Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Pc appears to turn on, but screen does not come up (dark)


Answers :

Sounds like the monitor is bad or the PC doesn't see it.

Try the monitor with another computer to see if it's still good. If it is then get a card for your computer to plug it in. The thing might be bad.

That or if you installed a graphics card you might have a different problem.
