A Brief History: - Formatted PC last night due to recurrent startup errors, a few virus alerts (although I think they were keygens - damn AVG!) - Monitor went on standby during XP installation, and wouldn't come back on even though the PC was on etc - Every time I turn the PC off or reboot it the PC will boot but the monitor WON'T ever ever come on. - I HAVE to unplug the power leads and wait a few minutes then reboot. Then it works although I think it stays on standby a bit too long and takes awhile to 'find' the signal from the PC - My PC is also ridiculously slow! I have 1GB of RAM but its only running at 200MHz when it has a 400MHz capacity. I can update the BIOS myself and hopefully that will help the slowness problem (I can't change Frequency in BIOS manually for some reason) What I need help with is the monitor problem. I've also tried a substitute monitor that I know is working and had the same problem. Bad power supply I've only had it a year and a half or two years Help!
