Apologies in advance for being dumb!
I have been given a new tower and I cant get a signal to my monitor. Monitor works on old tower. I tested new tower with monitors at work and no issues. Any ideas?

using a monitor that works reduce the resolution to minimum and then try your monitor. if it works increase the resolution in steps until the mopnitor goes black. if the resolution isn't adequate for your needs it's time for a new monitor.

check the tower and see if you are plugging into the correct video connector, meaning does it have a graphics card installed in one of the lower slots and you're plugged into an onboard video connector that may be disabled.


that's where I would start.
