Hello, I used my PC this morning before I packed it up to head to a LAN tournament. I’ve done this several times before and there has been no problems. However this time, when I get to the event and get everything set up, my monitor doesn’t get a signal, but my keyboards LED lights are on and my mouse isn’t working. Tried different monitors and different cables (HDMI, DP) with no avail. I took out the graphics card and put it into a different slot and also tried unplugging it and holding the power button. I gave up and got a rental and everything worked fine so I’m figuring it’s either the graphics card or my PSU. Let me know if you guys have any other ideas or if I should just take it to my local computer repair shop. Thanks!!
Edit** my MB is an Asus strix b350-f gaming and has a orange light at the bottom right. Not sure if that means my PSU is faulty?

Thank you
The orange light indicates your mobo is standing by and receiving power. Nothing to worry about.

For the issue itself, I suggest checking the pins on your GPU. Maybe some are loosened or bent.
If you have access to another GPU, try using that and see if the monitor starts. (if it does, it's highly likely your GPU is damaged.)
Also make sure your GPU is properly seated and has the required/necessary pci input.

Check all cables inside and outside the PC. Check the PC with another monitor and/or check the monitor with another PC to determine if the PC or the screen is causing the problem.
