Windows 7: 2nd Monitor Not Working

You tried another monitor and it worked on the second cable? If so then it's for sure the monitor. Have you tried connecting the faulty monitor via a different connection on it's back panel? Maybe that will fool it or jump start it and if you get it working you can make this a never sleep in it's settings???

More good advice. :) I did swap monitors and cables - nothing worked. I just tried a VGA cable and still nothing. Looks like my monitor is down.

Alan, I REALLY appreciate you sticking with me on this. Thanks my Brother!

Ok, just did the final bit to confirm. I connected the monitor to my wife's laptop via VGA cable. Still not working. I've got a malfunctioning monitor.

Admin, let's show this one solved. Thanks everyone. :)

If you think you're headed towards a replacement monitor then maybe you can try to open it up and see if maybe it's just a malfunctioning switch? At the very least I'm sure it's interesting just what you'll find going on inside. You may google the monitor or youtube it...never know, someone with the same problem solved or opened up???

I looked @ the back to open it up a few days ago. Looks like I need a tool I don't have. Not surprised.
