Monitor troubles

By Pawntaku

  1. My monitor has stopped functioning properly on boot up. It goes into power saver mode instead of coming on. Makes it fairly hard to troubleshoot. I've disconnected all the coords from the tower and rehooked them, I hooked those coords up to my second monitor and still nothing.

    I have an XPS 710, running in Vista, and it was on this morning and working fine. The last thing that happened was an AntiVir update that needed to reboot my computer, and when it rebooted, the problems started. I can't seem to do anything to it interface wise, no safemode, no bootup options. Any ideas?

    Try another monitor now, then we can continue after you do this, if needed
