I was on my computer when the power went off in my house and now when I go to try and turn my comuter back on it just beeps once then the screen is just completely blank...please help and bear in mind I am a beginner!!!

Is something wrong with the power supply or is it the actual harware that is *[email protected]:ed?

1) check with another socket
2) check with another monitor (depends how long you have had it)
3) is it a desktop or laptop
4) mite be a graphic card.,....but dont be alrmed you have to do primary checks first

Hi, also check the fuse if the monitor has its own mains connection.

Another question, is the monitor TFT or CRT? If TFT it's power supply might be at fault, I had
a TFT power supply 'go' on my own - and it was quite new, got a free replacement.
