Hello,

Everytime I turn on my computer , monitor turns off and stays off with light orange. I tested the monitor alone and plugged it directly and it's working. But when I connect it to my CPU it turns off!
What could be the problem? Please help! Thanks.

Test a different monitor on the PC. The monitor is likely powering down because it is not getting a video input. Which means the PC isn't booting properly (ie: not completing POST) or there is a video output issue.

:) Don't have any monitors available. About to go to the shop and have it fixed...should I bring the cpu alone or both the monitor and cpu? Thanks for the reply.

You can take both. They can easily test the monitor right there before you leave. It will only take a minute to verify if it's working.
