Computer monitor issues
 
If I sound ignorant, I am. Should have taken computer courses as an elective.


Here's the skinny, I turn the HP monitor on and get a black screen that says "No VGA input/No DVI input" and the monitor puts itself to sleep.

Video cables fine, everythings plugged up and its got a surge protector. From what I've gathered it could need a new video card. This is not my computer :(

Another possibility, what I hope it is, that the motherboard is dusty and overheating. Could it cause that? I could unplug everything and blow it out with air, but because I'm nervous with anything post-1950 I wonder if there is any other options that don't involve taking apart someone elses computer.

Bonus points if there are any tips for not F-ing up the process, besides drawing myself a diagram of how everything is put together. Thanks for putting up with me.

I'm not an expert, but you could try this...

Hope you figure it out bud!

Really freaking tempting. Might use it on myself too.

Does it have multiple VGA ports? If you're trying to hook it up the VGA port that is on the motherboard and they have a video card, you can disable the onboard video.

Just a thought.

What language is that?

Seriously though, I may have to get somebody out here tomorrow :(

Unplug the monitor, look at the piece you plugged it into. If there are others that look exactly like that, try that one.
