Question: Why Won’t My Computer Connect To My Monitor?

Unplug the cable running from your monitor to your PC and plug it back in, making sure the connection is firm.

If the “No Input Signal” error still appears, the problem does not rest with the cables or the monitor, but with your PC.

  • If the monitor does not work after replacing the cables, replace or service the monitor.
