Ok so for the past few days my monitor has been making noise but it still works so I just ignored it and started browsing the internet....... then a couple of hoours i turned it off and then the next day, i turned it on again but, the cpu is the only thing working and my monitor is only black and wont turn on... the power button doesn't have the light and i keep on hearing scratching noises from it... so what should i do??

Note: Sorry for my english. Just worried:(:confused:

New monitor! Try pulling the power plug to reset and plug it back in after a few minutes...

so it won't power up and it's still making noises? Can you tell me what Type of monitor you have and are you sure the cables are plugged in correctly?

Are you familiar with removing and reinstalling your video card?

You can also test your monitor on another computer if that's the case we're going to have to clear your CMOS and Verify that the power supply voltage is switched correctly and try reseating the video card again..

Have you tried a different monitor with that computer?
