I can't spot the exact problem as these type of problems originate from a large variety of hardware and software malfunctioning

but here's the basic procedure:

first basic rule of trouble shooting is to swap the suspected hardware.

1- first of all check the brightness and contrast settings of your monitor. When set to zero can create a similar scenario
if this doesn't work then
2- Swap the monitor with a good working one... borrow it from a friend and test your monitor.
if monitor is not at fault then

3- check the power chord - swap it with a good working one.

if all of the above fails then there is a problem with your display adapter ....
take your pc to a technician and let him examine it.

hope your problem get's solved

Thanks in advance

You need to connect both monitors to a computer. Monitors do not daisy-chain (in general). The exception are some SCART-enabled monitors.

What is your source (desktop)? What is the make/model of your new monitor? Please add a comment with the video outputs/inputs for your source and second monitor.

Many newer desktops have two or three outputs. (Some video cards have display port outputs which with active adapters can support 2 monitors each.)

If your computer has two or more outputs and your new monitor has an input compatible with the extra output, get the appropriate DVI, DVI-HDMI or HDMI cable for your new monitor. See the next section if both monitors have VGA input.

If you have a desktop with only one video output, you may be able add a video card to support two monitors. (Depending on your computer, you may need to upgrade the power supply to support a video card.) Then get the appropriate adapter or cables to add the second monitor. (Note: if both of your monitors have only VGA inputs, check the specs for video cards carefully. Not all modern cards support analog outputs on their DVI, HDMI or Display Port connections. These digital outputs would require a digital to analog converter to give the VGA out.) However, if one of your monitors will accept DVI digital signals and the other VGA, add a card with one of each of these connections and a DVI cable to match. (This is an if needed extra; many monitors still ship with only a VGA cable.)

Then turn off your computer, open it and add the video card. Install the drivers with only one monitor attached. Then power down the computer and connect the second monitor. Turn on both monitors before turning on the computer again. Most of the time, the second monitor should be recognized (by Windows) and the appropriate refresh rate and resolution chosen. If not, you may need to enter the Display settings to set the monitor up.

I have seen some computers/video cards where only one output is initially enabled. You may have to go into the device settings to enable it. (Laptops often need their external video ports enabled in the BIOS.) Bad video ports/cards/cables do happen so RMA if needed.

The USB video adapter, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812225007 , can be added to a desktop to give a second VGA output but it isn't the best solution. USB bandwidth limits are significantly lower than those for a PCIe x16 slot or an old AGP slot.

I hope this helps. Please add more information about your system if you want more assistance with this problem.

(who has done dual monitors with older and newer computers. My old Pentium 4 with a Radeon x1350 video card was fine for driving a VGA monitor and an HDMI monitor (using a DVI to HDMI cable). My second generation i5 and P8Z68 motherboard system is also fine using the on-CPU video graphics for those same monitors. A video card would improve gaming but isn't required.)

Test the PSU if the units fan is not working the power supply unit is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE,SATA

the leads from your "((motherboard to your hard drive))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electric extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error If your computer came with a motherboard disc the drivers could be on it or you might have a dirty graphics card remove the graphics card and clean the socket

hope this helps

Is it possible to try the monitor on another computer? If so try that. I've worked with motherboards that don't give a power up beep code (strange, I know), so after the checking the monitor, I would try removing and re-seating the video card, and memory, one at a time and see what happens. Is the cpu fan running? Check these things out. Is there onboard, integrated video in addition to the graphics card? If so, try using the integrated video port. If the cpu fan is running, and the power led and hard drive leds are working, then it's a safe bet it's not your power supply. It would have to be the video card, in my opinion .

Gateway FPD1760TFT LCD monitor


Problem
1. turn on computer
2. monitor receives signal, it looks like its working
3. it goes through some steps and then the monitor says "no signal" and kind of stays in limbo with fans running, etc.

Solution
One possibility is that computer is looking for drivers for you video card. It could be hung up looking in the wrong places. Remove all peripheral hard drives and memory sticks. Try again.

Most likely your video card is broken. To check if the motherboard isnt broken either, I would suggest you test usb, sound, and other features of the motherboard.
 If your motherboard isnt broken then you have to buy a "pci-e graphics card" at your local store. Shouldnt cost much, about $40-70. Hope that helps.
