Ok, I am having trouble with my monitor. I plugged it into my computer that i just recently purchased from a pawn shop. whenever I turn the computer on, it starts up, but the monitor just sits there with a black screen like it's turned off. when i unplug the monitor it tells me that it is unplugged, so i know the monitor works, and I also tried the monitor on the computer i'm using right now and it didn't work either. there is a little pink cord that comes out of the monitor plug, i dont know what it is for. it is the same size as a head phone plug. i dont think it was plugged into the computer when I purchased it. Also it worked at the pawn shop right before i got it.

How does it "tell" you that? (eg. does it show a message on it like some monitors do, etc)?

Because if you plug it into a known working computer, and it(the monitor) doesn't work, that would lead me to suspect the monitor isn't working.


Only thing I could think of, aside from a defective monitor, is to make sure the VGA cable you're using isn't damaged.


there is a little pink cord that comes out of the monitor plug, i dont know what it is for. it is the same size as a head phone plug.

If the monitor also has built in speakers / mic , it will have plugs for you to be able to connect the sound to your system board.
