When you plug in the monitor no lights come on at all green, orange nothing ?
Try
1. Using a new power cord ( maybe something is wrong with it)
2. Plugging it into a new socket on the wall.

If you can't get power to the monitor at all you may be in for buying a new one.

Monitor screen begins as computer is booting up and then screen goes black. Message says there is no signal.


If the power light dims or changes color after the no signal message comes up, that means the monitor went to sleep.
While the monitor is plugged in and on and the computer is also on, Try unplugging the VGA cable from the monitor. wait 30 seconds and then plug it back in o see if the power button light comes back to normal color and the screen flashes on.
If not, then the monitor is not getting a signal from the computer.
If using a desktop computer,Try a different cord or try the monitor on another computer.
If using a laptop, you need to activate the laptop to use an external monitor. That can be done through the display settings, OR, most laptops have a shortcut key feature which usually involves pushing the Fn key and one of the F keys at the same time. The F key may say CRT/lcd or have a picture of a monitor and a screen.
If the power light does light back up and still no picture, There may be an internal issue on the monitor

Black monitor


Power light coming on and sound effects when you plug it in but no lighting of the screen is usually caused by the power inverter board having gone bad. Once in a while it is a bad bulb.

Black Screen


If you have a picture on your desktop and nothing on your external,With external screen plugged in check the output set up on display properties,may need to be set up again.
Once the screens are identified you should be able to save these settings and remember to set the correct screen size or you may experience Black screen syndrome were your video picture should be displayed,if in doubt start at the smallest (800x600) and work from there adjusting to suit the individual requirements.

Don't for get to save before reboot then test,

No Signal


You have to use the FN key and F5 to change between the LCD screen and the external monitor. It may be F8 also, depending on the laptop model.

Look on the F keys for a little picture of a monitor.

Once you have found it, hold the FN key and tap the F key and it should switch to the external monitor.

If a monitor shows a normal screen at startup but goes bad after the Windows logo disappears, your Windows video setting is probably not compatible with the monitor. You can start Windows in safe mode to select a compatible resolution for your monitor.
