    Hi there.
    When you first turn the computer on does it display a post/splash screen? or does the machine beep at all?

Make sure your video card is properly seated on the motherboard. Also, it might be a good time to open up your case and blow it out with compressed air. I use an air compressor. Sometimes you need to reseat the hardware. If that doesn't work you might have a faulty video card.

Why did my computer monitor stop showing an image?


Disconnect it from computer and power. wait 15 minutes and plug only the power back in, press the power on button. The monitor may display a message that there is no signal or something like that. If that happens the problem is either the cable or the computer. If you get no message then look for the menu button and press it to see if any thing appears. If not find the manual on line and read it. Many times monitors get over-driven by computers to the point that they can't display OR they self destruct.


OR

Another way is to just unplug everything computer and monitor for 15 minutes. Plug in monitor first then plug in computer and press the power button, the display should display the booting information if the cable is good and the monitor is good.

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.

No pitcure, but the power light is on


My first bet is on a dead power-inverter. Get it replaced if you can still see a very darkened picture. OR... if there's no picture at all, call warranty support or take it to a repair shop. Also, if you're fine with electronics, I can guide you step-by-step to diagnose the fault.

Ensure that the monitor's power plug is properly placed in the back of the monitor. Also be sure that the connection from the monitor to your computer is tight.

Monitor will not light up, black screen.


what is your monitor is it lcd or crt? is the power on indicator of the monitor lights up? which is usually a color green, if it lights up, try to reset the vga cable of your monitor to the video card of your pc and this time do it tightly but not too tight. But if the power on indicator does not light up, the problem lies within your monitor. Have your monitor be check by a professional technician.

ViewSonic VX2235wm monitor looses power ...


I've not seen this problem on a ViewSonic but have on a Dell flat screen. The fix was the obvious one: the power connection on the back of the monitor was loose -- have you checked this. Also if the power cord is too tight it could be the problem. Other then this, it sounds like a short inside the monitor.

Hope this helps

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.
