Then your problem is most likely with the video card. If a known good monitor doesn't work on it, then you have a problem with either the built-in card itself, or the motherboard or some drivers.
I thought it may be the video card but it all one piece with the motherboard. I tryed a monitor that I knew worked and that didn't work either.

Well if he says the video card is attached to the motherboard then that would just make it a motherboard issue. azmike37,when you boot the computer does it make an inital beep? How certain are you that the computer is fully loading into windows? Have you attempted to shut down just by using your keyboard after you have felt it has loaded into windows? Also as Walkman suggested the make and model would help also, or even just the pc model itself.

P.O.S.T (Power On Self Test)
He says it doesn't post. So how would adding a video card solve this issue, when the pc wouldn't boot far enough to recognize it. Please enlighten me.

You still missed the most important thing...... If it doesn't P.O.S.T, he'll never get into the BIOS to change anything.
Just to clear this up since these last few post have been anything but useful, I'm not suggesting he call his motherboard trash. Post #7 pretty much states what I belive he should do. All in all azmike37, if the suggested methods of solving this issue fail, I would just simply call Asrock, and chat them up to get thier opinion. They offer decent boards so I'm sure their support can't be far off. Good luck.
