    My monitor is too far away from my tower so I bought an extension for the VGA. The problem is when I turn the tower on, nothing comes on on the monitor and the yellow idle light on the monitor still shows even after the tower has been boot up for over 12 minutes.

    I'm using a 20 ft VGA extender that looks similar to this:
