I seem to have a problem. MB lights are fine. Heatsink heats up, so it seems the processor is fine.
All fans are working fine in the case, processor and graphic card.

I just cannot workout why there is no signal to the monitor.

Any help would be fine.

Have you tried to connect the cpu to another monitor or the present monitor to another CPU ?

Have you checked your cabling ?

Checked cables. Power lights on the mb is fine. Heatsink warms up, not sure what is the issue.

I will repeat my question:

0

Didn't find the answer you are looking for?

Ask a question
I don't have another monitor. Same monitor

I understand the problem.

Try to press alt+ctrl+del and see if you get anything, if not read the following. (tell me if alt+ctrl+del works.

There are three main reasons why someone would not get a signal on the monitor:

1, Faulty graphic card
2. Faulty cabling
3. Fried monitor

Once the cabling had been checked and found to be working, the only way to find out if it's the graphic card or the monitor is to either connect to another monitor or test another graphic card.

Alt+ctrl+del keeps resetting. Now the front external light is not working.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

You say that alt+ctrl+del keeps resetting, you saw this on the screen ?
0
No, the monitor screen stays off. I do alt+ctrl+del. When the mouse + keyboard light comes on.

Okay that means that the task manager did not come on the screen.

You either have a monitor or graphic card issue, both of which cannot be fixed here online. You must test your graphic card with another monitor or your monitor with another CPU. My educated guess is that your monitor decided to retire from this cruel world.

Sorry I can help you further.

Monitor is fine just connected to the laptop. Tried both the onboard graphics and the atx 6870. Card. Monitor stays off.

Monitor work fine. Tested with my laptop. Tried onboard graphics & my graphic cards neither will activate the monitor on.

The funny thing is all mb light works. All fan s work. Heatsink warms up.

From your description, if that is the case, I can only come to the conclusion that the CPU has a graphic card issue.

If thats the issue how do I fix it?

You must replace the graphic card with one which will meet your system's specifications. Where they sell them should guide you with the choice as there some more powerful than others, it all depends what for what purpose you use your CPU.

P.S. I assume that the inside of your CPU is free of dust which can only be cleaned with compressed air not a vacuum.

The graphics card is the one I've used before the issue happens.
