Every so often my my screen will go black and it will say 'No Signal' then it 'Input not supported' will bounce around the screen. What do I do?

My graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce 6200SE Turbocache if it helps

    Check connections between moniitor and PC. Use the screws on the connectors if not already. Try a different PC to monitor cable.
  • Already using screws connections seem fine, I'll try another cable

    try wiggling the cable at the each end and see if you can make it happen on demand. Basically the monitor is saying it's not connected to the PC so there's a dodgy connection somewhere. It could be in the cable, in the connectors or inside the monitor or graphics card.

    Unplug the cables, blow into each end and plug them back in, otherwise it sounds like you graphics card is overheating, use the pc till it happens then open the case and see if the card is really hot, it could be because the little fan is gone.

    what are you doing when it goes blank? Game playing may overheat the card but just using windows it's barely ticking over.

    I was fiddling with some family member or other's pc, and a similar thing kept happening after about 30 mins to 1 hour just using the web browser. But is was fine at night in a freezing cold conservatory. The little fan's motor had burnt out, they still create heat no matter what.

    LOL, sorry, but that post was more pointless than the pointless post you were complaining about.


    ANYWAY....

    When the screen goes off, what do you do to get it back? Dose rebooting help? Do you just have to wait for a while? If so how long?

    graphics card producing a display setting thats out of range for the monitor to cope with ?
  • Father JackFather Jack Posts: 3,508
    The only time I've seen that problem is with cable disconnected, if the computer crashes it still gets a signal so you don't get on OSD message on the monitor.

    No as usually it'll show a "out of range" message

    you could do with following your own advice!
  • Just a thought, is it a new graphics card? You may need a bit more wattage. I stuck an nvidia card my pc and got similar screen nonsense as yourself. All it needed was a new power unit to cope with the 2 hd's, and graphics card. Try the monitor without the graphics card, thats if your video is integrated into the mobo.

    More than just "wattage" it's the ability of the PSU to provide current. But tbh it sounds like a bad connection somewhere, either on videocard pins/solder points, cable, or perhaps the monitor connector itself. Try using a different video input/output on your videocard & monitor, and/or different cable, try another monitor & videocard last.
