No, the screen is completely blank and does not respond at all.
I don't have another monitor laying around, but I did connect the monitor to my laptop and verified it works. It wouldn't make sense for it to be the problem, since the computer is running the fan at full blast.
Lenovo. not custom.
Just says Lenovo. It turns out the PC works fine when I plug it into another outlet, so I think the power strip may actually be what's busted. Since I already have it open though, I'm looking up a couple things before I close it. Been wanting to upgrade it for gaming, but I think it's one of those where the graphics card and motherboard are integrated and you have to replace the whole thing.
