Question about PC Desktops
Make sure that your monitor is plugged into mains and that it is switched on. If the monitor is on you can see a "orange" light bottom left on the screen. If it comes on with a "No signal" on your screen, then you know that the screen is working. If the light is green, you know that your PC and monitor are "communicating".
You can also check if the cable from the screen (blue connector 15pin male) is connected to the correct VGA port at the back of your pc. Sometimes pc have 2 or 3 VGA ports meaning they have an onboard VGA, and a additional installed graphics card.
If you suspect the mon to be dead, then try the monitor on a different machine. In this way you can distinguish if the monitor is dead or your PC.
