I purchase a comp from a friend. just came with the tower, i hooked up the monitor off of my cpu to the other but when i power up the screen is blank and the off/on switch on the monitor stays orange, i really need help with this could it be a bad video card, ram or psu causing this. i think i have tried everything. it just wont detect it:( but the comp runs fine.

Well if the monitor works with your other PC, it must be fine. Is it onboard video or a video card?

its a hercules video card. i finally got it to work with the monitor last night, installed xp but when i went to reboot it did the same thing again. Could it be just the monitor itself, i even install a higher watt psu. Also the front tower green light doesnt come on now. but its running and i can hear the os booting.
