    I have tried different cables. The monitor cables work on another PC. Monitor is not detecting computer. Would it be a graphics card problem?

Try unplugging the monitor cable from the computer and check if you get a power on self test displayed
if yes then the monitor is fine we have to troubleshoot the computer
and if nothing is displayed the monitor needs to be replaced.

sounds like a power issue with the monitor. try to remove and reconnect its power cord. If same thing happens, try using a confirmed working power cord like the one you use with the computer and make sure you test it out using a confirmed working power outket. If it has the same issue, would mean you need to get a replacement monitor. Refer to the vendor if it is still in warranty.

I just started having the same problem! The green light flashes, but the monitor is blank. None of the button work (menu, source, etc...) and nothing changes when I disconnect it from the computer. I was suspecting a bad graphics card at first, but now I'm thinking the monitor itself is bad?!

Sceptre LCD monitor blank screen, blinking power light


Something has failed or is failing in the monitor. It may be serviceable, but may not be cost effective to do so unless something has just come loose. I'm assuming you have no problems with the new monitor. Your time line is a little confusing.

Monitor light blinks


have you tested the power supply connection feeds? test each connector I think you will find your power supply has failed on either the 5 volt or the 12 volt side more than likely 5 volts are down' the agp adapter needs 5 volts to run. since you have changed out every thing else I would replace that or test your dads power supply in your computer, that should do the trick

your monitor is telling you it's on it's last legs..either that or your compaq has a bad video section. either is more vital than a video cable being loose.

LG Monitor not working


You really must provide more details if you want a solution.
Try putting on the monitor without pc.If it works it's video card related issue if not a hardware failure in the monitor.

I have this same problem. Try to disable the service ATI Hotkey Poller in the windows (you can use the msconfig). It seems to be all right for me now.

Good luck !
