Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

I had a power surge and my monitor doesn't work now, when the adapter is plugged in it is solid green when I plug the monitor in the power light on both the adapter and monitor blink and I hear a clicking sound, it sounds like it's coming from the adapter

Answers :

You need to isolate this somehow. Connect the monitor to another computer and see if it works or try a different monitor on your adapter. With a clicking sound coming from the adapter my guess is you need to replace the adapter but it is possible the monitor is the problem. You'll either need to repair/replace the monitor or replace the adapter card.
Try a different power cord, if that doesnt fix it your mointer might be toast, but its worth a try opening it up and checking the components
