When you say nothing happens, what do you mean?

There could be a number of causes for this and a very simple solution, but before we assume the worst please check for the following, since we need to know what’s happening exactly when you power up.

1 Verify that the monitor is plugged in, turned on, and adjusted correctly.

2 Listen for a spinning drive or fan and look for lights on the front panel of the PC case to verify the system has power

3 Check power outlets, on/off switches, cable connections and fuses.

Get back to us with your response.

Thank you and Good Luck!
