Monitor stopped displaying

  1. Yesterday, my monitor stopped displaying anything. This started happening a few days ago but after a few reboots it would display again. However, it has permanently not displayed anything since yesterday.

    I have two spare monitors which I have tried to use. However, the plugs do not match; therefore, I can't test it out on a different monitor.

    The possible parts which I think could be causing the problem are the video card, PSU, motherboard, or the monitor. When I boot the computer, the video card fan is spinning so I am not sure if that is the problem.

    I would like some suggestions and opinions on this. Thanks :)

    Thanks for the link. I'll try to test those out.

    I just tested out the monitor on my other computer and it displays. So it is something internal on the problematic computer that is causing the problem.
