Monitor says "No video Input, monitor going to sleep"

  1. Okay so I was surfing the net with my pc. I was bored. So I decided to clean my pc's insides with vacuum cleaner. I did it. Then I tried to turn my pc on, my monitor showed me "No video Input, monitor going to sleep"
    I tried my monitor with different PC, it worked. So it's not the monitor that is a problem. I checked my motherboard light, it's nice bright green. No beeps.
    What is the issue? May I have moved some cables with the vacuum cleaner? or did I swallow something? Please help :)

    You may have caused a static charge to the video chip. This may have burn the chip out

    Buy an air can for future use because this could be an expensive mistake.

    Thank you very much for your interest in helping me!
    Unfortunately, this is solved ^^. All I did was unplug my pc's insides and plug em again.
    Again, thanks! <3

    I think you mean "Fortunately, this is solved." Cobalt006 is probably correct and the vacuum cleaner caused a static issue. You have had a close escape.
    Cobalt006 and Tmagic650 like this.
