First, if you have another monitor or a lcd tv with pc component input, try testing that to rule out your computer being faulty. If the computer does display to the tv or another monitor, then we can rule that your monitor is faulty. You can check the power adapter to the monitor (usually a small green dot light that comes on) to see if the light is on or not. If it is on then check connection the monitor, if not, then your power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. Otherwise the monitor is faulty and needs to be replaced with a new one.
There is your answer no power to the monitor. Make sure it is plugged in replace with another monitor if you cannot get the button on the monitor to power on the unit. Maybe time for another monitor. John
Do you mean the monitor's power light starts green and then turns orange when you turn it on? Most monitors will go to a power saving mode when they do not get a signal from the computer.
The Dell GX260 has a green power light when on. When the computer is off, the light is off. If it is green and blinking, then the computer is in a power saving mode.
Diagnosis: start with the obvious: is the monitor cable plugged into both the computer and the monitor (if not permanently connected to the monitor)? Are you connected to the active port? (You can add a video graphics card in most desktops. The motherboard video port usually needs to be disabled to use the card ports. If you plug in the monitor cable to the disabled port, it won't work.) Is the monitor set to the correct input? (This applies if the monitor has several ports. In that case, there will be a Source or Input button on the monitor.) Is the computer on? The GX260 has the power button on the front. (Other computers have the power button on the top.) There is also the power supply switch on the back which needs to be on.
Next try a different data cable between the monitor and the computer (if you can). Try a different monitor. If a second monitor works, than the monitor has a damaged main board. If the second monitor doesn't work, then the video graphics adapter has probably failed. Replace the add-on card, if in use, then boot in the safe mode to remove the old graphics driver. Then install the correct driver for the graphics adapter.
Note: the computer and the monitor should both be off when you connect the cables. Then turn on the monitor first and set it to the correct source before turning on the computer.)
It can be a hard ware or software failure . You need to change cabinet and powersupply of the unit as they maybe damaged and not giving sufficient power. If you want more details please call on +919594761770 - Srikanth firstname.lastname@example.org

Yes that means the computer has failed POST. So yes, something has come loose or has got damaged.
"POST" is an acronym for Power On Self-Test. The POST process checks the basic system functions before attempting to load an operating system. It checks RAM, processor, drives, system interface, etc. If POST fails, the system will normally halt and may produce a series of beeps from the computer speaker which can help indicate the cause of the problem.
