    I have just moved my works PC to home and have reconnected all cables again but am having a black monitor screen, with orange on/off switch and not green.

    At the back of the box the monitor cable has a male blue connector,, this is connected to another female blue connector then a larger white connector which goes into the box.

    If you take the female blue connector/white connector off the the monitor displays the four coloured boxes for self test. When you replace the female/white connector it goes blank again in the power safe mode.

    I cannot understand why it is not working and why it is going into power safe mode as nothing has changed and i am only 2 mins from work.
    Can someone help as I am not brill.:confused:
