It totally sounds like the backlight is toasted. If that is the case you will have to replace them. Normally if the power inverter is shot, the monitor will power up briefly at least and then shut off. If you can use a flash light and see some sort of image on the screen you know that your VGA chipset works however your backlight(s) are burnt out. If not, more than likely your power supply (power inverter chipset) is broken and needs to be replaced..

If the light is not even coming onto the monitor it sounds like it does not have power. Be sure everything is plugged in all the way. All monitors that I've seen show Green or Orange lights on the Power Button.

Old monitor not recognized by new computer, stuck in power save. I just bought a low-end machine from Ibuypower for my parents, to be used primarily for the internet, word processing, and work purposes,nothing complicated. But their old Dell UltraSharp 17'' monitor will not display anything. It's in its powersave mode while the computer boots up, but does not seem to begetting any kind of signal otherwise. I've used both the VGA and DVI hookups, neither have produced any change or response. The monitor was working just fine yesterday with the old Dell PC; there is no other monitor or PC available for me to test the monitor or new Ibuypower system with; I am writing this from a crappy ancient laptop I found in storage, circa 1998ish. I have also switched the monitor between digital and analog mode several times, but it remains in powersave. Wiggling the mouse or hitting any key like it says to bring it out of power save has not worked, although I know the keyboard and mouse are working because even blindly I have been able to click on and open things on the desktop of the new computer. I have respectable computer knowledge so you don't need to dumb-down responses for me too much - yes, the power's on and it's plugged in and all the usual stuff. I'm just perplexed because I've never had a problem with a monitor before, certainly not as silly as ''plugged it in and it doesn't work''.
