Happens quite often to me also. My best guess for you is plug the monitor into the other jack it fits into. It will work with a reset. Also make sure that all cords are tightly plugged in.

Computer powers up, but monitor shows a self test


Your video output is bad. Either the video card, or the onboard video built into the computer. You need to swap out the card or add a card to bypass the built in video port on your computer.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Computer not booting up


Could be one of two things:

1. Signal cable from monitor isn't hooked up. (either monitor end or computer case end)

2. Video card in the computer is damaged and not putting out signal. This is unlikely though as usually this will trip the motherboard into beeping when you turn the computer is turned on.
