No Signal On Monitor


I have an old HP monitor, flat screen, I can't locate the disk required to operate the device. It is a HP w1907 flat screen that I purchased about 8-9 year ago. Plugged in in and it comes on for about 2 seconds and I think the screen says, "no signal".


You actually should not need the disk the drivers would load automatically. The no signal error means there is a hardware problem. Connect it to a different computer and see if it does the same thing. If it does try changing the cable connecting it to the computer.

If it worked properly on the other computer it means the graphics card in your computer is failing and needs to be replaced. If it did not work on the other computer even after changing the cable it normally means the main board in the monitor is failing and needs to be replaced.

If you do not have another computer or monitor to test with I suggest bringing the monitor to a local pc shop. A smaller local one as ask them if they can test it for you. Normally they will connect it to another computer for you and see if it turns on for free. (somewhere like best buy or staples most likely will not do this it would need to be a small shop).
