Problem with my monitor or graphics card?

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Last night after I used my computer I shut It down, mostly I always left it open over night because I’m always downloading some stuff. I do not worry for overheating because my room is air conditioned.

When I opened it this morning my monitor was very dark I couldn’t almost see my desktop. I shut down my computer and re-inserted my graphics card and re-plugged the monitor cable.

When I open again my computer the problem was still there.

I even set the monitor’s brightness but it won’t help me to solve the issue. Is my video card failing or the monitor itself?

One thing I observed is that I hear annoying sound from my computer.

Kindly help me to solve this problem anyone?

If you are using a dedicated video card and you already tried to remove and re-insert it in the slot, try connecting the monitor to the built-in video card of your motherboard. If the same problem appears and the display is dark, try adjusting the brightness and contrast of the monitor. If this doesn’t work, try connecting the monitor to another working computer.

If the monitor also appears dark on the other computer, it means the problem is with the display and not with the video card. In this case, you need to buy a new monitor. Try an LED monitor if your current display is analog. But if the monitor works fine on the other computer, it means the problem is with your video card.
