adjust desktop size and position" Use the values you see in the image above for each field. Also note at the bottom what resolution is displayed here as your current orientation.  From here go to ... Read more

Just finished building a new PC for my mates brother, all components seemed to be secure.
I turn on the PC with just the power cable in YAY! it turns on, so i think this is too good to be true, it turns on first time! I unplug it take it upstairs to my monitor, plug in my monitor into the AGP card i installed in it (Nvidia 5600XT) then booted it back up. The monitor stays on standby, no signal input sign floating round the sreen. AHA the motherboard has onboard graphics, maybe it defaults to that? I remove the AGP card, plug the monitors cable into the VGA socket on the motherboard, boot it back up! Still nothing!!!
I presumed that because the fan comes on, CD drive and HDD that the processor is intalled right. So then I reset the CMOS (normally solves most things in my case lol) boot it back up, and still i got nothing. The monitor and the Cable work fine, and the AGP card is fine to as my friend used it in his other PC before giving it to me! Motherboard is brand new, and i had the same model before, (just without the onboard graphics) Memory is also intalled right, i checked twice!

For the love of god help me!
Could it be something to do with the Hard drive??

Hi All,

I just set-up my new Asus computer with an Asus monitor. It seemed like a straight-forward task. I hooked up both the VGA and HDMI cables to the nVIDIA graphics card slot in the back of the tower.

I keeping getting this message "VGA No Signal". I tested the VGA cable by using it on my old computer. It works fine. I used my old cable on the new monitor and same message.

If I remove the HDMI cable from the graphic card slot the monitor works! I figured once I had Windows 7 set-up it would take the HDMI cable but no such luck.

Is there something wrong with this new monitor, the graphic card slot or I just missed something.

Also, I find the system is very slow to start-up even though the computer is much more powerful than my six year old computer.

Thanks, ms

All has been running perfectly for 3 months.

The setting has been set on "duplicate screen".

Yesterday, rather than turn off the projector's power as normal I simply clicked windows-P and selected "PC screen only"

My monitor immediately went black and said "VGA no signal".

Since then I can use the computer as normal when the HDMI cable is not connected but as soon as I connect the HDMI cable I get a black screen on my monitor. The screen shows on the projector as expected but the monitor screen is black.

My monitor only works when the HDMI cable to the projector is unplugged from the back of the desktop.

I have no idea how to get both screen working again,

Hi there. For some reason all of a sudden, when plugging in my external display as usual using HDMI, not only did the external display not display anything (the message 'Power Saving Mode On' came up and the screen goes on standby) I was then left with just the internal monitor which was heavily distorted and everything was overlayed by a grid of small squares. I tried unplugging the monitor, reconnecting the HDMI, restarting my laptop with the cable attatched and then without, all to no avail. The only thing that I found to work was when I reconnected the HDMI cable (with the external still blank) I managed to get onto the Display > Screen Resolution screen and chose 'Duplicate these displays' option which has made my internal monitor work again but I still get no joy whatsoever from my external and when I unplug the HDMI, the internal monitor flicks blank and then reverts to being heavily distorted again.

2. Put the graphics card from the old machine into the new one. How do I do this and does anyone have any diagrams?
3. Swap the hard drives so that I use the old box with the new monitor. (this is probably a stupid idea, but who knows).

Then one morning i turn on my PC, and my monitor displays "no signal" with a black background. So i try using the VGA cord and poof! It works! But when i switch back to the HDMI the same thing as before happens.
I conclude that i needed a new Graphics Card.
So i go ahead and buy the nVidia Geforce GTX 650 2G.
It came in this morning and i installed in onto the PC. I figure out that the output from this Graphics Card is mini-HDMI so i buy a mini-HDMI to HDMI cable.
Guess what happens???

I revert back to the VGA cord and poof! It magically works!
I have gone all over the web searching for solutions. NONE!!!
I rolled back the driver, system restored, changed the resolution, changed the cable, and still i get no result.
So i decided to try it on a different monitor.

Every once in a while it will correct itself and be fine for a day or two, then it goes pink again. I've replaced cords and plugs.

Any ideas?

I'm trying to decide between the G90FB 19" or the P95F+B...
Here are the links:

The only real difference between the 2 is the fact the Professional one (P95F+B) has an aperture grille while the Gaming (G90FB) has a shadow mask

I know the shadow mask uses dots (dot pitch) while the aperture grille uses lines instead of dots...

Which monitor will give me the best picture for gaming and crisp clear text.

A:Which is the better Viewsonic monitor?

If you can afford it I'd get the Professional version. I had Philips 107P (Professional) monitor with a .25 Aperture grille and it was the best monitor as far as picture quality/clairity I've ever seen (I'm sure there are better, but not without paying major money).

I run XP on a new box and a fairly new 19" (year old) View Sonic LCD monitor. The monitor worked as advertised on my old PC but when attached to my new one I frequently get a flashing green power indicator light and will get no picture.

This happens 100% of the time if I cold start the PC and I have to screw around with the restart button and on/off power button to get it to come back to life and in truth I do not know which combination of button pushing gets it to come back. I now use the power saver mode because that seems to be the most consistent way of bringing the monitor back to life but even that didn't work this am.

ViewSonic's web site wasn't much help.

I have a ViewSonic 19" CRT monitor (bought new in '99) connected to a PC that runs Win XP SP2, 512 MB RAM, Matrox Millenium AGP card.

The system ran fine until I moved it (carefully) to another room. The CPU boots but the monitor does not give any video. I get a black screen with a repetetive blue area that indicates no signal. The specific line entry is "No Synch". I think I may have seen this in the past, when the monitor was powered on but the CPU was shut off. I can't be certain it's the exact same condition.

I switched cables and tried a different video card but no luck. I don't have another monitor other than my laptop. I think I can hook it up to act as a monitor but not certain. Can't afford to crash the laptop.

Any suggestions?

My Viewsonic LCD monitor flashes on and off depending on what I am viewing. I can view pages in any program that has writing or a small number of small pictures without too much trouble. A web page with lots of pictures or the desktop and screen saver are the worst. The monitor flashes off so much on these last pages that I can barely see the page long enough to move the mouse and open a program or expand one from the start bar. I have checked cables, changed power cord, and checked video card drivers. Viewsonic website was no help. Anyone with any ideas?

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Do you happen to know if you are operating the monitor at or beyond its normal operating range for resolution and refresh rates?

Do you get a stable image if you start Windows with a lower resolution in Safe mode?

In the future, it would help us to help you if you give more details like the model number of the monitor and how it is connected to the computer. The TSG reporting utility program does not produce an exhaustive and detailed report about all of the hardware related to your computer.

It sounds like the vertical deflection is gone. Try the monitor on a different computer or a different monitor on yours to see where the problem is. If the monitor is bad its better to bury a new one than to pay to have it repaired. New monitors are pretty cheap now.

My 2nd attempt to get some help off the forums

A few days ago, I tried loading up Warcraft 3, a game, and the screen went black, with the light flashing on and off. If I alt tabbed out of WC3 the screen turned back on. The problem persisted after a restarted, so I left it for a while. A few hours later I tried and W3 worked fine, no problems.

However today I turn on my PC and after a few seconds during the boot up, the screen goes blank with the flashing on and off light again. I restart it and it goes blank even faster.
After a while on the forums (on my GFs laptop) I try pressing F8 before the screen goes blank, and then press ESC for the 'default' Boot option. It goes on to boot up normally, with screen errors. I test out warcraft 3, (since when I first saw this it was whilst starting up this program) and it works fine, and goes on to do so for a few hours, till I turn the screen off and on to see if the problem is permanently fixed. It hasn't, the screen goes black.
Upon restarting my PC I get the same error as before, Pressing F8 and Esc doesn't fix it anymore. However now after pressing Esc I get to the screen where they ask me if I would like to Boot up in Safe mode. I do so and it loads up in safe mode fine.
Later on I try again to get it to load in normal mode, it does first time. Then upon loading Warcraft 3 again, the screen goes black again, with the flashing light. Again rebooting results in the same black screen a few seconds into loading... Read more

I am running Vista Home Prem.I use an 8800 GTS EVGA.I have the latest drivers for my 8800. I run 2 Viewsonic monitors. One is a VG900b and is fine. I also run a VX2235 digital monitor. Both monitors are listed in device manager by model. I manually installed drivers directly off of the discs.I have also downloaded Viewsonic's monitor drivers. I can't get my 22" to go to it's native resolution of 1680x1050.I have had these installed for a long time and working fine. When I ran a hard disc error check that is listed under tools under properties of my computer it erased my 22" and it's capabilities to operate @ native resolution. Another difference is that before I manually installed the VX2235, it was listed as a 'non plug and play monitor' under device manager. I have never seen that before. Does anyone know how to fix this? I am this close to going out and buying a new XP Pro disc.

I have a Viewsonic VA721 monitor that I was using up until earlier today when the monitor started acting like a scrambled cable tv channel when turned on.

I was wondering if anyone might happen to know as to what might cause that, what the technical term for it might be and as to whether or not it can be fixed.

Up until today I have never had any problems with the monitor. Every time I would walk away from the computer for a while I would shut the monitor off so that I could avoid any burn in problems with it thereby preserving the life of the monitor. Because of that I have never had any problems with it until today and at the moment I do not know what could be causing the problem.

I tried the monitor on two different computers with two different cables and got the same result. I bought the monitor in 2006 brand new and up until today it has served me faithfully without any problems.

I don't know if it can be fixed or even if it is worth it nor do I know if it is something that I can fix myself or if I would have to have someone else fix it.

What I do know is if there is anything that I can do to fix the problem myself and restore it to active service then I might choose to give it a try.

Until I have more answers though I cannot make an informed decision about any of it and that is why I am asking.

I just replaced a 1280x1024 Viewsonic monitor, that had gone bad, with another one (Viewsonic VA708).

Though I've never really been one to pay "hard hard" attention to how things look on a monitor - never felt a problem with anything - something just looks/feels "off" with this one.

This is most noticeable to me on the titles appearing on the browser tabs in Firefox. They just look "wrong" - watery maybe to my eye.

BUT... I have attached a screenshot comparing a blowup of a browser tab from my work computer Dell 1280x1024 monitor (top) and my new Viewsonic monitor (bottom), blown up to 1000 px wide (I cropped), and in the blowup, I can't tell the difference.

So why might I be perceiving things differently with this new monitor?

FWIW, I did update the driver from the Viewsonic site, and I also played with both the monitor's and the control panel's display adjustments.

Hi everyone,

I have a headset with mic on it and a motherboard with onboard sound (including a mic input).

When I plug my mic in to use for gaming, Windows does not appear to be recognising the input from the mic.

If I speak into the mic I can hear it coming out the speakers perfectly fine so the mic itself is working, as is the port on the soundcard. However when I go to something like the Sound Recorder and start recording and speaking, windows doesn't pick up anything that is being said.

Any ideas on what might be causing this?

Ii's probably this. Boot into safe mode (tap F8 on boot up), and set the resolution to 60-65Hz. Then reboot as usual. The new monitor probably cant handle the res it is set at now.

Just upgraded to Win7 64bit. My trusty old monitor has no sound (the picture is fine) I found a driver for a generic Viewsonic x64 driver, but that didn't solve the problem. I read a suggestion somewhere to uninstall the driver and let Windows find it. That didn't solve the problem either. I tested the monitor with my old (XP) system, in case the monitor developed a sudden fault, but there is still sound when I plug it back in there.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. I really don't fancy having to buy a new monitor too, after having had to replace my printer and scanner

What does the monitor require? Older monitors, that use VGA or DVI usually have a Jack to connect from the PC's Speaker out (GREEN) to the monitor for sound. No driver is required for that. There is no audio in a VGA or DVI connection, just video.

Just the other day, I re-installed Vista 64 and had been happily using a x64 monitor driver for my VX2025WM, just before the re-install I decided to trall the net for latest drivers and deleted any old ones I had (stupid I know). Anyway on re-install with the latest unsigned driver - Standard_Monitor_Driver_Unsigned_Windows_x64 - Dated 04/10/2007, it is now telling me it cannot find my monitor. I've also tried the latest signed driver and this is not working either. I have tried a manual install from C:\Viewsonic and funny enough the monitor isn't even listed. I've asked Viewsonic for help with them replying asking me to download the latest unsigned driver (what the???) All I need is a copy of the previous unsigned driver to this one listed and I know 101% it will find my monitor and work, does anyone have it or know where I can find archived drivers, as Viewsonic have not responded to this request.

Hello guys,

So one night when I left my computer on, i wake up at 3AM on a rainy night and i notice my entire room flashing (like from a tv in dark room). I thought I was having a rolling blackout, but as I got to my senses I noticed that my monitor was the only thing turning off and on. I turned it off, and went to sleep. The next morning I went to go turn on my computer and the monitor does the same thing. It turns (about a one to two second delay between each) until I turn the monitor off. The LED light is green. It goes from green, to off, to green, etc. I've had no prior problems with this monitor.

I tried switching out the power cord and plugging it into my wall (not connected to my video card, or anything) luck. It's definately the monitor. I don't know if it's dead or repairable or what. I often leave the computer on over night but i have a 10 minute screensaver and my monitor goes on standby after 20 minutes. When i fell asleep, my monitor was on standby (yellow LED). When I woke up it was the green turning on and off. Doesn't make much sense.

They all look similar, but I'm just not sure which one to get. I'm leaning toward the HP 27xi though, but this site rated the AOC i2757fh a little higher over the HP 27xi. I'd like to hear some feedback from you guys.

My main usage is playing games like BF3/BF4, SWTOR and Titanfall when it comes out. I also do a lot of web surfing and occasional movie watcher on this monitor. My current monitor is a 24 inch Asus VW246H and I like it, but I don't love it. So my main concern is how well it displays games. I don't want any ghosting and the least amount of input lag I can find. Now, I know the AOC boasts a slightly quicker response time of 5ms vs the HP's 7 seconds, but the reviews I've read thus far state there is no visual lag from the HP. What do you guys suggest?

My monitor seems to be experiencing some kind of problem.

The best way I can describe it is as a 'widescreen' mode. There is a black bar on the top and bottom of the desktop about 1 inch wide and extending across the entire length of the screen. I cannot move the mouse into this portion of the screen.

When adjusting the horizontal and vertical settings, 100% stops with the 1 inch black bars still in place. I cannot seem to make the desktop fit the screen. It seems to have shifted into some other mode of viewing.

I called Viewsonic tech support, but they didn't really know much else to do besides checking my settings. I am at 1024 x 768 resoloution, Radeon 8500 64MB graphics card, Windows XP and have installed the most recent drivers. Even when booting - the black bars are present, as if the monitor has somehow decided that is the mode it wants to be in.

If anyone has come across something like this before or knows how I might be able to fix it, I'd be MUCH obliged!

one of my problems is that the looks of the tft is very important to me, cos i cant look at something ugly all the time, i would like a tft which is slim and very sexy (just how i like my women )

If anybody owns either of these screens i would really appreciate their feedback, on how good the monitor is and if they would recommend it.

Never mind, as quick as the problem began, it's resolved itself for some reason. Post can be deleted.

I'm having a bit of a strange issue with my ViewSonic VX2258 monitor.
Out of nowhere, the screen started to flicker (not the sort of flickering you might expect from a loose cable, but literally going completely off and back on) every few seconds. Eventually the screen did not come back on at all.
Thinking there was a loose cable, I tried tightening them but to no avail. The light on the monitor is still blue showing that it is detecting an input and Windows still detects that the monitor is plugged in.
When I turn the monitor off and on, I can see the ViewSonic logo, but oddly enough after that it is a black screen and I am unable to get any system menus to appear (the ones that are generated by the monitor itself, not the PC) or change the source. I would have thought that because of this, there is something wrong with the display but that doesn't seem to be the case considering I can see the logo upon starting the monitor. (Perhaps something to do with firmware?)
I don't think that it is a problem with my GPU as my secondary monitor (a Samsung SyncMaster) still seems to be functioning perfectly but just in case, it is a Powercolor Radeon R9 290X and my drivers are all up to date.

In the last several months only once did the PC recognize the TV and I was able to switch the video out from my PC monitor to my large flat screen.

Any ideas? Anything I can do to get my PC to recognize the television with a bit more consistency?


A:PC Not Recognizing TV via HDMI

I would start with a new cable. Get a decent DVI > HDMI cable (ie: no adapter).
