Q – My screen is black, what do I do now?

A - Make sure the monitor is on. If no power light (green or orange) is seen on the monitor display try pressing the power button until it comes on. If you have a power light, your computer may be in sleep mode due to inactivity.  Try moving your mouse or pressing the space bar on the keyboard to wake it up. Finally, make sure that the monitor cord is connected securely to the back of the computer.  If none of these bring back your picture, you may need the help of a professional
