Model, age, does the OSD show?

There's a few things you can try but you left out details that I use to give a nod to this or that.

In most cases I can hook it up to something else or check the OSD works but details are too slim to call it PC or monitor.

Tell more and test this monitor on something else. I'd be more specific but the model number is missing.

Does the OSD work?

I usually test if it's the monitor by testing on another PC and another monitor on this PC.

You did not answer if the OSD worked so I take it that it does not. That points out the monitor is dead.

At a decade old it did well. Go shopping.

https://www.cnet.com/products/samsung-syncmaster-943bw-lcd-monitor-19-series/specs/ notes it has DVI so if you can, connect it to some DVD or BD player with a HDMI to DVI cable to check it out if you don't have another PC.

Many folk have a TV they can test the PC on.
