    do any other monitors work? if not, you should check to see that your vid card is working. if other monitors work, you can reasonably expect the problem to be with the aforementioned display.

    ok when plugged the monitor in there was power but no image i used a standard vga cable from a local computer shop.
    Do i need a specific cable or are the pins the same?

    The IIyama's support both standard VGA 15-pin and 5-BNC cables (for higher end workstations). Both should work fine.. and a standard 15-pin VGA cable should also work just fine. If it's a used monitor though, it's a gamble what inputs work or problems it may have.

    unless your cables or hookups are faulty, the monitor in question does indeed appear faulty.

    getting it repaired

    Would it be worth getting it looked, repaired or just dump it?
