    Unhappy Monitor switches to standby during bootup ???

    Monitor blanks out and goes to standby mode during bootup. Cannot do anything. Connected to a GeForce 3 card (unsure of exact make,spec). I also tried connecting monitor on the standard onboard Video card connection but then there is no life at all, it just stays in standby mode. I've plugged monitor into a diff PC and it works no problem. Any idea where I should start to solve this.This has just happened at the very worst possible time. Always the way. Any help greatly appreciated.

    sounds like a drivers issue.......... you say you put in a GF3, did you disable onboard video in the bios when you did this? If you did, that will be why onboard connection wont work, if you didn't there may be a conflict between onboard and GF3 and you will need to look at disabling it. Do you have the latest drivers for the GF3? Try removing the GF3 and using the onboard.......... if that works then the onboard is still enabled, if it is disabled try reinstalling the GF3 with the latest drivers applicable.

    I had this problem with a Radeon and onboard in my old pc.
