How come my monitor works on other computers but not mine?

Q: My computer stopped showing on the monitor. My monitor is not broken because it works with other computers. Is there any way I can fix this?

  1.  

    You should check to see if your video card is dead or not. Do you have a spare video card that you could put into your computer to test with?

    Do you get any video signal from your computer? BIOS startup, etc? If you don’t even see a BIOS or Windows startup, listen closely to the computer to see if you can hear it reading the hard drive and loading windows. If it doesn’t sound like it’s loading the OS then you’re having an issue with system startup.

    Listen for any beeps too. Keep us posted
