Faulty PSU?

I believe the PSU on one of our computers is malfunctioning. The problem is that although the computer is clearly working, it’s not communicating with the monitor. I’ve swapped out the video card, but the problem remains. Is there any test I can do to determine whether the PSU has a fault?

Have you tried either the psu on a different monitor or the monitor on a different psu? This should tell you if the monitor or PSU is at fault

Thanks inapickle99, I've tried the monitor on another computer and it's OK.
Wow!Fruit Bat /\0/\, technical or what? The monitor, a flat panel LCD screen, shows in the centre of the screen a 'signal check' with nil KHz and a green LCD which, after a while, goes to amber and blank screen . Given these circumstances, I think it's reasonable to assume (unless you know otherwise) that the monitor is OK, and that there's something in the computer that's not.
