I just got a new monitor, it's a Samsung SyncMaster931B. I plug it in, and I just get a blank screen with a blue blinking light around the power button. No visuals on the screen at all, menu etc.
I then plugged it into my computer, booted it up and got the same thing. Just a blank screen with a blinking light around the power button.
I don't think it's my computer, other monitors work fine. I think the monitor is in standby mode, but after pushing random buttons, and moving mouse/keyboard nothing seems to wake it up.
