"No Signal" message on monitor/tv screen

by brenda035 / October 19, 2008 2:19 AM PDT

The computer: Compaq Presario Media Center SR2030NX Desktop PC. Base processor is Athlon 64 (O) 3800+ 2.4 GHz--2000 MT/s (mega transfers/second--Socket AM2. Asus Motherboard A8M2N-LA. 1GB memory. 200 GB SATA Hard Drive. Integrated graphics. Chipset : GeForce 6150 LE.

The monitor: Magnavox 15" LCD TV--model #15MF400T/37. A 15 Pin Male to Male D-Sub cable connects the PC to the monitor.

The problem: Turned computer on and all I get is a 'no signal' message on the screen. The tv is working fine--yes, the 1st thing I did was check that the source button was set to PC. And so far I have also tried---clearing the CMOS by removing the battery & switching the pins from 2,3 to 1,2. Replaced the vga cable. Reseated the memory sticks. Swapped the power supply. Reseated the hard drive---and probably some other stuff that I just cant recall right now. There are NO error or beep codes coming from the computer and it powers on just fine---except---the CPU fan seems to be running alot faster and it makes a louder whirring kind of sound.

Suggestions please---ANY help at all at this point will be greatly appreciated. And thanks in advance.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
