Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
The hard drive is putting the monitor to sleep
\015 I have a computer that has been sitting for about a year (it was working fine when put in the closet) I am now trying to hook it up for my daughter and when i turn it on (it sounds like all is working fans, power, ect) it put the monitor into sleep mode. I have tried two different monitors and it does it to both.... I have tried turning it on and then doing the safe mode thing but the monitor screen is black so i can see anything to see if it is working...... HELP PLEASE .... \015\012\015\012( i just put on a brand name , i have no idea what it really is there is no label or anything on the case) ( I do know that there is a GeForce 2 Graphics card in it cuz i also tried pulling that out and reseating it--- that didn't work either)\015
