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-ste...




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.
