I recently disconnected my late husband's Samsung monitor  from his computer, then realized I could not use the monitor as I wanted. When I hooked it back, I had a black screen with the HDMI/analog insignias flashing back and forth, then the monitor stays black. Thought I could hook MY computer to the monitor, and it does the same thing. Then I hooked my computer back to MY monitor, and it stays totally black. Any ideas?

Make sure you are plugging it into the right port. On some video cards it is picky which port you plug it into.

Do you know the specs of each computer like the video card?
