  1. Hi all am new here so would first like to say hello to all here.

    I have a problem whenever i switch on my PC the monitor wont start up it stays constantly in standy (green light flashing but wont fire up). I have tried the monitor on my laptop and it is working fine, so then thought it could be the graphics card have installed a new one today and still the same problem monitor wont start. Please if anyone could help it would be much apprciated as i am running out of ideas now and have already purchased one graphics card that was not needed so dont want to waste more money on components that wont solve this.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help with this

    does your video card have its own power cable? if it doesnt disconnect any other hard ware such as sound cards, ipods, hardware that drains poweer. also make sure your power supply can handle all that hardware :D

    also double check its CORRECTLY connected to the right output :D

    Hi UkGunner,

    Although I can't help you with your problem I was wondering did you get it fixed and if you did how did you do it as I have a similar problem:- see "Monitors wont fire up".
