Solved

No display on monitor when VGA card is installed onto the motherboard!

The problem started when I opened my cabinet last week to clean it up. After that I put my graphics card in its respective slot. I attached the VGA cable of my monitor onto the VGA port of the graphics card. As I switched my PC on, it had no response from the monitor. It was just displaying "no signal input please check video cable". As far as I think I put everything in its respective slots. But when I remove the graphics card and attach the monitor to the inbuilt VGA port, it worked just fine!
Please help/suggest something friends!!!

  1. What's your GPU? I mean its model.What is it? Does it need an external power connector? If it does,are you sure you've supplied it with necessary power? Anyway,the problem appears to be the GPU if the PC works fine when it is removed. Just to make sure your GPU is working,connect everything and without closing the cabinet,see if your GPU is working by looking at its fan.
    Also check out for the RAM. Make sure you've inserted the RAM properly in its slot.

    It is a 512mb nvidia series from palit. I'm afraid I don't remember the model as I bought it around 4years ago. And, the fan of the graphics card rotates just fine. And I believe the ram are in their respective slots as the system works just fine when the graphics card is detached from the mb. And ya, the gpu doesn't require an external power supply :)

    So your GPU must be faulty. Why couldn't you try it on one of your friends' PC just to see if it works fine there. And if it doesn't,then that's it...You've got the problem identified.
