  1. hi.

    not sure if this is the right section or not but i thought this would be the best bet .

    My dad had a pc at work which is alot better than the one i have now.

    yesterday he bought it home as he no longer uses it there. I set it all up but the monitor doesnt seem to be recieving and signal so it doesnt turn on.

    iv tried both my current monitor and the one he bought home that was origonally used with the pc.

    any suggestions?

    On startup press delete or whatever keyboard key is required to enter your bios. and set the bios to fail safe default. if your dads computer is a few years old the cmos battery is probably dead.

    Don't use older monitors with newer PCs. Best bet is to go out and buy a new Monitor that will work and support your Video Card.
