Solved How can I get my PC to recognize my monitor?

January 1, 2015 at 16:43:39
Specs: Windows 7
I recently bought a custom-built gaming desktop computer, and I cannot get anything to show up on my HP f2105 monitor. I can hear the fans inside the computer working fine, and everything is plugged in correctly, but the only thing that shows up on my monitor is "no signal". Is there any way to fix this?

Also, my disk drive won't open. The light near it is completely dark, and I'm not sure if it's supposed to be like this until it's properly set up or not.

I bought my computer from and the specs are:
AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz (4.1GHz turbo) Six-Core
8GB(2x4GB) DDR3 System Memory, 1TB Hard Drive Storage Space
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Radeon 7770 1GB Video Card (with DVI/HDMI/VGA)

✔ Best Answer
Did it ever work?

No signal is possibly graphic card failure but this doesn't account for the disk drive not opening (it should without any setting up).

It it is under warranty then the best bet would be to send it back. Almost certainly you would need to look inside and they could neatly wriggle out of covering it.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

No, it never worked. I'm going to try contacting the seller and returning it tomorrow. I have a warranty on it. Thanks for replying to my question!

Hi Azelff, is it possible the monitor is being connected to the wrong socket?

There may be a socket on the mobe *AND* one on a add on graphics card.

Have you tried the monitor on another pc to prove it works.

Possibly light on disk drive only is on when drive is being used/accessed. Maybe it flashes when pc is starting.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.
