Second monitor connected by HDMI to DVI shows black screen

Hey guys.. so I connected my other SA350 monitor from my other broken computer to my main one, and it shows a black screen. They're the same monitors, and the power to both are on. I'm on Extended, the other monitor's input is HDMI and the output port on the computer is DVI (Amazon Basics). Main monitor is VGA to VGA. What should I do? Updated system specs for your convenience.

Solved. Sorry, it seems the monitor is just Pfftt. It's dead, and it's going to the Samsung Service Center ASAP.
