Hi, my monitor is giving me this message "No signal recieved" any tips on what the problem might be. I know the monitor is ok so the problem might lie with the cpu

did you put in a new video card if so make sure you have the extra power cable plugged into the card
next I would see if the hard drive is working to try and rule that out

Could be a bad monitor cable or a video card problem.Make sure the cable is screwed tightto the back of the computer. If it is just plugged in you could have a bad connection.

Unplug the computer, open the cover, and reseat the video card (pull it out a bit, then make sure it fits snugly in its slot). If dusty, blow it out with compressed air. Someone brought me a computer just last week with the exact same symptom description (they had tried 2 monitors) and it turned out to be a loose video card. If that doesn't work and you can hear the hard drive whirring, I'd suspect the video card has gone bad, which can happen without warning.

Good luck.
