Initial Steps

by Toivo Talikka In reply to Blank Monitor

The following questions and actions should narrow down the fault to either the monitor, the power or the PC.

Is the power light is on at the front of the monitor?

Is the power cord connected to the monitor?

Is the power outlet on the wall on and working - try to connect another monitor or PC to it.

Is the video cable connected to the back of the monitor and to the back of the PC?

Is the PC on?

Swap the monitor and see if that resolves the problem.

Does the blank monitor (of a PC) work when connected to another PC?
