Well folks, more stupid i probably could not feel, but what the hay, at least i now know, and perhaps this might help another noob such as myself. I did not know the power button was right in front, recessed. So when I was cleaning the front of the moniter I must of turned power off. Imagine my head shaking revelation when I pushed the power icon and it fired up. WHAT A BUFFOON! Thanks again for the replies, folks, it truly is appreciated. Live and learn...

Yeah that is why I kept asking about lights and signs of life from the monitor itself.
I was relatively convinced it was either broken or not powering on for some reason.
Glad you are sorted. :)
