    Hi simmohart

    Yes, it could very well be that the card isn't receiving enough power or it could be that the card is not functioning properly. What PSU are you currently using? Does the monitor turn on if you unplug the card?

    psu is standard Dell - 305w. The card states on the requirements that it needs 350w to run, based on the processor the computer is running. That's what leads me to believe that is the only thing it could be. When I removed the card, and just ran the monitor through the integrated port, it starts up as per normal :)
    Is there any limit to what size psu that can be installed, as I am still a little green on this type of thing?
