A number of things can cause this. Incorrect BIOS settings, cable problems, a faulty monitor or problems with your video card.

1) If you can change the monitor cable - do so
If it worked, great else - carry on....
2) If you have two monitor inputs on your computer swap the connection to another input, only if it is on another card. If it worked great, else carry on.....
3) Try a different monitor to see if the same thing occurrs... if it does then it is either video card or BIOS
4) Reboot your computer and watch the screen - it will tell you to pres a key to enter BIOS or setup - do so.
Switch of cacheing of Video RAM
and Disable ACPI settings - all power and green energy settings. If that does not do the trick then it is most likely your video card - or your monitor... borrow a monitor and video card for ten minutes and you will find out which is the problem

My computer monitor wont start up


try pulling out the power plug to the monitor and then plug back in and turn on monitor.
I am assuming you plugged the DVI cable back in to the correct port on the monitor and Mac Pro.

check for the source if connected, the vga cable if properly hooked up to the port. if ok then still display wont come on, unplug the monitor and then locate the power supply board of the monitor and look for a bulging electrolytic capacitor which is common problem of lcd monitors.

Computer monitor wont turn on when you hold the power button a small orange light turns on. What is wrong?!


CONNECT THE MONITOR DIRECTLY TO THE WALL OUTLET
CHECK WHETHER YOU GET CHECK AUDI SIGNAL OR NOT OR ANY MESSAGE---HTEN CHECK FOR THE CABLE---IF STILL THE ISSUE PERSISTS CHECK IT WITH A DIFFERENT CABLE---
THEN CONNECT IT TO THE COMPUTER MAKE IT SURE THE COMPUTER IS TURNED ON AND THE POWER IS GIVEN TO THE MONITOR AS WELL----CHECK THE COMPUTER WITH ANOTHER MONITOR---IF THE OTHER MONITOR IS WORKING FINE THEN CONNECT YOUR MONITOR TURN IT ON AND THEN FLASH A FLASH LIGHT OR TORCH LIGHT AND THEN SEE IF YOU CAN SEE A DISPLAY INSIDE..
WHILE CHECKING FOR ALL THESE STEPS YOUR ISSUE WILL BE RESOLVED IF NOT TYOU GOTTA CONTACT THE MANUFACTURER FOR A FAULTY MONTIOR---

STEPS IN BRIEF:
DO A MONITOR SELF TEST
CHECK FOR THE LIGHTS
CHECK FOR THE CABLE
CHECK FOR THE PHYSICAL SIGNAL
PUT THE MONTIOR ON A DIFFERENT COMPUTER AND CHECK
CONNECT THE COMPUTER WITH A DIFFERENT MONITOR AND CHECK
FLASH A FLASH LIGHT AS A LAST STEP TO SEE A DISPLAY
IF THE ISSUE IS NOT RESLOVED THE MONITOR IS FAULTY..
HAVE A NICE DAY!!!!

Dell monitor e17s fbp.. wont turn on


Flashing power LED light means you may have shorted (Emitter to Collector) out transistors (c5707) or bad fuse (fuse has high resistance) PF751. Those are what you need to check. see pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/Dell%20E173FPb/

Flashing green light


http://www.xerox-displays.com/drivers.html
This is the link to the xerox install info. This should fix the problem. If it does not please list the CPU OS and video card you have. Before connecting the LCD monitor make sure in your display properties are set to a refresh rate of 60 hertz. You can set refresh rate by going to the control panel in windows and display settings properties.

Laptop wont turn on


Are there any noises like its attempting to start up? Any beeping, fans running? If there are and the activitity lights are flashing, but just the monitor is off, than I would definatly say there is probably a bad connection between the motherboard, and monitor.
