There are some steps to do regarding your issue.

1. Install your first LCD monitor into other second desktop and see if this working or not? If this working then problem in your first desktop otherwise problem in your first LCD.

2. Attach another monitor or LCD with your first desktop and check. If second monitor / LCD working properly on your first desktop then problem in your first LCD.

Another small thing, check your menu by pressing menu key exist on your LCD. If LCD built in menu show then LCD is ok and fault in your VGA card.

If there are fault in your LCD then you must repair your LCD by computer technician. If there are fault in your desktop then go to good computer technician for repair.

Hi Neerntt,

This may help to your problem:

1. Ensure that you have the correct drivers installed in the computer. Start by installing the appropriate chipset driver. You can identify which chipset you have by looking at the motherboard's manual. Follow this by installing the appropriate video driver. Typically, you should install the video driver for the video card brand you have. Make sure your drivers are updated regularly to prevent display problems. For gamers and software users, make sure that the software or game itself is updated.

2. Set the appropriate BIOS settings for your computer. Generally, you press the "DEL" button as soon as your computer boots to access the BIOS menu. You also can look at the screen during booting for information on how to access the menu. Once there, you can change the BIOS settings appropriately. To do that, make sure you consult your motherboard's manual, which will have information on what each setting means and how to set it.

3. Determine whether the problem lies with the video card or some other component of the display system. Check your monitor's brightness and contrast settings, power cable and data cable. Make sure your computer is not locked by rebooting it twice. If nothing seems amiss, check your video card.

4. Turn off the power and unfasten the plug from the power source.

5. Remove the CPU cover and determine the type of video card you have. Either it could be integrated on to your motherboard or it could be fixed in the adapter slot.

6. Make sure that the jumpers of the motherboard's integrated video card remain in place. If jumpers are missing or loose, the card may move and malfunction.

7. Check if the video card is properly seated in the adapter slot. Unless it is, the card won't work.

8. Check if your monitor and video card are compatible with each other. It is important that the maximum resolution of the video card and the monitor match.

9. Contact your vendor or any hardware technician if none of the above troubleshooting steps work.

If no image is getting displayed on your monitor, first, check that the LED indicator on the monitor is turned on. Next, try to disconnect the video cable from the video port at the back of the CPU then plug it back in. See if this works. If this doesn’t work, try connecting the monitor to another working computer. See if it works there.

If the monitor works on the other computer, it means your video card is busted. If you are using the built-in video card of the motherboard, you probably need to replace your motherboard. When the built-in video card stops working, the entire motherboard is affected. Most of the time, you won’t be able to boot your computer.

If you are using a dedicated video card, you just need to replace the damaged graphics adapter. Shift your video display to the built-in video card temporarily until you replace the graphics adapter. But if the monitor also didn’t work on the other computer, it means you need to replace the monitor.

Also, try increasing the brightness or the contrast of the monitor to see if the problem is only with the settings.
