Monitor won't get a signal.

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I've never had a issue like this and can't find anything on google like it but here is what happen - I put in a new GPU hooked everything up correctly booted up and the monitor didn't turn on. So I let it set for a bit came back, turned it back on and it detected it booted up as normal then a power surge happened a couple hours later, my keyboard and tiamat 7.1 headset stayed lit even with the PC off. My mouse however didn't. But I tried to boot up and once again doesn't detect monitor but the lights stay lit unless I completely unplug the PC. If I leave it with the lights up and booting the keyboard never comes responsive even with the lights on. It just happens randomly and I want it fixed.

Here are the specs ; 78Q7h.png

Except I have a R7 260x and 1 monitor now.

Does the monitor have Power-Saving features enabled? If so, try disabling them.
Mine often shuts off when booting up, it'll show the BIOS, then turn off before it gets to the "Windows" loading screen, even though it is only seconds between the two.

Some of them are just too aggressive to the point where it can cause some issues. Like mine doesn't turn on instantly when the logo appears, sometimes it'll show after the logo has been on for a moment judging by the progress bar on the loading. Usually starts on the left, but when the monitor turns back on sometimes it's over by the right.

I plugged the GPU in today after not being it for a day and it worked, well I thought hmm why not uninstall drivers and install it's drivers. I shutdown and what do you know it stopped working..A shutdown made it stop working.

Vezryl. If your computer has integrated graphics, connect your monitor to the motherboard and boot that way.

Then, download all necessary display drivers for your card from the manufacturers website.

Then restart and see if it works.

I don't have an integrated graphics slot. I will say though, it has detected it randomly three times now after multiple attempts off unplugging it etc, but each time i shutdown it just completely stopped work, fan still spins just no signal.

Very odd. Do you have another monitor or machine you could test the card with?

Have you tried plugging the cable into the other display port on the GPU? (Assuming it has two, or more)

Since the monitor works fine with the other card, it is probably something wrong with the GPU. If you have the option, get it replaced and see if that solves the problem. It could be faulty, or the card itself may have a design flaw or bad firmware. If it doesn't work with a replacement card, it is likely the card doesn't work well with the monitor and you'd be best off getting a different one entirely.
