Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

My monitor is not responding to anything. what can i do aside from rebooting?

Answers :

Do you see the light blinking in the monitor? I mean the POWER led light up? If so, then the monitor is ok and is working good. It is your CPU which has a problem and not sending digital signal for the monitor to display.\015\012
\015\012Try to turn off your computer. After 3 minutes turn it back on. then notice if you will hear a short beep from the CPU. That signals a successful video initialization. If you went through that process, then your computer will get back to life. \015\012
\015\012However, if you dont hear a short beep from the CPU, then definitely your CPU is frozen therefore there is nothing to display to the monitor.\015\012
\015\012You need to open the CPU case, pull out memory modules then plug them back in. Then try booting.\015\012
\015\012If not successful, try to open case and pull out the processor. Put it back in after 30 seconds. Try booting again.\015\012
\015\012Do ALL THESE while your PC is UNPLUGGED.\015\012
\015\012Good luck.

I have a Sceptre x22 gamer that has been serving me well for about two years. A week ago I started having trouble getting the monitor to ''Wake Up'' after the computer goes to sleep or when rebooting. It has become so bad recently that I had to turn the monitor on and wait 15 minutes before it would start to display anything. I don't think it is an issue with the inputs as there is usually a blue display that comes up whether anything is plugged in or not. Usually you are able to switch modes wh
