My pc was working fine this morning but when I got home it wouldn’t wake from sleep. I realized the pc was in fact on, but the monitor wouldn’t wake from sleep.

the keyboard lights up still, the mouse lights up, and I can hear the windows startup sound when I turn it on.

Any idea what could be the issue? The pc is custom and very old so something might have given out, just not sure what.

Update: I tried using my monitor on my laptop… at first it wouldn’t detect it at all. I used a different hdmi and it still won’t work tho it detects it now. Still going to sleep mode. Is my monitor junk?
