I have a new MSI P4M900M3-L Motherboard with 390watts ACBEL True power supply.

I attached to a 17" Philip 170s lcd screen, when I turn on the cpu, the lcd just show "no video output"....

I waited for about 10 mins and the the xp desktop just appear!

So what could be wrong?

Does the motherboard have on board video and are you using a add on video card using the PCI, PCI-E, Or AGP slot? If you computer has on board video and you are using an add on you need to disable the on board video in the bios so the computer will start with the other card. Or at least select to start with the other card.

The only way to tell for sure is to try another known good monitor or a plug-in video card. I'd try to borrow a monitor first

LCD, CRT, it shouldn't matter. Especially since it's a new motherboard. I'd return it

Have you installed the proper drivers for the integrated video card? If not, does that help the problem?
Rarely (IME) a monitor will also require drivers - have you installed any drivers for the monitor?

Before you reinstall it, put it on a piece of cardboard on the table and run it out of the case. When you remount the boardmake sure the stand-offs on in the proper place and the solder traces on the bottom of the board are not touching anything. Try another monitor cable
