BadBoy7: hmm you could be lucky then and it might just be the fan ... but might still be the complete graphics card

Hrqls: well when it comes on it does show the screen where it shows the beginning loading for it to show if the connection is on then it says no and goes to sleep

BadBoy7: then my guess would be the graphics card .. which is costly :-(

or maybe just the fan on the graphics card if you are lucky .. but then it would show some screen at first and lose it later

BadBoy7: it could be someone (or something like a cat) accidently touched the button on the monitor disabling the autoselect

another issue could be the graphics card : if thats broken then the monitor gets the power, but no signal from the pc and you get this message

BadBoy7: it coud be manually set to vga or dvi while the connected cable is the other type
try selecting all your input channels in your monitor settings

Subject: Re: question??
BadBoy7: Off the top of my head, try the detaching and reconnecting cable from your PC to the monitor, that is often the answer...maybe replace it if you have a spare, especially if it looks knackered

The same with the monitor, try a different one if possible.

If neither of those rectify the problem then it points to your PC itself..... take the side of your PC and try removing & putting the Video card back in.

After that, you are running out of possibility's, either the power supply or motherboard

Subject: Re:
Bernice: You should have a key on your keyboard normally to the right of the F12 key that says Print Screen....
Once you have pushed that button it will store a picture of whats on your screen. If i remember rightly in XP you will then have to open Paint or a similar program and Paste it into there, then you can save.
Just in case you didnt know XP is long out of date now & Microsoft do not provide any backup or support for it
