Question about AMD eMachines Desktop System w/ 17'' CRT Display, 2.0 GHz Athlon 64 3000+ (W3400)
My LCD monitor suddenly decided to quit working. There is power at the AC adaptor (green light is on) but nothing happens when I push the power button on the monitor.
This could be one of three components:
1. The video card
2. Video Cable (cable from the monitor to the computer)
3. The Monitor
The way I would determine this is:
I would try to plug this monitor into another computer that you know works with other monitor. If this is a home computer and you don't have another computer to test this take it to a friends house. Use a different cable to connect the to computer and power if possible. Then switch out to the old hardware (e.g. power cable, video cable.) If all has been determined to work then it's probably the video card.
If you can do this at all I would suggest trying a new video cable they are cheap. Usually 10 bucks at the most or borrow on from someone else. If this is a DVI cable they are a little more expensive. VGA cables look like this btw http://www.networktechinc.com/cable-pc.html
