I turn on my comp and fans run, all drives can be heard runnning, but the monitor never turns on. i have checked all connections, and even tried it with or without an agp vid card, because mine has integrated video as well. No matter what i do, the monitor just stays off no matter how long i wait. everything else seems to be running fine. I tried to take out all cards and drives except for floppy and try to boot, and still there is nothing. i have tried resetting CMOS battery and changing power supply voltage, i just cant get it to work. please help

I actually had the same problem, the computor would run fine and everything but the monitor just wouldn't work. I hooked the monitor up to another computor and it worked fine, but whenever it was hooked up to my comp it wouldn't turn on. It would go into its power saving mode. My computor also had intergrated video, plus a 3d card, neither one would make the monitor work. I did all the stuff you did but nothing would work, in the end I got mad and formatted the hard drive, once after that everything worked fine... hopefully someone else on here will have a better solution for you. My computor is on a network so it was easy to back up all my files, depending on your setup it could be a real pain. Good luck.

So the monitor never turns on? With mine it would turn on when ever you rebooted so I could go into setup and stuff, but the minute that it would start to load windows the monitor would turn off. If the monitor doesn't come on at all then your monitor might be broke. When you press the power button on the monitor does the light come on? If no lights come on I would say your monitor is no good.

I HAVE A GATEWAY PII 266 TOWER W AGP I turn on my comp and fans run, all drives can be heard runnning, but the monitor never turns on. i have checked all connections, and even tried it with or without an agp vid card, JUST PCI AND ISA CARDS No matter what i do, the monitor just stays off no matter how long i wait. everything else seems to be running fine. I tried to take out all cards and drives except for floppy and try to boot, and still there is nothing. i have tried resetting CMOS battery and changing power supply voltage, AND CHANGED HARD DRIVES i just cant get it to work. please help

-just an idea......
Check the mobo to make sure that the video is configured properly. I beleive that some boards use jumper settings to configure onboard video vs. PCI/AGP (although I can't find any examples). If the jumper is set wrong, it could be preventing any video display.
If that doesn't work (or can't be done), I would definately suspect the monitor. Most have a light that illuminates when the monitor is switched on (even if not connected). Is there any life at all visible in your monitor?
Unless you have onboard video, I can promise that removing the video card will NOT fix your problem.
However, it is possible that the AGP slot has gone bad. Have you tried a PCI or (ugh) an old ISA video card? If either will yield a display, at least you'll know the monitor is OK.
As I asked above, is there any life at all in your monitor?
Many monitors have a fuse in them that could be blown. I've never done it, but I hear of people that have replaced the little bugger and solved their problem. Just be aware, if you remove the cover on the monitor, any warranty is gone. And make sure it has been unplugged for a LONG time. The capacitors in a typical CRT can hold a charge for quite a while, and if they discharge into you.......

I have tried my monitor with my other pc and it worked fine, and i dunno if its agp slot because it did the same with both of my motherboards. No matter what i did with any motherboard, it just will not display anything.

Am getting the same problem myself in a number of Pcs all of which have onboard display cards.The monitor always works with the other machines , so any problem with the monitor is ruled out.
Could it be due to bios or something? Please let me know the solution too

I am also having problems my monitor works fine on 1 computer but when i hook it up to the 166 I am fixing for friend it flashes but thats it.I have tried other video cards that work but still nothing.what could it be?

I'm not sure what changing power supply voltage means, but you might want to try changing the power supply itself. When the go bad, they may supply enough power to spin drives, etc, but not enough to power the cpu. If you have access to a known good power supply, try taking the one you have in there out, and try the new one.

I had the same type problem with a Compaq desktop..No beep no nothing just fans running. Not even a light on the mouse.
I tried all the suggested stuff and then as a last ditch I reseated the memory and guess what!
It works fine!

My monitor has started to "wobble" when I first turn on the computer or when it comes out of the "slumber" state. After less than a minute of being wobbly, the monitor stops wobbling. The monitor is about 4 years old.
(1)Is there anything I can check?
(2)Does this likely mean that the monitor is about to go?

mine worked fine too until i powered down last night. when i booted back up i got a message on my monitor of "No signal detected or cable disconnected". I've checked all cables but to no avail. I left it running for about 30 minutes and on its own it rebooted itself and the monitor started working again. Then i powered down again and this morning it has started doing the same thing again. this time the monitor only gives me the previous msg and wont boot. the cpu is running but no display. i've tried removing the 3dforce card and putting it back in but still nothing. i do get the green power light on the monitor but thats about all. after the initial no signal msg the screen turns green then red then other various colors but still shows nothing else. any ideas????
