When I turn my PC on I get the message "No Input Signal" on the monitor. Also, I don't hear the normal boot up sounds from my PC such as the beeps, etc. Could my BIOS or Motherboard be dead? Or what?
TIA, Tkd2frek1

Hi Tkd2frek1 and welcome to TSG.

There is probably not going to be an easy answer to this one, but don't panic just yet.
The fast that you are not hearing start-up sounds from you PC suggests its not a monitor fault (try to connect it to another PC to confirm this).
Your first line of attack should be to ensure that all leads and connections are firmly in place.

Start with the external ones, just for good measure, particularly between Monitor and CPU, but then progress, if necessary, to the internals.
Check all the add-in boards, particularly the video card, are tight and firmly set in their sockets. Remove and re-seat them if necessary. The video card is the first prime suspect.
Check your memory chips in the same way.
Try a power-up at various stages through this process to see if any changes occur - please don't eloctrocute yourself so take ALL the usual precautions, particularly grounding the chassis after each power off.

Last in the line is going to be the motherboard. If you have got to this stage - and it might not happen - and found no cure, it could mean a board failure and replacement might be your only option.

HOWEVER, do not jump to conclusions and take one step at a time. Wait a while to see what others have to say on this subject and, in any case, keep posting back with any problems or anxieties you might have.
