    Hi all, First time here on these forums
    I'm also fairly inexperienced in general with PC hardware so forgive me if this is a simple issue or a post in the wrong forum

    Have had this new monitor for a few weeks which has been working fine up untill last night, Now im stuck with "Check signal cable" (HDMI)

    I have 2 brand new GTX570's and i have tested the connection with both graphics cards and have the same issue, The moniter has a standard VGA cable and im using a DVI converter, all of which are firmly connected, Ive tried removing and reconnecting the cards in different motherboard slots with no success

    I have an old monitor which works just fine with a DVI cable in either graphics card

    Does this mean its an issue with the VGA cable from the new moniter? I dont have a spare to test and want to confirm if there is something else i should try before buying another

    Thanks

    Does the monitor only have VGA? If yes, then how does it display a message regarding HDMI? I would suggest using a cable without adapters.

    The moniter only has VGA and HDMI, but only came with a VGA cable
    Im unsure why it displays HDMI when i have not changed the default settings and was working fine with the VGA cable previously

    The video card has DVI and HDMI so i need the converter

    I might just buy a HDMI cable, More expensive but an easy fix

    I think you have to set it to analogue signal, there should be a button that switches from HDMI to VGA(analogue). Most monitors automatically detect but try switching it manually.

    Without the connection there is no option to change the moniters settings, The only thing i can change is AV to PC, which doesn't do anything

    Doesn't matter anymore I have just picked up a HDMI cable and will use that from now on

    Thanks for all the tips
