    Hiya all,

    I just recently purchased a new monitor about a month ago a ACER S242HL LCD monitor (24") and all is working well in Windows 7 but sometimes when you switch the PC on nothing displays on the monitor (the power light is still amber) and when you press the power button off and then on all you get is a blue light come on and a box appear saying "no signal".

    If you switch the PC off and on again after a few moments the light goes blue and you see bios, windows etc and everything is fine.

    At first I thought it's my PC (even though I just got a new graphics card, replaced fans etc), I thought it was RAM causing problems for the computer to boot up, but when the monitor didn't display again I left it on with the speakers turned up and I heard the windows 7 login music, so the PC is booting up but for some reason the monitor is acting like there is no signal.

    I am using a DVI cable at the moment.

    Thanks

    Can you try a cable or monitor, to see what is faulty.

    I can try and find another cable to use, the thing is it doesn't happen all the time. Sometimes it switches on fine and then randomly now and again it will say no signal.
