Why does my PC monitor not switch on when I work on the computer?

I have a PC at home and whenever I am on the PC, the screen won’t switch on or come on. What seems to be the problem here?

    Not much information to work on so let's start with the very basics:
    Is the monitor power cable connected?Is the monitor properly connected to the PC?Is the monitor turned on?Is the computer turned on?Does this happen when you turn the computer on (it was power off) and/or only when it was in Standby/Sleep mode?Does the monitor work in general e.g. have you tested it on another PC?
