i have tried removing the video card and plugging into the onboard video but no change, i plugged the monitor into my laptop and it works fine. everything seems to start up but i don't here any beep when i boot up, i thought maybe the power supply is going but after not hearing any beep at boot up i'm not sure now. Any help would be much appreciated. cheers Rob
have you checked that the cable isnt faulty (providing your using a different one to connect to the laptop)? have you tried the different connections on your graphics card (DVI/VGA/HDMI)? maybe on connection its forcing a resolution too high for the monitor to handle?
