Plug the monitor into another computer to determine if the monitor is damaged or working properly. You can also plug another monitor into your computer to determine the same thing.

My monitor is a sleep and wont wake up


Hi Mellissa,
I have the same problem at times.
At the top right hand side of your keyborad there may be a half moon button.(THIS IS A SLEEP MODE BUTTON)
Push that button, wait for your computer power light to turn from blue to yellow.
Then lightly touch the power button on your PC, wait a few then tis should fix your issue, I hope.

Montior screen is half shaded and half bright


Do this to check if your monitor is in working state or not...!

Step 1:- Turn on your computer.
Step 2:- Unplug the Video Cable of your monitor which is connected with the computer.

( Video cable:- Cable going from the back of your monitor to the back of your tower. It has a plug with two screws on the plug ends, which you can unscrew to unplug it. Thats how it looks like. Some times it is in grey in color some times in blue.)

Step 3:- Now check on your monitor. If the display says " No Input Signal " :- your monitor is fine. Some thing wrong with the computer graphics.
If there is not display and the monitor light is blinking or solid the monitor has gone bad.

( Note :- Remember when you unplug the video cable do not unplug the power cable of the monitor. )

Let me know if it helps.

Check the display cables , and if you have one test a different monitor on your computer.

If this is not a sceen problem, then it is an internal fault possibly the motherboard.

Try first leaving the PC power cord unplugged for ten, fifteen minutes and check if PC restarts afterwards.

Monitor says no signal


this could be a multitude of things. Firstly, check the connections from your computer to your monitor, unplug them and plug them back in, make sure the thumb screws that connect your monitor to your computer and nice and tight but dont use a tool to tighten them, hand tight is good enough.
If that doesnt work, then check that your graphics car hasnt been unseated from its slot, TURN OFF THE POWER to your pc, open the case and look at the graphics card inside. Push it straight back against the slot and that might help.Try connecting the monitor to another computer, although I dont think its a monitor problem. or borrow a monitor from another computer and try it. If that doesnt help then you can try a different graphics card, if you dont have one they are readily available from most major electorincs stores, or even most supermarkets with an electronics dept. Now if you do all this and it doesnt fix it then you will need to find a tech to have a look at it, Like I said at the beggining it could be a multitude of sins, a hardware error stopping the computer from booting and that requires a little technical knowledge

Power problem


That seems to point to a problem with your video card.  Try taking it out and putting back in.  The power saving mode message comes purely from the monitor and only means it isn't getting a signal.  Also check the connection to the monitor and maybe a different cable.
