Hi sylvia1511 a welcome to BCnd

When you turned it on did it beep? If so how many times? Short or long?

Just to be sure, there was absolutly nothing on the screen?

Remove the monitor cable from the computer and look and both pieces (plug and computer portion) carefully. It is possible there is a bent pin or two.

When you get an orange light on the monitor, it tells you that it is not getting a signal. I know that you already knew this. The information is for others who may experience the same thing.

Edited: Welcome to BC. Cool sig image.

Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

What Brand is your old PC, And what brand is your New one? This will help us out. A Gateway PC sometimes needs it's own parts to work and wont with another brand, And If they did have a graphic card installed, there might be a jumper that needs to be reset to re-enable the onboard graphics.
