  1. I just put all the hardware together (easy part) but now i need to install OS/drivers. The problem is whenever I attempt to boot off the windows xp disk (or turn on my computer for that mattter) the monitor doesnt recieve any data and simply remains black. Anything I can do to get it working?

    EDIT: Its probably just my powersupply ill have to get a new one...
