  1. I needed a monitor for my new system and i didn't have the money to buy a new one so my freind gave me one that he had laying around. It looks pretty old. I hook it up and start the computer and the boot screen comes up and it shows the windows start up screen and it looks fine. As soon as it goes into windows the monitor goes black. What is the problem here? I don't know what to do.

    Has it behaved normally with any other monitor or is this the only monitor you've ever hooked up to this new PC?
