  • Make sure the power cord is securely connected to the outlet and the computer.
  • If the computer has a power switch, make sure it is on. Usually located at the back of the computer.
  • If using a power bar, make sure it is plugged into the wall and switched on.
  • Make sure the monitor is on.
  • Is the monitor also not turning on? It may be an outlet / power bar issue.
  • Is anything else plugged into the power bar working? If not, the power bar might be faulty.
  • Is anything else plugged into the wall outlet working? If not, an electrical circuit breaker might have “tripped”
  • Is the computer powered on (blinking lights, whirring noises) but the monitor is blank? Make sure the video cable is securely connected to both the monitor and the computer.
