Computer trouble message guide
Screen says No "VGA available or something like that in a small colored box then goes to a black screen that asks if s start in 3 different modes or last known working configuration is desired - tried all four and then we start all over again
First message means the monitor is not receiving signal from the GPU. Start up option means the GPU is working. Looks like your computer is stuck in a boot up loop. here is a trouble shooting guide http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261145-31-perform-steps-posting-boot-video-problems

Got ahold of a computer guru - ck'd it out - Mother board not longer wanted to mother. He is suppose to be retrieving some items I wished to move over to a new computer which I have since obtained.
It is a windows seven - even though I have set the monitor to never sleep I still find the screen completely blank of all icons & etc on occasion -
have to shut down and bring back up - ctl alt delete just gives a blank screen - sounds abnormal to me. Thank you for your reply to my original problem.
Thought I had responded to close the issue. Turns out motherboard went south on old computer so simple solution was to replace since unit was 6 years old. Issue w/new unit going to sleep was resolved when I realized in my zeal to hook up the new monitor i attached Two cables to monitor from tower. Thanks all.
