  1. Hi,
    My friend has moved her computer and now her monitor wont show anything on the screen. She has a compaq s710 monitor. The light on the front of the monitor is green and is flashing. We have tried to move the plugs to see if it is a connection problem but nothing happens. When we turn the tower on it seems to click but doesnt enable the screen. Plz help

    Here are some possibilities:

    The video adaptor that you are plugging the monitor into may have become loose inside the computer. (you may be able to confirm this by gently moving the connector at the back of the computer)

    There may be two video adaptors at the back of the computer (please confirm - if so try the other)

    The monitor may have died (does the computer seem to be loading - flickering front lights - and sound from harddrive)

    The computer itself may not be starting (does the computer seem to be loading - flickering front lights - and sound from harddrive)

    Thx for your help. The computer seems to be loading so it may be the monitor as you said. We are going to try another monitor today then we will know if it is the computer or the monitor. Again thx for your input
