Could be you monitor or vga card have gone bad. If you have a known working monitor connect it to your pc & see if it show something. I fit does, your old monitor maybe bad & maybe replaced. If it doesn't show anything, you vga card maybe bad. You can replace the vga card which maybe the culprit.

Have HP slimline series. Came back from a break.


Try another monitor on it to verify it is the video card that has gone bad. If it does not work with another monitor then that is the likely culprit.

I turned on the computer and blank monitor screen.


have you checked if monitor cables are properly seated? have you tried a different known good video cable? also try a different outlet for the power supply for the monitor. lastly, try a different monitor and hook it to your tower. if it has a good display, then you should replace monitor, if still it has same issue, thenyou may want to consider changing your videocard.

If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.
