In this article we are going to sort out this issue which is making our computer guys frustrated, but doesn’t worry you are not alone in this, there are many others too who are getting irritated because of this issue of the blank screen, but here the good news is you can easily fix this issue with the below-given methods.

Let’s start this with the easiest one.

Check Whether the Monitor is ON or Not

It might seem simple, but primly you must ensure that your monitor is on. If you do not see energy led (blue-green, blue, or orange glow) at the display’s top or bottom then hit the power button again. If the light doesn’t come on after several attempts, move on through the following segment.

Check Whether the Computer is in Sleep Mode or Not

If you have left the computer for a few minutes and come back to a black screen, your computer is probably sleeping. Try using it with your mouse or clicking buttons on your mouse as well as pressing any other key like the spacebar to get it to wake up. If none of the above actions are successful then click your Power button.

Check Connectors

Another reason behind the black screen could be that it’s because the monitor isn’t communicating properly with the monitor correctly due to poor or insecure cable connections. These steps will help you make sure that the monitor is correctly connected to your computer.

You should double-check all the connectors whether it be the USB cable, power plugs, etc.

Note: If the monitor’s light is either flitting or remaining in the same color (orange on most monitors) then it is confirmed that the monitor isn’t in standby mode by dragging the mouse and clicking Esc Button. If this isn’t working try reconnecting the data cable to your computer, and then back to the screen, and then reboot your computer.

Somehow, if you are able to see the setting menu even with a blank screen, you ensure whether the contrast and brightness are on the optimal level or not.
