    LCD type? If you want to DIY repair please read below. Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

It is possible that your monitor is on a GFI switch. These switches turn off if they detect a problem that could incur a shock, or if they are getting worn. Check if there is a power outlet in the same room with a red and black switch. If so, push the reset switch, typically the red one.

Your monitor may also be on a switch activated outlet. Is it plugged into the top outlet? See if a wall switch nearby controls the outlet. then try turning on your monitor.

Is the surge protector your monitor is plugged into turned on?

Check the cord on the back of your monitor. It is possible it may be loose. Plug it in all the way.

Some Viewsonic monitors have a power pack that is not inside the monitor case. Check the wiring between it and the wall and between the pack and the monitor for frays.

Motherboard will not start, believe it is bad capacitors, how di I DIAGNOSE THEM?

Bro, you can't fix bad capacitors on your mb. If it's under warranty then give your computer/mb manufacturer a call. Otherwise you gotta get a new one. FYI if you get a different model your os may have issues with it. If you have windows 7 you should be ok.

My lil bro Computer wont relay any video

You have done a lot of the basic maintenance steps. You might want to try and reseat the CPU. Sometimes they "creep out of their sockets because to the heat. Also, check to make sure the CPU fan is running if you are sure the power supply works. Without a fan, the CPU can overheat and produce your symptoms. Hope this helps.

Over idling

Hey bro, throttle cable stuck, see if the carb mechanism is closed. Sometimes when you gun it it'll stick open. Get access to the carb and see if it is open or closed. If open then it is stuck, figure out if it is the cable or the carb mechanism that is caught and lube it. If the carb is closed you might have an air leak causing it to run lean but if this were the case it's rev high, but not red-line high. Cheers bro.
