Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

When I turn my monitor on, the green power button comes on and then turns to amber. Nothing will display. What should I try


Answers :

You need to check your video card. Check if it is still ok and functioning properly. You can also try checking your memory card. that are the two pieces usually causes that problem. Try this :

1. Double check the cable that connects the monitor and video card. Remove the connection of your monitor to your CPU (the video card cable is what i mean) then turn on your monitor. If the monitor displays a message like this " Check signal cable" it means it is working fine and there is a problem in your CPU.

2. This step is just for PC that are using PCIE or AGP video card,not built in there motherboard. Remove your video card if you have a PCIE or AGP video card, using an eraser (pencil eraser) you can clean the connectors of your video card (the coppers that is use to connect it to motherboard).

3. Try to remove your memory card. And the same as what you do in your video card, use an eraser to clean up the copper connector of your memory.

4. Put it all back in place. Make sure it is properly connected. Then turn on your computer.

If your monitor is still not working, you may use an internal speaker so that you can check if there is a problem in your motherboard.
