Hello, I just received a new monitor for Christmas. It is the Asus VX248H monitor. I had previously been using a Sanyo TV as monitor via VGA with no issues. I turned off the computer before I switched to the monitor. I booted up and it displayed the POST and loaded up. As soon as it went by Starting Windows, it went to a blank screen with VGA NO SIGNAL and then the monitor went to sleep mode displaying an orange power light. I restarted the PC by holding the power for 3 seconds and it won't display anything now. It just keeps saying VGA NO SIGNAL. If anybody can help I'd really appreciate it. It was working fine with the Sanyo TV so I don't know what's wrong.

My PC is a Gateway LX6810-01 with Windows 7 64 Bit.

Boot the computer to Advanced boot options: F-8 at startup.
Choose Low resolution setting.
Right-click Desktop. Click Screen Resolution.
Click on monitor and click Detect.
Reboot normally.

How will I get to safe mode if I can't see any display as soon as I turn it on?

The machine does not even show a BIOS splash-screen when the power button is pressed?

EDIT: What I meant to write is to boot to Advanced Boot Option by pressing F-8 at boot. Then choose low resolution option. Then detect monitor in UI.

It doesn't show any BIOS screen at all. No signal the entire time

Does the previous monitor still play nice with Windows?

Are we talking on-board graphics or aftermarket card?
