Re: monitor

Is your monitor connected to any system? beside the power supply? Try to check the connections.. you may need to explain further of the system that you are using....

Monitor problem

The power light is flashing green can indicate start/restart of the power supply due to shorts circuits or failing power supply due to bad caps, look for bad caps with bulging top first, see example of failed monitors due to bad caps:

My Display has nothing showing and the Power Button has a flashing green LED...Can you help?

This usually happens when there is some video resolution conflicts occurs. Try to start windows in safe mode and then making a lowest resolution applied.
If you are unable to start windows. Try removing its data cable from cpu. and check whether there is any display on the screen.
Also check its pins..

Dell monitor blank. nothing appears on screen. light is blinking by minitor power button, but nothing at all on screen. I hooked up to my laptop, still nothing. Checked power/ tried new power cable. No...

Make sure you set up your laptop to display to a second screen. Depending on your Operating system, go to your display properties and go to the settings tab. Then click on the second monitor and enable it.

The screen doesn't display anything and the power button is flashing green

Ok I got the same problem. And this is the way how to examine where the problem is. You have to check that you can see the image on screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons (Power on both cpu and monitor), there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken. If you cannot see any icon on the screen. I would say that there are some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or dark spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.
