    Hey, so I bought an HP w2007 monitor from a thrift store, and it keeps saying VGA Input and DVI input with No input signal, along with check video cable.

    Im not sure how to fix it and im new to fixing computers as well as these issues.

    Im honestly not sure if I bought something thats fried or not working. It was cheap too.

    Any advice will be helpful, thank you.

    The HP w2007 20" LCD Monitor has the choice of using a blue VGA port or a white DVI-D port to connect it to a desktop computer.

    Which one of those 2 ports are you using?

    Did you confirm that monitor was working before you purchased it and brought it home?

    What do you expect a monitor to do when it has no inputs? Don't you have a device for which you want the monitor to be the display?

    If your laptop has either of those ports (the output version) and you have the proper video cable you can use the monitor as an external display.

    Sorry, I have another question. If I bought a desktop, can I hook it up to the monitor? If so, how do I do it? Thank you

    What's the brand name and model name and model number of your laptop?
    Which Windows version(XP, Vista, 7, 8.1, 10) is it running?

    Am I correct in assuming you've never owned and set up and used a desktop computer system?

    Yes, assuming it has a VGA or a DVI-D port or an HDMI port.

    Depending on the computer port and monitor port you use connect the appropriate cable and, if necessary, adapter.

    For example, you might use an HDMI (output) to DVI (input) cable (your laptop may have an HDMI port).

    If your laptop is a HP brand, it will have a model number(M/N) and product number(P/N) and serial number(S/N).
    Check the labels on the bottom of the case or inside the battery compartment.

    Once it's correctly identified, we should be able to determine which type of video ports it has.
    We also should be able to locate its support site which should show you how to use it with an external monitor.

    Did you buy thinking it was a complete computer , like an all-in-1 , do you want to spend more money on creating a desktop computer with using that as a monitor.
    I would take it back to the thrift shop and maybe give them 10% it its a charity - unless you really have a need for it.
    New and refurbished Monitors are also available very cheaply maybe have a look at amazon - not sure what country you are in , but have a search at monitors and measure the diagonal size of the screen should be 20" , that will allow you to compare
    Its not a great monitor going by the reviews and does not have a HDMI input.

    Maybe worth rethinking before you spend a lot of time and money on something you purchased that is not what you actuslly thought you were buying
