    I'm helping a friend fix their computer monitor and I'm a little stumped!

    They've got a Samsung SyncMaster 930B monitor with constantly blinking green light and no images displaying, just a black screen. Pushing the power button on the monitor does nothing, not even turn it off. Unplugging and replugging it also does nothing to the blinking light. The screen will not turn on, not even during reboot. The hard drive fan seems to be running and computer seems to be processing during reboot. I even tried hooking the monitor up to a laptop to see if it would work, with no results.

    The computer itself is a three year old HP Pavillion a1340n with Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. It has Norton Antivirus. Unfortunately, I cannot get in to see if there is anything else wrong with it without lugging another monitor over from somewhere else and trying to hook it up.

    If, as you indicate, you've tried it on a known working system and it still doesn't work then the most likely culprit is the monitor itself. If you can find a reasonably priced repairer then get them to fix it. It usually works out a lot cheaper, tho', to buy a new one.
