Why aren't my monitors working?

Tags: Windows, Hardware
In the middle of writing something, both my monitors suddenly disconnected from my desktop. It happened for both at the same time, so I suspect it's my computer, but how do I get them back up without shutting my computer down, if possible?

Only thing you can try without stopping your system

Is to check that the plugs for the monitors are properly connected at both the computer end and the Monitor End if they have that type of cable.

The most likely thing that has happened here is that the Video Card has moved slightly in it's socket and needs to be reset which means you have to turn it off open the case and remove and reseat the Video Card.

Which Graphics card you're using? That might be causing the issue.
