no display on lcd monitor
Posted on 2004-09-16
I upgraded my computer to an AMD 3000 64bit asus k8v mb 1gb kingston ddr400 ati 9800pro and loaded windows xp pro.
I purchased a new sceptre x9 komodoII monitor.When I first hooked it up,it worked fine for about 20 mins.I had done a poor windows install proceedure so i had reinstalled windows .When it rebooted the first time the monitor would not come up.no boot screen,power indicator is lit. so,I first checked out the manual and all connections,cords.using dvi connector,switched to vga cable,with no change.I pulled the video card and swapped it with an nvidia mx440 no change.I put My former mb and processor back in with the same results.no video but monitor is powered up.I took the monitor and hooked it up on my other computer amd 1600 mx440.and it worked fine.when I put the k8v back into the case and started it,the monitor was working again!I replaced the p/s with a thermal-take 480 watt p/s,upgraded to sp2 rebooted and no monitor again.I hooked up a spare monitor and it worked fine.It acts like its in stby mode or a conflict btw monitor and v/card.I am unsure how to change the timing setting on this ati card.
