    Im having a major problem with my computer. Its been working fine for abour 6 months but yesterday i restarted it and the monitor would not turn on after the restart. I check the monitor itself on another computer and it worked fine. I had this problem once before but it fixed itself within a few minutes, but this time im having no such luck. I have no idea whats going on. Any suggestions are welcome.

    I have a ASUS A7N8X motherboard and ASUS 4800SE videocard if that helps.

    thanx in advance

    If you have any other videocards lying around I'd start there - try using a different one. If you have onboard video you could just remove the 4800SE - assuming you didn't disable onboard video in BIOS.

    If it happened in the past it might have just been hinting that your video card was on its way out.

    It's very rare to see a monitor fail.

    You might just try reseating the video card.
