1.first you should test if the monitor work fine with another PC.
if it does: go on to step 2
if not: get a new monitor
get another graphics card (if you have an old one test if it works with this one)
If the problem is still there post here again^^
I would have to disagree with you here. Just because there is the message "NO SIGNAL" doesn't mean that the monitor is broken or that the graphics card doesn't work, do a little more researching BEFORE you try to help somebody here. First off, the signal could mean that the graphics card might not be properly connected with the monitor or that there are problems with the HDD and even the DVD-Rom connections.
The problem could be a number of things, the problem will be in finding the root of the problem:
-Graphics drivers haven't been properly DE-INSTALLED and the new ones NOT PROPERLY installed
-Mainboard problems (a defective motherboard)<-----worst case scenario! If it is the motherboard, buy a new one!
-RAM isn't working properly (take the RAM out and re-insert the modules, otherwise re-insert them differently)
-The connections from the hardware components to the motherboard are not properly "docked" (test and make sure all connections from motherboard to the hardware are correctly connected)
-Inform yourself which components are compatible WITH the motherboard (believe it or not even a power unit can cause problems with a motherboard)
-Last but least, call the support line from Fujitsu Siemens (I hope you still have a warranty on your product otherwise you'll be referred to an expensive hotline!)
Hope this could help somewhat. I had the problem with the "NO SIGNAL" and had to install a whole new motherboard! no regrets though, except that the support from Fujitsu Siemens sucks!
Wish you luck!!
