Can you leave some more information, please? What kind of monitor (model), graphics card and if possible your used operating system version?

Okay, first things first. When did it start doing this? Just a minute ago, or anything else?
Have you installed any new drivers lately, for either videocard or monitor? Have you checked the monitor on another PC, to see if it might be the monitor itself doing this? Do you use any power saving modes in Windows?

Ok, that's weird. The other monitor not coming on could point to a damaged or not correctly working videocard. I assume your system is still under warranty, so you're not allowed to open it up yourself? If that's the case, I would give HP a ring. Or whomever you bought the PC from.

If you want, you can try to power down completely, disconnect your monitor, then remove your videocard. If it is a card, not an onboard chip.
Then try to reseat it, making sure all the gold teeth are correctly seated in the slot. Then reconnect the monitor and try again.

Don't you have an alternative videocard to test in that PC? No, I am not saying you should try to take everything out of another PC and put it over, but it is a neat way of testing what is broken. Still, with warranty on everything, I would ring as soon as possible.
