I have a really weird problem with a computer and a monitor: One day I was on the computer and all of a sudden screen goes black, I get check input/signal. I do all the normal stuff- reseat VGA card, make sure cord is secure (I even bought a new cord), I reset CMOS memory- all to no avail. I then plug the computer into another monitor and it works. "Okay, it's the monitor then" I think. I plug that monitor into another computer and I get the same error; this of course backs up my thinking. Then however I plugged the computer (Which I had just found to be working fine) into a brand new monitor and I get the same error...Anyone ever experience anything like this?

Did you delete the old monitor from device manager and did windows pick up the new one when powered for the first time ?

No I didn't do that...I've never had to do that before when switching monitors. But I guess it wouldn't hurt to try.

I just recently had the same problem. Check the capacitors on the motherboard. My pc would power up and the monitor would say to check connections or that there was no computer attached to the monitor. The motherboard was fried.

I had a similar issue and as cap2361 found it was leaking capacitors, the problem started as intermittent then permanent.
