When turning on Monitor, the green light comes on but nothing on screen


When I turn on the computer, the green light comes on, but nothing appears on the monitor except for a change in color from black to dark dark blue (the change is slight). I tried another monitor and same thing occurred, so I think it may be the computer. I tried restarting, and doing other things, but nothing seems to work. Is the video card a possibility?

The video card is a possibility these kind of problems usually happen when switching between monitors, or if your computer fell for some reason and cause the video card loose in its slot

so before i can tell you to change the video card, i would ask you to make sure that the video card is placed properly in its slot
