I am not too much of an CPU aficionado so please forgive me if my explanation/problem below is not too CPU Savvy. I have had a problem with this for about a week now. Have tried to switch screens, switch out the outlets in the back of the CPU(the one that connects the blue outlet), tried two different screens but to no avail. When I turn on my CPU, everything seemingly works. I can hear the sound after the ''Welcome'' signal pops up, i'm able to type my password to allow myself to get on. Its just the screen does not show anything....its just black with the power button as orange/stationary. The screen itself seems to work when not plugged in.....both screens turn on and the green button is on rather than the orange one I get. Its just weird with this and I have no idea what the problem is. Any help would be appreciated....I can get the model names of the screen/monitor if need be if that helps.

It would be useful if you were to post the make and model of this computer.

 

Do these two monitors work on another computer?

 

Just to help make things clear, the CPU is the Central Processing Unit which is a component on the motherboard.  Since you have indicated that you have an external monitor I'm guessing this is a desktop computer, also known as a PC.

Hi, I think you shave issue with your RAM. unplug the RAM and PLUG it again. Restart the machine it will work.

 

If there was a problem with the RAM the computer wouldn't get past the POST, as I understand it so far the computer is booting, but there is now video.
