    When you see a self test like that on your screen, it means that your monitor is not receiving a video signal from your computer. So make sure your monitor is connected to your computer correctly, and that your computer is running.

    If you never see anything displayed on your computer screen, try a different monitor if possible. Otherwise, consider having a local professional take a look at your computer.

    Bonerbob – Also take a look at your monitor to see if it has an “input” or “Source” button. If so try hitting that button until you get to the correct input that you have the cable plugged into on the monitor. This is only the case on monitors that accept more than 1 video signal input.
