monitor no signal

Posted: 01-04-2009, 11:31 AM

Hi,

I just bought a new Desktop with vista operational system.

It was in display in the store, apparently running fine. I bought th
pc and they put in the box.

At home, I installed my monitor, mouse and keyboard.

When I turn on the new PC, I just can see a black screen in th
monitor. Anything else appears at any moment. I have tried with
different monitors and the same problem happens.

Is anything missing in my setup?

Many thanks,
Jorg

Hi,

The video card in the drive tower may have been jarred loose in transport. I
would open the case and reseat it.

Take it back to the store where you bought it from. If its not to
far, take your monitor with you - it may just be a cable problem

Caution!

Opening the case might void the warrantly.

Unlikely, or how would any given user add a card to a pre-built system? I
don't know of any manufacturers that still void warranties just because the
case cover was removed.

Oh

They used to put a seal on the cabinet with a warning label...
I guess they don't do that any more?

Haven't seen one on a new machine since ~Win98. Pretty common prior to that,
but if you think about it, it'd be pretty ludicrous now with add-on cards
and empty memory slots to be filled.
