Need some help with a no signal monitor
Hello, this is my first time posting in this part of the forums so I'm not really sure if this belongs here. Anyway, I have a problem with my monitor saying "no signal" when I boot up my PC, everything else turns on except the display for my monitor.
After restarting the PC a few times I finally get a display and everything works perfectly fine but I'd still like to hear some tips on what could be causing the problem.
Also, I'm not really that knowledgeable with computers but I did some research and from what I can tell I think the cables connecting my PC and monitor are fine.
I don't think it's my video card either because I can play games just fine without anything happening.
Furthermore, if it helps, the problem always happens when I have to turn my PC on and then off
If anyone could give me some ideas on what could be wrong it would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. Here are some of my specs just in case
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
CPU: Inter Core i3 (2.93GHz)
Video Card: PowerColor Radeon HD 6770 PCS+ Vortex II
Monitor: not sure what it's called but it's a generic LCD tv my dad bought on sale
P.P.S. The fans on my PC have been broken for quite some time (a year at least) and I haven't been able to replace them due to a lack of cash. I've been relying on the built in fans of my hardware and I'm thinking the sub-par cooling on my PC has finally caught up to me ehehe
