    monitor goes to stanby mode Please help

    Hi just wondered if any of you computer buffs would be able to help me.

    Ive bought a old pc base and everytime i turn it on it makes the monitor go into standby mode,

    Ive tried several monitors and it happens to all of them, even tho they all work fine on my other computer

    Apparantly it worked fine before i had it.
    any help gratefully appreciated

    thanks :thumbsup:

    Do you get any POST info when the PC boots up (screen output/beeps)?

    Also Is this an add in graphics card or on-board?

    If it is an add in then try re seating the card as it may have been dislodged during transit.

    You could also try clearing the BIOS and see if it cures it.

    the screen beeps then goes directly to standby without anything coming up on the screen

    they never said about the graphics card i presume it came with one (not very computer literate)

    wat is BIOS (sorry just a woman lol)

    cheers

    i think the port which you plug your monitor in is faulty. try moving it about.

    yeh sounds like what the problem is. give a good spray / blow, clear it out. might be dust blocking one of the receptors.

    yh or what you can do is if you had a spare graphics card?? you can try plugging it into that lol thats the long way or just clean the computers vga port and try plugging it in.
