usually when you turn a monitor on it will display the company name of that monitor. Then after that it waits for the signal from the computer if there is no signal coming from the computer it usually has to do with the video card
turn it off.
turn it back on.
is the picture of your desktop in the background?
check for a stuck button on the monitor.
if not check signal cable form the computer to the monitor to see if it is loose.
Have you used the Fn button on your laptop and changed the video display Icon on the Blue Function keys. You need to change the display wait a few seconds for it to take affect. There are several modes try them all so you know how to use them.
You have to activate the video out of the laptop.
Two ways to do this depending on how you want to use the monitor.
To use the monitor by itself laptops have shortcut keys.
Usually they involve using the Fn key and one of the F keys (Usually F3-F4-F5) KEy will either show two screens or say CRT-LCD
Pushing both keys at once will switch you to both screens, pushed again
will just run the monito, Pushed again will return you to the laptop
If you want to use the monitor as an extension of the monitor to be
able to drag windos over to it then go to your display properties from
the control panel and activate the monitor in the settings box. You'll
have to click the monitor first then activate it as a extension and
adjust the resolution here.
Stand on your head ??? put the stand on the other end ??
Jus kidding ? Is it a monitor that offers a rotate screen feature ??
Did you buy it used ? almost sounds like the screen is in upside down which is possible but a bit tricky to do.
I agree it isn?t the monitor but I would suspect the video card you are connecting it to or the PC itself. Generally if a monitor doesn?t detect a video signal it will go into hibernation mode, typically displaying a no signal warning and changing the LED color from green to amber.
When you start the computer is anything displaying at all? Are you sure the PC is powering up and booting?
