Check your graphics and other drivers. If that doesn't work, then it could be that something got corrupted during the windows installation, and you might have to repair/re-install it.

Do you have another monitor you could hook up to your pc to see if the monitor is faulty ?

Or hook your monitor to another pc.

Uninstall your video drivers, reboot the pc, let windows install the drivers.
