How do I know if my monitor is bad or if its the video card maybe? When I turned on my desktop the monitor stayed black. I could hear the Windows sound so pretty sure the computer booted up, but all I see is black. The green light is on on the monitor. Help please

If nothing comes out on the monitor the video card is causing the problem.

What is the brand and model of the PC, if it's a consumer desktop unit (i.e. Acer, Dell, Gateway, HP, ..., etc.)?

If it's not a consumer desktop unit please provide a list of the brand and model of the components used in your system (i.e. motherboard, CPU, memory, graphics card).

What type (i.e. HDMI or DVI or VGA) of video cable is being used and which port on the PC is it connected to and which port on the monitor is it connected to?
