Cannot get this monitor to do anything. It has a constant flashing amber light. It worked just fine for the past two years. I turned it off two nights ago, and now it just will not do anything, but has a flashing amber light. Cannot turn off, or on.

Welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums!

When you started the computer, did you get a POST beep? If so, check the monitor cable. Change from VGA to DVI of vice versa.

Flashing amber means that the monitor is not getting a video signal.

Try a different monitor and see whether it works. If a known good monitor does not work, it means that your Graphics card is bad.
