Nothing on the Monitor


Nothing on the Monitor



As we first mentioned, check the brightness and contrast buttons on the monitor to be sure
they are not turned down. Yeah,we know. This sounds a little silly to think this could be
overlooked,but believe me, it really does.
And while we're talking about simple checks,be sure the monitor is receiving power. If the
power indicator light is out, remove the power cable and look for any bent or broken pins
or connectors.
Try to reboot the computer one or two times to be sure the system did not just lock up. If
nothing happens, replace the cable with a known good cable to prove that the wall outlet or
surge protector has power.

If the monitor has power but nothing is on the screen, check the data cable going into the
rear of the computer. Be sure the cable is secure. If it is,Turn the power off to the system
unit, remove the cable and look for broken, loose, or bent pins.
Finally, if you're blessed enough to have two computers, exchange the monitor with a good
monitor to see if it works. Replace the old monitor if the new monitor works. If the new
monitor fail as well, remove the system cover to inspect the Video Card.
