That means that your monitor isn't recieving a signal from the video card. Check that the monitor cable is plugged in and that nothing is broken. Wiggling the cable is also a good idea.

Re: Check signal cable 80 80

I have a similar problem i checked everything.. How do i know if its the motherboard that has went out?

Re: Check signal cable 80 80

If it is an onboard video card, try putting a seperate card in...if the monitor works, then you know it's not your motherboard and it was your video card that was faulty.
