And then, all of a sudden, your monitor goes completely black.
No matter if you are using a desktop computer or a laptop, the procedure of bringing the monitor back to life and computer maintenance should be the same.
First check computer maintenance, if the cable that connects the computer and the monitor is properly installed. (Laptop owners should check if there are any wires dangling from the laptop).
Then make sure that the cable is working, by connecting your computer to the monitor with a new cable.
If the screen is still black, connect your monitor to another computer. If it is still black, it is a sign that your monitor has passed away.
