I unplugged the monitor from the computer and plugged the power cord into another outlet and achieved the same result, although 1 outlet gave me nothing.
The only new thing to my system is the surge protector that I got last week as the other one was shot and giving me trouble when I tried to turn on the computer, which is now resolved.
Otherwise, everything was fine up until the minute I restarted. I just heard the computer beep as if it was asking me something but as I cannot see anything, I don't know what.
I do not have another monitor to check with my desktop computer.
Before I go and buy another monitor, which I really don't want to do, are there any suggestions to confirm the need for a new one? Could it be something in the computer itself? A video card of something? Or is it surely the monitor?
Thank you in advance for any help you can offer.
