Blank Screen, power light is steady green

I have a 17" samsung LCD monitor model 170s which does not show anything. The power led is steady green. I checked the cable is OK. I tried monitor with other computers and no luck. It looks like an electronic part is not good. Any help or hint would be appreciated.

Monitor Not Showing A Picture. Light flashes Yellow and Green.

use the onboard graphics instead of a seperate graphics card (if installed) to test the screen.if it still doesn't work then unplug your monitor from the mains supply and plug in again to reset it. i doubt it's your monitor that is the problem though. but look on the back of your pc for another connection for your screen. the onboard graphics connection is normally vertical near your ethernet port and mouse and keyboard inputs.

please rate me and give me a fixya! if it helped.

Samsung Syncmaster 710n no display and no LED light

The power button should be on the FRONT BOTTOM RIGHT. and there should be a little led/light next to it. make sure everything is plugged in correctly and press the power button, the led should light up, and then boot your computer.
