HDMI No Signal on ASUS Monitor (Just DO This!)

If your ASUS monitor shows a No Signal or HDMI No Signal error message, it mostly happens because you selected the incorrect input source, the HDMI port is faulty, a glitch or the cable is not working properly.

This guide will help you fix the No Signal error on your ASUS monitor and get it working in no time.

Select The Right Input Source

Before doing anything else, the first thing to do is to ensure you select the correct input source in the settings.

Many ASUS monitors comes with multiple HDMI ports. For example, if you connected the HDMI cable to port number 1 and selected port number 2 as the input source in settings, the No HDMI Signal error will pop up on the screen.

Follow the steps below to set the correct input source on your ASUS monitor.

Press the Menu button.

Select the Input option.

Select HDMI and ensure you select the right port.

Turn off and unplug your ASUS monitor.

Press and hold the power button on the monitor for at least 10 to 20 seconds to release piled-up static charges.

Clean The HDMI Port & Cable

Is the HDMI cable properly connected? Is the cable frayed, or is dust or dirt blocking the HDMI port?

Unplug the cable from the HDMI port.

Use a lint-free microfiber cleaning cloth or an earbud to gently clean the HDMI port.

Similarly, clean the HDMI port.

Look at the HDMI cable and make sure the cable is not frayed or damaged. Plug the HDMI cable and apply firm pressure to lock it in place.

An outdated graphics driver can cause HDMI-related problems, especially if you use the monitor as a second screen. Follow the steps below to update the graphics driver right away.

Press Win Key + R to open Run, type devmgmt.msc and hit enter. Or open Windows search and search for Device Manager and open it up.
