So for the past few days every time I start up my computer the monitor decides to go into sleep mode and stay there. The tower and keyboard seem to load up, lights flashing and whatnot, just not the monitor, it remains black with the amber light on.
But if I let it sit like that for several minutes and then restart it, everything turns on and loads up perfectly. And it does okay when I shut it down and start it again, like it just needs to be 'warmed up' first.
I'm guessing what could have caused it was when my friend had hit the tower with her shoe for some reason, which caused it to freeze right then and I had to shut it down by holding down the power button. But it was working okay after that, until I tried to turn it on the next day.
I've checked the wires and whatnot and everything is secure, but I haven't checked inside the case--I've never opened it before so I wouldn't know quite what to do there :/
Could something have been jarred loose?
