Blank screen on start-up. Samsung monitor S22B150

Hello, I'm getting a blank screen on PC start-up. Was working perfectly OK on previous shut-down. Cannot get Menu displayed whether connected to PC or not. When powered up and not connected to PC, menu button gives 'Test OK' then a moving 'Check Signal Cable' display. Samsung website says this indicates monitor is good ? Any help would be much appreciated.

check the monitor cable is fully insert at monitor and PC if Ok then try another cable.

if above no good then try removing and refitting the graphics card (provided you are not using onboard graphics)

if still no good then card could be faulty try removing the card and plug into the onbaord graphics port.

MAke and model of PC / graphics card / motherboard may help.

Monitor works OK plugged into onboard graphics so might as well just use that! Thanks for your help
