    Son has done something to his computer (rolls eyes)
    Hes been using his monitor for his xbox so he can use his computer steering wheel and all was well. But since then when he's plugged the computer screen back into the computer it's showing no signal. He's also hooked up the computer to another monitor and again no signal. I suspect he has pressed a button (one of the F keys?) and now the computer isn't sending the picture to his monitor. Any ideas? We've switched all cables and used HDMI and VGA to no difference. Also done the unplugging power and pressing power button...
    Thanks

    Secondary functions on the F keys are computer specific rather than an industry standard, so I can't really help there.

    Winkey + P would be the standard shortcut for switching between multiple monitor modes, although I'm not sure if it'll let you disable the screen with only one connected.

    Is the monitor's controls set to the input the computer is connected on?
