No vgi input...monitor goes to sleep

Upon starting up my hp desktop I see the source input menu on the monitor and it states there are no vgi or dvi inputs and then the monitor goes to sleep and I have no screen to work with in order to troubleshoot this issue. Also, according to someone on YouTube, this is a dirty ram issue. So I have tried that fix with no positive outcome. I have also plugged my monitor into a laptop and it works, so it is not the monitor or the cord. What now?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Brent, sounds like your video card is not sending any signal to your monitor. If you use the integrated video card, try a separate video card. There are some issues with the GPU an this model and a reflow of the GPU could resolve it, but try to see what you get when you change the video card. Hope this helps, good luck.
