I have an HP Model 6030 desktop computer. The monitor is not getting power from my tower. The tower power light comes on and stays on. The monitor says: No Signal and goes to sleep in 5 seconds. All cables are connected. I sent a signal to the monitor from my laptop and the monitor works perfectly. Any suggestions would be appreciated. wvinson.

Just to clarify terminology, the display does not receive "power" from the computer, it receives a video signal. Power is supplied by the electrical connection :)


Possible causes of the no signal message include:


1) Bad cable connection at either end (display or computer). Check the connections and make certain they are secure.


2) Bad cable (if you have a spare, try it).


3) Bad display adapter (if you have a second display, try connecting it and see if there is a signal).


These are the three most like causes. Let's see where we are after you do the above troubleshooting.
