Have you checked the connection to the computer?
Is the monitor power cord firmly plugged in to the power source?
If you monitor has a removable cords and cables, are they firmly plugged into the monitor?
Is it plugged into a graphics card or integrated motherboard graphics?
You could have a dead monitor or an issue with the graphics card/on-board video.
Do you have access to another monitor you can use for troubleshooting purposes?

What type of monitor?

LCD or CRT type?

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

Is the working computer a desktop? If it is try swapping the monitors.
Tell us what happens when you try each of them in a different computer.
