My computer screen got unplugged
Chances are the video cable has come loose. You will need to locate where that has happened and figure out if you need to securely plug it back in, replace a cable, etc. You may find it handy to have a flashlight, if you can't fully get behind your computer, etc.
Normally, there are two cables from the monitor ("screen") to the computer. One is power, which you likely know what that looks like (a regular power plug, going to the wall) and the other will be for the video from the monitor to the computer.
Modern computers typically have color coded ends on the cables with color coding on where they plug on to the back of the computer, etc. This is especially true if you purchased the monitor as a set with the computer.
Typically power cables are black.
Follow each cable from the monitor to it's respective location. Follow power cable from monitor to wall or where you have it plugged in.
Video cables can be in five different styles typically (oldest to newest):
(VGA: blue, DVI: white, HDMI: black, Display Port: black, Mini-Display Port: black)
Follow the second cable, the video cable, from the monitor to where it should plug in on the back of the computer.
Make sure each is securely plugged in to where it needs to go and is hand tight snug, but not too tightly screwed on at each end.
