monitor doesnt come on. :(
Posted on 2003-10-27
please help me!!! a while ago, when i turned my machine on, the monitor would occasionally not turn on. but then i left it for a couple of hours and on it would come. it was pretty temperamental, but mostly after a couple of goes it would come on. anyway, i went on holiday for 3 weeks and now it just never comes on. it sounds like the pc just doesnt get to the stage where the monitor comes on (if you know what i mean?).
the monitor has power going to it and is new and there is nothing wrong with it. i have an nvidia graphics card, but tried connecting the monitor to the original card and also another nvidia to no avail.
i have a packard bell pentium 4, 1.6GHz pc with xp home.
i know i will probably have to add more info, but would really appreciate all input.
thanks very much.
