Monitor issues after installing new motherboard

February 22, 2013 10:08:15 AM

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this.....
I know windows XP is almost obsolete but I love my system (sorry had to get that out). I have a old gateway 510XL with a midway motherboard, P4 3.2 GHz, Audigy sound card.
I replaced the motherboard with an identical motherboard, put in a new PSU, made all the connections, computer came on, fans came on (cpu, psu and case) monitor goes immediately into powersaving mode. I have tried unplugging everything and with only 1 stick of memory, PSU, CPU (has integrated video), holding the power button for 10 seconds with everything off and still no luck. Any suggestions? could it be a bad cpu? Thanks
