hello everyone i just joined and am wanting some help with a couple of computer monitors that i have, the problem is that when i plug one of them up to a computer and to the power outlet i hit the power button on the monitor and it powers up but when i turn on the computer nothing shows up on the screen, now before you say check the connections, check the video card etc, these screens are being tested on a system with a working video card etc and the system has been tested with a screen that works, so if anyone has any ideas on why this is happening(same thing with both screens) then please let me know, thanks in advance for any help/advice.

Depending on the age of the monitors if the Native (base/standard) resolution of the computer is higher then the monitors capable resolution you wont get a display.

Try resetting the CMOS either by removing the motherboard battery for a while or the jumper. If the screen comes up on restart, go into the BIOS and select restore default settings, save, and exit. What are the make and model of the problem monitors?
