    Monitor doesn't turn on , Computer does,... what should I do?

    My computer turns on, but the monitor light doesn't lit up when computer is on. It looks like it is on standby for a long time. How do you get out of the "standby" mode? I held for a few minutes the computer on button, then turned it back on, but still nothing is showing up after turning on computer.

    What should I do?

    What are the computer specs?
    Which graphics card have you got?
    Have you tried the monitor on a different computer?
    its probably your computer and not your monitor.
    Possibly an issue with Graphics card or Motherboard

    I've had this problem several times with different PC's... it could be a few things.

    Reseat your graphics card firmly,
    Reset the BIOS with the jumper on your motherboard,
    Check components in another PC (if you can).

    And as muarrif said, what are your specs?

    You can also try a different video card in your computer. This recently happened to me and I figured out my video card had died. Luckily it was still under warranty.

    Problem

    I had that problem at work with 3 monitors. Are they still under warranty? Found out there was a problem with the monitor. We got them all replaced. But do check to see if another monitor works on that computer first.

    I agree with these other guys.........remove the simple first........check the monitor with another pc or the PC with another monitor. Then let us know your findings

    :(

    i noticed the light on the monitor is faintly lit, and when i turned on the computer it turns on but after asking a few more people , turns out it could be possibly the motherboard. i asked my sister and she said the same thing.
    thank you all for helping... much appreciated.

    There's more than just the motherboard that can be wrong...it's much better to actually identify the problem through troubleshooting rather than just go and replace parts. If you had a problem with the motherboard or video card there would be a beep sequence or with some motherboards a little red display on the motherboard. I have run into a problem in the past where the computer wouldn't stay on long enough for the moniter to wake from it's sleep state. The computer would error and reboot over and over with the moniter never turning on. regardless, testing and reporting your specific symptoms will allows us to identify what the problem is.

    i want to thank everybody for replyin!!! i couldn't finish reading your messages!!! it's an analog monitor, not lcd. i tried connecting my monitor into my laptop and it works. reseting the BIOS was a task i didnt knew if it did right, i just did what the manual told me to.. i just took away all the graphics and sound card... i just left all the integrated components. the monitor just doesnt starts, keeps on sleep mode (with the front led bipping)

    pull the computer and wit a lil brush u clean the memory slots, i guess i was 2 late on this post but if sum1 else is interested u can try this..

    if that doesnt work u can try the graphic card like the others said or ur power supply...

    and if all a dat fails it might just be ur motherboard...

    i definitely wudnt recommend ya'll just go buying these components so make sure u try 2 run tests with the right components. remember google is every mans bestfriend...

    so just in case sum1 finds this post again there r several things u can try before going to buy parts, get a clean soft bristle paint brush and clean the memory slots. if u have graphics card clean the slots thats in. the POST beeps are quite useful so google those.

    check graphics card, power supply, and if all this fail then it just might b ur motherboard.....

    I'll bet on blown capacitors - 'cause I fixed mine.

    Corporate Computer

    There are instructions on how to open up the monitor.

    I had two blown caps. I replace them and all is well... or I wouldn't be typing this post...

    The symptoms were;
    Very slow to come up
    Very dark screen
    Finally a black screen with blinking power light.

    consider replacing the monitor....depending on the model and age.....caps and bulbs kinda seem to happen together.......when one bulb wears out you usually have to replace them all.
