What could be wrong if my HP computer is not sending anything to my HP monitor?

HP Recommended
HP m7260n media center pentium 3Ghz computer
Microsoft Windows XP

Monitor sometimes displays a "check cables" after it always displays "no signal".  I am using the same mouse,  keyboard monitor and microsoft XP that I was using when I replaced it all when support ceased for XP.

You would have to try the following to isolate the issue:

1) Replace the video cable -- if the problem continues, it's not the cable

2) Replace the monitor with a different one -- if the new monitor does not work, it's likely the video chip (or video card, if you have a separate video card)

3) Use this monitor on a different PC -- if it still displays the error message, then the monitor is going bad
