Why is my computer turning off and on by itself and my monitor is in constant sleep mode.

Question

My computer kept restarting by itself (while I was in the middle of things). It would just turn off and turn on by itself.... The last time, the monitor just went into sleep mode. Now, when I turn the computer on, the monitor won't wake up. It stays in constant sleep mode. The computer sounds like it's turning on, but it doesn't seem to be sending a signal to the monitor to wake up... Also noticed that only the DVD-ROM drive (primary) lights when I push the power button. The CD-RW and Floppy lights don't light up at all. Please help!

You should check your power supply to see if you have alot of equipment working from one circuitry Also, you may have bad monitor, if so you have to have that changed Another thing is that you could have video card problems, check your connection.
