Question about Computers & Internet
What if you only connect the non-working monitor after disconnecting the other?
I would suspect the Video card, if both the monitors have similar connectors, eg DVI/HDMI, the first connect the dead monitor on the working port or vice versa. That'll reveal the truth. If it's working, then the problem is with your Graphics card, you'll need to replace it.
If it's not working then, hook it up on another computer. I hope it has multiple ports, if so switch the ports, suppose if you are connecting it through the DVI port then try VGA or HDMI or the other way.
(First of all, try to find out the culprit and start troubleshooting)
Let me know if you need further help.
Thanks for using FixYa.
