Disconnect the cable from computer to monitor ,check that no pins are bent.

Reconnect and report result back here.

It can be a number of things, which could cost you more to resolve, repair or replace, if the computer set-up is as old as you seem to state.

Try a new cable, if you can see no damage at the connection point to the monitor or computer, because the cable might be the problem. They are not very dear from eBay.

Would a new and latest specification computer with monitor be out of the question, considering how cheap they have become nowadays.

If it's not the cable, it could be the graphics card is faulty unless you have on board graphics. Let us know what type of graphics set up you have and also the operating system.

  1. have you tried the monitor on another PC or laptop?

  2. if it works OK on another PC then it may need the graphics card removing and refitting to remake the contacts and retry.

  3. have you tired connecting the PC to another monitor or flatscreen TV? If still no good then looks like graphics card failure

A word of warning if you are going to check leads switch everything of as doing lead checks "live" could cause a short and phut equipment damaged.If you have on board graphics try reinstalling them,and if you have a separate card switch everything off and unseat then reseat it (earth yourself against static). Also check for bent pins on your cables,not as uncommon as you'd think.

I have another spare motherboard Foxconn HBi ML94V-0 E2533117. Don't know if it's working or not. CPU E2160 Pentium dual core. Does Ram Kingston BKMK 1630918 work on it? Is it similar to Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L?
