Sorry but are you saying your monitor is not working?

Have you tried the monitor on another PC?

are you saying that your monitor is showing 'power saving mode' or 'standby'?.

If it is, then that usually means the devices still have power to them, but are in hibernation or waiting for further working action. Some people want this, because it saves time, others might considerer this is a waste of energy and a possible safety risk?.

It looks as though you might have a problem with the video output from your PC which as you do not have a separate graphics card could mean a motherboard problem.

Can you either plug another monitor into this system or connect your TV and see if you are getting any output?

6000INR is around £65. And you will struggle to get DDR5 for that amount.But I will have a look.

Nvidia DDR 3.

AMD DDR 5
