No sign of life from the display half but the bottom reads life.
If you have already checked the connections from the screen to the PC, check that you have a power light on the screen. (Green or Amber). If no light, check power to screen. If it is amber, then the screen is not getting a signal from the PC - recheck connections. I would suggest you try and connect the pc to a different monitor to check whether it is the screen or the PC.
If it is the same on another Monitor or if the power button is green on the screen, then the pc is not sending information properly. Turn the pc off manually by holding the power button on the bottom half for about 10 seconds. All lights should go off from it. Now turn it back on again and see what happens.
If you see loading windows and then goes black, do the following:
Turn off the pc (bottom half). Turn back on and as soon as you pressed the button to turn on, start tapping the F8 key until you come to "Windows Advanced options" screen. use the arrow keys and go to Enable VGA mode. Press the return key twice. If it loads to windows, then fine. If not, then you may have a problem with the display adapter.
Hope that helps
