i'm working from home today and using my work supplied laptop w/my home monitor as a dual screen system. while I was on a conference call, there was a power "blip" The laptop came back on but the desktop monitor is gone. No lights and the on/off switch isn't doing anything. I've unplugged an replugged the monitor. I turned the power strip on and off and i unplugged the monitor from the laptop and plugged it back in. Did my monitor just die?
Some monitors have a microswitch where thepower cord plugs in and in the event of a power outage you need to pull the powercord out from the back of the monitor and then plug it back in before it will turn on once again.
