So my brother came home and his monitor wasn't displaying anything. Fearing it was the video card, I took his pc and plugged my monitor into it...nothing.
Figuring it was his video card, I plugged my monitor back into my pc and now it won't display anything either, not even the BIOS screen at boot, even though it was working when I had it on my pc literally a minute before...
Should probably mention we both use DVI on LCD monitors.
My pc never interacted with my brothers and I didn't touch anything else besides the monitor cable connecting to my pc.
I've checked for bent pins, tried using the VGA inputs and cable, turned off both monitor/pc and let them sit a bit before trying again.
I've taken the VGA and DVI cables from my pc and plugged it into my brothers monitor with no luck, however plugging the VGA cable from my notebook into my monitor worked fine, so I know my monitor works.
Any help or ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Edit: I have a Radeon x850 and my brother has a GeForce 6600 if that helps.
