✔ Best Answer
If the plug on the end of the monitor cables compatible with the plug on the PC, the chances are that is compatible. Monitors are all pretty much the same once you get past the inputs..

However, as you give no details of the PC or te monitor, any answer is going to be guess work.

Thanks. My next move will be to try the monitor on another PC to see if works elsewhere

Does the monitor you have now show nothing on the screen or is it OK when you first turn on the computer (shows the posting or logo screen) but fail when you get into windows? If the latter it may be a resolution problem. In that case try tapping F8 before the OS starts loading and choose safe mode from the boot menu. Once there you can go into display properties and set the resolution to the safe mode settings. Then save and reboot to normal mode. From there you can adjust the resolution to something higher, making sure it's something the monitor can handle.
