More info please. Have you tried tapping F8 as computer boots and choose Safe Mode

If its buzzing it might be that the power adapter is faulty or not pushed in to the back of the monitor properly
Unplug the monitor from the mains then from the monitor - plug it all back in again see if that helps - make sure its pushed in properly
