    I got an old desktop out of storage today and when I went to turn it on there was nothing showing up on my monitor. Its a HP Pavilion A6210z. I checked the chord and monitor using my laptop and they both work. All the monitor reads is no vga signal and then sleeps. Computer seems to be running fine, all the fans working and all the lights are on. Any help would be much appreciated.

    It was introduced in September 2007 in the U.S.A. and Canada.
    Because it was a Custom-To-Order model, it came with one of these operating systems and one of these graphic devices:

    Does your have only integrated graphics or does it also have a graphic card?
    If it has both, is the monitor connected to the correct port?

    It has windows Vista, but I cant remember which one. I'm not sure which graphics card it is. How do I know if it has integrated graphics? It says Nvidia N1996 on the card that's in it. It is plugged into the vga which goes into the motherboard, I've never used the dvi that goes straight into the video card so it's the same port I've always used. Heres a couple pics of the graphics card.

    The HP part number 5189-0684 in your second image

    is associated with a NVIDIA GeForce 7500LE 256 MB graphic card.

    Yours appears to have only a DVI port(white).

    The motherboard panel in that desktop should have a VGA port(blue).

    If the cable to your monitor has a VGA connector, you have 1 of 2 options:
    1. Remove the graphic card and connect the monitor to the motherboard's VGA port.
    2. Connect the appropriate DVD-to-VGA adapter to the graphic card and then connect the monitor to it,
