    Idk much about computers but my computer screen recently stopped turning on, idk why this happened but I can hear the computer on but the screen won't turn on i tried to go into the boot screen but my key board wouldn't connect, the cylinder flashes when I first turn it on then it turns off and the screen stays black.

    Desktop or laptop?
    Brand and model of computer and monitor.

    If you don't ever see anything on the monitor, are you sure you aren't at the boot screen?

    Did the power light on the screen come on?
    What 'cylinder' are you talking about?

    I think by cylinder he/she means the symbol for the hard drive (at least that's how it is marked on my desktop cases).
