I have a Kogi 19" LCD monitor and compaq pc. had power outage 10 times in one day... came home -- monitor black.. power light didn't go on (at any color). (pc works fine) thought i blew the monitor.. took it to best buy (with the power cord)-- they plugged it into their pc (with their cord to connect monitor to pc) and it worked fine..
ok -- then thought it could be videocard... hooked up another monitor to pc -- worked fine.. so i figured videocard is fine... thought it couldn't be anything else except the cord that connects the monitor to the pc... took that to best buy -- they plugged one of their monitors to one of their pc's and it worked fine...
i'm stumped? someone told me possibly the drivers were lost during the storm... if so, where do i find the drivers and how do i install them? any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
Note: connections were checked to make sure they were tight and tested all electrical plugs -- they were working fine...
When you got the pc, you should have been given a starter pack with some CD-ROM's in the pack, one of them should be the drives for the monitor, you might need to use anothermonitor to see the instructions, but the basic graphics card should power the monitor enough to set things up, until then you won't be able to adjust the settings.

Could the power cable be loose at the back/bottom of the monitor? I'm assuming that you've checked the connection at the wall or surge supressor. And some monitor power cables have a converter "brick" in the middle of the cable - and the cable from the wall may be detachable from the brick. If your monitor power cable is like this, check the connection on the "brick" as well.
Sounds like the power outage damaged the video interface could be damaged. You might have had a spike that effected the red input of the monitor. You can try to order a video interface, or like I suggest to others, look for the same monitor but broken on ebay and swap out the interface board. Chances are this will fix your problem.
