This question was answered on June 17, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Check to see if the cable to the monitor is working properly or if working at all.

Besides checking the cable, try to get another moniter and plug it in to you pc If it works it can be the moniter, If the same problems persist then it can also be a bad video card.
