The monitor I've had for the past 4 years has started acting up. Sometimes I'll turn my computer on, but the monitor doesn't seem to be receiving a signal and it's LED will stay orange. However, the OCD works and the same thing has happened when I use my roommate's monitor so I don't think the Dell is to blame. I'll end up turning my computer on and off several times before it works. Everything inside the case seems to be working properly, but I guess something's wrong. I'm just trying to narrow down what it could be. Video card, PSU, or mobo. I don't have any spares to swap in to test with, but if anyone has any ideas or advice, I'd really appreciate it.

Is your Video Card on board or pci? If so try the monitor in the onboard or vice versa see if that works.

It's PCI. I've tried it with the onboard with the same results.
