Check the cables, make sure it is secure on both ends. Also see if you pull up the Monitors on screen menu.

As long as the light is green, that means there is a signal. it could be a bad monitor. Shut off all the lights in the room, then grab a Flashlight and hold it against the LCD screen while it boots into windows. Can you see the desktop now, but very dimm? If you can see the desktop, then connect Your PC to another monitor (if u have one or a friends, perhaps) and boot it up, can you see the desktop on the other monitor fine?, then we just ruled out a Bad video card and narrowed it down to either a Bad Inverter in the Screen or LCD back light issue.

probally not worth fixing, because replacement LCD's arent cheap. nowadays at the right sale you can buy a Brand new LCD monitor for as little as $199


good luck,

You either have a hardware problem with your video card. ( may have pop out of socket when you plug in the monitor) or the cable is not allow communication to the monitor. As long as the amber light comes on you know you have power so focud on data cables and hardware.

Powering up problems.


Try using another monitor that you know works. Then try another video card. The fans are running because the computer is running ---but the monitor is not. Green to Amber means monitor is not on.
A lot can go wrong with loose wires that shouldn't be loose.
But I would try this first.

LCD monitor comes on for 1-2 seconds and then screen goes dark (power light stays on - green). Turn monitor off and back on and same result.


It sounds like you could have either a faulty VGA cable (slim chance) or a faulty graphics processor.

Try using a different cable from a friend.

Good luck!

Black screen not booting


check both your power and video connections to the monitor, sounds more like a monitor power issue.
if the connections appear ok, but screen still blank, try connecting a known good working monitor from somewhere else and see if it works with your pc, if it does, your original monitor is faulty, if it doesn't, you have a pc video issue.
