No signal on my desktop [Solved]

Ask a question Harry Cooper - Last answered on Apr 24, 2017 at 03:40 PM by BrianGreen
hello, I have recently moved my computer in to a different building along with my router and have contacted BT, the Wi-Fi has been set up in the building and is working, because my laptop is working, but my computer is not working. It displays no signal when the fans are working and the monitor seems to work and turn on. I have tried the trick where you unplug the power cord and press down on the on switch for 1/2 min-a min, and have unplugged all the parts of the computers and plugged them in again. I have been trying to solve the issue for the past couple of hours and it would be nice if one of you kind people could help me fix the issue. Is the information not been sent to the computer or what?

Hi Harry,

Occationally there are 2 or more graphics card sockets on a machine. If this is the case with your machine try using another graphics output socket (the one that goes from your monitor to your PC.

It might be worth checking if the cable is both plugged in at both ends, and not damaged.

Good luck.
