Einleitung

This repair aims to resolve a potential connection issue that could occur any time after excessive use of gaming desktops. PC outlets usually charge an unfair amount of money to perform simple fixes, so this guide should help you save your wallet. Gaming monitors sometimes may not respond after pressing the start-up button and this may be simply caused by a connection issue between the internal graphics card and the monitor. I will perform how to properly check and resolve this issue so that the monitor will have a correct display using a rubber or eraser. Use caution when doing this guide that you don't get dust or debris in your PC when applying this method or use an eraser that doesn't flake.

To ensure your success on the repair, please give yourself a clean and clear area for placing additional PC parts/screws.

Make sure to power off your PC completely and disconnect from any external power source prior to beginning the process.
