When I start up onea my computers, the moniter goes on, but it only displays a message in a red box.. The message reads:
'No input

Check connector
and computer'

And i've gone over it 5 times... All cables in properly, graphics card in properly, changed graphics card round, same problem, and yeah..

Anyone got an idea what the problem may be?
The main graphics card of the comp is a Voodoo Banshee, it's got an AMD K6 266 processor, 32mb of ram, uh.. yeah

It had this problem once some months ago, but I left it an hour and it worked... no such luck today though...

Thanks for any help / ideas you can offer..

Hey Sorrie bout no model / etc, Na that wasn't my fix, but thanks for the attempt :)

I've figured out it's not the monitor but I guess it's something on the motherboard... so I think I'm gonna have to get me a new mobo =(

monitor works on another comp.
Vid card works on other comp / other vid card has same effect

so what's that leave besides somethin with the motherboard =( doesn't appair to have any dry wires.. hmm anyway maybe i'll get me a new mobo sometime / yeah

Thanks for your help anyway

Monitor brand = KTX Low radiation Colour 15"..
Everything else about it has been sratched / peeled off lol

Can you change any display settings on the monitor or the bios to use a lower refresh rate under 72 for testing purposes?
