Hello to all my favorite computer geniuses! It's been some time but I'm back with another question. A few days ago my monitor's picture would enlarge then retract back to the normal size. Did this twice. Few hours later the monitor went black. Doesn't work at all - however the green light is lit on monitor. So, I borrowed another monitor and found that it worked fine. So, I guess my old monitor is junk? Now I am having trouble with this monitor. When we switch between different accounts and log on a little green and white box comes up on screen and says something like "no video imput" then just shuts down monitor. Will someone please so kind as to tell me what the heck I'm suppose to do other than throw it out the window. I tried to run a search among the discusssion and can't find anything. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. :thumbsup:

Since the other monitor worked fine, it's probably a bad monitor. If you don't want to chuck it out the window - you could use it to make a nice, geeky flower-planter! :thumbsup:

Otherwise I'd suggest taking it to a repair person to see if it's worth saving.

hello usasma- well, I have decided to just buy a new one. After shopping around they are not as expensive as I had thought. I figured the cost of someone looking at it would just about cover the cost of a new one. Thank you for the reply -- and as far as the planter goes I think I'd rather throw it out the window. :thumbsup:

The signal that you are getting no video input, means there is nothing like no signal arriving at the input to the monitor. This could be due to the other monitor biting the bullet and put a big strain on the video card. If your computer has a built in video card thsi could turn into a problem. I would keep an eye on this error and if it keeps happening I would contact the manufacturer of the computer as where to best get your computer serviced by one of their qualified techs.
