  1. I've been building computers for personal use since the early 80's. I'm 67 years old, but still think you younger folks can teach us old dogs some new tricks. I'm not that interested in useing computers, but just love to build the things. (keeps my fingers nimble). I'm having monitor, and power supply problems that I am hopeing some of you will be able to help me with.
    My power supply is only 300 Watts, so I know that is too small to power the computer and monitor. I have a new 650 watt power supply on order and should soon be here. The computer fires up, but as soon as I hook the monitor to the video card, the monitor goes to sleep, but the computer keeps running.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks.
