    this is gonna sound stupid but have you plugged the monitor into the graphics card properly. have you plugged the power lead in

    it shouldnt accept resolution changes without you confirming after it tests the change but if it did you will need to boot in safe mode and change the resolution

    reset the CMOS. if that doesnt work make sure all of the drives etc are plugged in properly. is there an error message? do the drives initilaise?
