The most obvious way to tell is to swap out the monitor. If the new one works, the old one probably has a problem.
When you say "is not coming up" I assume you never see a thing on it. I would ask--do you hear the system beep once indicating that it has passed the POST? If not (and it always did), then I would suspect that since it hasn't passed its own diagnostics, you will never get a signal on the monitor.
I suggest disconnecting everything on the computer but the video, memory, and CPU (you can leave the mouse and keyboard connected).
If the system starts and displays something (most likely you will see a message indication no boot device), then you can assume you have a problem with a piece of the hardware.
Also, if you hear a series of beeps, they will help you troubleshoot.

My HP Monitor not displaying home computer

It could be your port to your computer that went bad. If you have a graphics card for you computer that could have gone bad. It also could be the monitor port. If the port went bad on either side it will usually say something on the screen about it not having a connection to the port.

It also could be the backlight for the monitor . Sometimes you can tell if the backlight went bad if you turn on the computer and shine a flashlight at the screen. If you see an image then the backlight is bad.

Tahoe speedomoter abs break light on

More than likely you have a bad speed sensor on the transmission. If that goes bad it will make the needle bounce and give you false readings. The brake system sees this information and tells the computer something is wrong. The ABS system has monitors on all four wheels that measure wheel speed. Also at worst if your cluster is bad it will do the same thing. Start with the easiest less expensive part. There are tests you can run too but you will need a service manual. Good Luck.

Got 1994 lexus both a battery hook it up and come to find out it was wrong battery . Now the car wont start did find some bad fuses i change it still wont start. Could be my promlem is the car compute

Wrong battery? What was wrong, voltage, size, terminal location. I am not familar with a Lexus does it have two batteries? If you hooked up two batteries and did something wrong, like hook them in series some way then you could have fried the computer. It is really hard to determine what problem you have. The bad fuses should tell you something what did they run? Please rate my answer.

When plugged into my PC, this monitor tells me "Out of Range."

It can be failure inside the monitor, but try it with another PC first.
The possibilty can be poor DC in the power supply which will be the first thing to check or failed EPROM which nothing you can do unless you have the way to reprogram it.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses; poor solder joints, 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.

The picture board on your monitor is faulty or bad, since it goes black after few minutes, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board or any service center because the fault is not something you can fix yourself. in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

2004 jeep grand cherokee emission pump and hoses going bad which is causing the check engine light to come on. This wa told to me by a service center. Any potential truth to this?

it is possible, there are sensors that monitor the flow, and report accordingly to the PCM. if the emission pump is going bad, yes that will make the engine light come on, but it doesnt take long for those things to just go out at all. as far as it making the hoses go bad.....unless you have a ridiculous amount of pressure coming out (which you cant) then there is no way the hose could go bad, because the only things it could do would be to either get so hot, it melts, or the hose just blows out.

pump going bad? maybe....hose going bad because of the pump? no. use a diagnostic tester on the jeep and look at the trouble codes. because if you want to know whats wrong with the vehicle, ask it.

Green light is flashing and screen won't come on

Try another monitor on that computer and see if it boots up with video. If you still get the same problem then that means there is something wrong with the computer. If you get video this time then that means there is something wrong with the original monitor.

On your original monitor, make sure there is no bent pins and that the cable is connected properly.

At least this way you will know whether its the computer or monitor.

If its the computer thats the problem that at least go ahead and try to take out the memory and CPU and put them back into there respective slots and blow some air onto them so its not a spec of dust or dirt that is affecting the video.

Listen for the number of beeps, when you turn on the pc. The beep code should be able to tell you what is wrong. It's possible that the power supply or the video card is bad.
