This is particularly valid for cables. that don’t screw into the rear of a screen.

Ensure you actually take a look at the association at the PC and on the screen. For those of you who have more than one video card, you should proceed cautiously with how you interface the screens.

On the off chance that you have a devoted graphics card, ensure the screen is associated with the graphics  card and not to the motherboard video connection. Of course, Windows should impair the motherboard graphics naturally when you have a different graphics  card, however once in a while this doesn’t occur.

In any case, pause, check the underneath reasons additionally before doing random stuff with computer hardware.

Try detaching and afterward reconnecting all of your video cables- HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort, and VGA. What’s more indeed, old fashioned “blow into the ports”  works  as dust or crud can stuck in there. Cables break. Particularly on the off chance that you’re utilizing a PC and an external monitor. Continually plugging in connectors wears them out after some time.

To check whether your cable  is some way or another impacted, try a different video cable (e.g., from your TV) that you know works. If that delivers an image, it’s an ideal opportunity to search for another cable for your PC.

Try the above mentioned techniques and solve your concern.
