Question about Computer Monitors
I'm so glad I use dual monitors sometimes. When I turned on my computer this morning my Starlogic monitor didn't power on. It has no light on for power at all. The AC adapter for it is showing a green light and I've tried it in multiple outlets. I've reseated my graphics card and tried my secondary monitor in both ports and that works just fine. I'm really hoping my monitor isn't dead. I'm not sure when else I can try. I've rebooted numerous times and the power light doesn't even flicker. I've checked the connection between the adapter and the monitor and its snug not loose at all. Unfortunately I do not have another device I can test with this adapter, but since it's own power light is active im assuming it's working properly. Any ideas guys?
I have the same problem on my optiquest q7.help

Its likely that the diode that acts like fuse in the monitor has crapped out, If thats not the case then you may have a burnt out power supply.
