Hello, I have a monitor i have been using for some time now, just a few days ago I got two new monitors. I tried to plug in one, but when i did nothing happened, the monitor was functioning but receiving nothing from the computer so i did the usual unplug re plug turn off turn back on ( turning off the computer so it was off when making any changes to the monitor then turning back on once a change was made), all that and it still did not work so i tried to plug my original monitor back in but the same thing happened, the monitor was functioning but was receiving nothing from the computer or if it was it was just a black screen. I had had a slight problem with the computer before all this happened where if i moved the monitor connection cable it would make the monitor screen go black and I would have to move it around to get it to turn back on. But after i tried to plug the new monitor in, gave up and tried to plug the old one in it would not work even when i tried to move it around to get it to work. It is not the monitor i tested it on another computer and it worked perfectly fine and was working in my computer fine just before i unplugged it. once i unplugged it it all went down hill and no matter what i do i cannot get any monitor to turn on with the computer, but it works just fine with another computer. it appears that my computer is not working with any monitors. Any help on how to fix it would be greatly appreciated
unfortunately i do not know the specs of my computer, i had it custom built for me specifically for gaming the only thing about it i know is the processor is the i7 extreme. I also do not know the model of my monitor, i apologize for my lack of accurateness, I will try to answer any thing you need to know about it if i can.
also i am using a VGA cable plugged into an adapter so it will fit onto my computer it goes from a typical VGA into an adapter for a DVI-I
