Hi abhikch

Is there any life on the monitor at all? What happens when you very first switch on? Are all the cables in securely? I know it sounds daft, but is the monitor plugged into the mains power and is it switched on? Can you try the monitor on another pc and does it work?

So many questions (and there might be more after these ...)



I really appreciate thank you messages as a payment for solving issues :o)

Hi BrianGreen,

Thanks for the reply. There is life on monitor. No issue with monitor. There is a blue light blinks under monitor when powered up and so its doing well. It is connected to mains power and no problem with it. All cables are secured. When I switched on of CPU the heatsink fan rotates, motherboard lights is also green. But no booting seen in monitor.

Sorry for the delay in responce - its been far too hectic in my sad life!

Unfortunately it seems I didnt make myself clear last time - I meant is there any life as in words or pictures on the screen. If not then I would still suspect the monitor or the graphics card. Have you tried the monitor on another system? - or conversly another monitor on your failing system?

If the monitor works elsewhere, or the "new" monitor doesnt, thin suspct the graphics card. Otherwise the monitor or the cable are to blame.
