  1. I recently purchased a 19 inch dell monitor. I have an older generic computer. When I booted the computer nothing comes on the computer goes thru bios and then I just get a cursor. I have connected the old monitor same problem. I just dont understand. I can't even get it to boot into safe-mode. What can I do to solve this issue?

    Perhaps providing a bit more detail on what you did would be a help.

    Did the computer work prior to the purchase of the new monitor?
