My computer recently stopped sending a signal to the monitor. It's an older computer (maybe 5 years), it turns on fine...but the monitor remains blank. I typically have to hold the power button for about 10 seconds to turn the tower off.
I've tested the monitor...and when I unplug it from the tower, it goes through its regular "not connected" screen.
Any ideas on either how to fix the problem, or how I could somehow transfer files from the old computer to a newer one?
